Craft it forward by Michaels–Spring Wreath

DID you know that Feb 17 is random act of kindness day?
wellllll…it is.
 and michaels store has really taken that to heart…
making a WHOLE week of it!
they generously sent me $100 gift card to buy stuff to make a craft for someone else…
Well I was all over that! we could make this a monthly thing michaels. me and you and crafts…true love forever.
I ended up grabbing all the stuff to make this gorgeous spring wreath with fun frame! spring floral wreath diy--with cute frame. perfect for your front door. Love the yellow and blue!

 

so here’s all the loot I’m donating to a silent auction…(thanks to Michaels of course)
I went into the store with no clue as to what I was making! the world was my oyster!!! I ended up leaving michaels with this loot…I still was unsure the direction i was going so i figured that whatever was left over could just go in a basket of craft goodies….so i just grabbed all the cuteness I could

First thing i made: a wreath! this giant wreath was only $9–and michaels had a 40% off coupon…so I got it for a steal of a deal!

painted the frame…laminated the paper behind the frame to withhold the weather if it’s put on a door…(I mean–it’s Idaho…and even though this a spring wreath…spring is COLD!)

I wrapped some bakers’s twine around the frame…and added some chip board letters for the HI! hot glued some real flowers and fabric flowers around the edge and folding in some strips of burlap..
and I had some of this mesh…and thought the randomness was fun and turned them into leaves!
I painted leaf shapes and cut them out

Fun little dimension added to it…

next up is a hair bow holder……

I LOVED these laser cut frames (went back and bought two more for my daughters room!)
just hot glued some chicken coop wire to the back….
I 100% adored these polka dot daisy’s (on sale 40% )
and michaels had this wall of hair crap just waiting for me….
(pretty sure angels were singing…just saying.) This wall was the only time I thought….100 bucks was not enough.  I wanted them ALLLLLLLLLLLL.
but I resisted the obsessive compulsive me and just grabbed a few…

i snipped off the stems and added a clip with hot glue…done and done.

but you can easily use this as a memo board….with clothespins
or to hold notes…or recipes or pictures…so cute in a kids room!
okay…last but not least….bought this cute little frame..
made some clip art for it (all the images are below!)

and just threw it in my basket for goodies (I cleaned house and started putting everything in the basket–but that GIANT pad of scrapbook paper (50% off thankyouverymuch) the cute pen, the flowers, the paperclips with ribbon, and a couple little treasures buried in there are from michaels…

I had so much fun! I hope all this fun stuff will help out lot’s fundraiser!
here’s all the printables….
