While playing on Pinterest the other night I came across a lighted star that I just loved .So Hubby went out to the garage came up with a small piece of barn wood we had out there and we did this up.It is not like the one I seen but love it and the fact hubby helped me do it makes it even more special .He is not the crafty type but I think I have gotten him interested a bit after doing this one I hope so .This week-end we are going to work on another one I have pictured in this head of mine I will post it if it turns out.
If you want to make your own just take a piece of old wood trace a star on the back side drill holes and put lights in the holes easy peasy. The bottom is just burlap I wrapped around and used flat tacks to hold in place so I can change it as I want to .
Some magnets I made for the frig.They are easy to make just cut a piece of burlap or fabric and place paper ,tissue you could even use a page from an old book,wrapping paper whatever you like on top of the burlap. I stained a coffee filter and cut it a bit smaller then the burlap. Then place a pressed leaf, flower or feather on top of the filter .Take a piece of clear thin vinyl and sew around the edges.When sewing the vinyl you may have to place some tape under the foot on your sewing machine I used paper tape worked great for me and peels right off when finished that washi tape is good for lots of things (: Then just glue a magnet on the back. I did one up with a pressed rose but gave it away before I got a picture taken so I will have to make another one and post it later. This would even be a cute way to display family pictures ,poems lots of ideas. And would make a cute simple gift.
and some little paper flower magnets made from rolled roses. Just a couple things I did this week. I will be back with a couple more things to show you soon that are almost finished .
I was playing with sticks today (: this is the first of several little ideas I have up in this silly head of mine right now. I have been driving hubby crazy at night sketching things out in my notepad with my flashlight. Needless to say my brain decides to get busy when I go to bed and want to sleep lol. My in-laws moved a couple months ago from the home they had lived in for 40 years. And being the sentimental person I am I cut some branches from a few trees on the property that will be taken out to build new homes on the ground .It will all be bulldozed and nothing left to remember but memories . The branches were from trees my hubby and his sister planted when they were kids and some lilac bushes that were there grandmothers . I cut them and brought them home with ornaments in mind for hubby his sister and parents .This is the first of them which is for my mother-in-law.I thought I would share pics with you. I will have more of my silly little creations to post soon working on some wings that are almost finished. Have a good week-end.
