Bobby Pin Butterflies. Around this time of the year I start to crave color like I crave chocolate, potato chips, or coffee!

Bobby Pin Butterflies

It’s supposed to be spring, but outside, it is relentlessly cold, cloudy and gray. So as an offering to the vernal gods, I created these Bobby Pin Butterflies, wearable bursts of color meant to usher in sunnier times! No creature better manifests pure beauty and color than a butterfly. In fact, a group of butterflies is called a “kaleidoscope”!

To bring this particular kaleidoscope to life I used our new Mariposa Felt Bundle. Designed as an adorable hair accessory, these sweeties are also terrific for Easter decorating. And they couldn’t be easier to make.

I remember trying to eat ribbon candy at Christmastime when I was a kid.

Ribbon Candy Ornaments

It was always a little too big for my mouth and didn’t really taste that great. But I ate it anyway, because it was one of those things that was only available this time of the year, which made it special. As the years passed, I got over the need to actually eat the stuff, but I still think it’s pretty. When my kids were small, we found kits to make ribbon candy ornaments from actual ribbon, thread and beads. This is my take on those, using wire instead of thread. To make these you’ll need: Ten inches of 20 gauge craft wire, ten 8-millimeter beads (give or take a few millimeters), and two pieces of 1 1/2” wide and 17 1/2” long grosgrain ribbon. Melt the ends of the ribbon carefully with a lighter so they won’t fray.

Using needle-nose pliers, make a hook using 1” from one end of the wire. If you have trouble pushing the wire through, you can use a large needle to make a pilot hole. Thread on another bead.

Christmas Having completed yards of modern paper holiday garland, I wanted to create some more paper decorations to maintain the look and colors throughout my home.

Make Modern Paper Ornaments

I tried making paper snowflakes from the colored cardstock, but they didn't really work. Then I recalled an old trick I learned in Sunday school as a kid which we called "onion bulbs" and put them all over the Chrismon trees. They used paper strips to create the shape of teardrops and hearts, and we made them from white paper and glued so many globs of gold glitter that it would stick the coats and fancy outfits of the old church ladies that would brush up against them.

So, I experimented a bit with different sizes, and came up with a more polished decoration with a mid-century vibe. Materials 12 x 12" cardstock (in the scrapbooking aisle at the craft store)Paper cutter or scissors and rulerBinder clips1/4" hole punch 1/4" metal eyelet kit (in the sewing notions section, might be called grommets) and hammer or white glue 1. 2.

Shamrock Barrette

“But, I have green eyes!” Didn’t cut it. My red-bearded, last-name-starts-with-Mc dad would leprechaun-ninja attack in the morning with a pinch. We took the holiday seriously. In the interest of saving my poor defenseless daughter (have I ever mentioned she’s a black belt?) To make one for yourself, you’ll need some fabric, a button, hot glue, a tiny piece of green embroidery floss or thread and this pattern. Cut the shape out on the fold, as indicated on the pattern. Press, if needed, then fold with right sides together. Turn right-side out and press. Turn the end near the stem to the inside about 1/4” and press. Hand sew a long running stitch near the bottom edge, all the way around. Pull tightly to gather. Stitch through the button holes with the embroidery floss and knot on the back. Glue the button on the front. Erin Go Bragh!
