[2016] Valentine Series: Meshing Around

Welcome Back!

Since last Christmas, I’ve been intrigued at the mesh wreaths I would find on Pinterest and stores. I’ve always wondered if they’re costly to make. After browsing around images, I came across one that shows the base form. But, with my budget, I can’t really go buy the form premade, so I’m making them with the next best thing I can find from either Dollar Tree or the 99c store. I’m also using mesh for the 1st time.

Below is now my new Valentine wreath for 2016. The picture tutorial is here. I hope you enjoy a little humor that I added to it.

Until then,

HAPPY DIY

Back To Blogging – [2015] Year In Review

As I have mentioned in my other blog, I Am A Refashionista Mom, I went on an unplanned hiatus. It’s been 5 months since I last did a DIY, therefore the lack of posts. I just wasn’t able to keep up with the crafting [for the holidays] plan. Below is the few DIY’s I did for 2015. I wanted to use Recycling as a theme for my DIY’s the past year, but it didn’t pan out- so, I just went with crafting as needed, not wanted.

I look forward to 2016. My daughter had made plans for handing out Valentines, and there’s definitely a DIY in the works.

Recycling:
Duct tape covered notebook

Duct tape covered Pringels cans

Valentines:
Post card made out of foam sheets and tulle.

Making window clings re-usable by sticking them to acrylic sheet

Teacher Appreciation Week:
Flower bouquet, Pencil covered Pringles can, Picture Frame note.

Until then,

Happy DIY
