A Touch of Spring at Alderberry Hill

Even though we still have snow on the ground here I thought it was time to add a bit of Spring

to my decor with just a hint of Easter!

I pulled out my wreaths and decor from last year and I added in a couple of new things as well.

I love these eggs I made last year, they are so whimsical.

And I updated my chalkboard to something that will last a couple of months because usually I am not as on the ball with changing it for the seasons as I should be.

Here’s another one of my wreaths, I love the pop of color it adds!

Yellow is one of my favourite colors, love this subway art.

I made these Easter eggs for hanging but I don’t have a tree this year so I placed them next to the frame, and these are quite whimsical too!

I’ll show you how I made my own artificial flowers, the one that’s sitting on my table here, later this week.

Yarn Wrapped Shamrock Wreath

Are you lacking in St. Patrick’s Day decor?

I don’t have a lot of St. Paddy’s decor. I wanted to make something that say’s “St. Patrick’s Day” but still fit into my everyday decor.

This yarn wrapped shamrock wreath was the perfect fit!

I grabbed a foam pipe insulator.

You can pick these up at your hardware store.

I bent it into a circle and taped it together.

I secured a piece of yarn to the foam insulator with tape and began to wrap

and wrap and wrap and wrap.

Yes, there’s a lot of wrapping, but not to worry it really doesn’t take that long.

I snipped my yarn and secured with a dab of hot glue.

Then I made these shamrocks with green, gray and white felt.

Click here for a tutorial on how to make them, why reinvent the wheel, right?

I picked these stylish green buttons out of my stash and attached them to the center of the shamrocks with a little dab of hot glue.

The result…a simple St. paddy’s Day wreath for almost next to nothing.

You can’t be that, cheap and easy.

I love projects that are budget friendly!

Bring Fall to your TV Room

206 thumb Bring Fall to your TV Room

Hi Everyone. Today I’m going to share how I added Fall decor to my TV Room.

This area of the room always gets forgotten when decorating because usually there are things laid on the credenza like the kids toys and DVD’s.

I so happy to have given it a mini makeover!

All of the items I used I already had in the house with the exception of the wooden ornaments on the branch & the pumpkin.

This room is off of my kitchen, it had remained pretty plain for years. I had the same pictures above the TV for 5 years and I have never placed anything on the TV credenza other than the TV  (but that didn’t stop my kids from laying things there!)

Here is what I did.

I grabbed a vase and filled it with pine cones and acorns, put a twig from the yard in the vase and hung the prettiest wooden leaf & pumpkin ornaments.

The black bowl to the right was one that I spray painted last year. I turned it upside down and placed the pumpkin on top.

I removed the pictures from the frame and replaced with cardstock maple leaves that I cut out with my Silhouette machine. There were 2 more frames on this wall but I removed those and put up this shelf that I’ve had for years but never used (I actually have another one too!).

I made these topiaries several years ago, the pots used to be yellow. I spray painted them turquoise, they look so much nicer now.

I love how a little of the yellow shows through.

I placed a fall wreath in one of the cubbies of the credenza and the look is complete!

Happy crafting everyone!
