Frugal Crafting Fun: Easy Spring Wreath

springwreathmce

Let’s bring some color into our spaces, shall we? There is no better way to do this than this easy peasy spring wreath. You can make your own wreath just like this using less than $5 in supplies and in just minutes. Yes, minutes! You don’t need to be super crafty, you don’t need a lot of time, you just need a few supplies and you can adorn your door, space, or even office area with a wreath that screams WARM WEATHER IS HERE! So are you ready to get crafty? Take a look below at how to get started!

Supplies needed:
Grapevine wreath
Spray paint (optional, only if needed)
Mini paper drink umbrellas
Hot glue, glue gun

Directions:
1. Begin by spraying your grapevine wreath the color of your choice. We found precolored wreaths at our local Hobby Lobby Store for under $4 that worked perfectly. If you can’t find something similar, find a grapevine wreath at your local dollar store and give it a coat or two of the color of your choice.
2. Once your wreath is dry, and you want to be sure it is totally dry, you are going to add your drink umbrellas. Open your umbrellas up so they are nice and full. Apply some hot glue to the stems of them and press them into your wreath. Hold them in place so the umbrellas attach and stay attached to the grapevine.
3. Don’t cover the entire wreath, just apply umbrellas to the corners of it in clusters and bunches.

When you are done, you can add a ribbon for hanging or just display your wreath as is. As you can see, it is the perfect pop of color to a bland space or any space that needs the look and feel of spring.

So are you ready to craft your own? Go for it! Then, share your creation with us on the Facebook page or Community Chat page. We want to see how crafty you are!

Happy Tuesday, friends!

Monday Inspiration: Embracing Silence

silence

Are you one of those people who are more comfortable when surrounded by noise? Many are, you are not alone. But did you know that sometimes, silence truly is golden? During the silent times in our lives, we are best able to reflect inward and listen to what it is our bodies and minds are telling us.

To today, let’s try for finding the beauty in and embracing silence.

As parents, when we no longer hear laughter or screaming coming from the kid’s playroom, we know to go in check on them. As anyone with children knows, silence is typically an indicator that someone is up to trouble. When we cook dinner we often keep the t.v. or music on as background noise. We very rarely think of driving a car without the radio on, and whether is it 100 degrees out or 2 degrees, you may sleep with the window open to hear crickets, the cars, and whatever else might be going on in the neighborhood.

And so I want you think about…how very uncomfortable are you with silence?

I want you to think about this scenario: You know when you are with someone who makes you so comfortable with yourself, that no words are necessary? There is no weird or awkward silence when no one is talking. There is just silence. No one has to talk, no one has to entertain, you can just sit and be you. Quietly. Silently. And it is all good. That’s it. You can pretty much hear each others thoughts, feel their contentment, and all seems right. Even if it just for a moment.

So it makes me wonder, if we can absorb that much from another person when we enjoy silence with them, how much can we absorb about ourselves when we sit in silence alone? Hey, it is worth a try. In fact, once you learn to embrace a little silence with yourself each day, you just might become addicted to it.

So enjoy the silence you are able to find today. Turn off the distractions and just sit. You will feel amazing, listening to absolutely nothing, yet hearing absolutely everything.

Share with us your tips on how you embrace and enjoy silence on our Facebook page or Community Chat page!
