Felt Succulent Wreath

Hello makers! I’m looking to freshen up my front door for the new year. What better way to do that than with a new Felt Succulent Wreath?! Here’s my first blogged about craft of the new year… finally!

Isn’t my wreath so pretty? I don’t know about you, but I have a huge love for succulents. I’m not the greatest gardener, though I try, so I thought I’d figure out a way to create a succulent project without having to plant anything at all. 

For this craft you will need:

I used my Spellbinders Platinum 6 and the succulent dies to cut the succulents out of felt.

(Scroll to the end of the post for a video tutorial!)

Look how clean the Platinum 6 cut through felt!! Now stack them up…

Then glue them together with hot glue. Make sure you pinch them at the bottom!

And finally, I hot glued the felt succulents all over the heart shaped wreath. 

And viola!

My wreath is complete and ready to hang on our front door! But it would look great on a mantel or window or mirror. Where would you put it?

Didn’t the felt succulents turn out so pretty? I love the look of the 3 greens together. All in all this craft took about 30 minutes to complete, start to finish, thanks to my Platinum 6 for cleanly and easily cutting out my felt. Not too shabby if you ask me! Watch the video for a visual tutorial of the entire craft!

 

What’s hanging on your front door right now?

I received the Platinum 6 and dies from Spellbinders to review and share on my blog. All opinions are 100% my own and I only share products and companies that I truly love and think you will too.

Tips: Using Reusable Wreath Forms

Welcome to another week of Must Have Craft Tips! Every week my co-hosts and I gather up our favorite craft tips to share with you! This week it’s my turn (Bev from Flamingo Toes) and I’m sharing one of my favorite holiday Must Have Craft Tips – Using Reusable Wreath Forms!

Save Space with Reusable Wreath Forms

While I LOVE decorating for the holidays, and I completely decorate the house for the fall Holidays especially, sometimes storing all these things gets to be a problem. You can only have so many boxes of just wreaths, am I right? Especially if you’re like me and don’t want to use the same wreaths every year. I like to change things up!

My solution is to use reusable wreath forms! These wreaths were made with pins – so that the ribbons and decorations can be removed at the end of the holiday!

For this Spider Halloween wreath, all the fabric is pinned in place. The doily and rick rack are pinned to the back as well. Easy peasy!

Eeek Spider Halloween Wreath

Eeeek Glam Spider Halloween Wreath

This Ruffles and Burlap Fall Wreath is made with a straw wreath form, but it’s also all pinned in place. The pins make a great decoration on the front too!

Ruffles and Burlap Fall Wreath

Once the holiday is over, I remove all the ribbons and other decorations and store them in a gallon sized ziploc. Then I keep all the ziplocs in a small tub with the wreath forms that I use. It’s super easy and they take up so much less space!

These wreaths aren’t for Fall or Halloween, but they are all made with reusable wreath forms and pins!

Spring Wreath

Oh boy. I can’t believe spring has finally sprung. Even though it was a very short winter here in Utah, I am still stoked to have some nice weather. Living in our new home makes it even more fun to decorate when new seasons come along, and one of my favorite ways to dress up the house is with a new wreath! I’m Ali from Dream Crafter and today I am going to show you how I made this Spring Wreath for my front door. 

  spring wreath4

I started out with a foam wreath form that I got at Walmart for just a few dollars. I happened to already have the eggs (I got them off an old wreath my mom was going to throw in the garbage because it was broken) which was nice because the eggs already had a spike on the bottom. Easy crafting! You will also need some layering moss and glue. (I used wood glue but I’m sure just about anything would work fine…just DO NOT use hot glue on a foam wreath. Been there done that and it’s not pretty). 

spring wreath3

As you can see I just started by sort of patching on the moss at random. I decided to wrap it around the back and used the whole package of moss to cover as much of the wreath form as I could. I got this moss at Walmart (since I don’t have a real craft store nearby in the hick-town I live in), but I’m sure you could find higher quality moss at Michaels or JoAnn. Once the moss is dry (I let it dry overnight), start adding your eggs. Though I repurposed my eggs, you can find them at your local craft store as well. 
 
 
I just used as many eggs as I thought I needed to cover the holes in the moss. I’m thinking about adding a ribbon or something…what do you think? I like to keep this wreath on the INSIDE of the door because of the crazy winds here. I don’t want my precious moss flying all over my front steps! You can hang yours on the outside of your door, above a mantel, on a window, inside a frame… the options are endless with wreaths!
 
