Stitch Ornaments are Back!

Yasss! These are the best $1 DIY ornaments ever! So excited they are back at AC Moore!  They have the same ones as last year along with these new ones.

I still have a few kits left in my hoarding closet from last year, but I wasn’t going to let that stop me from picking up some of the new ones. This is the first of more to come…

Felt and Poinsettia Wreath

Happy Labor Day! I have been doing some cleaning, reorganizing, and of course… buying. There is a going out of business sale at a local fabric store and I just had to stop in, TWICE! There were really great deals on zippers and I picked up a ton of upholstery fabric samples. Also, I bought possibly too much red felt so I decided to get started on a project.

These dies are My Favorite Things POINSETTIA. I have used this set before on several other projects.  I highly recommend them! They work well for flowers for any occasion, not just Christmas!

During my cleanup I discovered a couple of wreaths I didn’t remember wrapping. Here’s the one I picked. It is a super chunky white yarn. I have started exclusively using straw wreaths and chunky yarn to wrap my wreaths. This wreath measures 8″.

Now here’s the fun part if you’d like to follow along. All you will need is:

Cut 10 large flowers and 20 small flowers.  Stack two small flowers on top of the larger flower and place three pins in the center. Be sure to push the pins securely in the wreath. poinsettiawreath03

It should begin to look something like this–poinsettiawreath04

It looks pretty cool with just the three, so you may get the urge to stop here. I decided to keep going. The size of your wreath will of course determine how many flowers you will ultimately need. Be sure to adjust your supplies accordingly. Here is my final result!

So my holiday project is complete. I hope you will give it a try. If you have any suggestions on what I can do with my remaining mountain of red felt, drop a comment 😉

Whooo’s ready for Halloween?

Halloween. I’m not sure how to feel about it now as an adult. The past 5 years we have had 2 trick or treaters. Total. Two! And last year we had the full size candy bars and everything. No one came. Or maybe we just didn’t notice them… our doorbell was and still is broken.Halloween Tote
