Burlap Halloween Wreath

October 1st!! Halloween is almost here! Well…not really “almost” here. But we all know how fast these fall and winter months go by. Pretty soon it will be Halloween, then turn around and Thanksgiving, and then before you can blink it is Christmas! Agh!!
These 3 end of the year… – Check it out at http://www.32turns.com/burlap-halloween-wreath/

Look at the EGGS now!

Okay, so remember those jute eggs from a few days ago. Look at them now! They were super cute just on their own, but check out this spring wreath! ADORABLE! I am in absolute LOVE with it!

Spring Wreath, She Made it

My neighbor Melissa and I put this beauty together last night! We glued the jute eggs onto the wreath with hot glue. Added a cutie little nest we found at JoAnn’s. Tied some ribbon and a bow on it. And my favorite part…..the SIGN! Doesn’t it just make the wreath?

 

We used paint sticks (you know the free ones from the hardware store, I always grab a few when I am there, never know what you might need them for!) This sign used 2 paint sticks. We cute them down to size, and them glued them together with gorilla glue (one of my faves Smileit will glue anything together!) Then we sanded it by hand just a bit to hide the line where the sticks met and then painted it white. A little glaze to distress it and it was so cute. The word “Spring” cut out with my cricut in pink vinyl completed the look. Isn’t that font cute? It is Boingo, and it might be my new favorite!

 

So what do you think? I think I may need one for myself!!!! How many wreaths can you hang on your door? I already have one…..would TWO look funny? One of the outside of the door and one on the inside????? Smile

Spring Facelift!

I am LOVING my burlap wreath! Today I finished giving it a Spring facelift. I am so excited that it is spring…..except that here at my house today is was more like SUMMER, WHAT? Summer already!!! Yes, it was 100 degrees today!

But, I digress, back to spring. Spring colors are so fun, and fresh and they just make me feel happy and smooshy inside. Don’t you know what I mean?

I was going to hang this cutie birdhouse I painted inside the frame, but it just didn’t fit. So, now I am off to find another use for this little guy. Any ideas?

So I used a chipboard letter “S” and glued paper on, then of course DISTRESSED it, then hot glued it to a frame I got at the dollar store (spray painted white) then used my cricut to cut out “pring” in pink vinyl and there you have it. One Springy Wreath for my door!

Burlap Wreath With Interchangeable flowers

I saw this awesome jute and burlap ruffle wreath featured on Tatertots and Jello (one of my favorite blogs) it was made by Myra over at the Casabella Project. Check her out, definitely some awesome stuff.

One of the biggest concerns I had (AND STILL HAVE!!) when I started this blog, is that I am good at recreating other peoples ideas…..but when it comes to creating my own  unique stuff, well it doesn’t happen as often as I would like. Inspiration for me usually strikes through seeing something wonderful that someone else has made. I am hoping that as I continue to craft and share those crafts with you that I will start having unique crafting inspiration all my own!

Here is the wreath I made, isn’t she beautiful!

I found the wreath at the dollar store and wrapped it in jute. This would have taken forever but my husband (who is a freakin’ rockstar) devised an ingenious way to speed up the wrapping process.

Here is a picture of him holding the wreath with his toes. If you do that and then wrap the jute loosely around the wreath over and over and over and over and over than you can scoot all the loosely wrapped jute over to the tightly wrapped jute and pull to tighten. Then take your hand that is not holding the jute and twist the jute around the wreath and then pull to tighten again. This method is SO much faster than trying to keep the jute tight with each individual wrap.

She Made it

One of my favorite things about this wreath (beside the cute factor) is that the flowers or embellishments are interchangeable! That way you can just change them out for each season.

I made the flowers and then glued a velcro dot to the back of each flower and to the wreath.

I will post a tutorial later this week on how to make these flowers, super easy!!!

Happy St. Patrick’s Day Everyone!
