Our Urban Garden

Hi Everyone!

I hope that you are all having a great week so far. Today I thought that I would share some pictures from our garden. Yes, even if you live in a big city like Chicago it is possible to have a garden. 🙂  We are growing tomatoes, a mini eggplant, jalapeños, basil and cilantro. We also have flowers on the railings and in two pots. We got everything at Home Depot and planted it back here ourselves. What do you all think? Do any of you have a garden?

 

Thank you so much for stopping by and I hope that you all have a wonderful day! 🙂

Christmas Wreath

Hi Everyone!

I hope that you are all having a great week so far. Today I wanted to share my Christmas wreath with you. Since this year we are going to be gone for both Christmas and New Years, I didn’t put up that many holiday decorations this year. However, since my Christmas wreath that I made last year fell apart, I decided to make a new one. Thanks to the glitter ribbon that I used. It went everywhere, and it didn’t hold together well with glue. Anyway…My mom gave me some holiday floral and I decided to use it to make a wreath. Instead of going out and buying a new wreath base, I ended up just repurposing a burlap wreath that I had already.

 

Here is what you will need:

 

– Wire wreath base, I used a 16 inch one.

– 2 yards of burlap

– Spool of ribbon.

– Hot glue gun

– Some holiday embellishments of your choice

Instructions for the wreath:

For the bubble burlap look that I used, check out this tutorial. It’s a little hard for me to explain so I’m making it a little easier by providing you a link to a tutorial. However, if you decide to use a foam wreath base, just wrap the burlap around the wreath base. You can push the embellishments through the burlap and then use the glue gun to secure them.

As for the bow, that was actually a lot easier than I thought it would be! This was the first time that I was able to get the bow to come out like that. Anyway, here are my instructions on how to do that:

1. Fold your ribbon in half then scrunch it in the middle like this.

2. While holding onto your scrunched ribbon, cut a skinnier piece of ribbon. Wrap it around the middle like this.

3. And you end up with a Pinterest worthy bow. 🙂 To get the bow to stay, just fold up the ribbon and glue it. If you want a bow with some ribbon hanging on each side, just use more fabric. Otherwise you will have a bow like the one in my picture here.

You can find all of the supplies to make this wreath at Michael’s. What do you all think? Do you enjoy making holiday decorations?

Halloween Wreath

IMG_2306

 

Hi Everyone!

I hope that you are having a great week so far. Today I’m excited to be sharing my first craft project on here! 🙂  Making wreaths is something that I started doing two years ago. I now have one for every season and for almost every holiday. They are really easy and fun to do, plus they are cheaper than buying a pre-made one. Since Halloween is next week, I wanted to share a Halloween wreath that I made yesterday.

 

 

Supplies:

– 1 18 inch tinsel wreath

– 1 package of Halloween sticker embellishments

– 1 package of a tiny Halloween pennant banner.

– 1 spool of ribbon of your choice.

– Hot glue gun

Instructions:

1. Tie the ribbon around the top part of the wreath. I tie mine in a bow around the door hook that I use.

2. Place your sticker embellishments around the wreath. Use the hot glue gun to secure your embellishments.

3.  Wrap the pennant banner around the wreath as if it is garland.

4. Hang on your front door, or any place you would like. 🙂

 

I bought all of the supplies for this project at Michael’s and it cost me $7 dollars because I used a 40% off coupon. I highly recommend registering to have their coupons emailed to you. They have them almost every day and they are always really good. I hope that you enjoyed this post and stay tuned for more craft project posts! 🙂

 

Thank you so much for stopping by and have a great day!
