I was so happy to be asked to be a part of the Fall Ideas Tour with a few other wonderful creative bloggers. I quickly chose the wreath category, since I LOVE creating fun door decor. I thought this DIY Moss and Owl Wreath would be so cute!

Sometimes you really struggle with a craft idea. The idea you had in your head just doesn’;t quiet workout like you were planning. ? ? ??

I knew once I got in my craft room, it would come together, I just didn’;t expect so many hurdles. ? ?

I headed to Michaels, and was thinking about moss. I knew I wanted moss.

I ended up with:

I quickly found the moss and saw they had some of the self adhesive moss sheets in stock. I figured it would be so much easier than trying to glue it all on.

I opened it up and got to work. I wasn’;t sure if I wanted to cut it in strips and wrap the wreath form, or just lay the moss over and fold it around the form instead.

I decided to just wrap and fold it around.?

I cut a hole in the middle and if I were to do it againpersonalized gifts for 1 year old, I’;d cut the slits while the paper was still on. Cutting slits in the middle makes it much easier to fold towards and over the wreath. ?Cutting with the paper still on, means your scissors won’;t get sticky stuff all over them. Trust me.

Once I peeled the paper off, I suddenly remembered just how sticky this stuff is. Super sticky! It was tricky to handle, but I made it work.

I wrapped, cut slits as best I could to wrap some more. I clearly could have thought this through a little more, but what fun is that?

Once completely covered with the moss, I raided the stash I had picked up. I bought pheasant feathers, a cute little owl, some pinecones, glittered acorns. I took apart a few silk floral picks I already had.

I had not a clue as to what I wanted to use. I really wanted to use my owl and I really wanted to use the feathers, but the two together looked silly.

So I scratched that idea and decided to create a type of swag out of the greens I had, then working in the laws of 3, I created a little center piece with 2 pine cones and a glittered acorn.

I grabbed my black gingham burlap ribbon and hung it up. I liked it. I took several photos and when I pulled up the photos to edit, I saw it. I’;m sure Freud would have something to say.

I thought maybe my mind was in the gutter, because seriously…;…;. who would think that an owl would have a glittery piece of anatomy, right?

I consulted with a couple of online blogger friends and with the photo still on my screen, my son walks in my office. I decided to ask him. I didn’;t get more than 2 words out. “;Lucas, does.…;”; and he quickly responded “;YES!“;…;…; so back to the drawing board, which was really the craft room.

I ripped that acorn off, added a few more pine cones and flanked them with the acorns.?


Much better!?

I saved myself a lot of embarrassment!

I think it turned out pretty cute. Even though it’;s a little catty whompis from being torn apart.?

Team Ibles. Now get the puck outta here. What is more Fn manlier than getting geared up for a game of hockey...or not? There are no couch potato makers. Well, you need an authentic team jersey to give you that aggressive and imposing look when you go up against the other team. Missing a few teeth helps too. What is more manlier than knowing how to sew? Knowing how to sew your own hockey shirt from scratch without losing a limb or taking an eye out. My favorite scrappy underdog team is the Mighty Robot Ducks, the Bad News AutoBears take to the ice or roll out a new update. So get ready to sharpen your skates, oh ok, if you only have figure skates, put them on...DISCLAIMER: Blame Canada.

We all love hand-making for the holidays, and each Friday from now through the end of the year we are sharing some of our favorite seasonal sewing projects – from decorations to brighten your home to projects that make great gifts.

Your newspaper décor room of course! Be inspired to do budget in a trendy way using newspaper inspired themes. You may have to give a couple of coats of clear varnish to stop the ink from getting everywhere, but the end results will be worth the effort.
