After the winter, when I was more interested in knitting hats for myself and for children, I wanted to take a crochet hook in my hand. The coincidence was that at the time I was looking for crochet inspiration, Pinterest was full of ideas for Easter decoration. When I came across a crocheted bunny tutorial, I decided to decorate this year’s Easter wreath with them. In today’s post, you can find a tutorial how to make an Easter wreath with crocheted bunnies.
I don´t know about you, but for me, the smell of oranges is one of the loveliest smells I have ever known. When you add the scent of needles, vanilla, cinnamon … this is the real Christmas mix for me 🙂 In this post, I will show you a simple step-by-step tutorial how to make an unconventional Christmas wreath decorated with dried oranges slices.
It’s almost unbelievable, but the fall is just around the corner. And so it is high time to get into making some decorations (that I have neglected in the summer). If you read my blog regularly, you know that I have enjoyed jute creation. And since I like to use ideas that have proven themselves, I decided to make the fall wreath of burlap bubbles (you could already see my Easter and Christmas wreaths).
If you are a regular reader of this blog, you probably know that I enjoy making seasonal decorations. It´s a creative outlet for me. But the box, where I store all the decorations, is pretty full by now. I´m also well aware that the minimalism trend is currently very popular. It says one should not be afraid to get rid of unnecessary things. But somehow I´m quite reluctant to get rid of the things I created when I know I’ve spent some time making them. That’s why I was thinking of going another way. And I´ve decided to use my decoration differently, respectively to make something new from it. So in my today´s post, I will show you an easy tutorial how to “upgrade” the Easter wreath from the jute ribbon and turn it into a hanging decoration.
For those who like everything wrapped in neatly tied package I have prepared this post, which is a summary of my last year´s Easter jute crafts. I enjoyed working with this material very much, and surely you´ll have the chance to find more jute tutorials on this blog 😉
When it´s getting dark early, the winter afternoons spent at home can be quite long both for you and your children. Today, I bring you some ideas on how to entertain your children while waiting for Christmas. Continue Reading
On the way from the local grocery store, the day after an almost apocalyptic wind storm (I do not want to play down the recent hurricanes in the Caribbean, but I haven´t yet experienced a big crane turning around by itself!), the ground was full of broken branches and twigs from the trees. I thought it would be a waste not to pick them and use them for our next crafts. In the shopping bag, I carried a purchased star which I intended to use for decorating the lighted pinecone Christmas tree. And so an idea of making twig stars with children crossed my mind. The tutorial is very simple and the final stage of the decoration can handle even the smallest!
Although it may seem unbelievable, even after this and last year’s creating many things from the pinecones (Christmas wreath, pinecone figuresand angels), I still have a bunch of this natural material. And since we won´t have our Christmas tree at home this year (we will be celebrating Christmas with our parents back in our home country), I decided to make a smaller version of it from pinecones. So in this post, you will find a how to easily make a lighted pinecone Christmas tree. Continue Reading
The success of the fall pinecone figures has inspired me to work with this natural material again and try to create Christmas ornaments: Pinecone angles. The tutorial is very simple, and you have a lot of room for fantasy how to decorate your angels.
As you may have noticed on the blog, this year’s DIY crafts were in the spirit of jute (here, here and here). It is no wonder, therefore, that I decided to make a jute ribbon (or burlap) Christmas wreath. It´s really easy to make and I think the result is pretty awesome. Continue Reading
