Eggs with washi tape

Make use of those spare washi tapes in your drawer. I have plenty in mine so I won’t have any reason not to be able to decorate our Easter Eggs with fancy, colourful, patterned and even plain coloured washi tapes.

DIY Fall Wreaths

diyfallwreaths
 

Can you feel the crisp and cool air now? It’s officially autumn! And it’s a beautiful time to enjoy the great outdoors and the ever changing colours of nature’s foliage. It is fun to dress up our doors too with budget Fall wreath decors you can make.

Below are easy DIY Fall wreaths you and your family can make to save money on decors. Materials are everywhere and if you are crafty, you can use some of your craft supplies too. All you need is a big imagination, some wires or even cardboards to use as base for the wreath, twines, fine wires, glue gun, glue and some glitters to add spark! Now, the rest of the materials can be found around you.

Creating the base of the wreath is easy. If you prefer to use a wire, make sure you add a mesh so it is easy to attach the leaves and other decorations. I would prefer to use a thick cardboard so I can just punch holes on the base directly rather than cutting a wire mesh to attach to the wire base. Here’s a tip when you can’t find a wire deco mesh – use an old metal clothes hanger.

Decide on how large you want your wreath to be. You can be playful by going out of the normal circular wreaths. You can make a square, rectangular, oblong or any shaped wreath base you like.

Cut out your base to the desired dimension and start layering. I would normally not glue or attach the decorations right away. I will just practice on layering and placing them around the base to give me an idea of how it would look like when done.  You can start attaching when you are satisfied with the mock wreath.

If you’re using lots of dried leaves and other natural materials, you can use small amount of glue gun on the base of the leaf. Just dot the hot glue and be careful not to burn yourself. You can use hot glue on twigs and other small fruits like berries.  Use a small wire to attach the dried pine cones or small pumpkins onto the wreath.

If you will use cloth/fabric or burlap as layers for your wreath, then a wire mesh is best to use for the base so you can intertwine the fabric between the wires.

Add glue glitters on the leaves to make them look sparkly.

Complete the finishing touch with bows.

I Need More Craft Supplies

I have been very busy the past few makes creating handmade cards and I didn’t realize that I have made more than 30 already and most of them do not have any envelopes. The supplies here in Dubai are rather costly because most of them came from Europe and the US so shipping was definitely integrated to the cost. However, I may have to check out for envelope prints too to incorporate my logo trademark. I hope to find one reasonable priced printers soon so I can start on the next step of my small time handmade cards business.

I have to get more supplies like card stock, patterned papers, embellishments, ribbons and laces, stamps and inks. I also have to buy some designer’s commercial licence to make sure that I am not infringing on someone’s copyright rules.
