Hello everyone! Here are some of the things I have been working on lately.
This year we needed a new treat plate to set out for Santa. So I got out my trusty Silhouette and cut some letters, this cute little tree and stars and now we have a cute plate for Santa's treats.
I needed more Thanksgiving decorations, so I made this.
This plate is meant as a decoration only, as it's made with vinyl, and I don't know how I would wash it with out taking the vinyl off.
It looks pretty cute on our piano though
and the candy corn is for all we are thankful for......the kids loved that!
These were fun to create.
I saw some like these online somewhere and thought I could make those.
Do you want to know how to make these cuties.....
1. Cut your ribbon (grosgrain) in the shape of petals and heat seal the edges.
To heat seal; just lightly run a lighter or flame around edges until they are sealed.
Careful not to burn them.
2. Take a needle and thread and sew along the bottom of each pedal.
3. When you sew all of the bottoms, connect to the first pedal and sew it up really well.
Next, you end up with poinsetta's like these.
Now you can decorate them however you like and put them on a ribbon covered clip or a pin for the brooch.
Have fun making these and have a great holiday season
and stay tuned for some other things I'm working on!
