Check out a new item I will be selling!! I love these Funky Owls! They are so much fun to make and I think they are adorable! Check out the little tie on the boy owl and the sparkly heart on the girl chevron owl! And I LOVE ruffles so I've made sure to add plenty to them! I made these all this morning and would probably make them all day long if I could...but unfortunately I cannot because I have run out of stuffing. So until I get more this is what I have so far... Do you like?

What little girl doesn't love horses?! So I make and sell these adorable horse headbands and thought I would show you how in case you have a little girl who loves horses as much as my little niece!
Items you will need:
~felt (3 colors)
~hot glue gun
~needle & thread (or sewing machine)
First you need to sketch and cut out a silhouette of a horse.
Next, cut that silhouette from a piece of your felt and then set your horse aside.
Then you need to cut 2 circles (same size) out of your felt. This color felt will be the background behind your horse silhouette.
Sew your horse onto one of the circles. You can hand stitch it on or you can use a sewing machine. I used my sewing machine because my hand stitching is not very even. Once stitched on, you can cut a a piece from your 3rd piece of felt to make the horses hair (the light pink part). Hot glue that piece on to the horse.
Next you need tulle trim. It would look CUTE with pink tulle trim but all I had was gray so that's what I made mine with. You can find various colors of tulle trim at HobbyLobby!
Then hot glue a strip of the tulle trim around the circle your horse is on. (Sometimes I cut the tulle trim a little bit so it doesn't stick out so far)...
Almost done! Hot glue the front piece (the one with the horse) to your headband.
Last, but not least, hot glue the other felt circle you cut and hot glue it to the back of the headband as well as glue to the back of your front (horse) piece. The pictures should show you better than I'm explaining!
That's it! Now you have this adorable horse headband for your little girl, grand-daughter, or niece to wear!!

You will need:
~1 wire wreath
That's it! Just 2 things!! Can't beat that right?!
You will need LOTS of scrap fabric cut into strips. My strips were about 1.5" wide and 5.5" in length. You can play around with it and see what sizes you like best though!
And you will need a wire wreath which you can find at good ol' HobbyLobby.. mine is an 18" wreath I believe. Then all you have to do is tie your strips of fabric on! I didn't double knot mine, a good tug after you tie it once should be fine!
I love how it turned out! It's springy and even looks a lil like Easter!! I have plans to make many more in different colors! I want to do a Hawkeye inspired one with their football colors! I'll be sure to share a picture of it when I do! If you make one feel free to share it with me! I'd love to see it!

I am finally thought of a way to put the lace ribbon to good use! I'm not sure why it took me so long to think of it..but I'm using them as headbands that you can tie in back! I added some fun flowers, gems, buttoms, and whatever else I could find or make and made these fun headbands! They are A LOT cuter in person!! (I need a new camera!!) Anyways, I love them! I'm planning on making lots more to sell at my upcoming craft show!

#1. Cut a large heart out of cardboard.
#2. Take crepe paper ($1 at DollarTree) and roll them up to make rossettes & glue them on the heart (If you don't know how to make a rolled rossette you can find a tutorial HERE)
#3. Once the heart is covered in rossettes you can add some beads or gems for some extra oomph! ;)
#4. Hot glue a ribbon (I used lace ribbon) to the heart so you can hang it up for all to see!
