Snowball Wreath

A wreath of puffy white pom-poms, reminiscent of snowballs, will last the entire winter season. Because it is made from just a few materials and has a simple color scheme, any child age 6 or older can make one with great success, or even a dozen to give as holiday gifts.

These are the things you will need for the project.

Look how pretty this metallic paint is! You can purchase them wherever Martha Stewart crafts are sold.

With a low-temperature hot-glue gun (or white glue, which takes longer to dry), attach about twenty-four 2-inch and fifteen 1-inch pompoms to the ring, alternating sizes as you go. Fill in the spaces with ten or so 1/2-inch pom-poms.

Isn’t it so pretty! I only used one size for my pom poms.

Grab some leaves in your yard and paint them with the Martha Stewart metallic paint. After I painted them I cut them ends to look pointed.

This reminds me of a big ole cloud. One in which I would LOVE to be laying on right about NOW! I can’t wait to see pictures of your wreath!

Dreaming of a fluffy pillow and a new gold Michael Kors watch,

Martha Stewart Countdown #42 Button Wreath Ornament

I think my favorite thing about CHRISTMAS is making crafts with my little one. We are super close and I want all of the little memories to stick. Like making a tree ornament. I had so much fun making this ornament and it is so pretty on my tree! I will always remember the itty bitty fingers that made this…

If you have colorful buttons laying around go get them and put them new use as Christmas ornaments. If you don’t have enough loose buttons, or the right colors, don’t worry — stores sell them by the bagful. Kids will enjoy this project because each wreath they make will be unique.

Tools and Materials

Needle-nose pliers or wire cutters
16-gauge copper wire, or 22-gauge green floral wire, cut to 9-inch lengths
72 buttons for each wreath
Scissors
Satin ribbon, 1/8 inch wide and 6 inches long
Seam binding for decorative bow

I just used some cheap little wire cutters for this project because the wire I am using is not hard to cut at all!

See! It’s just floral wire that you can get at walmart

Cut a piece of wire {as big as you want} and put a loop on the end

Next you want to grab a handful of buttons {yes.. I know I have a bandage clip in there} lol

Start stringing those babies

You can make the colors go in a certain order or do it like me… Whichever button you pick out of the bunch is the one that is next! I told ya, I don’t discriminate! lol

I know you are flipping out right now! You are like, OMG I love this button ma jiggy! Just think. You can make your babies do this every year and it would be such a great memory! I hope you enjoyed this craft and have fun making it!

Martha Stewart Countdown #38 Cornhusk Wreath

i feel it in my bones. -tegan and sara

It’s after midnight. I’m tired. I sometimes wonder if anyone realizes how hard it is “some” days to get crafts done. I have been blogging for a couple of years now and phew! I don’t think I EVER stayed up so late just trying to get a craft done! I’m sorry it’s so late but I told y’all I would get this craft up for ya! I hope you like it because it was so fun. OH… Did I mention I’m tired.

Thank you angels for providing me with Tegan and Sara, coke, Christmas tree cakes, and lot’s of good energy.  {{and Martha in my head pointing her finger at me}}… Teehee…Amelia, I miss you…

I used RIT dye. It never disappoints me! You can use whatever name brand you like for this craft. It really will not matter that much.

I just grabbed these babies at my local grocery store! You might have to ask because sometimes they are not easy to find!

You want to fill up a bowl with warm water. Put the dye in the water as the instructions say. I like to use powder because I feel like I have a little more control over it!

Put as much as you want in the bowl then put a plate on top. This holds everything down. The longer you keep everything submerged into the water the darker the corn husks’ will be.

Get a wreath made of straw. This baby was only 4 bucks! Can ya believe!

You will NEED floral pins!

Look how pretty these babies are! When you are ready to use them just take them out of the water and pat them dry. It’s SO easy to pull them into strips! It’s like MAGIC!

Join each of the ends together.

Secure down with a floral pin.

Look how pretty! It reminds me of the candy ribbons my Grandpaw used to give me when I was a little girl… Love you PP….

I am so happy with the way this turned out! It turned out SO awesome! I can’t wait to make a CHRISTMAS one! Have fun making this jaderbugs!

Sending you loads and loads of sleep that I want, your tired jaderbomb

Paper Umbrella Wreath

So it’s FRIDAY!!!! Wahooooo…  It totally had a blast doing this little craft and I know you will too!
I have alot of great and fun crafts coming up you little jaderbugs!!! I know it’s totally not “officially” summer yet but it’s JUNE and it’s HOT, RIGHT!!!!!
OH: remember if you make this wreath you can’t put it outside unless is covered or in a covered spot (sorta).  If you put it on your front door make sure it has some protection from the rain, if not you might want to put it in another place.  If the rain hits hit {{{at all}}} it will fall apart, because the umbrellas are made with paper.
They are great for a party!!!!!
Or just to celebrate the coming of a hot and glorious summer…
I hope you all enjoyed this craft!
Until next time:
peace.love.jaderbomb
