Monday


Let it snow...let it snow...let it snow!  This weekend we got 8 inches of white beauty!  I looks beautiful here in Woodland Hills.  I think the snow fairies sprinkle extra sparkle in our snow up here because our snow sparkles like it has been sprinkled with crystal dust!  

I have four projects I am working on this week that use lace dollies.  The first one I am posting is a simple easy project with a lace dollie and a scrap of wool.  The instructions are posted below.  I love the sparkle dust that shines when this is finished. 


Materials List

10" square of blue wool fabric
One 3" lace doily - White or Off White
Antique White Spray Paint
White Sparkle Glitter
Fabric Glue
Paint Brush

Frames Available at www.tweetledeedesignco.etsy.com 





Place doily on cardboard backing and spray with white spray paint until white and wet.  The spray paint stiffens the doily and helps the glitter stick.



Once the doily has been sprayed (only one side) you can place in the center of the blue wool square. 




Take a paint brush and dip in fabric glue.  Lightly touch tops and edges of the doily where you want extra amounts of the glitter to stick.


Get a small amount of glitter on your brush and tab onto fabric glue spots and use fingers to lightly sprinkle all over the "snowflake".  Let dry.

Once dry....stretch wool on a piece of backing (cardboard) that will fit in the size opening on your frame and place in opening.  Time to sit back and enjoy your one of a kind snowflake that will glisten all season long!  

Time for me to go and work on my second project....a set of burlap snowflake pillows for my front sofa.  I'll post tomorrow night!

All Joy,

Abby
