Spring Flower Wreath from Paint Chip Samples

 Have you seen The Lettered Cottage’s new E-zine?  It is FABULOUS!!  Inside it’s digital pages was this adorable heart wreath from the Flower Patch Farmgirl.  Using inspiration from that I made this little paint chip paper heart wreath for my Alie!  NOW, I do plan on make another wreath that is very similar to the one from the Flower Patch Farmgirl.  It’s just TOO SWEET not to copy!!

For this project I gathered up some paint chip samples from Walmart.  I made a little heart out of card stock and traced hearts on the backs of the samples.

Then I just started to glued the hearts into a circle to form a flower.  This is my first one.  I just HAD to share with y’all just how MESSY it is!  Look at all the glue!
 My other flowers started to come out a little better.  I adorned them with little wood beads.
 For the wreath I grabbed an empty cereal box and cut a circle from it.  It always helps when your box comes with an image of a circle already on it!!

I don’t have pictures for this next part.  Once I had glued all my little flowers to the circle, well it was lopsided!  It drove me nuts.  I tried everything to fix it and it just wouldn’t work.  I ended up tearing a lot of the flowers.  So, I took it all apart and made a half circle with it.  Then cut a piece of the cereal box to make the other half of the circle.  I wrapped it in ribbon and made a big bow.  Glued the bow to the wreath and….TA DAH!!!
Alie’s new Spring Flower Wreath!

Thirty Hand Made Days

Wordless Wednesday (with words)

I know!  I know!  No words for Wordless Wednesday!  BUT these two beauties are my nieces, Angie and April.  Today is their birthday.  Yes, both of them, one year part.  I miss them so much.  They live back home, in Texas, where we are ALL from!  Please wish them a Happy Birthday today and say a prayer for them.  I’m sure they will be missing their sweet brother, Khaleeq, who is in Heaven.

DIY Spring Sign

Can I tell y’all I’m really excited about how this came out.  I wasn’t really sure where I was going with this when I started.  I just began making rosettes, knowing I wanted to make the letters S-P-R-I-N-G out of them.  Once I was done, I thought they may look nice on a piece of scrap paper.  Then, trying to figure out how I would place them on the wall, I thought I should glue the paper to a piece of cardboard.  But then, thinking how the cardboard would look on the wall, I decided to piece it together as if it was a piece of wood.  Glued everything together and that is how I got this sign.

Let me show you first how I did the letters.  I traced and cut out the letters from an empty cereal box.

Then, I covered the letters with the same color tissue paper as the rosettes I planned to use.

Then I glued on my rosettes I made using this tutorial here. Once my letters where done I glued them to some scrap paper.  I had to use two sheets.  I thought that the seam and repeat of the pattern would drive me crazy but it really doesn’t.  I just flipped the second sheet the other direction.  I really like how it looks pieced together.

I measured and cut up my box.
Hot glued it all together.
Glued my the sign on to the box.  I used hot glue and white school glue of the edges.
Then I chose a corresponding color to this paper, measured, cut and glued it to the edge pieces.
For the hanger I used a little trick I learned from my SIL Teresa with Get Nestled In.  When you don’t have any picture or plate hangers lying around use a paper clip!
Now, I quickly hung it up and snapped a few shots.
 This is how the sides look.

This is my New SPRING sign at home above my faux mantel.

I am SO HAPPY with how it came out.  I mean, you can’t beat FREE!!  An empty box, some scrap paper I already had, a paper clip, some rosettes made from left over tissue paper and a few glue sticks and VIOLA a new Spring Sign!  I LOVE IT!  Alie said “Oh ee-ssoe pretty, Momma.”   What you do you think??
I am linking up to these awesome parties!
