Heather’s Simulated Window With Wreath and Lantern

This is my friend Heather’s beautiful wreath she made with a picture frame simulated window as a lovely background.

It looks like Heather has already decorated for Easter. This will look lovely all spring. 

She’s working on some shabby chic eggs she’ll share once they’re completed. Makes you want to get crafting, doesn’t it?

Here are the materials, Heather has used:

  • 12 (5 inch by 7 inch) frames from Dollar Tree
  • wire wreath from WalMart
  • 3 spools of lace burlap from WalMart
  • roses from 99 Cent Store

The Lantern is quite a lovely statement on the hearth of the fireplace.

It was made from:

  • 5 (9 inch by 9 inch) picture frames from DollarTree
  • 4 pothos vines from Dollar Tree

With the candles, it definitely makes a statement.

Well, I hope Heather doesn’t mind that I had to cut up her picture, but I thought it necessary to get a good look at the wonderful crafts she created from picture frames.

This lantern would definitely work out well for all seasons.

I never would have thought of making such love things from picture frames. That’s why I have clever friends who get inspired while shopping for bargains.

I’m looking forward to seeing Heather’s shabby chic eggs.

I’m going shopping for picture frames, flowers and other craft items to see if I can create something as lovely.

When it comes to great prices, you can’t beat the bargains at the places Heather shops.

My special thanks to Heather for sharing her delightfully lovely creativity with us.

Fall Candle Jars

It wonderful to get into fall and all the projects you can do to decorate your home.

These fall candle jars are easy to make and fun to use.fallcandleholder

You can use any jars you’ve saved or use mason jars. You’ll need Mod Podge and fake leaves. I like the fake fall leaves because they absorb the Mod Podge.

You apply the leaves to the outside of the jar and add a rafia ribbon to give it that finished look.

I started this project in the center and brushed Mod Podge to the outside center of the jar. Then I positioned a leaf and brushed Mod Podge over it. I overlapped the leaves. Be sure to have Mod Podge on both sides of the leaves.

This is a fun project the kids may enjoy, too.

You can use a tea candle inside the jar or an electric candle light. The light should glow through the leaves. I don’t cover every inch of the jar. I like having some of the glass showing. Make your however you like.

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you found this fall candle jar interesting enough to make.
