4th of July Craft: Patriotic Wreath

I can’t believe that the 4th of July is only a few weeks away!  Where has June gone?  This 4th is a special one for our family, since it is my husband’s first as a U.S. citizen so I really want to go all out.  I saw this wreath on pinterest and fell in love.  It looks pretty easy to make, just time intensive.  I guess I better get moving then.  Thanks for the idea Capital B!

Here’s what you need to make this:

  • 6 red, 6 white and 4 blue felt sheets
  • scissors
  • straight pins
  • rounded foam wreath
  • craft wire
  • white cardstock

Father’s Day Craft: Photo Collage

Father’s Day is just a month away so it is time to start thinking about the perfect gift to give that special man in your life.  This photo collage is such a cute and meaningful gift idea.  It would look perfect in Dad’s office or on his nightstand.  I think we will probably even make one for Grandpa.  He would love it!  Thanks for the idea Positively Splendid!

Easter Craft: Boo-Boo Bunnies and Chicks!

I have very fond memories of making the boo-boo bunnies as a child!  The chicks are new to me but still oh so very cute!  Both are the perfect size for placing an Easter egg in for Easter morning and then later on a piece of ice can be placed in them to help soothe all those bumps and boo-boos that come with little ones.  Thanks for sharing Own Two Hands!

Here’s what you need to make the bunnies:

– face cloth
– narrow ribbon(s)
– 2 googly eyes
– 2 pompoms (one large for the tail, one smaller for the nose)
– needle and thread to match the face cloth and/or hot glue gun
