Tutorial Tuesday – Paper Floral Headpieces

Floral headpieces are nothing new and usually made using fresh flowers. We L-O-V-E how gorgeous the fresh flowers look, but we wanted to try and mimic the gorgeous-ness using paper flowers and Heidi Swapp’s Color Shine sprays instead! And we were SO happy with how it turned out!

You won’t believe how realistic it looks, how easy it is to make, and we loved how we were able to make it totally customizeable with the Color Shine sprays! And best part?? Your hard work will be rewarded with a headpiece that will last longer than a few days :)

We’re going to show you how to make a fancy version and a simple version too! And these look beautiful not only on a baby, but on children, teens, and adults as well :)

floral headpiece

For supplies you’ll need…

- White Prima Flowers

- Heidi Swapp Color Shine sprays (We used Coral, Blush, and Pink)

- 1-2 yards elastic or ribbon

- Scrap piece of felt that will be the base for your fancy floral headpiece

- 3″ x 5.5″ piece of felt for the bow on your simple headpiece version

- Gold glitter (optional)

- Hot glue

- Paint brush

- 6″ piece of white string

 

We’ll start with the fancy version!

First we determined which flowers we wanted to use and how we wanted them to layout. This helped to decide which Color Shine spray we would use with each flower.

floral headpiece

We sprayed the flowers pretty generously with the Color Shine spray (spraying the backside of the flower too), and then took a paintbrush and dipped it into the Color Shine bottle and filled in any remaining white areas on the flower with the paint brush.

floral headpiece

floral headpiece

For our gold flowers, we sprayed them with a mustard yellow Color Shine spray and took a paint brush and liquid glue (specfically – Tombow Aqua), and we gently painted glue onto the top of the flowers and then immediately dipped them in the gold glitter.

floral headpiece

Let all your flowers dry completely before you assemble the headpiece.

Once they were dry, we laid them out on our elastic again to determine where we wanted them to go. We took a piece of felt that was slightly shorter and skinnier than the width and length of our flowers. And then we hot glued the flowers onto the felt. To disguise the felt from being visible on the headpiece we used plenty of hotglue to stick some of the petals to the felt so that most of it wasn’t showing. The only thing we wish we would have done differently is used felt that was the same color as our elastic lace. That would have helped to make the felt completely blend in with the elastic better.

floral headpiece

Once we had all our flowers hot glued on the felt, we then hot glued that on top of the lace. Since the lace isn’t “solid” you’ll want to make sure you don’t hot glue it on a piece of paper or anything that make attach itself to your headpiece later. We used a Splat Mat for ours.

floral headpiece

Since we were using elastic lace, we decided not to trim ours and left it long so we could tie it on in a bow on the back of the baby’s head later :) But if you want, you can measure the persons head wearing the headpiece and trim and glue the ends of your lace like a headband.

And here it is on! So pretty!

floral headpiece

And now the simple version!

First you’ll cut out a 3″ x 5.5″ piece of felt. Pinch the middle of it together and using a piece of string, tie it onto the elastic in a knot to hold in place.

Take a flower that has been colored with Color Shine spray and hot glue right it on top of the center of your bow.

floral headpiece

You can either trim the ribbon/elastic to fit the person’s head wearing it or tie it in a bow again like we did with the fancy version. And if you aren’t able to measure the persons head, here is a great chart we used for head sizes!

Headband size guideline

And here is the second version all finished! So easy to make and so cute!

And both headpieces together :)

Tutorial Tuesday – Christmas Ornaments

Today we’re making Christmas ornaments using Bazzill’s chipboard Antique Frames!

These are awesome to give away as gifts (Maybe with a homemade treat too?) or to make as a keepsake for your own tree! Either way it’s a guaranteed easy and inexpensive holiday project to make for yourself or your loved ones :)

Supplies:

-We used the scallop circle shape for our ornaments, but Bazzill makes 6 different antique frames to choose from :)

Christmas Ornaments

-And then we collected a bunch of Christmas embellishments, paper, and stuff we had already on hand.  Every product used for each ornament is listed below!

Christmas Ornaments

We’re going to show you FIVE different ways you can create your one-of-a-kind ornament!

Christmas ornaments

For the first ornament we left the chipboard frame as is and then simply hot glued the embellishments and ribbon on (The “Merry Christmas” sign is from Basic Grey’s 25th & Pine line and the bottle brush tree is from Fancy Pants – All sold at ETC!)

