Summer Wreath with Burlap

The springtime is a perfect time for me to make a new wreath. I made one for the summer that matches my patio furniture cushions. I really love the way it turned out and most of the fabric was leftover from making the cushions!!

Want to make a similar wreath? Here is what you will need.
-Wreath form- mine was 12"
-3" Fabric Strips to cover main part of wreath
-3" fabric strips of burlap
-Straight Pins
-Flowers for embellishment
-Hot Glue Gun

Start wrapping your main fabric around the form, using straight pins to hold into place.

Wrap until about 3/4 of the wreath is covered. Then wrap about 1/4 of wreath with burlap.

Using hot glue gun attach the embellishments. I used a small piece of felt to glue the flowers to.

Cut ribbon to length, tie bow, and hang!

I will be linking to some of these parties!
Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!

Pad Thai for Beginners- New Food Friday

I have always been a big fan of pad thai- I love all the noodley goodness, the sauce, the sprouts and the sriracha! But buying pad thai all the time can get pretty expensive. Several months ago I found this "recipe" that is more like an in detail explanation of how to make authentic Pad Thai.

It took me almost 2 months to procure the ingredients and build up the courage to try it myself.

I followed the procedure close to what Chez Pim recommended, but there are a lot of options of ingredients listed.

What I used with mine was carrots, onions, garlic, shrimp, sprouts, rice noodles, one egg and the sauce as recommended by the recipe. 

It turned out delicious and I have made it a couple times since then!

So I dare you- give it a try! You will be glad you did!!

Thanks for stopping by!

Quick Summer Maxi Dress Upcycle

This is the project that I did for Project Recycled, but got voted out before it was shown on the contest. I altered this maxi dress to something I will like to wear.

I actually purchased this dress from the Salvation Army the week before I found out I was going to be on Project Recycled. I spent $4.75 on it.

It was about 8 sizes too big but I love the color, pattern and the lightweight fabric.
I saw the potential in it.

So I took in the sides and viola- a summery maxi dress for me.
So simple yet so cute- very satisfying results!
