1  Tree Wall hanging made of scrap fabric yo-yos, an old sweater and buttons! in Needlework: Completed Projects by Tristan14831 on: May 17, 2011 11:28:54 AM
I started making this a year ago, and this project has taken forever to finish! not because it's hard, but because sometimes I get lazy. so here's a picture!

the yo-yos are from the remnant pile at walmart, the trunk is made from a sweater that belonged to Daddy, and the buttons came from my husband's grandmother's stash. I also embroidered our initials into the tree. Here's a few more pictures closer up:

what do y'all think? this was my first project like this!

2  Black bird key ring holder! in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by Tristan14831 on: April 29, 2011 08:26:35 AM
My new husband and I can't keep up with our keys to save our lives. I decided to make something pretty to hang by the door that way we could keep up with them!

I asked Jared to cut out the rectangle and a couple of other shapes for other projects and I sanded them down and started to paint them.

I used red and blue since those are the colors of my kitchen and I attempted a crackle finish, which didn't really turn out the way I wanted, but I still liked it, so i went with it! I found a bird shape online and cut it out and traced it. After all the paint dried, I attached hangers in the back and hammered in three masonry nails to be the hangers and it was done!


let me know what y'all think!

3  upcycled window frame! *updated with new pics* in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by Tristan14831 on: February 07, 2011 09:22:20 AM
Hi! I love windows and I have several sitting around, so when my fiance and I needed a way to display our engagement photos this seemed like a good idea. So here it is.

There is another window painted the same color, but we don't have photos in it yet!

*EDIT* Here are both frames on the wall!

4  I heart trees. in Glass Crafts: Completed Projects by Tristan14831 on: September 17, 2010 02:52:24 PM
I really like trees and I like mosaics, so it seemed like a logical thing to do.

Here's the window pregrout.

I'm super serious when I grout.

My sister liked this picture of the nasty grout water. She just got a new camera, so I'm including it!

and finally the finished product!

Comments and criticism are always appreciated!

5  my brooch bouquet!!! in Weddings and Bridal Showers by Tristan14831 on: August 03, 2010 09:46:57 PM
Hi! I'm working on my wedding that's taking place 03.12.11 and I'm making a crapton of stuff. (Here's some of my other projects: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=348478.msg4061869#msg4061869)

The thing I've been most excited about is this bouquet! I'm actually more excited about this than my wedding dress lol. The only thing that isn't finished about it is it's not wrapped in any fabric. Once my dress is altered, I'm planning on wrapping the scraps around the stem. Right now, its covered in black duct tape, which isn't very festive. here's some pictures!

View from the top

With lovely duct tape covering up several pounds of floral wire.

This is the side i'm going to have in front!

All in all, this bouquet weighs 3.2 lbs, which is actually lighter than I thought it would be! thanks for looking!

6  Mosaic heart window! in Glass Crafts: Completed Projects by Tristan14831 on: July 06, 2010 07:41:02 PM
 Hi! This was a free window that was given to me by the lovely Jess Wal and I decided to make this out of it. I'm going to hang it in the kitchen. I was going to hang the other window I made in the kitchen (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=343244.msg3989427#msg3989427) but decided I liked this one better!
So here's the pics!

I started with this.

I ran out of globs and glue, so I had to wait a while, but here's a pic of it pre-grout.

and finally post grout!

For more info and such, check out my blog post about it!

Let me know what you think, please!

7  When you're broke, you've got to get creative: the story of our wedding (so far) in Weddings and Bridal Showers by Tristan14831 on: May 24, 2010 09:05:18 PM
Howdy! My wedding is going to be March 12, 2011. We've had plenty of time to plan, but we're broke, so I've been crafty! We're still looking for a place to have the wedding (that in itself is a long and awful story involving the perfect location being indefinitely closed due to really old wiring) so until we figure that out, we're kind of stuck involving most of the crafty projects I had in mind. To be productive, I've been working on the bouquets for my bridesmaids and Jared's groomslady.

After going over all the math, I discovered that it would be cheaper to make my own flowers over any other flower option, so I started lurking around the internet and found felt and button flowers.

My sister is going to be my maid of honor and she'll be wearing yellow. Her flowers are the ones with the blue bases and the rest of the girls will be in blue and carrying yellow. Here are some of my favorite flowers and one of all of them I've made together. I've got to make 105 flowers and i've got about 40 made. That makes about 15 flowers per bouquet.

I've got a little more info on my blog in this post:

and to see more flowers, check out my photobucket.

Any comments/criticism are wanted and appreciated!

8  felt flower corsage/boutonniere for friend's prom in Completed Projects by Tristan14831 on: May 18, 2010 08:59:04 AM
I couldn't figure out where this would go, so I'm putting it here!

My friend Whitney is going to prom with her awesome boyfriend Dallas. Her friends bought a ticket for Dallas to come all the way out to Georgia from Arizona, so this is a really big deal. She asked me if I could make some flowers for her corsage and his boutonniere. I made these thinking they would be interchangeable. I put pin backs on all of them so they could easily be pinned to either his jacket or her the elastic for the corsage band. Anyway, I made a few and plan on making a couple of more for her to choose from, so here are the ones I've finished so far.

and individual ones!

I'm not posting pictures of the backs because they look so bad! lol Hope you like them!

10  A microwave plate turned into a mosaic! in Glass Crafts: Completed Projects by Tristan14831 on: May 03, 2010 07:49:34 PM
Hi! I made this for my future mother-in-law's birthday. She likes trees, so I thought she'd like this. It was my first attempt at making a tree, so it actually looks more like a cupcake, but whatever. She liked it lol

Pre grout:

and post grout!