 
This wreath was so simple to make it took me less than an hour (not counting the over night dry time) and I love how it turned out! I’m going to keep this up way past Easter since it’s so cute and just right for spring! Stop by Dream Crafter to see what other crafts I am dreaming up over there! 
 
Happy Easter!
 

Woodland Plaid Winter Wreath

There’s just something so peaceful and so magical about the forest, don’t you think? No matter what time of year it is, but especially in winter. The sweet forest animals that leave their tracks in the snow, the glistening slow flakes on pine needles, white pinecones… there’s just something so neat about it. I’ve always loved the forest. Maybe it’s because I am a desert native and our winters look very different. This year I decided my holiday wreath would reflect a cozy, forest winter. Check out my Woodland Plaid Winter Wreath… 

woodland plaid winter wreath7

Thanks so much to Floracraft for providing me with a wreath form for this project…I love how big it is! 

Woodland Plaid Winter Wreath1

Here’s a list of supplies you will need if you want to create one for your front door or mantle:

  • wreath form
  • plaid fabric
  • bottle brush tree
  • plastic deer
  • gold dots
  • gold glitter
  • Mod Podge
  • sponge brush
  • scissors
  • hot glue gun + sticks
  • burlap & gold ribbon

Woodland Plaid Winter Wreath4

The first thing you want to do is rip your fabric in 2 inch wide strips and wrap your wreath form, securing with hot glue at the back of the wreath. Once you cover the wreath, hot glue the gold dots sporadically on the tree. 

Woodland Plaid Winter Wreath2

Then using Mod Podge and your sponge brush, paint the deer’s antlers and sprinkle with gold glitter. Hot glue the tree and deer to the wreath.

Woodland Plaid Winter Wreath3

Use the burlap and gold flecked ribbon to make a bow and hot glue it to the top of your wreath.

Woodland Plaid Winter Wreath5

If you have any extra gold dots, you can hot glue those on the wreath as well. I just LOVE the way it turned out! What do you think?

Witchy Halloween Wreath

This post is part of a paid campaign with Plaid Crafts/Mod Podge and Blueprint Social. All opinions and work are my own and I only share things that I think you will love. 

Hello friends! This month is seriously flying by. I just barely finished this year’s Halloween wreath and then I had to be sure that I made time to photograph and post it. It’s a cute one…maybe even one of my very favorites…so I just had to share it with you. Check out my Witchy Halloween Wreath!

witchy halloween wreath1

I have a ‘thing’ for witches…as in decorating with them. And Hocus Pocus happens to be my all time favorite Halloween movie. So it only makes sense for me to make a witch themed wreath. Didn’t she turn out nice? I like to think it’s equal parts creepy and equal parts cute. 

Here’s my list of supplies so that you can make one too…

  • styrofoam wreath (dollar store)
  • glitter skull (dollar store)
  •  styrofoam cone (dollar store)
  • black roses/spider bouquet (dollar store)
  • creepy cloth (dollar store)
  • Mod Podge Collage Clay
  • Mod Molds
  • Mod Podge Glow-in-the-Dark
  • Folk Art Multi-Surface Paint
  • glitter paint
  • paint brushes
  • hot glue and glue gun
  • Mod Podge Silicone Craft Mat
  • scissors
  • embellishments (ribbon, buttons, etc.)
  • circle piece of cardboard

witchy halloween wreath3

Not all supplies pictured.

I started out by wrapping the styrofoam wreath in the creepy cloth and securing it in place with hot glue. Then I used the Mod Podge Collage clay in the Mod Molds on the Mod Podge silicone craft mat.

I decided I wanted to make the skull and cross bones and the word EEK to add to my wreath. After squeezing the collage clay into the molds, I allowed them LOTS of time to dry and cure (took about 48 hours). 

Once the clay was dry, I easily popped the pieces out of the molds and painted them with orange. 

Once the pieces dried, I went to town with the Mod Podge Glow-in-the-Dark! I painted the collage clay pieces I made, the spider, and the glitter skull. It goes on visibly but dries clear. And it totally makes things glow-in-the-dark!

Now it’s time to make the cute witch’s hat. I painted the cone and the circle piece of card board black. Once it dried, I painted over the black with glitter paint.

Once both pieces are dry, hot glue the bottom of the cone to the middle of the cardboard circle. Add embellishments to the hat using hot glue to adhere. 

The wreath is ready to arrange and hot glue all the pieces on where you want them…

I took a big piece of thick, glittery black ribbon to hang the Witchy Halloween Wreath from my front door. 

