Craft Room Wreath

Hi everyone!

Here is a unique wreath made of coffee filters. Yes, coffee filters!!! The filters are first dyed and dried {for whichever specific colors are required}. For the one pictured below, I used white, Pool Party and a light Kraft. Each filter is pinned on individually to a foam wreath form. A banner that says C R E A T E ~ because this is for my craft room ~ ties everything together with coordinating cardstocks, burlap, cork letters, bakers twine and ribbon. A satin ribbon hanger completes this wreath which is approximately 18″ in diameter. This style of wreath is lightweight, easy to hang and looks great on doors, walls, mantels or even as a centerpiece on a large mirror. How pretty it would be to use as a baby or wedding shower decoration, then send it home with the guest of honor! The baby’s name or the bride/grooms names could be done on the banner to personalize it.

*Please note: not suitable for outdoor decor.

Felted Bunnies

Hi everyone!

This is just a quick post to let you know that the felted bunnies from a previous post are now available at Sparkling Dahlia in Carstairs or by contacting me directly. There are 14 bunnies available in a variety of colors. They have been made as plant pokes to add that extra touch to your Easter bouquet or a potted houseplant. However, the dowels can easily be removed to use them as Easter decor ~ in a basket or just sitting on a shelf.

Diaper Cake

Hi everyone!

Diaper cakes make beautiful baby shower gifts or centerpieces for those who want to give something special that will be remembered. Or surprise the new parents with one when you see the little one for the first time. A diaper cake is a festive (and useful) way to turn baby products into something magical and combine the practical with the unexpected!

A baby boy diaper cake is now available at Sparkling Dahlia in Carstairs or by contacting me directly. It is made with 84 size 1 diapers, sits on a 12″ cardboard cake plate and measures approx. 10″ x 17″ to the top of the duck. Curly ribbons are added in between the layers, 3 handmade paper flowers are attached to the front and a 3″ x 3″ card/envelope is also included. Wrapped in protective cellophane tied with ribbons.

*I will have a baby girl diaper cake available shortly. There is also the option to upgrade to the deluxe diaper cake which includes assorted baby products ~ lotion, baby bath, shampoo, socks, bibs, washcloths, teething ring, pacifier, etc.  *{Pictures and prices to come shortly}.

Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions or requests.

Felted Bunny

Hi everyone!

Today I’m sharing my first Easter project ~ a sweet little bunny made using a technique called needle felting. He is covered with 100% wool roving and stands 4 1/2″ tall {from the base to the tips of his ears}. His bow tie can be done in any color and he can also be “primmed” up using a coffee stain and a light dusting of cinnamon. An assortment of these guys will be available in a couple of weeks at Sparkling Dahlia in Carstairs or by contacting me directly. There will be a post letting you know when they are in the store.

*{Thanks to Rebekah Meier for this pattern and directions}.

Have a great day. Spring is almost here!

It’s March and time to start thinking about spring things ~ like birds, flowers, bunnies and Easter. I plan to feature all of these plus more this season.  To start with, I’m sharing a framed stitchery. It is a simple design with birds and flowers stitched on quilted cotton then aged with a coffee, vanilla and cinnamon stain {it may also be left “unaged”}. The stitched area measures 6″ x 8″.

$20.00  *Please contact me if you are interested.
