Embroidery Hoop Pumpkins!

September 21st, 2012 | by Bonnie Getchell

Fall decorations have hit stores! While it's tempting to buy those cute plastic pumpkins and other decorations from big box stores, they are far from eco-friendly. Instead, use what you have in your craft stash! I had embroidery hoops and orange fabric, so I decided to transform them into my own precious pumpkins!

I saw an adorable frame idea on Pinterest from Leah at The Way We Are. Leah glued magnets to the back of picture frames in order to display her daughter's artwork in an organized and beautiful way. I had several cardboard boxes in my craft stash, so I decided to repurpose them into my own fridge frames!


How To: Cardboard & Toilet Paper Roll Tree

January 20th, 2012 | by Bonnie Getchell

This week I wanted to create a project that brought the outside, in (because it's too cold to go outside right now!). I looked around my house for inspiration and I found a cardboard box and toilet paper rolls. I've done projects with toilet paper rolls before like the Toilet Paper Roll Christmas Lights and the Christmas "Candle" Cover, but I wanted to make something more natural-looking. Drawing inspiration from a fall project I did on my personal blog, I created a Cardboard and Toilet Paper Roll Tree!

My mom is an elementary school teacher and has developed an obsession with cool peace signs for her classroom. When discussing a how to project this week, she asked me to make her a peace sign out of recycled materials. You guys know I'm all about fun wall art like the Laundry Cup Wall Art, Newspaper Art, and Burlap Chevron Paintings-- so I was totally pumped to take on this challenge! After searching around the house, I grabbed a cardboard box they had left over from moving and a bag of pop-tops that my grandma had collected. Here's how to make your very own pop top peace sign!