Christmas Ornament

Before you glue our embellishments on, you’ll want to attach your picture to the frame. All you have to do is cut out a 3 1/2″ circle on a scrap piece of card stock. Trace the circle on the picture. Cut out the picture and using a tape adhesive (we used 1/4″ Scor tape) tape around the edge of the picture in a few spots and attach it to your frame.

Christmas Ornaments

We then took our ribbon and embellishments, hot glued them on, and then cut out another 3 1/2″ circle out of a Christmas cardstock, and glued it to the backside of the ornament to cover up the back of the picture and ribbon. This gives it a more finished look. You could also print out a little Christmas message and adhere that to the backside of the ornament too as an added personalized detail.

Christmas Ornaments

Christmas Ornaments

Moving on to the second ornament! For this one we used a red Glimmer Mist and sprayed the chipboard frame generously. We gave it a monochromatic look by hot gluing a bunch of red embellishments to the front of the chipboard frame (All from Fancy Pants and 25th & Pine – Links to the products are above with the first ornament).  We repeated the same process with our picture and twine as we did with the first ornament.

Christmas Ornament

For the third ornament, we used our left over spray paint from our advent calendar and very light sprayed one coat onto the front of the chipboard frame. We wanted the newsprint design to still show through. We then took some scrapbook paper from the 25th & Pine collection and made a paper bow. We used THIS tutorial from Van Laer Designs blog to make ours. SO easy and SO cute! And to finish it we hot glued the bow on. To give the tails on the bow extra dimension, we used foam squares to adhere them with AND to make them pop off the frame a little.  We used a metallic red/white twine from ETC’s ribbon wall to hang the ornament with.

Christmas Ornament

The fourth ornament we spray painted gold! We did a few coats to completely cover up the newsprint design on the chipboard frame. Once it was dry, we hot glued a Santa embellishment onto the front (also from Basic Grey’s 25th & Pine collection). We cut out a strip of red felt, about 1/2″ wide, and we created a loop and hot glued that to the back of the ornament to hang it up with. We love how simple this ornament was to make!

Christmas Ornament

And last, but not least! For our fifth ornament we used white chunky glitter from American Crafts and glued it to the front to make it winter wonderland themed :) We used the white bottle brush tree from Fancy Pants and 2 white snowflake embellishments from Doodlebug and hot glued them to the front of the ornament. And then our favorite part, we cut a piece of white tulle from the ribbon wall, created a loop, and hot glued it to the backside of the ornament to hang it from a tree branch with. Classes it up a bit, right? :)

Christmas Ornament

We had so much fun making our personalized handmade ornaments!

Tutorial Tuesday – Baby Doll

Today we’re making a baby doll!

This doll is super easy to make and is a great beginner project.

This also makes an awesome handmade gift for any doll loving girl in your life :)

baby doll

To make this doll you’ll need:

-1/4 yard of minky

-1/8 yard (OR 6″ x 6″ scrap piece) of coordinating fabric

-1/8 yard (OR 6″ x 12″ scrap piece) of canvas (Sold at ETC!)

-1/4 yard of trim for the baby’s bonnet (Sold at ETC!)

-Embroidery floss (We used gray for the eyes and mouth, orange for the hair, and light pink for the cheeks)

-Embroidery needle

-Batting (Sold at ETC!)

-Frixion Pen

First you’ll need to cut out a 6″x12″ piece out of your minky and canvas.

baby doll

Take a 6″ circle (we used a circle cutter to make ours) and round out the top two corners of both pieces.

baby doll

Set your minky aside for now. Take your canvas and with your frixion pen and draw a face. Don’t worry about making it perfect. The best part about a Frixion pen is you can easily erase any mistakes with your iron :)

baby doll

If you don’t feel confident in your drawing skills, you can use the face template from our toothy fairy pouches to help you out.

baby doll

Using a simple back stitch, embroider the face onto the canvas with your floss.

