Felt Flower Tutorial

I have had people asking me to post a tutorial for this felt flower brooch for a while, and I finally got around to making one.  This time I made a yellow one & I really like how it turned out.
 This glittered felt flower is not too hard to make. It's a really great idea to give as a gift, and it fits perfectly into an origami box made with 12in x 12in paper. :)  This project turned out to be difficult to photograph, so I drew it for you. 

materials

You need:
  •  glue gun
  • felt
  • one pearl bead
  • glitter
  • fastener/brooch pin
_____________________

Step one 
  • Cut 5 of each size of petal, large, medium and small. (Cut 5 extra large petals to make flower more full.)
  • Cut one circle
  • cut one scalloped piece
 
______________________

Step two
Glitter each petal and the scalloped piece

 
__________________________________

 Step three
  • Cut middle of each petal almost half way up
  • Fold and glue one side to the other
  • Repeat till all petals are shaped
 
_____________________________

Step four
  • Glue the largest petals to your circle first
  • Glue medium  petals on top of large then small etc...
_______________________ 

Step five
  •  Roll the scalloped piece and glue to center of flower
  • glue pearl into middle of rolled scalped piece

 Finally attach  brooch pin to the back
And you're done!

I chose a thick yarn for warmth, and acrylic for wash-ability. This was my second time using this yarn, I am really happy with the way it turned out and will probably use it again in the fut

D-I-Y craft "tutorial"

Here is what I'm making- Christmas ice-skating figurine out of paper mache`. items needed: pliers, bailing wire, tin foil, news paper, mix of flour and water in a bowl, screw and screwdriver, wooden block. I bent the wire using pliers into the shape of my desired position for the "skeleton" I shaped the foot that touches the ground into a circle just big enough to fit the screw. and I drilled the "skeleton" to the wood block via the circle in the foot. I then put a ball of foil onto the head and body to get the mass I wanted and i went crazy with the paper mache` I also reinforced the scarf with wire to get the effect of it blowing behind her. added some pretty colors and voila`! she is still needing touch ups but this gives you the general idea of how she will turn out. Sorry about the shortage of informative photos. I'll remember to take more during the actual sculpting and pasting of paper mache` next time. Hope you enjoyed it!

Tutorilal: How to make christmas salt dough "cookie" ornaments

Hello and Happy Friday! With all my other projects going on with blogging, home school, Christmas presents, and sculptures I am so happy to have this tutorial checked off and done!  It is such a great craft because it costs next to nothing and is so classic and pretty.  I am a firm believer that one can never have too many ornaments. And that is probably why I have three Christmas trees up in my house. Not counting any trees smaller than three feet. If I count those then I have seven trees in my house. But we're getting off the subject, so on to the tutorial. :)   These ornament "cookies" are super easy to make. _____________________________________ You need: salt flour water cookie cutters rolling pin oven parchment paper clear glitter puff paint ___________________________________ Combine  1 cup salt 1 cup flour (Seriously, that's it! Super easy to remember, too.)  _____________________________________ Add Water Just enough water to get the consistency
