DIY Double Feature :: Stamp Art & Wrapped Wreath

February 12, 2012

Today it SNOWED in Austin…a beautiful nano-second of frozen precipitation. And thus, after a brisk 4 mile jog, I promptly returned home to watch movies and get my craft on.

Numero Uno:

I bought these stamps after the holidays from Anthropologie—I’ve got tons left over though so there may be more stamp-theme projects coming!

And the finished product! You can’t tell from this angle, but some of the stamps are raised/some are glued flat to the background paper to vary it up a little.

Numero Dos:

I jumped on the yarn wreath wagon thanks to this picture:

And my take:

You can probably tell from the picture, but I opted for a foam circle—You can use the straw wreaths to create a chunkier look, though. I found the foam on sale at Michael’s, so it seemed like the obvious choice for me. Tie off your yarn to start and get wrapping. I barely used any of my yarn…I think next time I’ll go with a chunkier look like the OCD photo above (maybe I should have just kept wrapping but my movie ended and there was laundry to fold. Le sigh.)

The flowers were leftovers from a different project (headbands). They are made from a 1 inch wide pieice of fabric that was folded in half and pressed with an iron, then curled to make the flower form. You can find WAY better tutorials for the fabric flowers here or here.

I love lazy Sundays!
