Top Projects of 2011

At the end of each year it’s fun to look back to see what was accomplished and to share a few favorite projects from the year. 

A Pine Cone Door Decoration brightened our front door during the cold winter months.


A yo-yo embellished Spring Wreath  decorated a porch wall.

A Tea Cart Makeover was a summer project.

As was this Tennis Racket Dahlia front door wreath.

A Patriotic Table Runner adorned our table for the 4th.

Transform a Wreath with Paint was a fall project.  This wreath crafted in February was badly faded by fall.  A bit of paint transformed it into….

Can you believe that it’s the same wreath?

A School Pride Pillowcase Skirt is great for game-day and so simple to make.

For Christmas, Peppermint and Candy Cane Wreaths brightened my windows.

  1. Wow, I think I missed a few of these! I know I didn’t see the tennis racket Dahlia, but I love it! And I missed the tea cart makeover, I’ll have to make time to go back and see those. I guess that is why it’s a good thing to do a post about your top projects! Have a Happy New Year Paula! I enjoyed your blog in 2011 and can’t wait to see what new things 2012 brings!

  2. Hi Paula! Thank you for stopping by and leaving such a sweet comment and sharing about your Father. Losing a parent is so hard. I think I have cried more today reading other people’s posts than I have in a long time…another blogger had to put her dog down…geesh. I think I need to watch something funny and stop reading blogs today! lol Anyway, thank you for stopping by. Love all of your projects…you are crafty! Kristine

  3. Wow…you are crafty! I don’t think I saw all of these. The candy cane wreath is awesome, I love it! And the pillowcase skirt! Very neat!

    Wishing you a Happy New Year, Paula!

  10. Oh, I love your pine cone door decoration. Always wondering what to do once the wreath goes down – seems so naked. Might have to ‘borrow’ this idea. Thanks for sharing. Happy 2012. liz
