Recently, while reorganizing my craft stash, I realized I had enough leftover ribbons and other materials to create a new version of last year’s ladybug mesh wreath.
In Ladybug Wreath For New, Existing Homes Bridges Seasons, I actually shared two I had made. One was for dear sister-in-law (SIL) to decorated the door of her lovely new home in Northern Virginia.
Shortly thereafter, one of my longtime followers ordered a different version of the ladybug mesh wreath for her home in Atlanta.
Even after creating the two large wreaths, I still had quite a bit of the two styles of ladybug print ribbon leftover. Each came mailorder in big, ten-yard rolls. I also found an extra wreath form, and several yards of complimentary ribbon and materials to create a new ladybug mesh wreath. All that was needed was a roll of mesh, a large sunflower and a ladybug embellishment.
And, it was time to start restocking my Etsy shop, DebbeesBuzzBoutique with a new wreath for spring. Let me show you how it turned out and to style your own seasonal decor.
For the holidays, and to compliment my home decor, I created a peacock wreath. Actually, I made two — one for myself, and another for a friend who also has peacock theme decorations.
Like so many other crafting projects, the inspiration for this Christmas decoration came from images I saw on Pinterest. Lots and lots of gorgeous peacock wreaths out there! Over the past few years, I’ve probably collected 20 pictures on a board.
Today, I’m sharing the peacock wreath I created for December’s Pinterest Challenge Blog Hop.
Hosted by Erlene of My Pinterventures, the hop’s intent is to motivate all to not just pin, but act on an idea. You’ll find links to other projects, recipes and ideas by fellow bloggers at the bottom of this post.
If you are a regular follower of Debbee’s Buzz, you know I have a passion for peacocks. If you are new to the blog or just visiting, welcome! Come along and see the holiday wreath that joins other peacock theme holiday decorations in my living room, front hall and dining room.
A quick post today to announce the Alice in Wonderland party favor package winner. While we’re back down the rabbit hole, I’ll also show you a Queen of Hearts Roses and Teacup grapevine wreath.
Back in June, during the Unbirthday Party Reveal I announced my first blog giveaway. New subscribers and existing followers who left a comment through Labor Day were registered to win.
First, welcome to all new followers of Debbee’s Buzz. I hope you’ll find it’s your cup of tea! And special thanks to all those who left comments over the summer. I love conversing with you!
Congratulations to Leanne Hlavka of Arizona, the lucky winner of the giveaway. The package includes all the same favors I gave my guests, including; a teacup fascinator, Mad Hatter hand-painted goblet, flamingo shopping bag, and vintage teacup filled with goodies. See them all at How to Make Whimsical Teacup Fascinators and Alice in Wonderland Table and Party Favors.
Although I have a number of Alice in Wonderland party stories still to write, I’ll be spacing them out — focusing on more seasonal topics. But, while we’re on the subject, here’s the grapevine wreath that welcomed guests to the Unbirthday Party.
My latest craft project was to create a Halloween witch wreath. Poor Hilda ran smack into my front door! In addition to an aspirin for a bad headache, she’s Gonna Need a New Broom.
It’s been pouring down rain the last few days, so I decided it was a good time to work on a few craft projects and fall wreath orders for my new Etsy shop, debbeesbuzzboutique.
After retiring from my job as a marketing consultant at Boeing, I launched Debbee’s Buzz at the end of October last year. My first post featured another witch wreath, Bewitching DIY Halloween Wreath. That was followed by, DIY Trick or Treat Halloween Wreath.
Since I only had a handful of followers at that time (mom, my sister, BFF…), I thought you might enjoy revisiting those two Halloween posts, along with my latest witch wreath project.
Hoping the trio of Halloween wreaths will inspire your own seasonal decorating.
To decorate for the rest of the summer season, I’ve created a refreshing garden wreath featuring watermelon and strawberries.
A large ant has invaded the garden and taken up residence on the large central leaf!
Not to worry, he’s harmless, and adds some humor to the scene. The ant is the reason I’ve named the garden wreath, Don’t Bug Me.
No DIY instructions to bore you with today. I’ve already provided how-to instructions on making a mesh wreath numerous times before. Check out Projects: Wreaths for tutorial posts and other decorative inspiration to make your own.
Come take a little tour of my garden…garden wreath that is!
Sharing a whimsical Uncle Sam wreath, in honor of our nation’s upcoming birthday.
In May, I created this custom, patriotic wreath order request for Kem. She is one of Debbee’s Buzz’s first followers, and already has several of my wreaths decorating her home. When she asked for a July 4th theme wreath, I was skeptical I’d be able to get it done between an out-of-town wedding and other commitments. Happily, the Uncle Sam wreath pedaled (via USPS) in time to decorate Kem’s Atlanta home for Memorial Weekend.
Normally, I have July 4th decorations up in time for Flag Day. But, right now my house is bedecked in Alice in Wonderland decorations for this weekend’s 4th annual My Favorite Things Party.
As you read this, my sister, college roommate and I are busily preparing for the vintage iced tea party. So, just a quick photo tour of the Uncle Sam wreath today. (more…)
