Fabric covered light switches

I actually did these a couple of years ago, so I don't have step by step,
but they were super easy.

Here is the one I did for my son's room

And here is the one I did for my daughter's room

All I did was measure how big the cover was and cut the material about 1/4 in. bigger.
Then I cut a slit for the light switch and then mod podged it on. It was so super easy and fast!

Elegant wreath

Okay, so this is probably my favorite wreath! I absolutely love how it turned out! I think it has such an elegant look with the lace.

I totally fell in love with this wreath from Tea Rose Home! She did an amazing job! She has a wonderful tutorial Here, go check it out! So I had to try it!

Mine doesn't look as good as hers, but I still love it! I love browns!

A few pics to show you some things I added to mine. Tea Rose Home has the best tutorial though.

I took ribbon and wrapped it around the middle of my wreath to cover up all the pins.

Another view to show how the ribbon is covering up the pins

Just showing how I used pearls with holes in them and put straight pins in them, to give it a more fancy look!

This is how I hung my wreath. I just took some ribbon and pinned it on the back.

So pretty!!

Monogrammed decorative plates!

I love monogrammed things! So, I came up with this!

I love the plates that I did below so much, I decided to make some more!
They were just too easy!!
I used the same method as I did for these, so if you want instructions click Here.
I basically did everything the same, except I taped off the edges when I painted it black, to give it a border, and cut out an R letter out of scrapbook paper, slapped it on and mod podged the whole thing!

Then I did this one for my sister. I took a flower paper punch, and punched out a whole bunch of flowers out of 3 different colors of cardstock, and mod podged it on. Then I took a T wood letter, purchased from Walmart, and covered it with material and glued it on!

Super Easy!!!


Table runner

I actually made this table runner for my sister for Christmas. It was supper easy!

So I don't have pictures taken along the way, but this is so simple, you almost don't need any pictures.

Just take your strips, and in my case they were about 2 1/2 inches wide, and sew them all together. Then take your other material that you want on the back side and but them right sides together. You sew all the way around it, allowing about a 2 inch seam, so you can cut it.

Then cut little slits all the way around and you are finished!

Here is the other side of the table runner. It is a little bright....sorry!
Then you are done....soooo easy! Anyone can do this!
