Good Morning! I have been so busy working with a few different clients, helping them to refresh and update their homes. But, yesterday I finally found some time to break out my glue gun again! I made this cute little shamrock plant to add a festive touch to our window sill. All I used was green & white felt, wire, scissors, and glue.
Cut out some hearts. Use glue to give them a little dimension. Then, glue the heart shaped clover leaves to your wire. I also made larger clovers by turning my hearts upside-down. Get creative with it.
Then stick them all into a cute little cup or pot with some foam in the bottom. And done! A super quick afternoon craft!
After making several halloween costumes this month, I have a bunch of leftover felt scraps. The thrifty girl in me would hate to just toss it all, so I decided to put it to good use and make some felt coasters! This is a super simple craft, even the little kiddos can help out. Plus you can sit and do it while watching a movie.
All you need are scraps of felt, cut into strips (try and get the strips to all be the same width). Then a little fabric glue or hot glue, and some time.
Start by lining the inside of a felt strip with a bead of glue, then just roll. Keep doing this until you get your desired size, alternating colors.
You can make larger ones to use for hot pots and pans, and why not even place mats?
Good afternoon! I am a little late posting today because I was having so much fun making this lamp shade for Sydney’s room. When we moved, some of our shades were damaged, and I have been meaning to revamp and fix them for the past year. Well, when I saw this adorable lampshade from Anthropologie, I was immediately inspired to create a similar look and finally fix one of the shades! The flowers perfectly covered up cracks in the shade, and now it looks as good as new. Continue reading →
If you remember last week’s Favorite Things Post, I shared some great Moroccan style accent pillows from ABC Home. I loved them, and wanted to try my own version using felt. Sydney’s room can’t have enough color, so I made this bright pink, yellow, and cyan version for her sofa. It works perfectly in her room! I chose to use a sewing machine, but a no sew version could be done using fabric glue to carefully adhere the felt cutouts to basic throw pillows. Here is how I made it: Continue reading →
