Spring Burlap Wreath

Happy Easter!

Here is a charming spring wreath with alternating colors of yellow and blue with a pop of pink from a big, fun bow. Today’s tutorial requires no glue, just a straw wreath form and floral pins. My finger tips thanked me for leaving the hot glue boxed away for this craft!

Wood Block Conversation Hearts

I was wanting to find some fun home decor crafts in honor of Valentine’s Day. When I started searching through Pinterest I couldn’t find anything that I really liked. Everything seemed to look like child crafts or even a bit cheese-y. There were many wreath choices but I was wanting something for home decor. After some thinking I had the idea to paint wood blocks to resemble conversation hearts. The result turned out great!

Home Sweet Home Vinyl Window Sign

I am so excited to show off my new toy, the Silhouette Cameo. My family chipped in together to give it to me for Christmas. This machine is AMAZING. They found it on the Silhouette website on Black Friday and the bundle came with a starter tool kit, 1 month of free designs, the vinyl starter kit and Silhouette Mint (that post is coming!). I found the sketch pens at Hobby Lobby and bought them with my 40% off coupon but am excited to learn how to use other pen brands (such as Sharpie) with the different pen holders I also found.

Easy DIY Christmas Ornament Wreath

This is BY FAR the easiest way to make an ornament wreath. I tried making one earlier in the week with glass ornaments and hot glue and let me just say… that was a big, giant nightmare. Make it easy on yourself and stick to the plastic ornaments and don’t even look at the glue. I used about 70 ornaments to make this wreath. I have about 30 of the smallest ornaments left in my package and I’m thinking about making another with just the small ones.
