DIY Bunny Wreath on a Budget

My daughter turned 2 over the Easter weekend and we celebrated with a bunny themed birthday party. We had food, games and an Egg hunt. She had a blast. 

In preparation for the party I made a bunny wreath.

It was sunny and really when are all the 
kids ever looking at the camera

I didn't have the budget to make or buy a grapevine bunny wreath. Although I think they are adorable and hope to make one for next year. I went to Pinterest and found this tissue paper wreath tutorial. And the wheels started turning and thus the idea was born for this Tissue Paper Bunny Wreath. 

I found this great Grapevine Bunny Wreath Tutorial Here, which I will use someday. 

Then found the Flower Wreath Tutorial Here

I used followed her tutorial only I added cardboard ears to mine. It was easy and very inexpensive. I had everything on hand but you can find white tissue paper and most dollar stores. It fit my budget very well. I added a bow with hot glue and it was done. I finished in an evening while watching House with my husband. 

Thanks for stopping by! Hope you enjoyed!

Baptism Towel & Poem

We have a family friend who is getting baptized this week. I made her this towel. I bought the towel at Ross and the trim and Joann's. I simply sewed the trim to the bottom of the towel. If you get one yard of your trim will should have some to spare with most standard towels. 

I also made this tag to attach to the towel. Feel free to download and use it as well. 

We are excited for her to make this step in her life. Thanks for visiting!

Days Until Chalkboard

These have been very popular with my friends and family and I wanted to share them. 

These Days Until Chalkboard count down signs are great for any occasion. You can count down the "days until" a new baby, a birthday, a Disney vacation, a special holiday like Christmas, the last day of school, a wedding, and all the great day your family looks forward to. 

You can purchase the kit to make it yourself here at Vinyl Lettering Co's etsy shop. They make great gifts and you can even say "I made it myself".

Waiting for Baby Crafts

Hello fellow crafters. It has been a long time. Around the time of my post on Mary Endelbreit Shadow Box I got a new full time job and found out I was pregnant. This might give you an idea of why I have only had one post since then. Recently I stopped working to get ready for the baby. He is due April 20th. However I am going to be induced sometime next week. YAY! I have been on bed rest and not able to do a whole lot but have done a few crafts while waiting for our bundle of joy. I got this Fossil Key Per Messenger Tote for my birthday back in November, Thanks to my mother-in-law. Love it! Unfortunately this color is no longer available but there are many other patterns that are fun and retro. I am using it for a diaper bag and wanted some accessories to go with it.

I made just a few. I used this D.I.Y. boutique wipes case tutorial from According to Kelly and made a matching wipe case. It is hard to see but I quilted the top layers of fabric.

I like this tutorial because of the way the trim is done. There are so many tutorials out there that I am sure offer other great ideas.

The other accessory I made was a changing pad. I used Homemade by Jill's tutorial. Her changing pad turned out so fabulous. I really liked what she did with embellishments and detail. I followed it to a T.

My inside fabric was not laminated fabric. I already had some Heat n Bond Vinyl and used that to water-proof my changing pad. We will see how it holds up. If you have used it before leave a comment and let us know how it worked for you. The fabric on the inside is the same fabric I used for another project I did for the baby as well. I will post that later.

It's been great getting back to the blogging world. Hope you enjoy.
