A Coastal Wreath

 

So I found this awesome wreath form.  I wanted to make a coastal wreath for my home.  I had these really pretty large starfish, sand dollars  and I had these beautiful smaller seashells that I gathered from my trips to the beach.   I laid out all my supplies and started figuring out how I wanted to place them.  I LOVE the Lilly’s with the seashells.  They really are a striking combination.  Overall I absolutely love how it turned out.

I have to tell you though.  After I got it all made I hung it on my china cabinet by the little twine hangar that came with the wreath. I should have knows better.  That darn wreath’s hanger broke and it fell landing on my toes. Ugghhhhh and let me tell you it HURT but all I could think of in between limping and grabbing it up was please don’t break my seashells!!!!!! … thankfully.. I chipped ONE shell on the side.   I ended up with a bruised toe and some minor swelling that I put ice on.  So all is well and now I have it hanging by the wood on a heavy-duty hanger.  No more accidents. =)

I hope y’all like it!  Until Next time!

Have a great week,

A Eclectic Mix

This past month I have been lax on posting.  Today’s post is all about this months projects all in one place.  I have many different styles of projects and I hope something will speak to you.

First up in this pretty summery beehive wreath.    I loved making this.  This wreath is packed full of summer color.   I totally love the little bee’s on the flowers and the beehive.  It gives it such a cute whimsy effect.

I know it is super soon but I was in the mood to make a fall piece.  When I was in Texas last month I found this cute wall basket in an antique store.  I knew from the start I wanted it to be a fall arrangement.  I LOVE the versatility of this piece.   You can hang it on a wall or you use it on a table or shelf.  It really is a beautiful piece.   One of my favorites.

What to do with PVC Butterflies

I had this idea in my head that I wanted to do a black and white butterfly wreath.  I wanted it to be black and white.   I went in search of butterflies in black and white and I was able to find some pretty PVC ones on Ebay.

I am trying to use up some of my craft supplies because they are starting to burst at the seams and spill over into areas I do not want them to be.   I happened to have this embroidery hoop.  I pulled out my paints and painted it white.  Once it was dry I made a bow and of black  and white ribbons and attached some white flowers.  I then started applying some black and white butterflies in various positions around the wreath.

I think the end result was super cute and I think it would be a pretty decoration for a childs room or teen.  What do y’all think?   I am looking forward to hearing from you.

I hope y’all enjoyed my out of the box wreath!

See you next time,

Back from Vacation

Hello everyone!!! I am back from vacation visiting my family in Texas. OMGOSH was it HOT.  100 degrees hot and humid.    My sister had a beautiful baby girl and I wanted to visit her and her pretty big sister  my niece Claire.  My Nephew Dalton came in from Arkansas.  My Niece Ash came in from Houston.  My parents and my sisters were all there with their husbands.  It was a great trip.  I wanted to share a few pics.

This is the beautiful brand new baby.  Precious sweet baby.  Such a tiny beautiful girl.

The trip did seem to revolve around the new baby but we did have time to go Antique shopping.   I even did some crafting.  Claire and I made what was supposed to be a fairy garden but ended up being a trek through Snow Whites garden.  It was sooo much fun to make with her and so cute!!!.  Let me know what y’all think.  I went to every store in town looking for Fairies………. but this is what I found =)

I love that you can make walls really come alive with decorative pieces like this.  They are pretty and unique and can add lots of drama and style to your walls.

I was shopping around my favorite craft store last week and I came across some cotton stems and this cool farmhouse sign.  The only thing I really needed was a ribbon.  Off I went looking and I found it.  A black and tan check ribbon.  It was perfect.   What do y’all think?

I  have this newfound love for lambsear.  It’s so pretty and soft.  It makes really beautiful wreaths.  Below I took a primitive embroidery hoop and wove lambs ear around it and attached it with floral wire.  I then added some cotton and used my pretty ribbon. I totally loved how it turned out. I added some navy berries that I thought were the perfect touch.

I wanted to do a tobacco basket wall in my house.  So on one of my outings I found these great tobacco baskets for a good price.  I created my wall which I LOVE but I bought a couple of baskets to many.  I decided to make this pretty wall decoration out of them.  They make beautiful farmhouse decor.  They are also a great way to make your walls come alive.  I handmade the mini wreath and attached it to the center.
