Easter Hair Accessories

Happy Easter Week! What fun things do you have planned for this weekend?  I must say, I enjoy being a mom to a girl.  Sans the drama and the whining – it can be so much fun.  Kayla loves to primp and enjoys matching outfits (think Punky Brewster).  So when I made her these bunny rabbit hair bows last year, as well as one to give a friend, she was ecstatic.  So much so she even modeled for some pictures.  Plus these are a great last minute craft you can whip up in 5 minutes.

DIY Felt Flower Yarn Wreath

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.

Trash Can Fresh Flower Door Vase

Well, hello there again!  It’s Carmel from Our Fifth House, and I’m back today to share a true trash to treasure story. As in I literally turned a trash can……..into something I truly treasure! I’ve been wanting a door bucket that could hold water for fresh clippings and flowers for a really long time.   While I was shopping at Target one day a trash can caught my eye because it had the perfect side handles that would allow me to loop a piece of rope through in order to hang it on the door.
