Baby Book Wreath

This was actually a very difficult project for me to make.  Why?  Because in order to make it, I had to cut up books.  I’ve had a deep love and respect for books since the first time I walked into a library when I was very young.  Books have not only taught me so much, but they have taken me to worlds I may never have even imagined.

This was a project that was requested by a friend of mine, who wanted this to be used at a baby shower as well as a decoration for the baby’s room.  I did a lot of research for this project and this is my version of it.  I hope you enjoy it.

Brown Christmas Wreath

Another Christmas has come and gone.  Most of the gifts have been exchanged.  (Although there are a few gifts that still need exchanged.  Being sick over the holidays is no fun.)

This wreath was made for a friend who loves the color brown.  I couldn’t post this earlier, because the recipient of this wreath reads my page, and she’d have known what she was getting before she got it.

Copper Fall Wreath

It looks like Fall is here.  I love the cooler weather & the glorious colors of the leaves changing from green to golds, oranges & reds.  With all of the changes occurring outside, I thought it was a good time to start changing some things around the house.  For me, the first change is usually the wreath on the door.  And this year, I wanted to bring in some copper colors to brighten the Fall colors up even more.  Welcome Fall.

Patriotic Wreath – tutorial

I’m still having a ball working on decorations for the 4th of July!  The table is almost ready to be set, the decorative pieces are done for a vignette or two.  But the door was  naked!

It needed a wreath.

Easter Bonnet Door Hanging

I’m still decorating for Easter.  I certainly couldn’t have a St. Patrick’s Day Wreath on the door for Easter.  Because the theme for this year is purple & eggs, I wanted to put both of those into the door hanging.  Instead of the traditional wreath, I chose an Easter Bonnet this year.  This was one of the easiest door hangings that I’ve done in a very long time.  I hope you enjoy it & will try one for yourself.

St. Patrick’s Day Wreath

I’m still decorating for St. Patrick’s Day, so I thought I’d share the most recent addition to our home.  To welcome people, we needed a new wreath for the door.  Since the theme for this year is the pot of gold coins that the Wee People hide under the rainbow, I thought I’d continue the same theme for the door wreath.

I wanted to incorporate the lucky shamrocks, gold coins with some roses. (my Dad used to call me his “Wild Irish Rose”). Continue reading
