Bring in Spring With Floral Easter Quilling

I thought I’d share something a little different on the blog today! I’ve given quilling a bit of a go over the last year (I am by NO MEANS any sort of expert!) but I thought I’d attempt to bring in spring with some floral Easter quilling!

Easter - The Craft Room and Beyond

It’s been a mixed bag so far this month in terms of weather, so I thoguht I’d dig out my bright coloured paper strips and create something floral and fun!

No Sew Felt Love Heart Decorations

I wanted to try something fun and different this season; so I got thinking, and remembered some old origami I learned as a child. And so I decided to make some no sew felt love heart decorations! Perfect for Valentine’s or just because!

Feel the Love

Instead of sewing these; which is -of course- an option; I used some glue, felt and other bits and pieces from my craft stash, to make some cute handmade decorations. I also quite like the idea of layering these, to be able to use vinyl to decorate them! Perhaps some other time!

Simple DIY Scrap Fabric Hoop Art Love Heart

It’s love season, and I couldn’t resist digging into my stash to make some pretty scrap fabric hoop art! I chose a simple heart design, to keep this DIY project quick and easy to make!

Feel the Love

Everything I used for this project was from my craft stash, and would make great home decor, or a fun handmade gift, for Valentines, Mother’s Day or even for birthdays, new babies, weddings and anniversaries! Changing up the colours alone makes this an incredibly versatile project.

12 Days of Christmas – Festive Vinyl T-Shirt

I wanted to make something using some of my viny stash this year; but I wasn’t sure what to do for ages. Not for a lack of ideas, but quite the opposite! If you’re anything like me, you’ll know there are SO MANY ideas for using HTV; (Heat Transfer Vinyl, or Iron-On Vinyl) available online. In the end I decided to use up some of my pink glitter HTV; to make a vinyl t-shirt with a bit of festive sparkle!
