$5 Craft Challenge • Winter Edition

Laser cut frame and word create with red velver scrapbook paper from Michaels
 I found all of my items at Michaels. These laser cut wood are beautiful.
Laser cut frame: original $2.99 on sale $1.50
Laser cut Word: original $1.99 on sale $1.00
Specialty Scrapbook paper: original $1.99 on sale $1.00

These are items I already had, there was no need to purchase anything new.
I did prime the wood cuts with white paint (3 coats).
I measured out the inside of the frame, then drew out the
dimensions on the back of the velvet scrapbook paper.  
I use the craftsmart paint pens from Michaels to touch up and brighten the colors.
I used Elmer's glue to mount the scrapbook paper and
hot glue to glue onto the frame.

YouTube inspired Owl Pillows

My sister sent my mom material and wanted to do something with them. I found a few no sew owl pillow DIYs on YouTube and decided to give them a try. These are my "UGLY" Owl Pillows. I think they turned out cute.
What you'll need: 
  • Material of your choice
  • Felt to match the material
  • Marker or chalk
  • Paper for your template
  • Hot glue and hot glue gun
 Owl pattern made out of newprint paper 
1 - I folded the paper in half, drew out my owl on one side, then cut out the template, drew the wing on the other side.
2 - placed the template on top of the fabric and used chalk to out lin.
 2 owl shape apple print cut material 
3rd - cut out 2 pieces.
owl wing template and green felt 
4. cut out the wing from the owl template and made two wings with the felt fabric. 
5. You can create the eyes at the size you want, I used the bottom of mugs.
Created a small triangle using the green felt material.
Hot glue gun with apple material cut out in the shape of an owl
6. Face the outside fabric towards each other, hot glue together the edges all around, leaving an opening for the pillow stuffing.

Dollar Tree Valentine Flower Arrangement

Pink is still one of my favorite colors, pink roses are a favorite of mine. It was time to change out my flower arrangement for 2015 and a few items from Dollar Tree provided the look I wanted.

Arrangement: 1 bunch of pink flowers and 1 bunch of glitter hearts from the Dollar Tree.
I clipped each flower and heart from their bunches and arranged them in a frosted glass candle holder.
