DIY Projects I have made!

While looking through Pinterest, I decided to attempt to make a wreath for my door.  I was very excited about this wreath.  It is in my favorite three colors (black, white, and pink) :)

 The only materials that you need to make this wreath is:
Foam wreath
Ribbon of choice
Straight Pins and Straight Pins with pearls
1. Pin the beginning of the ribbon to the foam wreath.
2. Start wrapping the ribbon around the circle.  I wrapped mine twice to make sure that I could not see through it. After you are finished wrapping it around pin the end down in both corners.
3. Grab the felt and cut out lots of circles.  It does not matter the size or if the circles are perfectly cut.
4. Fold the circle in half and then fold it again in half (should look like a triangle) Pin the folded point to the wreath. Fluff out the end to create the look of a flower.  Keep pinning more felt until you are happy with the look.
5. Take the pearl straight pins and randomly place them in the felt to give the look of the center of the flower.  This adds extra details. 
6. Cut ribbon to make a handle and use straight pins to pin in place.
7. Hang on door

Wedding Sign for Ring Bearer to Carry
I still have to drill holes in the corners to add the ribbon so that our ring bearer will be able to carry it. 

Here are the steps to making this sign.

Step 1:
Buy a board, I bought mine from Hobby Lobby, and paint it.  I painted mine white. 
Step 2:
I added damask boarder at the top and bottom of the board by using stickers I found at Hobby Lobby.
Step 3:
Start writing the message with paint.  I wrote mine out with pencil first.
Step 4: 
Add the flowers for details.
Step 5: 
Drill Holes in the corners to place Ribbon through so it can be carried.
