Jewelry display repurposed painted vintage frame.

I found my frame a while back a local thrift store..

 Painted it whicker white, to match my whicker furniture in my bedroom.
I absolutely love the detail on the frame that pops out just a little.
  I had this lace that I ripped off an old skirt of mine!
Hot glued it to the back of the frame.

Ready and waiting to display your beautiful jewelry!

So cute and very shabby Chic~

Valentine's Vintage Heart Garland~

I use a old book that I had, to make my heart garland out of.

I ripped out some pages of the book & folded it in half. Then I traced a half of a heart & cut it out.
I took a piece of ribbon and taped it to one side of the heart, follow by a paper heart on the opposite side.

Happy Thursday!

DIY Felt Envelopes

I oringinally started these before Christmas but with my father passing away, I never got around to finishing them around that time, so I finally got the chance recently. They make such a great gift idea for any younger children, especially toddlers!

Basically I just cut out different sizes out of the felt & next i sewed up the edges.

I made fake stamps with buttons,gems or with smaller felt shapes.

Then I bought some sticky aheasive felt & attach it to the back of the envelopes so they could be sealed.

Very simple & very reasonable to make!

CupCake Liner Pom Poms Tutorial

All you need is...
Cupcake liners *any color of your choice*
A glue gun
A styrofoam ball

Step 1:Start by separating all your liners.

Then take one of your pins & stick it straight through the middle!

 Once you have it straight through the liner, flatten the liner completely to look like this.

Then add just a dab of glue to the center. Just a tip ~ I had my glue gun on set to the lowest setting, so I wouldn't burn myself*

Then carefully roll your liner up, to look like this.

Then carefully stick it into the styrofoam ball.
 Slowly, it starts to look like this! So cute right?!
  Allmost there!!

 Now isn't that a beauty! I originally made this for my house decor, but really could be used to decorate anything like, weddings, parties.. you name it, whatever makes your heart happy!
