my birthday is coming – simple valentine’s day wreath

Simple Valentine's Day Wreath

Since I was born on Valentine's Day, I have always had an aversion of anything heart and pink related. I've made a few crafts here and there but not really for my own home. This year, I decided to embrace it and add something for the front door since needed something before I put up a spring or summer wreath. For the time being, we have a simple Valentine's Day wreath to grace the front door. Shocker! It is heart-shaped and has pink in it! I might have been drinking when I made it. That is the … [Read more...]

this is halloween – diy skeleton wreath

Skeleton_Wreath1

Last year I made a cute bat wreath that I was fully intending on using this year until I came across some mini-skeletons on sale at Michaels. The wheels in my head started spinning and I decided to take the plunge on new skeleton wreath. I'm really digging skeletons this year. I may have bought quite a few this year. I bought a cheap grapevine wreath and spray painted it black with some satin spray paint I had on hand. I used some black yarn to attach the skeletons to the wreath once it … [Read more...]

pinterest semi-fail – succulent wreath or centerpiece tutorial

This post would be more appropriately titled "Why I am not allowed to play with plants". Seriously.

You see where this is going, right? Me + succulents = certain death.I found a great tutorial for making a succulent wreath and organized all my supplies since it seemed easy enough. A wire wreath form, moss and succulents. I went … [Read more...]

Happy 4th of July!! What are you fun plans for the day? We are doing projects around the house then having a picnic with friends on a golf course by our place.

valentine’s Day white fabric wreath

Hope you all had a lovely weekend! We've been pretty darn lazy these past two weekends. Not productive at all but to be honest, we needed the rest. I shared this wreath over at How to Nest for Less last month but since Valentine's Day (and my birthday!) is right around the corner, I wanted to share it here too. I made the white fabric wreath with the intention of making it simple enough that I could repurpose it for different holidays. Here is what it looks like now, all ready for Valentine's … [Read more...]

time for fall – grapevine wreath

I tried to not waste any time going from Halloween to "Fall" decor. South Florida really has no Fall but I should probably retire the bat wreath for a something a bit more in line with Thanksgiving. When I was wandering around Micheal's right before Halloween they were having a super sale and I had a great coupon to go along with it. I bought these three mini grapevine wreaths and fake flower/seed things for under $4. Score!So I didn't find a huge wreath but that doesn't mean it can't look good … [Read more...]
