Yarn Trees!

Made these out of wrapping paper stuffed with a little batting to make them stiff. Wrapped them with yarn and added some ornaments from the target $1 ornament bins and some handmade burlap flowers.
I put them in some decorative urns I had laying around unused and added a bow. I want to make a third in an olive green...guess i need to hit the $1 bins for another trio or ornaments.

Ew to New #23

good will $2 mirror...sticker and chipboard letters, a little sanding, some red and white spray paint...

found these really cool laser cut frames at michaels...added some garland, yarn, and burlap.
I really enjoy making burlap flowers. super easy and even though the material is bulky and messy, it's rather forgiving when you hot glue it. I like!

sweet gomey

loaded instagram onto new phone. forgot I even had it on old one actually. but I remember after using it yesterday n this morning that I like it.

also, Owen is really liking the fact that he can create things at school. he melts down when things don't go his way, but he is really enjoying K. and he has a knack for filling up empty spaces, whether it be cabinets or bare walls.
