A Simple Banner for The Wearin’ o’ the Green Challenge

Whether you follow me on Pinterest, Instagram, Facebook, or here, you will notice that I often create seasonal home decorations and most end up in my craftroom. With our home currently under renovation, this is the only place I have control over so I make sure it is a space I can retreat to during the madness.  This week, I decided to take part in the Wearin’ o’ the Green Challenge that is being host by both Heart2Heart and Double Trouble and created a simple St. Patrick’s Day Banner to brighten up my room.

MissCarriesCreations-StPatricksDayBannerDetailI began by opening up Design Space™ (one of my favorite places to be) and created the Clovers using our Flower Market collection. These images are already designed to be three-dimensional, so I didn’t have to manipulate them to create this great effect. I wanted to add a little texture to the clovers, so I used a Swiss Dot embossing folder to dry emboss the leaves, some Toffee ink on the edges, and a Cork Shape in the center. MissCarriesCreations-StPatricksDayBannerCloverThe small Flags were made using simple Triangle shapes sized to 1.5″ x 2.75″ then decorated with small Heart shapes to match. I cut these from White Daisy, Clover, and Kraft paper, then sponged the edges with Toffee ink. I had debated making some of the flags gold or orange (to match the Irish flag), but my home is full of primitive decor so the Kraft Paper seemed to be a better choice. I like how well it goes with the Cork Shapes and Jute Twine. 
MissCarriesCreations-StPatricksDayBannerFlagsLast, but not least, those ADORABLE Paper Pom-Poms. I created those using our Fringe Border from the Fancy Border Thin Cuts.  I will post a tutorial next Tuesday showing you how to create your own set of Pom-Poms. 

MissCarriesCreations-StPatricksBanner

After all of the components were assembled, I attached them to some Jute Twine. If you look closely, you can see that I added a few frayed knots near each of the Pom-Poms. This not only keeps them in place, but it adds some distressed primitive texture to the banner.

I hope that you enjoyed this whimsical St. Patrick’s Day Banner and that you will consider joining me for the monthly challenge at Heart2Heart and Double Trouble.

I can’t wait to see what you create!

Magnolia Frame-It-Up Seasonal Wreath

Call me crazy, but I take pleasure in a piece of Home Decor that I can change each season.  Maybe it’s the creator in me or the indecisive hormones, nonetheless, having the ability to change my home decor intermittently is something I enjoy.  This week, I decided to create a simple wreath that I can change throughout the year using the components from the Magnolia Frame-It-Up kit.  This simple project is something you can easily recreate for your home.

My wreath base was cut at 11″ in diameter and  1½ wide from a piece of Foam Board, then wrapped it with Cotton Twine. By creating it from Foam Board, the wreath can be hung on a hook flush with the frame. After assembling the base, I began working on the leaves and flowers.  Since Magnolia leaves are naturally glossy, I used a foam brush to paint the front and back of each of the paper leaves in the kit with Gloss Mod Podge.  If you are not a fan of Mod Podge, you can use our Liquid Glass to achieve the same effect.(I happened to be out when I made this.) 

The Magnolia Flowers in the kit have a grey center, but since my home has Americana decor, and I wanted to bring some red into my flowers. As I contemplated what shade of red to use, I thought,”Why not add glitter?”, (you can never have enough glitter) so I grabbed my Red Shimmer Brush and brushed the center of each flower.

The gold center of each flower is beautifully designed, but I felt like it could use “a little more” so I added some Gold Pearls. This product is currently retired, but you could either paint our White Pearls with a Gold Marker, or use some of our Gold Gems instead. (If you would like instructions for creating ‘realistic’ flowers, sign-up for my online Frame-it-up class on Facebook.)

Assembling the wreath was very simple. The leaves were glued directly to the Cotton Twine around the wreath base and the flowers were attached using Foam Dots. I punched out a few of the “Gold Twigs” from the kit and glued them randomly around the flowers and hung the wreath onto the frame.

This was a very simple project and one that I can’t wait to display in my home. My plan is to show you the additional wreaths as I build them through the year. If you choose to create this Magnolia Frame-It-Up Wreath, make sure to sign-up for my newsletter so that you can see the other wreaths. I can’t wait to see what you create!
