Next time I will practice and with the tripod and camera I am sure it will be easier =] Your color choice of felt (I used 3 9″x12″sheets in different colors, and used a little bit more than half for each flower)Thread, needle and scissors.Hot glue gun.Download the pattern in case you need it (You will find 4 different sizes for you to play with! **The download on the left is a PDF format file, so you will need to have Abobe Reader installed on your PC or MAC.

Star Jars These transformed mason jars are a fun way to both decorate an outdoor table for a 4th of July celebration or a safe way to entertain the kids during fireworks. Red spray paint Mason Jars Star stickers Newspaper Scatter star stickers onto the mason jar, make sure they’re stuck on very tight Screw on the mason jar lid and cap and place on top of a table covered in newspaper in a well ventilated area Spray with the paint from a nice distance around the entire jar until it’s coated well but without drips. Wait at least a couple hours for the jar to dry and carefully peel off the star stickers Place 2-3 battery operated votive candles in each jar and enjoy your festive 4th of July evening!

Classic Felt Flowers – Tutorial May18th2010 First of all, I have to give credit where credit is due. This amazing lady inspired me to try my hand at a different type of flower than usual, and I sort of switched it up a little to make it my own. Enjoy! Now, I know I say this pretty much every time, but I LOVE THESE FLOWERS. I would jump into a big pile of them, roll around, toss them joyfully into the air and have them flutter down all around me, I adore them so much. Supplies: FeltGlue (I used a hot glue gun because I apparently like the excruciating 5 second pain it causes my fingertips, but try whatever you have on hand)Center: A cute button, vintage earring, cluster of beads… other ideas? xo! Check out my other tutorials here!

Create – wall art printable template Some months a go I shared the Love wall art template, along with that one I made this one, but unlike the previous one I wanted to make this word different and special, so no cardboard. Instead I used a piece of Styrofoam from a box we received last week. When I saw it a knew it was perfect for this project =] And instead of painting or covering it with fabric (my first idea) I decided to just go the Decoupage route with hot pink tissue paper. It ends up being so light! I just double tape mine to the wall and it works like a charm! **The download is a PDF format file, so you will need to have Abobe Reader installed on your PC or MAC. THE MATERIALS - 23×8 inches piece of Styrofoam (I just used one from a box but you can buy a piece at Michaels) - Tacky glue - 2 sheets of tissue Paper ripped unevenly with your hands - Sand paper - X-acto knife - Download the template below - Marker to trace template - Sponge brush [ Click on Images to enlarge] I hope you all enjoy and CREATE =] ps.

scrapbook wheel i have so many cards and pictures and memoriesjust stuffed in boxes....i love this idea to turn them into a "rolodex scrapbook"....using vintage cardsand photos....and bits of this and thatso that all that goodness that's just hiding awaycould be at your fingertips step-by-steps here all photos via fossil life style Rose Barrettes With Valentine's Day coming up I designed these little girl's barrettes in celebration of the rose. I liked the idea that they could add a little Valentine's spirit to any outfit, and also to be used long after the big day. --Molly Materials Cutting Cut out all of the pieces from the Rose Barrette Pattern. one rosebud strip in color Aone 1st tier petal piece in color Aone 2nd tier petal piece in color Aone barrette top in color Bone barrette bottom (with a small slit cut as marked) in color B Making the Rosebud Roll the rosebud strip tightly, lining up the straight edge, starting from the smaller end to form a little rosebud shape as shown above. Thread a length of embroidery thread that matches the color of the rose. Turn the rosebud 90-degrees and take another stitch through all the layers perpendicular to the first set of stitches. Pull this stitch tight and take another stitch in the same place. You will have a pretty little rosebud. Adding the Petals The rose is now finished!

Make a wall of paper hearts I like 3D paper things, and multiples of things, and Valentine's Day. The other night I made these paper hearts while watching TV. You could stick them on a wall or door temporarily, or glue them to a board permanently to make a 3D wall poster. These are made from traditional heart shapes with a slit cut partway down the center. Download the page of hearts here. To make a flat heart into something three dimensional, roll the inner edges of the two arcs toward the back with your fingers to get the shape started. Then add a bit of glue or double-stick tape along one edge. When the edges are glued together, the heart looks 3D. I used bits of double-stick tape to secure mine—a speedy method—but a few of the hearts popped apart within a couple days and had to be re-stuck. Once you get the hang of it, you can bend that paper to your will and make dozens. Then stick a flock of hearts to a wall with loops of tape or poster putty placed at the bottom point on the back side of each shape.

Egg Note Over in Beyond Beyond towers we have one weakness, of the Achilles Heal variety and it is eggs. Scrambled, poached, sunny side up, boiled – whatever way you can imagine them we have had them in all the many fangled ways that you can imagine! What we have never had is an invitation in an egg and this exploded our minds not even blew them. So, if you want to fry people’s minds like eggs then you can learn how to make these eggtastic wonders here on Poppytalk. Droolsome, and after you make your message in an egg we like paprika and parma ham in our scrambled eggs. About the author I'm the big kahuna with the whole shebang. KNOW AND TELL CRAFTS: Film Roll Candle Rings... Lets face it, film is getting more outdated every second and new generations (including some of mine) may not even know what it is. The effects film gives to a picture are popular now and can be seen in the filters on Instagram too. I personally like the negatives more and we have plenty of them at my house stashed in our closet. I thought I might as well help others put these cool pieces of art to use. They are obviously pretty transparent which works great to make a little candle ring! Just wrap... ... and tape! I find that it still lets the light shine through. P.S.
