Guest Blogger!

Oh Boy you guys!!


 It's time for my first guest blogger!


Allow me to introduce Sarah from Be crafty, Be creative, Be cute! (Isn't she and her family adorable?!) She might be new to the blogging world but she is not new to the crafting world! She agreed to come over and post a fun spring tutorial so we can all help swear off winter :) Go check her out, borrow her creative and amazingly thrifty ideas! I will be hitting up the craft store later today in fact! So without further ado...here she is!

Hello Fellow Crafties!


I am so excited to be a guest blogger here at Krazy Craft Lady! What an honor! Christine is so creative and crafty!


SO, as many of you probably are, I am ready for spring. So.... I am skipping all the holidays in between and going straight to Spring Crafts.


Here is a super EASY and super cute Spring Door ornament, or wherever else you might want to hang it!




Supplies


1. One piece of 1"x2"x8 foot board, cut in four 12 inch pieces to make the frame. (you can use thicker wood if you would like a chunkier frame).

2. Three decorative balls, either purchased at Michael's for $1 or made by you!

3. 1/4 Yard Burlap

4. Hot glue gun

5. ribbon

6. Embellishments, marker or cricket for house number

7. And a Handy Dandy man to help you put your frame together with his tools!


Tutorial



1. Start by putting your frame together. Each end of your 12 inch pieces will need to have 45 degree angles to fit into a frame shape. Nail in place.
 (you can see the angle, right???)

2. Start covering your frame with burlap, pulling very tight and adhering with hot glue on the reverse side. 

3. Apply house number to front of frame either with a marker or vinyl lettering. (This part of the tutorial was inspired by Redberry Barn's frame. Go check her out here!)






4. Take your three balls and attach a small ribbon and then attach them to the frame. (I attached mine to the front of the frame and I'm not quite sure what I was thinking. If you attached them to the back, you would not have to add the embellishments at the top to cover up.)




5. Add embellishments where you feel they need 'em, or leave it how it is! Cute and Simple huh???

How adorable is that?! I love it so much. Thanks again Sarah! Don't forget to hop on over and visit her here!
