Well it has been a few days since I have posted. I have family visiting right now and we have been spending time with them. The weather has been beautiful and we have really enjoyed it. My husband got the bikes out yesterday and filled tires, and tightened all the things that should be tightened. We then enjoyed a nice family bike ride.
This is my spring wreath. It was simple to make. I found some green, furry yarn and wrapped it around my dollar store wreath form. I didn’t use any glue to hold the yarn on the wreath. I just wrapped it tightly and then tied it off when I finished. Fluff up the yarn. Then add your embellishments. I found these cute daisy buttons at Walmart. Take some pretty ribbon, make a bow and add some extra ribbon to make a wreath hanger.
I hope you are enjoying some nice weather and that you make yourself a pretty spring wreath. If you do I would love to see it.
Subway art has been around for a while now. I have wanted to make one but have never gotten around to it. Well, I found a Valentine’s Day one on pinterest and what could be easier than pushing the print button to have my very own subway art? This subway art comes from The Girl Creative. She has a wonderful blog and other great free printables.
I did not have the perfect size frame to do this project. The one I had was a little to small. The color of the frame was a horrible fake gold. So I had to do some tweaking to make this project work.
I first cleaned the frame and then I used a red acrylic paint. It needed two coats. After the paint was dry I used brown shoe polish on the frame, to give it a slightly aged effect and tone down the red. I simply applied the polish and then wiped it with a paper towel until I had the color I desired. Next I had to trim the art. Put the art in the frame and display it where I wanted. Easy.
