Hello there !!

I am back – I can’t believe I left this blog orphaned for such a long time now. This last year was marked by the construction and move-in into our new home, so there were lots of tasks not involving any crafting;

But now I am enjoying the advent season all the more, doing lots of crafts for decorating new spaces.

The canvas wreath was inspired by Alisa Burke. I left out the sewing though and since I didn’t have such colorful buttons on hand, I used waxed beads instead. This also saved the hot glueing step – I just pinned the beads down to the underlying styrofoam ring.

And major bling is caused by the sequined styrofoam ring. This one was a lot of work, but done while sitting in front of the TV it passed in no time. The wreath is covered with literally thousands of pink and red seqins and 4 mm orange, red and pink beads.

So, hope you enjoyed my little decorations tour and wish you a warm and cosy season!
