A little Project to do this weekend — Make a Burlap Scrabble Wreath!

19 Nov
Can you believe that next week is THANKGIVING???
  Gah – where did the time go?? There is so much to DO! If you have an hour to spare, here’s a little wreath that will add a little Thanksgiving cheer to your front door:

 {Click on the Read More button for the full tutorial}

Here’s what you need: 

  • A wreath form
  • Burlap — a 36″ square piece should do
  • A few fabric scraps
  • Some Scrabble tiles**
  • Hot glue and gun
  • Two types of coordinating ribbon

**Here’s a fun tip — if you want to make one of these and don’t want to destroy your Scrabble game, you can buy “lots” of Scrabble pieces on ebay or etsy. Or, if you contact Hasbro, you can order a complete replacement set of tiles. It was around $6 for 100 pieces last year.

Here’s what you do: 

  • Cut two pieces of burlap about 4 inches in width by 36 inches in length. Or, if you have a long piece of burlap you can use a 72 inch strip. Hot glue one end of the strip to the back of the wreath. Then wrap the burlap around your wreath. My wreath form was 12 inches wide, so if you are using a bigger form, you will need a longer piece of burlap.
 
  • Once the form is wrapped in burlap, set it aside. Now you will make some rolled flowers. I made  18 flowers in different sizes. For each flower, you will need a strip of material about 1 inch in width by either 32 inches, 24 inches or 18 inches, depending on how wide you want the flower to be. Fold the material in half width-wise and then roll it tightly about 8 times. Then add a dab of hot glue and twist the material around the rolled center, adding glue as you roll. The flower will continue to get bigger until you reach the end of the material. Then add some hot glue to the back and glue down the end of the material underneath the flower. For more in-depth instruction, check out my Rolled Flower Tutorial.
  • Now that you have the flowers made, lay out the scrabble pieces to whatever saying you want to display on your wreath. Then hot glue the tiles onto a piece of paper. Then cut out the tiles, trimming very close to the edges so no paper is showing.
 
  • Hot glue the Scrabble tiles to the wreath.
  • Now lay out the rolled flowers on the wreath. Once you are happy with the placement. Hot glue the flowers to the burlap wreath.
 
  • Cut the two coordinating ribbon for the top of the wreath. Make a loop of ribbon for the top of the wreath to hang on the door or wall. Then cut another length of the two ribbon and make a bow. Attach the bow at the top of the wreath to the loop. 
  • Hang up and enjoy your new wreath!

**Here’s another fun idea — use Scrabble Holders and letters to spell out your family’s names at the table!

Thanksgiving Project — Turn an old window into Thankful Art!

2 Nov
I found an old glass cabinet door on the side of the road this summer. And instead of just driving by, I popped it into the back of my car.  I’ll show you how I made it into something festive and fun!

 My friend Beckie at Infarrantly Creative, the queen of Roadkill Rescue is rubbing off on me – LOL.
The window’s been sitting in my craft room waiting for a redo. I started making it over about a month ago. I originally was going to paint pumpkins on it, but after two craft fails, I gave up on my painting skills. So on to round two — and in came my Silhouette.
First I took off the hinges and painted the frame. I chose a really neutral tan for the frame. I added a little polyurethane over the top.
I printed off a scrolly design for the top and the bottom of the frame. And then used Edwardian Script for the “Be Thankful”.
I took a piece of plywood and cut it to the same size as the inside of the frame. Then I covered the plywood with a very thin layer of batting and fabric. I wrapped the fabric around the back of the plywood sheet and attached it to the wood with Gorilla Glue Tape. And that tape also attached the frame to the back of the window.
The last thing I did was add a sparkly knob! 
 Very easy project. And if I ever get tired of the Thanksgiving Saying, I can take the vinyl off, print something new and switch out the fabric for a different look!
And — I have some exciting news coming up regarding Silhouette so stay tuned!!
I’m sharing this over at The CSI Project.
