Laura from Finding Home is back to share her wood slice mini wreaths with us. They are super charming and a way to bring some rustic into your table or wall decor. Laura loves natural and reclaimed elements in her home. I can just imagine her family (who I have met!) enjoying a meal around this gorgeous table setting. And there is no need to chop wood yourself – read on to find out how she did it.
Happy November my friends! Halloween is done and we are now onto the gratitude month. There are so many things I am grateful for. I realize how blessed my life is and I am super grateful to share bits of it with you. Thank you to those readers that literally come daily to check out what I do. You mean the world to me.
I am always looking for new ways to display photos. I love unique ideas and this one from new contributor Karianne from Thistlewood Farms takes the cake. She used a grapevine wreath and mini frames to create this keepsake wreath for her home. Isn’t it just lovely?
I might be obsessed with making felt wreaths. I just love playing with felt in the fall. I love the texture and weight of it. And it just seems right to make a zillion felt wreaths. They make great gifts and are very simple to make especially if you have some sort of die cutting machine. This week I am going to talk about the difference between the Silhouette machine that I use so often, and the Sizzix machine that I have been playing with lately. What I love about this felt flower wreath is that you can customize it for the season by changing out the flowers. All you have to do is remove the pins.
Is it too early to start decorating for Halloween? I usually say September 15th in this house, what say you? This wreath could easily be made for any season with a different color felt and ribbon. It reminds me of those circle ruffle wreaths that were so popular (and still are!) are couple of years back. I love the ruffle-y texture that the flower shape gave on this one.
No one loves a good paint stick project more than me. I have hung my jewelry on paint sticks, organized my cupboards with them, and even made a frame out of some. I have found another who adores those 12” – 14” sticks of solid wood as much as I do…(enter from stage left) Karianne from Thistlewood Farms. She already showed you the amazing herringbone side table she made with paint sticks that you all thought was fabulous. Today she is back, chopping them up and making a wreath.
Karianne is back showing us how to preserve time in the form of a burlap photo wreath. And when the mood strikes you, or your son or daughter begs for you to change out their picture from the one where they have no front teeth you can do so easily by untying the ribbon and adding more photos.
