A Cheerful Wreath From Cupcake Liners Free Tutorial by Kelly Oribine of The Complete Guide To Imperfect Homemaking

I just LOVE making wreaths of all shapes, sizes, and materials and love changing mine our with the seasons.    So when I found a Kelly Orbine's tutorial showing you how to make a cheerful wreath out of cupcake liners I was thrilled.  It's so bright and cheery and perfect for spring or summer.

Here's what Kelly had to say about her tutorial:  My 2nd oldest turned four this weekend and her party was loosely cupcake themed.  The night before, I whipped up a cute wreath using colourful paper cupcake liners. I started with a foam wreath form, a lot of pretty cupcake liners, and some pins.

Here's what Carol had to say about her tutorial:  I thought that I would contribute the next few weeks to Spring Bulbs and Flowers in Silk Ribbon Embroidery. The colours are so vibrant and Silk Ribbon Embroidery lends itself well with the many colours available. A great way to keep Spring in your home all year round. Enviromentally friendly, no water needed.

Viola in Silk Ribbon Embroidery

Here's what Carol had to say about her tutorial:  As I promised in my earlier posting of Pansies in SRE, this is my version of a Viola flower. Please keep in mind that I have worked this in  7 mm. ribbons to make it easier to see on your monitors. I feel these would be so much more delicate and  effective in a 4 mm. ribbon.

Carol's Bio: My life is at the stage that I can indulge in my interests of Embroidery and Crafts. Ribbons,beads,threads, laces and trims all have a special place here in my studio. 

My childhood was spent on the family dairy farm in Toowoomba, Queensland. When I was about 12 years old, my Grandmother (nicknamed Daisy – hence the name Daisy’s Garden) introduced me to the joys of needlework. I am so thankful to her for giving me a skill that I could enjoy and build upon for life. After the chores were done, whenever I had some spare time, I would sit quietly on the front porch and stitch away. I remember these times so fondly. When I retired, and finally had some time to myself, I had the desire to do embroidery again. I didn’t get far with the fancy work tablecloth however, once I discovered Silk Ribbon Embroidery, I became addicted!

Spring Is In My Heart and Home Tweet Home Free E-Patterns From Renee Mullins of Plum Purdy Designs

I just LOVE artists and painters as I'm so envious of their enormous talent.  I  wish I could paint like they do, but I wasn't blessed with such talent.

However, I can try my hand at painting some of the wonderful creations by some of the very gifted artists and painters on the web.  One such artist is Renee Mullins of Plum Purdy Designs and she has created some wonderful free painting e-patterns on her Plum Purdy Designs website.

Here's her free spring e-patterns. Enjoy!

I found this little scalloped box at “Michael’s”, ALTHOUGH, you can paint this on a square box or other surface.

Suggestions… Photo albums, enlarge for a welcome sign, tote bags… be creative!

*Drill a small hole in the center and use as a tag for a gift basket or clasp onto a tote or purse.
*Attach a magnet to the back.
*Glue a long thin stake to the back and use as a plant poke.
*Drill a tiny hole on each side of the heart and attach to a basket with wire.
I hope you will enjoy my “Springtime” design! Happy Painting!

Please make sure that I am given credit as the designer on the line drawing by printing my name with the line drawing.
  • Other than the line drawing, no other part of my design can be reproduced, such as the photograph and instructions. If the photograph, instructions, and line drawing are all reproduced, this is actually “reproducing” my pattern packet or book design, and this is not permitted.
