Yarn Ball Wreath

Yarn Ball Wreath

I started with a wreath that I covered in burlap
I used multiple colors of yarn and different size foam balls. I used jute, cream color, gray, and then I took some of my smaller ornaments in a marroon sparkle color and filled in some of the holes.




My inspiration came from Pintrest. Here is the link to the blog

Christmas Wreath

Christmas Wreath
Here is a christmas wreath I made with red sparkly ribbon, which I wrapped around the wreath. I then added an ornament from Hobby Lobby in the middle and added some ribbon flowers to the front. Real Simple!

multiple projects

Here is a tray I made from a plaque that I bought at Hobby Lobby. I added some handles and some candle holders to the bottom to make into a tray. I added some lanterns I bought on sale at Lowes. this is a centerpiece on my dining room table

 I saw this done on multiple sites. It was so easy to do. I just inserted the balls into the lights and voila! See next picture for the lights on.


I saw this featured on pintrest. Here is the inspiration I received it from http://www.countryliving.com/crafts/projects/diy-home-decor-crafts#fbIndex1
My neighbor has a ton of these cable spools and I grabbed one to try it out. I bought some long dowls and cut them down. I did not have to glue any of them down because they fit so snug. I spaced them apart accordingly to how I wanted it spaced out. I am more of an "eye it"  type of person than measuring. I had spray painted this Rustoleum Heirloom White and gave it a shabby look by sanding the sides. I wanted the added height for the shelf for my little boy. I had a hard time finding something besides (expensive) casters. I finally found a wooden step stool at Goodwill. I took the top off of it. I placed a lazy susan piece(found at lowes/menards) on top of the stool and then placed the cable spool on top to make it turn. I could not get the paint to turn out great on the top of the spool so I covered it with some filler and material.
Thanks for stopping by!

 Here is a board that I picked up at a rummage sale, super cheap. I spray painted it black.


Here is the end result of the board. you can hang it on a wall or even a door handle. I used some scrap paper and modge podged it on the board, then I embossed a butterfly and glued it to the board.


I used a stampin up saying on the board as well.

Live Like You Mean It

I found some frosted glass coasters at Hobby Lobby for a $1.00 and thought I could make something with these! I embossed a pink flower with a little diamond in the middle of the blower and also embossed a silver butterfly. The saying at the bottom is "live like you mean it". Thanks for looking.

Baby Picture Holder


Above is a picture frame. You can insert a picture of your precious little girl. The saying in the bottom is hard to read but it says "sing me a lullaby"

Box Tray

Here is a wood box that I picked up from a Rummage sale for .50 cents. I was trying to figure out what to do with it. I have a finished project, once I get the picture taken I will post it. Cant wait for you to see the results. Thanks!

 Here is the finished product. I made it into a tray. I added some round feet to the bottom. Added some oil rubbed bronze handles and some decorative paper on the inside. Used Heirloom White spraypaint and sanded the feet and the tray to give it a shabby look. I stamped the tope of the tray with brown staz on ink and a french script type stamp.  The picture does not show the words going around the whole tray but it does go all the way around the top. Thanks for looking!
