WorkWith Alum Foil Roll: Sweet Daisy Wall Hanger

Backstory: More recently, I’ve been saving the narrow/long rolls that Aluminum Foil is on because I was convinced that I could make some sort of craft with them. One of the ideas that came to mind was to make some sort of decorative mobile by workingwith the roll but truthfully said, as I completed the project, this idea changed into a wall-hanger.

What I Used:

1 Aluminum Foil Rolls ( all foil has been taken off*)

White & Yellow Ribbon

White Paint

Cardstock paper ( for the making the daisy cut-out flowers)

How It’s Done:

Step 1) Take your aluminum foil roll and paint them the color that you prefer, let them dry completely before moving forward.

Step 2) Take a long piece of ribbon and pull through the roll, you should now have ribbon protruding from each side. Just pull both sides up so that you can tie the top as this is how your daisy hanger will hang…

Step 3) Now it’s time to make your daisy flowers, I just used a cut-out template. Once you cut them out, use a hole puncher or simply a pair of scissors to make a small hole in the center. * You will slightly fold your daises in half so that they will be facing downward when hanging.

Step 4) Cut off individual pieces of ribbon and insert each piece into the center of your daisy ( make sure it is well inside of the hole so the flower stays) and tie the ribbon that is now on the inside of your daisy into a small knot.

Step 5) Take your ribbon with daisies and one by one, tie them onto the roll. *It is optional as to how many daisies you want on each ribbon strand and it is also up to you as to how you want your daisies to be arranged ( ascending, descending, up-down-up and so on.

Tadaa ♥♥♥

This little craft project did not turn out the way I had initially thought but it became something even more than I thought and personally, I think it’s adorable. What do you think ?

Until next time, ♥ One of the greatest limitation of today is not that we do not have but that we do not see ♥

WorkWith Tulle: Sweet Baby Garland

Backstory: I do not know what has been up with my computer/Firefox browser lately but oddly enough after I reverted this post back to a draft, all of it’s content was erased. But, there’s no stopping this crafter…even if I need a day to calm down from the agony of having to redo a post. Anyhoo, today I wanted to share with you guys how I decided to workwith tulle to make a quick & easy bow garland. I do not know about you but it seems that 2016 going into 2017 is a year for babies.

What I Used:

Tulle ( It is important to invest in the Tulle or else the ends might easily fray…this is what I had a problem with).

Scissors

Ribbon/String

How It’s Done:

Step 1) Take your tulle and measure out two pieces of tulle about the size of your hand ( longer or shorter just depends on how big you want your bows to be). Overlap the two pieces…

Step 2) Fold your tulle together to be small in width and then make the cure symbol with your tulle.

Step 3) Bring the top (1)/middle of your loop down to the center of your ribbon(2).*You should now see the bow

Step 4) Take strand 3 and wrap under your bow, then take strand 4 of your ribbon and wrap over and tie them both into a knot like your tying your shoes.

Step 5) Once you have made several bows now, take your ribbon and weave it in and out of the top of your bows until your garland is as long as you would like. *I weaved my ribbon in the top of my bow, under the strands and up into the other side.

And you are done!
