Scrap Burlap Monogram Wreath

Texas Craft House

So, if you follow this blog regularly, you can see that we love our wreaths!! Elisabeth, Cassie and I have wreaths for every season/holiday. Weeks ago, I joked with Elisabeth because I have made a wreath for everything imaginable and now I don’t have any more occasions to create a new wreath! Lucky for me, Elisabeth and I were out with my best friend, Jill, and we were talking about the Americana Wreath we had made and Jill made a comment that she wanted a wreath like that. She said she loves seeing all the nice wreaths in her neighborhood and wanted her own. Her birthday was only a month a way, so I now knew what I was going to get her!

Super Simple Peanut Butter Chocolate Pretzel Bites

Texas Craft House

So we had a contest at work yesterday to see who could make the best dessert… The managers competed against each other and the team voted on what they liked best. Spoiler Alert: I won!! Since there were so many people trying the food, the dessert needed to be bite size, grabbable, and room temperature. So this was my submission- Peanut Butter Chocolate Pretzel Bites!

Build Your Own Fire Pit

Texas Craft House

My husband and I have been working this past week on giving our backyard a little TLC. It has been raining so much here in Texas these past couple months that we haven’t been able to keep up with things like usual. After a weekend of weeding, pruning, cleaning and planting we decided to reward ourselves with a new fire pit. We’ve tried the metal fire pits or the clay chimineas but have had them break and rust so much that we decided to make one out of stone.

Patriotic Mason Jar Citronella Candles 

Texas Craft House

So my Aunt absolutely loves the Fourth of July. Every year it’s a big extravaganza at her house on Independence Day. Everyone gathers around and spends the entire day outside…. Then at night we set off fireworks. Problem is, bugs eat us alive!! I wanted to make a practical gift for her that she could keep out for decoration and help with the bug problem. So here are the mason jars I turned into citronella candles and painted like the American flag.

Puff Paint on Canvas

Texas Craft House

Happy Sunday! Today I am sharing a craft I did for Elisabeth over 3 years ago. It was one of the first blog posts I did on the old blog (now it’s one of the most popular searches on Pinterest for puff paint on canvas!).  Wait until you see how easy it is to add handwriting to a canvas. It’s a fun and easy craft and you could really play around with the idea to come up with some fun projects.
