Hello Today’s Creative Life readers， Colleen here from Lemon Thistle (home to DIYcustomized gifts for kids， parties， home decor， and babies). Lately I’；ve been wanting to change up my decor for spring with some brighter touches. I’；m working on a pretty limited budget right now and with a bag of boring throw pillows sitting in my basement， I thought it was time to give one of them a refresh. This wreath monogram is so fresh， it’；s perfect for spring. And by using flocked vinyl， it feels pretty luxe to boot.
Start by deciding on your design. I created a wreath monogram using this gorgeous Pillowbook font. It came with some wreath freebies so it was easy to create the graphic! You can do it in Photoshop or even Picmonkey.com since it’；s so simple. Then， load your design into Cricut Design Space， size it to preference， and hit go! Make sure you check off the iron on (reverse design) and pay attention to put the shiny side of the iron on vinyl down.
When it’；s cut， weed away the pieces you don’；t want ironed on while your iron preheats. Iron the fabric pillowcase to warm it up before applying your design， then apply pressure while ironing for about 30 seconds. I find I need to let it cool before peeling the plastic back (or burnt fingers are in store!).
I really love the way this turned out. It’；s SO simple and looks really fabulous with the rest of my spring decor.

My husband Carleton and I both went to the same college (GO BEARS! CAL FOREVER!) and believe that a solid education is the best gift we can give our daughter. To that end, we like to turn family time into learning time whenever we can. This game of “Sink or Float” is loads of fun (kids love playing with water and making messes, right?), but it’s also really a science experiment in disguise.
Don’t you just want to slip some tiny toes into these reversible baby booties? I love that they look so stylish and can be made with scrap fabrics you already have at home. It was no surprise to find out that Elles, the designer of these shoes and pattern, used to be a fashion designer. Without a doubt, these adorable booties can make a perfect gift and keepsake for a new little peanut.
