Good morning everybody! It's time for another crafty tutorial, don't you think? So today, we'd like to share how to make a magic bottle. We've shared a tutorial last year about how to make snow domes already, but for those of you who would like something magical on your desk or windowsill all year, why not make a magic bottle? It even involves a few less steps then the snow globes. Plus you don't need to let any glue dry. make a magic bottle - a tutorial | artsy ants make a magic bottle - a tutorial | artsy ants
I really love the look of luminaries, especially in the garden. I have an herb garden that has plenty of green, but really no color to speak of. I’ve planted a few flowers in there each year to pretty it up, but it never seems to be quite enough. These soft colored luminaries add just the right amount of soft color and light and, since my herb garden is near the front door, double as a lovely way to welcome people to my home. All of these luminaries are made from recycled jars. I keep just about every jar once the contents have been used up. Beaded Frost Luminaries Beaded Frost Luminaries
Look, what have I made from the plain mini felt Easter eggs? I have turned them into little tweet tweet birdies and some other cuties. Hope this will get you into the mood of spring and Easter.

Today is a continuation from yesterday’s post about how to create a silhouette. You can use your vector silhouette for many different things (stationery, a tote bag, necklace, web graphics) but today I’ll show you how I made these large framed painted silhouettes that line our staircase. (nevermind the snowflakes … this photo was taken during Christmas when the kids thought it would be extra festive to tape coffee filter snowflakes all over the wall. It actually turned out to be my favorite Christmas decoration and it was a sad day when we pulled them all down). This tutorial shows you the exact method I used for making the large prints, only done on a smaller scale. The beauty of a vector graphic is that you can blow it up as large as you need without losing clarity – so select a frame and an approximate silhouette size and you can enlarge your silhouette to that size before printing.

Welcome to flower week – five days of simple and delightful flower projects. I could probably do three weeks of flowers because there are so many different ways to create them, but I’ve limited it to five of my current favorites. Before we get started, let me make a few disclaimers: 1. I find inspiration for projects all over the place {online, in shops, in magazines}, then figure out how to re-create them on my own. rolled paper flowers {tutorial

Have you been following me for a while? Do you remember this base wreath (below) that I bought from Target a while ago? I challenged myself to use this wreath through every season for one year. Well, I’m now about 6 months in and I have given this wreath its fourth transformation. I injected some pretty yellow paper flowers into the wreath to greet the budding flowers and trees outside my window. From Christmas – Valentine’s Day our wreath was red, white and green: Inserting Spring into My Wreath
Happy Fall Leaf Bunting! (no-sew) Bunting is so popular right now, and I have wanted to try my hand at it for a while. I have been mulling over exactly how I wanted it to look though, and finally came up with this idea the other day. Since I live in New England, I felt that fall leaves would be fitting - because you see vibrant foliage everywhere, and this is a fun representation to have inside the house! Here is how I did it:This is the leaf shape, and stem shape - to use as a guide.
20 Ways to Decorate With Book Pages {and other things about the book party} Since the moment I knew my sister was going to write a book, I knew I was going to throw her a big party. Book pages seemed to be the obvious choice for decor. I wanted the decorations to be fantastic. And I remembered what Henri says.. So I purposely limited myself to books and paper.
I'll admit it - I'm not ashamed - I have a small obsession with making pillows! Eventually I would like to turn my obsession into profit by opening an Etsy shop, but for now I enjoy making pillows for my home, family and friends. So when my friend celebrated her birthday last month, it came as no surprise that I'd make her a couple of pillows(in the colors of her choice). Rather than cut out a bunch of felt I decided to purchase some polyester satin to embellish her pillows. I purchased the polyester satin from Hobby Lobby. Satin Flower Pillows