Now, pin the trim in place along the head of the baby.

baby doll

Using a 1/4″ seam allowance, sew the trim in place.

baby doll

Next cut out a 6″ x 6″ piece of your coordinating fabric for the baby doll’s shirt.

 baby doll

Press one side over a 1/4″

baby doll

Pin right below the baby doll’s face and sew along folded edge. Sew along bottom to hold in place also.

baby doll

baby doll

Now you’ll need to cut out two 6″ x 9″ pieces of minky.

baby doll

Fold one corner over till it aligns with opposite edge. Trim the triangle shaped piece off along the fold. Repeat with the second piece of minky, but make sure it is a mirror image of the first piece.

Take one of those minky pieces and lay it on top of the canvas (example pic below). Make sure the top corner hangs over the edge about 1/2″ and the bottom corner comes in a 1/2″. Pin in place.

baby doll

Sew a 1/4″ along the edge.

Repeat with the second minky piece.

baby doll

Now you’ll take the first minky piece you cut out at the very beginning, and with right sides together pin the minky and baby doll together.

baby doll

With 1/4″ seam allowance, sew along one corner going up around the curved side and then through the second corner. Leave the bottom open so you can fill it with batting later. Make sure to back stitch at the beginning and end.

Turn the doll right side out, and with your batting stuff the doll till it’s completely full and evenly distributed.

baby doll

Once it’s full with batting, you’ll ladder stitch the bottom closed. HERE is a great video tutorial for those that aren’t familiar with a ladder stitch.

baby doll

And you’re finished!

Tutorial Tuesday – Advent Calendar

It’s never too early to start thinking about Christmas, right?? ;)

Today we’re making an advent calendar using a perforated metal sheet that we now sell at ETC!

advent calendar

These metal sheets come in several different designs and can be used for so many projects!

For the advent calendar, you’ll need:

~12×24 perforated metal sheet in the “clover” design – Buy yours at ETC!

~Basic Grey’s 25th & Pine Embellishments (You could really use ANY Christmas line you like though!)

~Maya Road Chipboard Snowflakes

~White or Silver Glitter

~Spray Paint – We used Krylon’s Pistachio in satin

~Hook Clips – We bought ours in a 24 pack <perfect!> from Ikea for a few bucks!

~PDF Tag File on cardstockAdventTags1  AdventTags2  AdventTags3

~Small Glassine bags – Also sold at ETC!

~A few yards of twine or ribbon

~Your favorite treats to fill 24 bags with :)

SONY DSC

advent calendar

First you’ll want to spray paint your metal sheet. You’ll want to spray about 3 coats or until it’s completely covered.

Next you’ll print and cut out your 24 tags and hole punch them at the top. We cut a little outside the edge of the tag, but you can cut right on the line if you prefer.

advent calendar

We then took 7 chipboard snowflakes, covered them in glue and glitter and let them dry.

advent calendar

We took our embellishments and a small hole punch and punched little holes in them to string our twine through later.

Now you’ll just be assembling!

advent calendar

We took our glassine bags and filled them with treats and closed them up with a strip of washi tape from the 25th & Pine line.

advent calendar

We then took a piece of twine and strung it through one or two embellishments and one tag and tied it in a knot together.

Take a hook clip and clip your tag and treat bag together and hang from the metal sheet!

advent calendar

Repeat 23 more times :)

advent calendars

And now you have an easy and so cute advent calendar! And plenty of time to make one before December 1st. You can switch it up every year with a fresh coat of paint and your new favorite Christmas line too :)

advent calendar

Enjoy! Happy Tuesday Everyone!

Tutorial Tuesday – Ombre Fabric Garland

Today we’re showing you how to make a fabric garland with an ombre twist :)

These are so easy to assemble and make such a big impact, whether it be for a backdrop at a party or hung up as decoration in your home.

Ombre Fabric Garland

Here’s what you need to make one!

-1 yard of three different fabrics (1 yard=2 1/2 ft of garland – You can get more or less fabric depending on how long you want your garland to be)

-12 yards of rope, thick string, or narrow ribbon (cut into 4 yard increments)

-Scissors

ombre fabric garland

Take your one yard cuts of fabric and with your scissors cut along the selvage edge about half an inch down and every 1-2″ along the edge (Ignore the white fabric in this picture. We changed our minds and only ended up using the pink fabrics)

ombre fabric garland

Then all you have to do is just rip the fabric into strips. Clip and rip, as we like to say :) Take those strips of fabric and cut them in half so they’ll end up being about 22″ long.

ombre fabric garland

You’ll then have a bunch of strips to hang from your string/rope/ribbon.

