This year has been amazing. As many of you may know, we started out 4 years ago as a blog called, “Connoisseur of Creativity.” We loved that blog and will always remember where and how we began, but we decided with the new year that we needed a new name, new look and we needed to really start turning our dreams into reality. Texas Craft House was born in January and we hit the ground running – we are crafting more, blogging more, doing craft booths, opened an Etsy account, and started teaching craft classes at a local art and craft studio. This was a wonderful opportunity and we had so much fun teaching our first class on how to make Elisabeth’s very popular Americana wreath.
With Memorial Day coming up, and Fourth of July right behind that- I needed a patriotic wreath for my doorway.
I love America and I love Texas! I’ve been wanting an American wreath for my front door for quite some time now and found inspiration from Pinterest. I bought all of my supplies from Michaels because they were cheaper there.
Ever since I can remember those little pastel colored plastic eggs have been an integral part of Easter. They were what held all of the tasty treats we hunted for on Easter Sunday. So when it came time to make an Easter wreath, I figured those would best represent the holiday, and not just look like any other spring wreath.
Last year I made this cute Easter wreath with a moss rabbit on it and my mom loved it! This year she let me know that she wanted one for herself too, so I’m sharing how I made both of them!
My sister came over and wanted to make a wreath in honor of the upcoming baseball season. She scored (no pun intended!) a bucket full of antique baseballs from one of her friends and knew they would be prefect to display in this wreath… AND… I knew just the bow to top it with.
I recently found a picture of a St. Patrick’s Day wreath on Pinterest that I fell in love with… but I couldn’t find a website or tutorial anywhere so… I just made my own tutorial using the picture as my guide.
