Do it yourself Christmas Holiday Wreath Craft

 I really wanted a wreath for my door, one of those full, green ones with ornaments on it.  While I was at hobby lobby, I saw a few that I really liked. Then I saw the prices: $109. 00 for a decorated wreath. WOW! Even with the 50% off sale, the wreath STILL would have cost over $50.00. That was WAY more than I wanted to spend. Since I didn't want to spend so much money, and making crafts is such a fun hobby, I decided to make my own.  Final cost was just under $25, plus I had a lot of fun putting it together.  I think it turned out really pretty.

First I started with a 30" plain green wreath that I got at hobby lobby. Origional cost was 24.99, but at 50% off it was $12.00

 I bought 8 decorative picks  with forest greenery, to help fill out the wreath a little.
I also chose different sizes, to give the wreath some dimension. The picks were also 50% off at hobby lobby.

I played around with the positions of the picks, until I found the look I wanted. Then I glued them on with a hot glue gun.

 Then I took some ornaments that I already had and positioned those along the wreath, then hot glued them in place.

 I bought two of these berry branch picks to fill in the spaces a little. 

I broke each little berry stem off the main branch, and glued them in the places that needed a little something. Then I hung a ribbon from the back of the wreath.

I am not that great at photography. :) This wreath looks WAY prettier in real life. I couldn't believe how EASY it was, and it only took me about 30 minutes to make. I hope if you don't have a cute Christmas holiday wreath, you can see how easy it is to craft one. The possibilities are ENDLESS, you can make it as simple or extravagant as you want. So go have fun, and do some crafting.

Little girl Hairstyle tutorial #7 Knot hair do

This is one of my favorite hair styles I have done on C so far.  I just love all the different textures, with the braids,  and the knots, and the poofy ponytail in the back.  Don't worry I know it looks complicated, but if you follow the steps you will see it is really easy!
Part the hair across the front of the head, like in the picture to the left. Then dutch braid, the hair down to the ear.
then make a part from the tip of the left ear to the tip of the right ear  and make 5 pony tails with the remaining hair on top of head up to the part you just made. Tuck the tail of the dutch braid into your first pony tail.
Tie each ponytail into a knot. Demonstrated in the picture on the left. Once all the ponytails have been tied into knots. take the tails, and pull them into a single ponytail at the back of the head.

Backcomb the ponytail Place bobby pins underneath the  ponytail to make it stand up a little.

Roll the remaining hair up to meet the ponytail and secure with bobby pins. ( …

This style is simple, and easy. Perfect for those little toddlers, who wont hold still long. Plus it gets the hair out of their eyes, which is always a plus. The great thing is this style is for everyone! I have done my hair like this as well. It is so quick, but it looks super nice.
Part hair on the side of head.

Braid from forehead towards the back of head and secure. I use elastic bands in my girls hair, and bobby pins in my own.

Curl the rest of hair with a curling iron.

Finish with a cute bow.

Cute easy skirt tutorial!

Is it just my girls, that really LOVE skirts? Most days my two year old, C. E , refuses to wear anything that isn't either a skirt or a dress. Lucky for her I am constantly making skirts and dresses. :) I haven't even purchased her any pants for a year. ( well I did purchase one pair, but it had a skirt attached so it doesn't count.) Each day after I get C. E dressed, ( in either a skirt or a dress) she always says "I wear dress lite (like) a pincess (princess)."  It always makes me giggle a little. So this is my latest skirt. It is inspired by that pre shirred fabric you can get at any fabric store. they didn't have any made from corduroy  though, so I decided to make my own. If you can sew a straight line, then you can make this skirt! It is the easiest skirt I have ever made, and I have made A LOT of skirts,  It is made with grey corduroy, so it will hold up well, and the interchangeable sash will ensure it will go with anything.  C loves wearing this skir…
