You've probably realized by now that I love posting pictures. I enjoy looking at posts though that have pictures. I don't read books with pictures though. Anywho, I have a lot of catching up to do so I'm going to mostly do it with pictures.
Here's the progress on the craft room. The paint swatch looked lovely on the paper, on the walls, not so much. The yellow is a little... blinding... So we're going to tone it down this weekend. Makes for a nice base coat though.
Another styrofoam wreath project. I got this 7" wide red ribbon from DG and wrapped it around and secured it (hot glue of course). Oh, the wreath was a whole dollar, the ribbon was two.
Added corks and some berries and viola! I am actually really pleased with how this came out. It took a very few minutes and it's quite festive. I put $10 on it to sell just to see if I have any takers.
This is probably the first thing I made that is really *me* I can totally see this on my front door. Very simple. Just took the cheapy wreath and sprayed it with some spray snow and put different silver balls around it. Top it off with a silver ribbon and bow.
Button Icecicles. The hardest part about these was digging through the buttons to find the right sizes. I think they're terribly cute though.
Do you have any ideas as to where I can find cheaper tassles for these? I think the're adorable and I would make more of them, but the tassles were like 2 for 1.50 and that makes these cost more to make than they really should.
I believe I showed this before but I still thought it needed something. I think the solid red ribbon to hang it does it for me. If I did anything else to this it would be to put a couple buttons on the ribbon, but really I'm quite happy with it as it is.
Last and least... This little button tree. I just don't have big love for him. I kept trying to make him better but it just wasn't working. I must've replaced the top 5 times. Oh well... I guess I can't be in love with everything I make.
