Spring Flower Vase Craft

I saw this craft at Michaels Store and loved it.  You could buy it already made and it was so cute that I decided that I was going to make it myself and save a few dollars.  It was easy to make and I really only paid a few dollars for the complete project.

Fall Wreath #crafts

Fall Wreath

I have wanted to start a craft section and do at least one craft per week, but that is not happening.  So I will just post as I get some crafts done.
I have been very late this year in getting my Fall decorations up.  I usually get them up before Canadian Thanksgiving but as you can tell that was last weekend and I am still working on it.  I wanted to make a wreath to put on the front door but that failed too.  I couldn't find any bigger grapevine wreaths anyway in the are and I am not sure where I put the extras I had.  Maybe I used them all.
Anyways there are only a few place I can find craft supplies ~ Walmart, Shopko and the Dollar Store.  I started at the Dollar Store and most of the material I found was from there.. So now I have a Dollar Store Craft.

What I used:

1 inch letters "FALL"
small scrap of scrapbooking paper
6 inch wreath
leaves (felt) ~ I used 8
couple of plastic flowers
glue- I used Tacky Glue and a Glue Gun.

I first glued the letters to the back of the scrapbook paper.  Once dried I cut them out ~ this was the hardest part.  Glue leaves to one side of the wreath.  Arrange flowers and glue to the other side.  Glue 'FALL' close to the top of the wreath.  Make a bow and attach to the bottom... And you are done.
Simple, Easy and Cheap...   This maybe cost about $2.50 total with lots left over to make more and I think it looks wonderful on my fireplace.

Bird Bath and Feeder

I know that you are probably thinking.... Why is she posting about a bird feeder at this time of year.  The birds are now thinking of flying south and the snow will be falling.  Why oh Why would I write about making a bird feeder.  Well, it is because I just got time to make it.  I did buy the material as soon as Cynthia from Feeding Big brought over this idea to my facebook page. Hers is a butterfly feeder but I decided to make mine into a birdbath and feeder.  Head over to her page for the directions to make her feeder.  I only took pictures of what I used and the end product.
