Shabby Chic Wreath with hand made flowers

Hello Everyone,

I hope that you are all well and not missing Lovely Hanglar or Sweet Magnolia Challenge too much!

Just popping on to show you my shabby chic wreath that I have made for my bedroom. 

I originally intended to make a Christmas wreath, but then changed  my mind, as some of you already know I make fabric flowers and the two on this wreath, I really didnt want to sell in my Etsy shop.
 I have seen wreaths like these over the years and thought that I would give it a go.



I mainly wanted to keep it neutral colours, with just a hint of pink.

It was actually a bit more tricky than I anticipated, but I am pleased with the end result.

Thanks for stopping by today, have a pleasant week.

Vintage Bauble, Card/Bag Topper or Gift Tag


Happy Sunday Everyone

I have seen these style of toppers around for many 
years and decided to try my hand at making a few.

This is my first completed one and I have another few, which are part done, which I will pop back with when they are finished.

I am quite pleased with how it tuned out.


They are pretty simple to do, I die my circles to 10cm, from 4 layers of thick white card.

10cm is a good size for a variety of uses, i.e. card or gift bag topper, gift tag or simply a bauble for Christmas.


I wrapped the natural hemp twine to give me a frame and die cut lots of lovely wintery leaves from my DPs, the scrapinec baubles are also tied with the same twine. 


The cones have been dry brushed with gesso and I made the poinsettia's from foamiran, the wooden Merry Christmas is from my crafty stash.  


I wanted to bring out the green in the colour scheme, so added the seam binding bow. 


There is also a little rusty bell at the top of the baubles and there are several dabs of gold glitter glue to add a little Christmas sparkle.

Today is our last challenge at Lovely Hanglar or Sweet Magnolia, we would love you to pop over and join in and you have a chance to win a voucher from lovely Tracy at Noor Design UK!!!

Have a lovely day, Crafty Cuddles
