    Tuesday Tutorial: Valentine Heart Wreath

    I’ve never been one to decorate for holidays (except Christmas) but in the past year I’ve really loved making wreaths so I decided to make a heart Valentine wreath for my front door. Today I’m going to show you how to make your own as well! I got all of my materials from Hobby Lobby and it was $10 for supplies, which made two wreaths. You’ll need: – wire heart wreath form – thick yarn (or ribbon) – ruffle trim (2yd) – hot glue gun – scissors – cardboard (for wreath #2) Start off by tying a long strand of yarn to the bottom of your wreath form.

Sales have really slowed, and I have no…

    Tuesday Tutorial: Button Heart Sign

    On Saturday I made this cool sign out of a scrap piece of wood, some fabric and buttons. The funny thing is, at about step #5 of this project I realized it would match in my room! Up until then I just figured I’d find somewhere in the house to put it. I guess the new room decor is still new to my brain. For this project you’ll need a piece of wood, fabric, a staple gun (or you can hot glue it), buttons & a hot glue gun. Here we go! Piece of wood from Hubby’s scrap pile. Cut your fabric so that it’ll go around to the back.…
