How to make a Pom Pom Necklace

This is all the supplies you will need;
felt fabric
color fabric of your choice
Hot glue gun
fabric diapering marker
skinny chain
something to trace circles with, I used a lid to one of my hair products.
Trace the circles on the felt, and then on the fabric. Fold up the fabric so you can cut many at one time.

Scrunch up the fabric and put a dot pf glue at the bottom point.
Glue it at the center of the felt circle.
Continue to follow around your center point
I make five of these for a necklace. Once you have five completed glue them on felt in the shape of necklace you want, starting with the center. Before you do the last two put the end of the chain down and glue the fabric on top of it. I make the chain long enough to put over my head.

This one my 9 year old daughter made, all by her self :)

Easy Christmas TuTu

Measure your elastic and sew the ends, or you can use an elastic head band.
Next roll up the fabric and cut in 4 in strips. Take the long strips and then cut them in half. Take that half and fold it in half and pull it through around the elastic. Continue this all the way around. I used about 5 yards of fabric.

Powder Room Makeover

This bathroom was stuck in the early 90s. It had floral wall paper floor to ceiling, (unfortunately I took the picture after I had already taken down the wallpaper). It also had a huge mirror and big vanity light bulbs! yuck
 I took off the wall paper, with a Weber Steamer. Next I took off the cabinet doors, and primed them along with the frame of the cabinets, and added the white paint next. The hardware that I took off, I spray painted with bronze spray paint that matched the bronze knobs I bought. I painted the walls with a warm tan called Moose Munch from Lowell's Valor paint. I Got a new light fixture and mirror,along with bronze accessories!

Daughters Room

My girls love antiques, so while they were away visiting my in-laws, I went to some local antique shops and found some neat pieces. The Antique Tea Cart between the two chairs is over a 100 years old the two sides fold out. I got this for free! The chairs I painted while and then sanded down all the edges, to give it a shabby chic look. I did the same thing with the antique window.
