Felt Wreath

I enjoy making wreaths and thinking of different ways to decorate my door. I decided to make a felt wreath because I had a bunch of felt sheets left over from an earlier project. I am beginning to decorate my house for the holidays, and I feel that this wreath will be an excellent way to make my door look festive and beautiful.

I used the following supplies:

  • 12 in. foam wreath
  • Straight pins
  • Felt sheets
  • Scissors
  • Pearl beads

I started off by cutting the felt into petal shapes.

Next, I folded the felt petals into circular shapes and pinned them around the wreath.

Finally, I tied a strand of pearl beads around the top of the wreath so I could hang it from my door.

DIY Rolling Storage Crate

My family of three lives in a townhouse, so I try to keep our small space as organized as possible. We spend a lot of time in the living room, and I wanted to make something that would help keep some of the books, magazines, and toys off the floor. I saw a few rolling crates online that I loved but couldn’t afford to buy, so I decided to make one of my own.

I used the following supplies:

  • 12″ x 9.75″ x 18″ unfinished wood crate
  • 4 caster wheels
  • 16 small screws
  • wood glue
  • 8.5″ wood letter
  • Rust-Oleum Hammered Spray Paint (Gold)
  • Drill

 

I started off by spray painting the crate and letter.

I waited a few hours for the letter and crate to dry, then I glued the letter onto the crate with wood glue.

I asked my husband to drill the screws and wheels because he is much better at using power tools than I am.
