The Creative Connection Farewell

The Creative Connection Farewell

Hello, sweet friends!

We are saddened to announce that there will be no party this week. We have taken a close look at the ever changing world of blogging and have decided that after two years, it is time to retire the Creative Connection party. As bloggers, the fun of having a link party is featuring YOU! We strive to show others how fabulous you are. To continue to increase your exposure, the party needs to continue grow and we aren’t.

We are not going away completely though! We will be back for some special edition holiday link parties! So stay tuned for more information to come…

Again,we are have been so honored and blessed that you have partied with us for the last two years! Thank you so much for your continued love and support!

With love,

Barbara, Chelsea, Jill, Meredith, and Sarah

In the meantime, here are my most favorite projects from last week’s Creative Connection party!

Burlap & Floral Grapevine Wreath

Burlap & Floral Grapevine Wreath

I’m back with my second wreath of the season, and so excited to share it with all of you today.

It’s fairly similar to the tulip grapevine wreath I shared with all of you last week, but there’s a reason for that.  I’ve decided that I need to be more consistent with our decor and colors.  Too many times I choose colors for holidays that seem to be appropriate for the “season” yet they aren’t necessarily appropriate for the rest of our decor.  So in keeping with the red pop of color that I’m trying to maintain on our first floor, I made this beauty.

To make your own, you’ll need:

grapevine wreath

red polka dot burlap ribbon

2-3 bunches of red flowers

decorative floral pin

wire cutters

To start, I wrapped the burlap around the wreath and tucked the two ends tightly into the wreath.  No pins or wire required!

After the ribbon was wrapped, I tucked some pretty red floral stems behind either side of each piece of ribbon.  I used my wire cutters to cut the flowers from the bunch.

And I even had some pretty red tulips left over from my tulip & grapevine wreath, so I made a small bouquet, wrapped the stems with the polka dotted burlap ribbon and secured it with a pretty floral pin I had in my craft closet.

I attached the bouquet to the left side of the wreath, and soon had this beauty…

Easy 5 Minute Pen Tins

Before you read any further, head to Target and check out their Dollar Spot.  They’ve got super cute tin buckets right now that are perfect for storing writing supplies {pens, pencils, markers, etc…}.  There are tons of colors and sizes and some come with or without handles.  Once you’ve found the tins you love, you’re all ready to make this easy 5 minute craft.

All you’ll need are:

a couple of cute tins

vinyl chalkboard labels

chalk marker

markers and pens to fill up your tins

I already had everything I needed for this project except the tins.  You could totally use a cutting machine such as the Cricut Exlore to cut your own cute chalkboard labels, but I already had these ones and have been trying the “use what I’ve got” method of crafting.

All you have to do is stick the labels on where you’d like them on the tins…

Then use the chalk marker to label them.  LOVE chalk markers!  I use them for my weekly photos of Henry as well.  They write beautifully and don’t erase or rub off without a damp paper towel.

Once they were labeled, I added my pens and markers and set them out on the desk in my office!

I simply love them, and the fact that I can just erase and re-write a new label if I need to is totally awesome in my opinion!

Tulip & Grapevine Wreath

Tulip & Grapevine Wreath

One of my most favorite things to make are wreaths.  That’s why I can’t believe it’s been since Christmas that I’ve made one!  I take that back.  I guess I can believe it, because things have been busy around here.

Over the weekend I had a chance to make not one, but two brand new grapevine wreaths, and I’m so excited to share the first one with you all today.

This tulip & grapevine wreath is a perfect and fresh wreath to create this Spring from www.waittilyourfathergetshome.com #wreath #grapevine #tulips #spring

You only need a few things to make a tulip & grapevine wreath:

4-5 bunches of red tulips

grapevine wreath

wire cutters

red polka dot burlap ribbon

The BEST part about using a grapevine wreath?!  You can easily re-use them for each wreath you create.

To make the wreath, I clipped each tulip from the bunch using my wire cutters.  Once a bunch was entirely clipped, I slid the tulips into the grapevine wreath, all going the same direction around the wreath.

And to hang the wreath, I looped some cute red polka dot burlap ribbon around the top of the wreath and hung it over my pantry door.  There is a command hook stuck upside down on the inside of my pantry door {a trick I learned from my friend Jill from Create.Craft.Love}.

I love it!  It adds the perfect pop of color in our kitchen.  Having a wreath hanging inside always makes me happy.
