Brown Grocer Bag Crafted Into A Wreath

Hi there, happy your here. Wondering how many of you shop at a grocery that offers brown grocer bags? I do some shopping at Aldis,  they offer paper or plastic. If you have followed along in the past posts you know that I have made such cool stuff from brown paper bags.

I have been crushing on the magnolia leave wreaths. So I got busy cutting and gluing.  I would say that  this craft is very easy to do.

 First, cut the leaves, they dont all have to be exactly  the same. I think I cut up about 4bags.

 I had an old hay foam wreath that I used as a base. If I didnt use that I was planning on cutting a huge circle and then cut out the middle.
 I used hot glue to attach them. Just be sure they are all facing the same way.
Add enough so it's nice and full. When its complete you can spray paint them green or whatever color you like. I chose to just add a bit of white shading and some lambs ear and berries.

So next time you have a choice of paper or plastic pick paper and have some crafting fun!

                   Thanks so much for stopping in,
                         Happy crafting!

Autumn Kitchen starring red, welcome, Come on in!

Welcome, Its that season when colors are vibrant and warm. Hot drinks soothe the sole. Fireside conversations lead to melted chocolate and marshmallows hugged by Graham crackers! So today I share many kitchen changes I have said goodbye to Teal and hello to red. I have changed my drop leaf table out for a vintage "greenbean table", meaning this ole table sat field side with grama cleaning the freshly picked green beans.  So in a sense is a farm table. The new red top sets he stage for the kitchen. I ave included lots of repurposed items, painted items ,  thrift store finds all in the name of fun.

 This large rooster carving was a goodwill find.


 This cabinet holds all the baking supplies

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I do hope you are enjoying the Autumn weather

The shabby chic Farmhouse pumpkin, Easy to Craft

Hi there, nice that you could stop in. Seeing that Autumn is swiftly approaching I thought it would be fitting to craft a pumpkin. I have seen many varieties of fabric pumpkins but this one is a tad different. For this craft you will need:

1 med. Styrofoam ball
A hot glue gun and glue sticks
About 3/4 of a yard of fabric of your choice
A tad of burlap for the stem
A bit of rope or cording
Fabric for the bow

 This is actually easy, while your glue gun is heating you can take your fabric and rip it into strips about 2 inches wide. Then you will cut the strips to 8 or so inch pieces.
 Once you have a pile and your glue gun is ready start by taking a strip of fabric tie it in the middle put a dot of glue on the tie and begin to adhere to the styrofoam as shown.
Each piece is glued on to the ball until the the entire ball is covered.
 Te glue will go onto middle tied part of the 8 inch strip.

This is a fun craft to do with a few friends . It's fun to see the final results. If you want a slightly larger pumpkin you can  cut the strips a bit larger.

                           Happy Crafting!
