Christmas cards !

Hi there!

A few blogposts ago I promised you to show you my Christmas cards for this year. I’ve already made them months ago, but I’m finally showing them to you. I’m a true Christmaslover I must say. That may be one of the reasons why I’ve got my cards ready for a while.

It’s very simple to make them. You just cut circles out of coloring paper or magazines or whatever you find. To make it easier you can use a paper puncher.
Next, you glue them on to your card, making the shape of a Christmas tree. You can finish it of with whatever you want, I used bow stickers and I absolutely love the result.

Now tell me, do you prefer to make or buy your Christmas cards? Let me know!

Wreaths !

Hi everyone !

So I saw this idea on welke.nl for a nice fall wreath. I liked it so much, that I decided to make one myself, inspired by this picture.

This is what it turned out to be:

wreath-1

It’s really easy to make. This is what you’ll need:

  • felt
  • wool
  • wire (I used textile yarn)
  • a styrofoam wreath
  • pins
  • scissors
  • glue (I used a hot glue gun)

I simply started by winding the textile yarn around the styrofoam wreath. On the back, I secured them with some pins to make sure they stay in place.

Next I cut out diamond shapes form the felt. I drew them myself by using a ruler, but you can also use a pattern to do that. I then glued the felt onto the wreath.

Next I took my wool and started winding around the  wreath. To secure them, I again used some pins on the back.

To finish it off, I cut out a felt owl and glued it on. You can also use flowers or butterflies or whatever you want.

So that was it! I hope you liked it. Let me know what you think and if you ever make one yourself, show me! If you want to make other (fall)wreaths, here’s a link of some inspiration I found: http://www.bystephanielynn.com/2012/10/fifty-fall-wreath-ideas-inspiration-for-the-entire-autumn-season.html

Have fun!

Decorating with flowers – part three

Hi there!

Time for a third part of the decorating with flowers – series. This time, it’s another fall-piece I made with beautiful roses in fall-colors. I just took a piece of wood, put a flower arrangement that I made on it (using roses and ivy) and finished it off with some pinecones, chestnuts and a branch. And this what it turned out!

It’s really autumny and it fits every interior. So what do you think of it?

Decorating with flowers – part two

Hi there!

I’m back with part two of decorating with flowers. Again, this was inspired by the decoration course I took. We made this cute flower arrangement with hydrangeas and this is the result:

Tadaaa !

So proud of it! Now, it’s been a few weeks since I made it, so the colors have really changed by now. They’re not as bright anymore. I found it perfect for fall, with the changed colors. So I decided to change it up a bit and make it more ‘fall’. Here’s what I made of it:

Et voilà!

I don’t know which one I prefer. The original one was really nice with the bright pink and red. But this one I like too, because it’s so seasonal and cosy. Which one do you prefer? Tell me in the comments!

See you next time!

Decorating with flowers – part one

Hi there!

So I don’t know if I’ve told you this, but since this month I’m joining a decoration-course along with my sister. The first lesson was mostly introduction, but we also made some cute vases with balloons. The principle is simple:

1. Take a balloon (preferbly metallic and strong) in a pretty color.
2. Fill the balloon with sand (or whatever you want). You can do this easily by filling an empty waterbottle (1/2 liter). Blow up the balloon, put the ‘mouth’ of the balloon on top of your bottle, and poor the sand in. Then carefully let the air out of the balloon.
3. Put a pipette in the balloon and you can put whatever flower you want in it. Here is my result (sorry for the bad quality. I forgot to make a picture of it but then remembered I had one on my instagram, but it was taking with my phone):

Naamloos-1

Now everyone who’s coming to our house, are noticing them and are complementing on them. It’s so easy, but it can really bring color to the room.

With this project, I told you guys step by step how to make it. With the other classes, I’m not going to do that. It’s out of respect for our lovely teacher. I will, however, show you guys what I made! It can be some nice inspiration.

Next time, I will show you the next flower-project we made. It’s a cute flower arrangement with hydrangeas. So excited to show it to you guys!

So see you next time!

New cards, a bird-series

Hi everybody!

So I noticed lately I make my cards in some kind of series. Last time I showed you some cards with little pearls and now I’ve made a new series. It’s a ‘Bird-series’. I have found this cute little pattern of a bird which I loved so much, I started drawing many birds on my scrapbookpaper and cut them out. I was left with all these birds, so I decided to make cards with them. I think they’re really cute and fun, but maybe a bit childish. I might use them for a newborn or a childs birthday. What do you think I can use them for?

I’m really sorry for the bad quality of my photos lately. I’m getting a bit lazy and I’m making my pictures with my phone instead of my camera. So sorry for that!

Also; I’ve made some cute Christmascards already. I will show them to you guys, but I thought it’s still a bit early for Christmascards, so you’ll have to wait a few weeks.

See you guys soon!

Cards & where I got my inspiration

Hi there!

A few days ago I made a new set of cards and I absolutely adore them. It doesn’t seem as if I made them myself, it’s as if I just bought them. And that’s what I really like. 
My inspiration for this I got from Scotland – again Scotland, I know, I just really had a great time there! One day it was starting to rain heavily (really, in Scotland??) and we decided to take shelter in a little cute shop with all these adorable decoration stuff and cute presents. I saw some great cards there, using pearls with letters on. I’ve got some of those pearls left from when I was younger and kept them, even though I knew I would never use them to make bracelets anymore. I remembered the idea and back home, I made it myself. Here is the result! Hope you guys like it 🙂 

Birthday-1

Love-1

Proficiat-1 Note: ‘proficiat’ is Dutch and means ‘congratulations’ 😉

Thank You-1
