Aqua Sea Shell Cross

This aqua and shell cross is a perfect fit into a beach or coastal themed home. The soothing and calming colors correspond well with the spiritual and meaningful cross.

My Mom loves to make crosses. So we were combining pretty ribbons with some of the crosses she made. This combination was so pretty together. We used a wired burlap color ribbon with aqua polka dots as the bottom layer. Then we topped it off with an aqua lace ribbon of the same tones as the polka dot ribbon. I happened to have some leftover sea shells and that made the perfect centerpiece.

You can put a hanger on the back or display in an easel like we have done.

Hope you like a coastal feel to your home. You don’t have to live on the beach or live next to a coastline in order to decorate with blues and aquas. Enjoy the tranquility all through the year.

Thank you for reading my blog!! It means a lot to me!

Spring Block Letters

One of the first projects we made was to welcome spring and make these block letters. I was ready to take down Winter and Valentine’s decor and put up something with bright colors. These letters were the ticket. We used 2×4’s and stained them. Then decoupaged spring time scrapbook paper on each one. I used ready made letters and flowers to embellish each block. This was a fun project. I am thinking about turning them around and decorating Americana “Summer” on the backside. I’ll keep you posted if I do this.

Nature Inspired Spring Wreath

Another favorite project was this spring wreath. I had a Berry Wreath on here for Christmas/Winter/Valentine’s. I love how simple and clean this looks for Spring. I used a ready made grapevine wreath and embellished with a birds nest and purple heather. I used my wooden tray as a backdrop. More info can be found here: NATURE INSPIRED SPRING WREATH

Rustic Lace and Burlap Angel

This cute neutral colored angel can be a part of your decor all year round. Mom made here with a more rounded bottom and a round ball for her head. Except for the burlap flower, lace and raffia she is fairly primitive in design. More info can be found here: RUSTIC LACE AND BURLAP ANGEL

Garden Angels

We made these garden angels before things started turning green. I love to put angels in my flower beds and flower pots. They are very comforting symbols to mix in your home and garden decor. We also made one with a stake to put in flower pots. More info can be found here: RUSTIC WOODEN GARDEN ANGELS

Wooden Blue Cross with Cameo and Sheer Ribbon

Crosses are great for this season and any season. Mom has been working on several at the same time. Here is the first one she finished. It is made out of wood and she painted it light blue so the dark blue sheer organza ribbon would stand out against it.

Wooden Blue Cross with Cameo

She created a base for it so it would stand alone. Some of them she makes so that they hang up and some she makes so that the stand up.

The ribbon inspired her with this cross. It is a beautiful color of royal blue.

As you can see, it can be mixed in with your other Spring Decor.
The ribbon has an iridescence to it.

She had a blue cameo that matched perfectly that she decided to put in the middle. It is the perfect finishing touch.

The cameo is the highlight in the picture.
Here it is nestled between the pair of bunnies that have the same color ribbons.
