Holiday Wreath


Home Made Sign

I needed to make a “clean/dirty” sign for the dishwasher.

I found a decorative piece of wood at Joann Fabric on sale. I had paint already at home, a potato chip bag clip and string.

This was the end result….

No Sew Tutu

I found a video on how to make easy no sew tutus.

Materials: scissor, tulle (6 in by 25 yard spools), elastic (1/2 in wide), needle and thread to sew the eclectic (that is the only sewing).

You can use 2 or 3 different colors of tulle.

For one, I used pink, purple and red for my six year old great-niece. And for her 4 year old sister, I used pink, blue and purple.

It took me about an hour to make them (cutting pieces, knot tying the strips of tulle (rotating the colors).

More Wreaths

A friend of mine has a birthday on July 11th, so I made a wreath with her favorite things. She likes the color yellow, happy faces and playing slots. So….I put yellow roses, two sunflowers with happy face stickers in the center and stickers that read “casino” and slot machine panel. Pretty creative huh?

Then, I made a Fourth of July wreath for the front door. It came out nicely.

Cloth Wreath

Material: 10 inch wire wreath, fabric cutter, ruler and strips of fabric (I used two different patterns).

Cut the fabric in 2 1/2 by 8 inch strips. Then start tying them in a knot rotating the patterns. I followed a video on YouTube. Easy, simple and helpful.

I started around September and with a lot of procrastinating and cutting all the material. I started going back on this project mid February and finished it mid March.

Live Laugh Love Art

Hubby and I had a “glass blowing” class for a date night at “Live Laugh Love Art” in Tigard, Oregon.

Before class started, we had to watch a safety video. We wore safety goggles. The room was HOT, due to the ovens. It felt like a sauna but with heat. Not easy to handle at first. There are clothing requirements (no open toe shoes, no shorts). Most people wore jeans, t shirt/casual shirt and sneakers.

We each made, with the guidance of our instructor, a tumbler. Mine is the orange and white and hubby is the red and white. Then the instructor made the vase and heart paper weight.
