Lily Wreath

Lily Wreath
This is my granddaughter's birthday present.
She wanted a wreath for her bedroom.
These are the colors she chose.
The yarn is Lion Brand Wool-Ease Thick and Quick Yarn. The color of the yarn is 106 Sky Blue. I wrapped the yarn around a 14" Floracraft Styrofoam Extruded Wreath with  UPC white.
I cut the Lily flowers out with Crafter's Companion - Sheena Perfect Partners metal die - Victorian Floral Lily.  I used wool felt for the flowers.
I embellished the center of the Lilies with Jolee's Boutique - Pearl and Gem Clusters.

Painted Mason Jars For Fall

Painted Mason Jars For Fall

Please read the Instructions below:
You place the vinyl on the outside of the jar.
You paint your jar. Letting the paint dry for each layer. Then when the jar is dry add varnish. Letting the varnish dry between each layer.
Remove vinyl after the jar has dried completely.
I used an X-acto knife to cut around the vinyl shape then peeling it off the jar.
I used Waverly Chalk Paint. Then I sealed it with Waverly clear matte varnish.
The paints and varnish can be purchased at Walmart.
2 different techniques were used with each jar. The jar with the maple leaf was painted with a solid color paint. The jar with the acorn I applied several layers of paint to distress it. Giving it a more woodsy feel to it. I used the dry brush technique to apply 3 different colors of paint onto the jar with the acorn.
The candles are battery operated. I'm in the process of making tags and die cuts to hang on the jars.

Happy Crafting!!

Teapot Plaques and Decorative Holders

Well I had to go back to the drawing board. My daughter liked the teapot plaque so much she asked me if I could do another one. Only flip the Teapot the opposite direction. I said I could do this.
Then she asked if she could have my decorative holder. I said I could make another one.
I'm just happy she liked them so much. I do have to admit 2 teapots are better then one.
I had my GD help me with the 2nd one. She really enjoyed painting the teapot plaque.
Here is my daughter's house warming present. 2 teapot plaques and a decorative holder.
I think these 3 pieces look good on stands too.  So now it is settled this is my daughter's house warming present!!!  She is very grateful and appreciative that I made these for her.

These decorative holders I made for myself. LOL
I'm keeping them for decorative Craft room storage!!
I'm might bling up the 2 side holders more. I just have decided yet.
I know sometimes when I post things on my blog.
I see things in a different light and make some changes.
So don't be surprised if you see me posting more about these pieces. LOL
