I'm starting a new series! Yippee! I ranted a teensy tiny itty bit the other day about my 10 part series ( The Feast of the Flower which is still going on btw... and, yes I'll finish it...). But I can't help myself. I have a 3-part series that's taking up valuable space in my tiny brain and I have to purge it to make room for thinking. This series is called "And Then There Were Tree".
Why not brighten up your gloomy winter day, by making your own paper flowers. This super simple project takes only about 5 mins and is sure to brighten any room. Add them to twigs or branches for an instant bouquet or simply throw them in a bowl.
I have a thing for flowers that look like pom poms. Mums, allium, chive blossoms, dahlias – love ‘em! Since fresh flowers aren’t always in the budget, and because I have a brown thumb, I started thinking about what I could do to brighten up our apartment with flowers without actually using flowers.
Aug 15 by Jenny Batt Geometrics aren’t going anywhere soon, why not include them in your party decor? I saw a tissue paper lantern in a vintage party book and it looks so current in monochromatic hues.
Oct 7 I was wanting to make a Halloween disco ball for this year’s festivities, but I’m no fool! That would have taken ages.
Guest post by Lindsey Buck of The Hive If you’ve ever ordered Paper Poms from BHLDN , your first thought may have been something like this (especially if you’ve never dealt with paper poms before): What is this? I thought it was a paper pom and not a fan. Do I take the wire middle off?
Last week I told you I was going to make some little trees for using all year or at least in the spring, just like the little Christmas tree ornaments I made. I love the green fabric with little flowers on it.
This wreath is a project I contributed to an e-course in 2009 and have continued to hang in our home every Christmas since. It's one of my favorite wreaths because of all of that winter white mixed with those shades of pink and green that I just can't get away from no matter how my tastes change. It's an easy one to recreate whether you can crochet or not-simply substitute any crocheted flowers with something similar in felt. To make your own wreath you'll need a foam or straw wreath form, 6-9 strips of 3" wide felt or fabric (depending on the size of your wreath), felt in assorted colors, yarn in assorted colors, crochet needle, embroidery thread and needle, buttons, bells, or other embellishments (doilies, ribbon, pom poms, etc.), and scissors.
Kodu on mu pühamu. Siin peab olema mõnus. Eelkõige iseendal ja veel eriti külmal ajal. Kuna me kolisime sel sügisel uude kohta ja kõiki asju pole Saaremaalt ikka veel ära toonud, siis on see kodu veel poolik. Pole veel ka kuuske tuppa toonud, kuigi sel aastal oli see plaan. Äkki homme?
