Now remember I have two small kiddos, and a dog. So snacks, diaper changes, potty breaks, bottles, crying and screaming goes in with all this crafting fun!!!
With all of the ribbon finally attached it was time to fire up the glue gun to attach the embellishments. Here’s where Hubby got real nervous! He was convinced I was going to either burn myself or the leather seats.
This week’s post is a very exciting one for me! It may be it bit early for some to think about, but Christmas is right around the corner! WHAT?!? You ask? Halloween isn’t even over yet! I know, I know… but I’m so excited that I can’t even contain myself!!! I just reserved my spot at one of the biggest Holiday craft shows of the season here in Northwest Louisiana! It’s called “Mistletoe and More” and I am so, so, so excited to be a new vendor there this year! You can visit their site here. I will be selling several of my one of a kind furniture pieces, and many holiday home décor items. I have SO MUCH to do, and just couldn’t wait to get started! I started rummaging through my garage and craft room to see what I could create in few minutes (really, that’s all I had because my husband was ready to hit the road for our Fall Arkansas trip). I came up with this cute little Holiday Decoration.
You will need: Three scrap 2x4’s pieces. (2-six inch long pieces and 1-three inches long), red acrylic paint, sponge brush, sand paper, adhesive backed glitter paper, electronic cutter, ribbon and a Christmas tree bulb.
I like the distressed look, so I gave my blocks a light sanding around the edges. If you like a more clean, sharp look, skip the sanding. Add the glitter letters, ribbon and Christmas bulb, and tada! A beautiful, easy (and super quick) holiday decoration! Thanks for stopping by!!!
Start by placing a few of the larger floral stems. Place in the pumpkin where you would like it and then fill in the spaces with your smaller stems. Look at my little helper there isn’t he cute!
There it is all finish up! It's not it my craft room yet, I want to give the wax a few more days to cure before I put anything on top of it, but I am dying to get it in there! What do you think? I'd love to hear your comments! Thanks for stopping by!
Linking up to these great parties! Come check them out!
Let the adventure begin! I am so very excited to FINALLY get this blog up and running! But I’m even more excited that I will be able to start sharing my projects with everyone out there who is curious to see what goes on in that craft room of mine (believe it or not, it was actually a deciding factor in our recent home purchase! More to come on that later…). First, let me back up a little and introduce myself. My name is Dawn and I am a proud military wife and stay at home mother of two wonderful little boys. The oldest is two and half and the youngest is six months. They are my full time job! Where do I find time to craft you ask? Naptime! It is the most glorious time of the day.
I hope you have enjoyed my first blog post and will return to see my many, many upcoming projects. I have some amazing things in my craft room just waiting to get on the blog! Thanks for stopping by!
