{DIY} Snow Globe

I miss the snow that we used to get at this time of year. I miss it so much that I had to find ways to fake it.
I like to think that this little vignette came right from my old home in Colorado...you know like I some how took a tree with some snow and shrunk it down into miniature form...it made sense to me! 



Here's what you'll need:
Ball Jar (size appropriate for your tree)
Fake snowy tree
Styrofoam
Strip of burlap
Felt for bow
Hot Glue gun & glue
Scissors


Break up the foam to make snow in a blender.

Hot glue the tree bottom to the jar lid.
Put snow in jar then put the lid on. 

To make the bow cut two strips of fabric from your felt. The large strip is approximately 12" by 1" wide. The small strip is approximately 4" long by 1/2" wide. 

Fold longer strip like this.

Pinch the middle and wrap the smaller strip around pinched spot.

Sew or glue the small strip together in the back of the bow.

Cut off excess.

Wrap a strip of burlap around the lid glue or tie in place. 
Glue on bow.


That's it!
Happy Holidays!

High-Waisted Sash Skirt {Tutorial}

Ok so I'm officially on a skirt kick as this is my third one in 2 weeks. With spring in the air I just can't help but want to live in spring things! This diy skirt is similar to the other one I did but this one has a sash and is fuller...which I think is way fun! To purchase this exact fabric go to my etsy shop! If you're not up for making it you're in luck! I now sell it on my etsy shop too! You should also check it out on my friend over at Stylish Petite!

Sweet as a Berry Little Girl Dress {tutorial}

With Valentine's day lurking around the corner it's only natural for a blogger like myself to begin thinking of cute ways to incorporate the holiday. When I came across this strawberry fabric I fell in love with it's sweetness and decided that I would make my daughter a Valentine's day inspired dress. You may remember my Valentine's day inspired onesie from last year...Now if only my daughter would get up and walk in it instead of scoot around on her booty getting the beautiful fabric all dirty! Sigh...someday!
