Here is an ornament wreath I made. I used a wire hanger that my sweet hubby bent into a circle for me. I got all the ornaments at the dollar store. I needed close to 60 ornaments for this. A package of 12 ornaments at the dollar store is yup you guessed it a dollar. Grand total for this project $5. I am not happy with the ribbon bow part. I am going to play around with it some more so that the hanger part is hidden. I was just excited that it was just about finished so I took a picture and shared. Here is a great tutorial to make this. http://www.eddieross.com/eddie_ross/2009/12/ornament-wreath-winner.html
Have a great Sunday!
I am fortunate that I used to work in a frame shop in Hawaii. Ten years later I still have all my lovely frames. However, I am looking for a little update on said frames. I have been busy painting some frames and creating such crafty useful decor. My most recent transformation is this...
I removed the glass and backing, added eye hooks and strung rustic string across. Then, I added some mini clips. I painted it a sage green then sanded a bit to distress. I had an idea to hang it in my kitchen where I can clip a recipe on it. I love having my recipe right there to look at as I am cooking. Of course my two cute kids are awesome inspiration to look at also. Love it! Hoping santa brings our family a new camera so my pictures will look a whole lot better. Cheers!
My sweet little girl recently turned three. She wanted a rainbow cake. I found one on a blog I can't recall which one right now. I will give credit when I find her lovely blog again. I think it turned out cute and she loved it! This was my first attempt at a six layer cake.