ombre fabric garland

To attach it to your string, you’ll fold the strip in half, and with the loop at the top, place it underneath the string about an inch or so down.

ombre fabric garland

Take the two tails at the bottom and, going over the string, thread them through the loop.

ombre fabric garland

While gently grasping the loop end, pull the two tails so that it forms a knot around the string. You’ll know you did it right if you’re able to slide the fabric back and forth on your string.

ombre fabric garland

You’ll want to repeat this process until you have all of one color on one string.

ombre fabric garland

And then repeat that two more times with your other 2 colors :)

And then TA-DA! You’re finished!

ombre fabric garland

And here it is, in all it’s glory, at ETC :) Stop in to check it out in person!

This would be so cute above a crib, a couch, a cake at a party…the list goes on. Hope you enjoyed today’s tutorial!

Tutorial Tuesday – Easy Fall Wreath Ideas

Today we’re showing you TWO ideas for fall wreaths using an embroidery hoop and paper! Easy and inexpensive!

The first idea uses Bazzill’s paper Harvest Leaves. 4 packs of them to be exact! And a 7″ embroidery hoop.

Fall wreath

First just remove the outer hoop and set aside (it can be used for another wreath project later on). Heat up your glue gun and grab one leaf and gently crease it down the middle, to give it extra dimension.

fall wreath

Hot glue a small portion of the embroidery hoop and stick the leaf on top. Layer the leaves on top of each other going in a counter clock-wise direction.

fall wreath

 

When you reach the end, take your last leaf and glue it underneath your first leaf. This small wreath is cute enough to hang on a door or make a few more and hang them from the back of your kitchen chairs like we did with our Halloween wreaths a few months ago :)

The second idea uses 3-5 sheets of Basic Grey’s Persimmon line and a 12″ embroidery hoop.

fall wreath

This time you’ll leave both hoops together. Just make sure it’s tightened as much as possible. Cut each 12×12 paper into 1″ x 6″ strips of paper.

fall wreath

 

Take one strip and hot glue the two ends together to make a loop.

fall wreath

 

Then out glue that loop on the embroidery hoop.

fall wreath

 

Continue making loops and hot gluing them to your embroidery hoop till you make it full circle. This wreath would be great to embellish, but we preferred ours simplified :) You could also paint your embroidery hoop (maybe in gold??) to match your fall paper before you start hot gluing your paper on. This last idea is so versatile and can go with any theme or season just depending on what paper you use!

Hope you liked our fall wreath ideas! Happy Tuesday everyone!

Tutorial Tuesday – {Skinny} Wire Headband

We’ve been loving all the wire headbands we’ve been seeing on Pinterest lately! So cute, they stay in place, and no headband headaches (our favorite part!).

So we thought, why not create a skinny version of it??

And here is what we came up with!

skinny wire headband

Basically it’s just bias tape with wire in it. So easy!

Here is what you need to make one…

- A 2″ x 35″ strip of fabric

- 20 gauge aluminum metal wire

skinny wire headband

That’s it!

First you take your strip of fabric and press it in half lengthwise.

skinny wire headband

Open back up the strip so the wrong side is facing you, and press both sides (lengthwise) towards the  middle, along the center crease you just made.

skinny wire headband

Now press in half again.

skinny wire headband

You can do this at the beginning or now, but open up each end and press over a 1/4″ and then press it back closed so that you don’t have raw ends anymore.

skinny wire headband

Now you’re ready to sew!

This part we realized while making ours, but originally we sewed one end closed. We discovered it is WAY easier to hot glue the ends closed instead of sewing. So we recommend, hotgluing one end closed first.

You can hot glue your ends closed instead of sewing like in the picture above :)

You can hot glue your ends closed instead of sewing like in the picture above :)

Then take it over to your sewing machine, and about an 1/8″ away from the open edge, sew it closed from top to bottom.

You’ll then measure out a 36″ piece of wire. Fold over both ends and wrap around the wire creating a loop. This is so you don’t have to worry about the wire poking through the headband later.

skinny wire headband

Stick it through the open end of the headband and slide it all the way in, and then taking your glue gun, glue the other end closed.

skinny wire headband

And you now have the easiest, cutest headband ever!

Here are a few fun ways we like to wear it…

In a simple knot…

OR

In a messy bow…

These make awesome gifts for adults or kids! And are great to make using leftover fabric scraps!
