I told you I would have more Patriotic stuff coming!
Here's another wreath. This one hangs on theinside of my front door.
This one took even less time than the star shaped one.
I took some bandanna patterned ribbon ($.25/yd at the Provo Craft store clearance) and wrapped it around a Dollar Tree wreath. I secured it with a push pin. I then wrapped a strand of jute around the wreath.
The ribbon was wired, so I simply pulled the wire out of one side until it formed a full circle. I pinned the circle to the wreath and then pinned the red tulle to the center of the circle. I hot glued some jute to the center of the tulle, and there you have it! Once again, I used a magnet to secure it to the door.
I sometimes walk to my front door, just to look at it!
Welcome to the second installment of Got a Minute?
Today is all about the upcoming summer holidays.
In honor of Flag Day, Independence Day, and Pioneer Day, I give you this:
I simply bent a metal hanger into the shape of a star, covered it with white ribbon, then hot glued red, white, and blue pom poms to the ribbon. I glued a magnet to the back to attach it my metal door.
Very simple and festive.
Anyone that knows me will attest to my love for all things Americana, so don't be surprised to see many morepatriotic themed crafts to come!
I'm excited for this new segment because I love to come up with crafts that only take a few minutes. With four little girls, it is easier to do little projects that I can squeeze into my few free moments during the day.
For the first project, I made something that has saved me a few minutes (and a few headaches) because I no longer have to try to remember whose turn it is to do the things that my girls are always fighting over.
I call it:
It was so easy and it really only took me a few minutes to put together!
Scrapbook sticker letters
I chose 4 categories that my 4 girls are always fighting over:
I cut out four graduating sized circles in coordinating scrapbook paper. Split the circles into 4. On the green circle I put each of the girls names. On the larger dotted paper I put the four categories. I decorated it with a title, lined up the circles, and pushed the brad through the middle. To hang it, I glued a piece of chipboard to a magnet.
Each morning I turn the name circle so that the girls know what they get a turn at that day. They love it! And I don't have to listen to, "It's my turn!" anymore! Yay!
I am Mommy to four little girls. It's a lot of pink all the time! Can it get any better? I started my blog to encourage myself to use up the things I have lying around the house while spending as little money as possible.
