Placemat Garden Flag

Good morning!

I’ve always wanted a garden flag to add some personality to my front landscaping and recently heard of an idea to use a place mat to create your own. I grabbed a neutral color place mat at the store and went with the idea and it worked out great! If you don’t have a vinyl cutter or heat press you could use a stencil and some fabric paint to easily make one too.

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.

Happy New Year!

As the New Year is beginning, Elisabeth and I have been reflecting on our first year as Texas Craft House. It’s almost hard to believe that 5 years ago we started our journey as a humble little blog at, Connoisseur of Creativity.  Then last year (New Year’s Eve to be exact!), we decided to give ourselves a little makeover and move our “operation” to a website, updated with easier to access pages and a whole new look and name – and WOW what a year it has been!

How to Make Your Own Felt Christmas Stockings

Texas Craft House

Hi Everyone!

It is Christmas in July, right? I wanted to share these stockings I made a couple of years ago for my hubby, myself and our cats – and now that we have two new Scottie puppies I want them to have stockings as well! I went ahead and took step by step photos this time so that anyone else can make their own stockings too. I loved the elf stocking shape and could not find stockings in the store that I liked or where reasonably priced so I decided ‘Why not try to make my own?’

No-Sew Tutu

Texas Craft House

Today’s craft was so much fun! I went to my sister in law’s baby shower this weekend and she absolutely loved my wooden stackable cross that I made earlier this month. I loved seeing all of her other gifts. Right away I noticed a tutu that was gifted to her and investigated. 🙂 I realized it was made out of a simple headband, tulle, and there was absolutely no sewing involved. This shocked me because tutus can be so expensive! Well not anymore! My tutu craft cost LESS than $5.00! It would make the perfect gift for any little girl in your life. 🙂
