Hi! Erica here! It's been awhile since I last posted. I'm sorry. I'm quite the slacker. Life is busy. But, I like it that way.
Here's what I've been working on...
Here's my shelf for St. Patrick's Day!
Love how it turned out. Almost everything is homemade.
I got the wooden shamrocks from a friend, un-decorated. I painted them, and modged podged glitter, and paper on the other ones.
I wrote on the mason jar with a hot glue gun, and then painted over it. I bought me some pom pom makers, and made some with my fingers too for the flowers and wreath. To make the wreath I cut out a big circle out of the top of my pizza box and cut out the center. I then wrapped all around it with yarn and then hot glued all the poms on until I liked how it looked.
Here's a video tutorial for pompom making.
I then filled a mason jar full of some golden nugget chocolates and topped that with skittles. Of course skittles don't have blue in them, so I crumpled up some blue construction paper to add the blue in the rainbow.
And the adorable chalk frame was made by me sweet sister, Monica. Love how I can write something new whenever I feel like it.
Last but not least is my cute garland. I crocheted a bunch of shamrocks with different shades of green and then strung them on a single strand of white yarn. Love it!
Here's the tutorial I used to make these cute little things.
Sadly, I don't have a mantel. So, I make do with a gorgeous shelf that I have in my living room. I look forward to decorating it for each season/holiday. It's a lot of fun and I always love showing it off. :o) If you have any questions, just shoot me an email or leave a comment. I'll do my best to help out.
Have a happy Tuesday!
