Hello Winter Sign - Finding Inspiration Everywhere

I used my vintage sign holder to make a Hello Winter sign for my winter home decor. 

I had a winter Starbucks gift card sitting on my desk that I was going to use in my Project Life album. 

While I was planning my winter sign, I kept looking at the gift card and kept thinking how pretty it was. I figured why not use it as my inspiration piece. 

I found an older Echo Park paper collection in my stash called Wintertime. 

Next, I browsed through my Silhouette files and found this bare winter trees cut file from Miss Kate Cuttables. 

Next, I cut my title, hello winter, which is also available at the Silhouette online store. 

Using the gift card as my inspiration, I found this bird in the Silhouette store and used the same red paper as the title.

I then cut some snowflakes on my Silhouette and decided to emboss them. 

I used Kaleidoscope embossing powder which added a pretty shimmer to the snowflakes. 

Here is the completed sign. 

I found the snowman sticker on my Echo Park Wintertime sticker sheet. 

Here are some close-ups of the completed sign. 

I also decided to add some silver and white sequins to the sign too. 

Here is the sign on my antique hutch in my hallway. 

My other winter decor on this hutch includes an apothecary jar filled with white and clear gems, a faux camera, and a ceramic white owl. 

I had so much fun creating this sign!

Next time you need some inspiration, take a look around your craft desk or home. 

You never know what will inspire you!!

Winter Yarn Pom Pom Wreath

I made a winter Pom Pom wreath for my home decor and wanted to share it with you all today. 
I have been pinning Pom Pom wreaths on my winter Pinterest board and I finally decided to make one for my home. 
First I went through my stash and found everything that I needed to make this wreath. 

I had some leftover yarn, burlap, and a straw wreath on hand. 

I cut my burlap into 2 inch strips and then wrapped and hot glued the pieces around the wreath form. 

I used some ribbon from my stash as my hanger. 

I learned how to make the Pom Pom's by watching this YouTube video linked here

I hot glued the thicker pom pom's around the center of the wreath form. 

I then hot glued the thinner yarn pom pom's around the inside of the wreath form. 

Here is the completed wreath on my front door. 

I love this ribbon!

I chose to use white and cream and love these colors against my red door. 

If you would like to see the step by step tutorial you can watch my YouTube video below. 

I had so much fun making this wreath! I also used up some yarn that has been in my stash for a while. Yay!!

I hope you enjoyed this post and will subscribe for future posts. 

Hugs, Shelly