I wanted to show you want the wreath looks like at night on my door… but I am warning you that night time glow-in-the-dark photos are super difficult to take. And I may have taken 100,000 to only have 2 semi-decent shots. But, alas…here is the two skulls glowing at night…

You get the idea, right? A Halloween wreath that glows…now that’s cool!

Happy Summer Wreath

It’s summertime!! We are loving the sunshine, swimming, splash pad playing, and sprinkler dancing! Summertime is just plain fun. I hope you are enjoying your summer so far too!

I needed something fun and summery for my front door that would match my Bandana Pillows. Here’s the Happy Summer Wreath I put together one night after a busy summer’s day.

Happy Summer Wreath1

 

It’s so happy! I smile every time I see it. The colors, the vintage sheet and felt flowers, the pin wheel, the chalkboard frame, the polka dots, and the pom poms…they all make me happy! 

Happy Summer Wreath2

All the materials used to make this wreath I had on hand, which is always awesome. I wrapped a wreath form in yarn and then I used felt and vintage floral sheets to make flowers. I used a piece of felt and a polka dot button to make a pin wheel. The frame, felt bird, and pom pom garland came from Michael’s several month back. Everything is attached with hot glue, so it was very easy to put together.

Happy Summer Wreath3

See how cute it looks with the Bandana Pillows? Don’t mind the mismatched door knob and lock…it’s on the to-do list.

Minnie Mouse Wreath

Hi friends!!

I’m on my way to SNAP! Conference with some of my bloggy girlfriends. You can follow our road trip shenanigans via Instagram (kara_mineforthemaking). I thought I’d stop by to share one of my favorite pieces of decor from my daughter’s Minnie Mouse Party

The Minnie Mouse Wreath 

Isn’t it so cute?

Here’s what you need to make your own:

-wreath form

-black fabric

-red felt

-stiff black felt

-white paint

-hot glue gun and sticks

-scissors

-marker

How-To:

1. Cut the black fabric in 2 inch strips. You can do this easily by cutting a bit at the top then ripping the fabric by hand.

2. Wrap the black fabric strips around the wreath form, securing with hot glue as needed. Be sure to cover the wreath form entirely.

3. Cut 2 circles (about 5-6 in in diameter, give or take) out of the stiff black felt. hot glue to the top of the wreath, to look like Minnie’s ears.

5. Using your marker, draw your child’s name in block letters on the red felt and cut out.

6. Draw a bow on the red felt and cut out.

7. Hot glue the name and bow to the wreath.

8. Add white polka dots to the red felt. You can dip the end of a paint brush in the paint, use a Q-tip or even a tooth pick depending on the size you want the polka dots. Allow dry time.

9. Hang the wreath as part of a display for a party or celebration.

Thanks for stopping by today friends!

I will be back soon with more fun details from the Minnie Mouse Party!

Happy Hump Day!

Scrappy Spring Wreath {tutorial}

Hi there friends and Happy Weekend!
I’m stopping by to share my Scrappy Spring Wreath with you today. It’s probably my favorite spring wreath I’ve made. 
The fun part about this wreath is that scraps of fabric, felt, and yarn were used to make it. Hence the name Scrappy : ) 
You will need…
2 in. strips of fabric
2 in. strips of felt
yarn
butterflies
felt bird/owl/bunny etc.
grape vine wreath (Dollar Tree)
ribbon
lace applique (from wholeport.com)
hot glue gun and sticks
scissors
fork (to make yarn pom-poms)
Tips:
*Go through your craft stash! Check your fabric, felt, and ribbon scraps as well as your scrapbooking supplies. That cute butterfly on my wreath is actually from the scrapbook section of the craft store.
*Purchase your grape vine wreath from Dollar Tree.
How-To:
First, you are going to make rolled rose fabric flowers, pom-pom felt flowers, and yarn pop-poms. 
Check these great blogs for tutorials on each:
Randomly hot glue your flowers and pom-poms to your wreath.
Wrap yarn around the wreath. This can be “messy” with no rhyme or reason.
Glue on any other additions (felt bird, butterflies, etc.)
Display for spring! 
We made this wreath for my spring Craft Class and though each wreath turned out a little different, they were all beautiful! I love the pastels and the “scrappy” look it has. 
Perfect wreath for spring and for Easter! 
Any big plans for Easter weekend?
We will be attending church, coloring and hunting for eggs, playing with new Easter basket toys, and enjoying a big ham dinner, and watching the short video below.
Thanks for stopping by today friends!
Have a beautiful Easter with your family. We are so blessed!
Thanks to WholePort.com for the pretty lace appliques that I added to my wreath. I was not compensated for this post, but did use this product, supplied by WholePort.
