Rope Bird's Nest

Hi Everyone,

I found a tutorial on how to make a bird's nest with rope. It was so fun and easy to make. You basically just use hot glue as you go around and around until you get to the size you want. I added some brown moss and those cute speckled eggs. Everything was purchased at the Dollar Tree.

I think it came out adorable.

Thank you for stopping by.

Another Burlap Wreath

Hello Everyone,

A friend of mine saw the previous wreath that I made for my cousin and loved it so much, she asked if I could make one for her. She wanted yellow also, but with tulips. I ended up painting a small clay pot yellow, added some greenery to it, then added a little bird. I also added a bird to the bow. The form is a circle that I purchased at the Dollar Tree, along with the tulips, the clay pot and the birds. The loop flowers are made from felt which I had in my stash, along with the pearls. The burlap and lace ribbon is from Walmart, the burlap and polka dot ribbon is from the Dollar Tree. I ended up adding a small twine bow to the pot after I took this picture. It added a little something to it. I absolutely love this wreath and so did my friend.

I think I might stock up on embellishments, like more flowers and birds and such. I try to make them to the liking of the receiver, so that sometimes means I have to go out and purchase specific items, but it would still be nice to have some things on hand.

Thank you for stopping by.

Valentine Burlap Wreath

Hi Everyone,

This was my first burlap wreath. It is made on a heart shaped wreath that I bought at the Dollar Tree, along with the quilted heart stickers. I found a tutorial on You Tube that was one of the easier ways to do it for me. I really didn't know how to decorate it, so I just added ribbon and some hearts. I think it came out pretty good. I will definitely jazz it up for next year.

Thank you for stopping by.

Altered Love Sign

Hi Everyone,

This sign was a brown paper bag color. I decided to cover the front with this darling sunflower scrapbook paper. I used mod podge to glue it on, then put another layer of mod podge on top to seal it. I lighted sanded the edges. I then painted the sides and back with a light blue paint that matched the paper.

Valentine Heart Trees

These were made using Dollar Tree tree forms, glitter heart, stick hearts and candle holders. I took the styrofoam tree form and hot glued all the glitter hearts onto it starting at the bottom alternating each row of hearts upside down and right side up. The heart picks were made  all ready. I stuck them into the top of the form. I hot glued a candle holder for the base.

Flower Burlap Pocket on a Frame

Hi Everyone,

I can't even believe I haven't posted since July. It's amazing how fast time goes by. Anyway, I'm not going to try to make excuses. I think the main thing is, I used to be on a Design Team, and the hostess passed away. That kind of through me for a loop. I still can't believe it. A lot of us were devastated. She was the sweetest, kindest person and she is very much missed.

So, I've been following a lot of You Tube gals that do Dollar Tree diy's and I have definitely caught that bug. I've made quite a few things, but have not posted them. So I decided that I am going to post my creations on my blog to get going with it again.

This sweet project was from one of the sweet girls on You Tube. I ended up making my mother one and she loves it. I bought the frame and the flowers from Dollar Tree, I added scrapbook paper to the background and made the little pocket from burlap. Then I used hot glue to adhere everything.

So easy and such a cute way to dress up a frame.
