As much as I would love to take credit for the following crafts I have to
admit I came across two different blogs from two different and creative women.
I love simple ideas that don't require a lot of time or hard to find supplies and decided
to give these two projects a try.
and you can see her version of the wreath here.
This is the wreath I made. I used a foam wreath from Hobby Lobby,
burlap cut into strips, a blue fabric with stars, a red gingham fabric, and a hot glue gun.
I am really happy with the results!!
I think it gives off a rustic yet cottage-y look!
I created red and blue stripes out of fabric rosettes.
The rosettes were easy. I just cut the fabric into 2 to 3 inch strips,
then tied a loose knot in one end to get started. Then I twisted the fabric occasionally while
wrapping it around the knot. I would use the hot glue gun to secure it about every two twists or so.
If interested in a more detailed tutorial on the rosettes let me know.
I was torn as to whether or not I should add the bow...
I'm glad I did, I like it!
I am excited I had the chance to get this done before baby #2 arrived!
So what do you think? Like the wreath?
The next craft was inspired by Taylor from Living in the Woods and you can find her
version of this project here. I love her site!
I started out with an old memory board I had in the garage.
I had a change of heart concerning the colors of this board so I
stashed it away to give to a friend or sell.
I am so glad I ended up keeping it and giving it a makeover!
Here is the board I made, I love using burlap!
I really like natural fabrics and the farmhouse appeal they create.
I love the texture. I have been trying to add lots of different
textures around the house.
I added a vintage-y "F" and a couple of paint samples
that I've been holding onto.
I will soon add a couple pictures of my sons to grace the board.
Thanks to the ladies who inspired me!
The projects were easy and fun to do.
Happy Blogging Ladies!
