Spring Has Sprung!
Day 4 Of May Arts / Bella Blvd Blog Week!
Spring Has Sprung!
Hi everyone! Are you having a fantabulous blog week with May Arts and
Bella BLVD? I sure hope so! I had so much fun creating this beautiful spring door hanger.
Here's the details on how to make one for yourself. I found a 12X12 wood piece that I painted a beautiful turquoise to go with the luscious plaid Bella BLVD paper.
I then used mod-podge to glue the paper to the wood.
For the flower pot, I used a piece of scrapbook paper and drew the design I wanted the flower pot to look like. I then used a glue runner on the paper and cut some EM32 ribbon to lay over the top. I have loved using this line of ribbon for many different things and it made my basket look awesome!
I also glued this to some old cereal box card board and then cut it out following the design I had drawn on the scrapbook paper.
Glue this to your wood and mod-podge over the pot and top of the paper.
For the exquisite flowers all you need to do is take a needle and thread, weave it through the bottom of the ribbon and pull the thread to make it bunch. For the big flowers I used 30-36" of ribbon. I absolutely loved the ruffle faux suede ribbon for this. The flowers look gorgeous and the ribbon was perfect to work with.
Believe it or not, for the flower centers I used a ruffled hair scrunchy that I cut apart. For the stems and leaves I used ribbon 333-16. I cut it the proper length and then used a lighter to melt the edges a bit to give them a more natural look.
I added a few more ribbons and embellishments and voila we have a beautiful spring door hanger bright and cheerful. You will love using this ribbon to make some beautiful spring flowers of your own.
Hot glue gun, scissors, and acrylic paint.
Thanks for joining us today!
