So shabby, so chic, Always. 

Hello!

I was doing a little late night crafting and couldn’t wait to share this little creation. I can’t decide if I want to keep it or post it on my etsy shop! 

This adventure started with having new washi tape that I really wanted to use. I thought this was a nice twist to traditional Harry Potter memorabilia. It tends to be much darker in comparison to this shabby chic rendition. Happy crafting, y’all! 

Happy 4th! 

Hello & Happy 4th, y’all! I had so much fun creating todays crafts, I couldn’t want to share! 

I tried a different painting technique with this jar. It was a little tougher than I had expected, but the final product is perfect! Instead of painting the outside of the jar, I painted the inside.
This was the easiest jar! I simply painted the jar blue and added a glittery finish. I happened to find the finish on the sale rack at Michaels! I can’t wait to use it on other projects!
This little beauty took a little longer, but was worth it! I saw something similar in Michaels, and decided I could make it myself. This jar is definitely my favorite out of the three!

I hope you enjoyed! Happy crafting!!! 

Decoupage Owl

Hello!

I haven’t decoupaged something in a long time… So when I was working on this little protect I was worried it wouldn’t turn out as cute as it did!  I found the owl cut out at Walmart.  I traced the owl onto scrap book paper.  I covered the wooden owl in Mod Podge glue and then covered the paper owl in Mod Podge.  After placing the paper on top of the wood, I used a brush to smooth out the paper.  Once the paper started to dry, I applied a coat of Mod Podge to seal the paper.  I added a little bow for a finishing touch!

Wedding Crafts! 

Hello!

A few months ago one of my friends got married and she asked for my crafty skills to help out with some of the wedding decor.  I learned some fun tips and tricks and I’m going to share them below!

We wrapped plain tea lights in washi tape to make them pretty!
The wedding was “Peter Pan” themed, which was prefect for the bride and groom. Thimbles were used as accents.
Ribbon wands! We didn’t craft these, but the picture was too pretty not to share!
Thimbles and acorns were used at each place setting. We lightly spray painted the acorns with a shimmery gold paint.
The card box! We actually did construct this ourselves with wrapping paper, ribbon, feathers, and wedding themed stickers.
One of my favorite crafts was embellishing the feathers. We lightly spray painted the feathers with glitter spray paint. They were so pretty!

These were just a few things to share, the whole wedding was incredibly creative!  Hopefully I’ll share the table layouts soon!  I hope you enjoyed, happy crafting!

My First Wreathe! 

I finally took the plunge and created my own wreathe!  I’ve pinned so many pretty wreathes on Pinterest and this was the perfect time to try it out!  I’m  not sure how to write a “how to” on wreathe making. I purchased the twig wreathe frame, added a few picks, and used a monogram ornament for the center.  This was a lot easier than I anticipated! Hope y’all enjoyed!

Paper Flowers

Hi Y’all!  Last year I was stuck at work due to snow.  We were limited on craft supplies and I searched for what I could make with what was available to me!  All I had was construction paper, scissors, and glue! I found a post on Pinterest on how to make paper flowers.  I’ve attached the link below! I’m not even going to try to explain the steps!
