1  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Fabric Rose Necklace on: March 19, 2011 02:29:47 PM
I found this recycled rose wreath tutorial http://alisaburke.blogspot.com/2010/02/recycled-roses-wreath-tutorial_24.html and decided to try my own roses! But instead I made a necklace. I just rolled some white fabric, glued with a hot glue gun, and then glued felt to the back. I used this great t-shirt type of fabric that rolls (I cut it off of a scarf I have) and used it for tying all together. Anyways, it's really easy and these can be made out of anything and used for anything!! Get creative! =)

2  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Feathery Tree Branch Wall Hanging(LOTSO PICS) on: March 18, 2011 01:34:18 PM
My sister has been obsessing over tree branches being decorated for hanging. So I of course have a lot of crafting stuff and feathers. I decided to create her something like what she wants but my way. Good thing her birthday is coming up so this can be a present! Anyways, I just drilled holes in the branch I found, and tied random lengths of jute string and began to fasten all kinds of things to hang on there. Feather clusters, random ties of colored leathers, chandelier crystals, felt circles, a stuffed fabric bird, leftover pendants... Anything I could find I have put on it!  Smiley Comments?!




Birdy!


Did I mention shells?


I love this picture.




HUGE old safety pin. A bunch of antique keys came on it.



3  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Sticks and owls, a wreath for any occasion! on: December 06, 2010 11:30:01 AM
So I wanted to make a wreath for Christmas time and ended up with a wreath that can go for any occasion really. I got the sticks from my boyfriends backyard and just hot glued them all together to form the wreath. I then wrapped some jute string around in just a random way for looks. I made the little owl guys and voila! The bow is a scrap piece of fabric i just threw together because I like the color. So I hope this gives ideas! It is really easy, free, and would make a great gift for anyone. And the best thing, I can remove the owls and bow and add anything for any season!!


Sticks, with nothing on it yet.

4  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Completed Projects / my peyote stitching bead earrings on: July 04, 2008 08:00:40 AM
Okay so I decided to try my hand at this peyote stitch because I really love these kinds of earrings. So this first pair is my absolute favorite.. I usually wear browns and not much color but these make me feel so alive!!

They were the second pair I have ever made so I was so proud. But some strands fell off because I used really bad string, now I am using really good bead string. You can't really tell though when I am wearing them. Oh and the beads at the bottom were from a very old necklace that broke. And the beads are so amazing that I thought, Okay I have to use these RIGHT NOW!

These earrings I made with these really good Japanese seed beads that were kind of expensive but they really look so pretty and uniform. I used a random pattern I found by google searching!!




Let me know what you think!!
