Hello Sunflowers!

Hello Sunflowers!

 

I love this door sign that just screams Hello Sunflowers!  One of my favorite things to do with my family in summer is to visit a sunflower field near us.  Being surrounded by beautiful yellow flowers, taller than we are, lends a bit of majesty to summer.  This door sign is a great way to bring a little of that summer goodness home.

 

Hello Sunflowers Supplies

  • Wood round (I used an 18 inch round-12 inch or above would work well)
  • Polyurethane stain (this is Minwax English Chestnut 233)
  • Hot glue and hot glue gun
  • Sunflower and daisy artificial flower stems (I bought these at Hobby Lobby)
  • Burlap ribbon and wired ribbon
  • Tin word of choice (I found this “hello” at Hobby Lobby)
  • Foam brush
  • Shop towel or paper towels

 

 


 

Directions

  • Apply stain to the wood round and let it dry (use sponge brush to apply and wipe off the excess with a shop towel or paper towels)
  • A second round can be glued to the back of the first for stability (optional)
  • Glue flowers in desired position to the wood round
  • Create a bow with the burlap and wired ribbons and glue to the wood round
  • Add a piece of ribbon to the back to use as a hanger-glue the ribbon to the back of the round

 

Creating a simple bow:

  • Measure out two strips of burlap ribbon for a base for the bow
  • Cut strips of ribbon as long as the burlap ribbon strips and layer on top of the burlap ribbon
  • Gather the ribbons in the center
  • Tie a piece of ribbon around the center of the bow

Beaded Floral Wreath

Beaded Floral Wreath

Beaded wreaths are so sweet and versatile.  I love that I can use this on my door, mantle or wall.  While I love fluffy green wreaths and yarn wreaths, beaded wreaths are a smaller statement with a bit more elegance.  I love this Beaded Floral Wreath.  The pink and cream colors are classic and lend to spring or summer decor.

 

Supplies:

  • Ring wreath form
  • Wooden beads
  • Twine
  • Pink flowers
  • Burlap wired ribbon
  • Pink ribbon or ribbon of choice
  • Floral wire
  • Berry ribbon garland (I found this at Hobby Lobby)
  • Hot glue gun with glue sticks
  • Metal word (Blessed-found at Hobby Lobby)
  • 20 gauge wire (optional)
  • Fishing line (optional-I used Trilene)

 


 

Directions

  • Find place where the floral ring form was sealed together.  Gently bend the ring back and forth until the ring breaks open.
  • Add wooden beads to the floral ring until it is full.
  • Close the ring wreath form with wire and hot glue
  • If desired, add a piece of twine to the top of the ring wreath form to use as a hanger for the wreath.
  • Use berry ribbon garland and wind it around the beads as tightly or loosely as desired until the wreath is completely entwined.
  • Glue or use floral wire to attach the flowers to the wreath form.
  • Create a bow using the burlap and pink ribbons. For this bow, I cut equal lengths of burlap and pink ribbons.  I glued the pink ribbon on top of the burlap ribbon.  Then, I tied the pieces together with twine to make a bow.  Attach the bow to the ring wreath form with twine, hot glue or wire.
  • Using fishing line, cut pieces to tie up the ends of the metal word chosen and tie the pieces to the ring wreath form.

Farmhouse Wall Decor

I love aspects of all styles of home decor.  However, the Farmhouse decor style says home to me.  This Farmhouse Wall Decor piece is a great way to incorporate greens into a room.  Actually, for Christmas, I added evergreen branches and pinecones.  For Easter, I added Easter eggs on sticks into the greens pictured.  I cannot wait to add mini-pumpkins to this for Fall.

Two of these wall decor pieces on either side of our TV in our living room brought a much needed bunch of greens to the room.  While I love plants, they do not love me typically.  Seriously, I killed aloe. So, plastic plants are the ones I gravitate to more often than not.  These are the perfect green additions to my home.  I hope you enjoy them, too.

  • Greens of choice (I found these at Hobby Lobby-be sure to pick hanging greens for the sides and front, as well as taller, spreading greens)

Easy to Make Pink Welcome Wreath

 

 

 

 

Easy to Make Pink Welcome Wreath

 

I love this easy to make pink Welcome Wreath!!  Pink is a total departure from my normal color palette.  When I was ready to paint the quilter’s loop, my daughter said, “it has to be pink!!!”  Really?  Pink?  Pink has never been “my” color.  Blue, bronze, gray, white…yep, that’s where I was leaning.  Yet, when I looked at the floral options I had on hand, pink seemed perfect.  She sold me, pink is so pretty and screams Spring or Summer!!  I think I may need to make one with my daughter’s name instead of “welcome.”  Hmmm…grabbing the keys and I’m off to the craft store.

Supplies

  • Quilter’s loop (wooden-I bought this one at Hobby Lobby)
  • Outdoor paint (I chose Azalea outdoor acrylic Patio Paint)
  • Foam brush
  • Floral stems in desired color
  • Twine
  • Hot glue gun and glue sticks
  • Wood cut out “welcome” (I found this at Hobby Lobby)

Directions

 

  • Paint the quilter’s loop and wood “welcome” cut out using the foam brush and outdoor paint-let them dry completely
  • Add twine to the “welcome” wood cut out and hang it from the clasp of the quilter’s loop, making sure the knot is secure
  • Hot glue floral stems to the top of the quilter’s loop, hiding the clasp.  I placed two stems facing each other to include some of the greens.  Then, I took the tops off of the stems and glued them in the middle to fill in. You may need to cut or break off some of the stems to ensure they fit.
  • Tie a small piece of twine around the clasp to create a loop for hanging (Optional)
