Rose Wreath

I’ve been seeing alot of wreaths in blog land for quite a while and have always wanted to make one, but never could decide on exactly what I wanted to do. There are so many creative ideas out there! Then I was playing around with fabric & felt and came up with this:

Made entirely from felt and some areas of fabric and felt fused together. I LOVE it!! It was so much fun to make.

My home doesn’t really have alot of pink in it, so this one will hang in my craft room for now. My bedroom gets the next one, alot of light blue, cream and brown. Maybe one for the livingroom as well. I have alot of ideas for these fantastic roses. Thinking about also putting some OOAK in my etsy store. What do you think?

Total cost for this wreath is estimated at $3. I paid $1 for the foam wreath at the dollar store. Fabric on hand, includes 72" felt and fat eighth of fabric approximately $2 ( thats highball).

Linking this week to the blogs on my link party page.

Thanks!!

Easter Cupcakes

I made vanilla cupcakes with vanilla buttercream for Easter. The buttercream tasted too much like powdered sugar. I mean it is made from powdered sugar, but that’s pretty much all I could taste. Everyone really enjoyed them, but I think I will try a different frosting recipe next time. I love the “cake” part alot. Its a great recipe!

I had purchased this printable Easter party set and made the flags out of it.

Beautiful Jasmine & The Yard

I planted the Jasmine 2 years ago and they are gorgeous! Pink Jasmine. They vine everywhere. I love how they have coiled into the bench.
