The weather here in South Bend has been a little unpredictable the last couple of days, so after working this morning, I decided to stay home this afternoon and craft until it was time to get the kids from school. Instead of making cards, I decided to make a few home decorating ideas that I have had floating around for a while. I had most of the stuff on hand, so it was easy to put together.
The first is a coffee filter wreath. I saw this posted on another blog a while back and have had the stuff to make it, just never got to it. It was so simple and turned out great! I think next time I make it, I will use the brown coffee filters for a different look. I decided to hang it from my distressed window that I redid a couple of weeks ago. Now I just need to get it hung on the wall.
Here is the side view that my daughter took, she did a great job!
I also made this little tree. I purchased everything half price at Hobby Lobby, gotta love that. It was so simple to put together. I actually made two but have not decided where I am going to put them yet.
Lastly, I made these simple yarn trees. I purchased the styrofoam cones at the dollar store and the yarn was 50% off at Michael's. Can't beat that. A little hot glue and I was good to go. I will have to find a spot for these as well. I have a couple of more projects that I need to complete, then I am actually going to start decorating downstairs. Since I finished up the majority of the unpacking earlier this week, it will be easy and fun now that everything is out. More on that later! I like how you can see how snowy the backyard is in the reflection of the mirror! Enjoy!
