Spring Wreath Using Burlap & Denim

Spring Wreath Using Burlap and Denim

I've been reworking some of my old wreaths and when I came across this burlap squares wreath, I thought it would be perfect to use for the March Craft Challenge that challenges crafters to make something using an old pair of jeans. The rosettes and the the little bird are made from old, worn out jeans.

Burlap & Hearts Candle Wraps

Burlap and Heart Candle Wraps for Valentine's Day

From North of the Boulevard~

This Valentine's Day project could not be any easier! Adding a burlap wrap to flameless pillar candles, along with a few hearts took these candles from plain to pretty. This project took about ten minutes to put together and part of that time was just waiting on my glue gun to heat up. You can make a similar one with only a few items.

It's Beginning To Look...


From North of the Boulevard~

November 1st means it's time to get serious about Christmas Shopping! I've been doing some shopping since September, but some people in my family are procrastinators in making wish lists. I'll be giving gifts to loved ones who range in age from 1 to 85, so there are lots of different stores I'll need to visit.

Picture Frames With Burlap

Framed Burlap for quickly changing photos


From North of the Boulevard~

I love displaying photographs of my family throughout my home. Finding new ways to do that can be fun. Last year I put together a staircase gallery wall that gives me a way to display lots of my favorites. Having three grandchildren means I have a lot of photos. I love that I can have digital copies of them, but I like having the actual photo of many of them as well. I wanted a spot that I could place updated photos that I could change frequently. The solution was to use open frames, giving me easy access to change the pictures.

Autumn Word Printable & Making Your Own






From North of the Boulevard~

I love the look of canvas wall art, but sometimes I don't love the price. After spotting several while out shopping a few days ago, I decided to try my hand at making printables on burlap for a few of them that I really liked.

It's Close Enough to Fall for Me! Fall Mantel

Fall mantel decor

From North of the Boulevard~

After spending last week working on various projects for my fall mantel decor, I've put all the pieces together and I'm pretty happy with how it came together. I love the colors of fall. The oranges, browns, deep reds and greens all give out such warmth. Warmth is not something we are lacking right now, but when the first cool breeze of fall arrives, I'll be ready to welcome it with my fall mantel and fireplace.

Bows Are Easy!


From North of the Boulevard~


A little pop of color can make all the difference. Taking a grapevine wreath from bland to eye catching was the goal I set. I was trying to decide on decor for my autumn mantel and I knew I wanted to use this grapevine wreath. Deciding how to take the look up a few notches  was the fun part. I've mentioned bow making a couple of times in earlier posts, but haven't given my own step by step directions.  Time to change that.

Quick and Easy Pumpkin Make Over



From North of the Boulevard~
Fake pumpkins are ready for harvesting at any and all stores! I picked up an off white pumpkin a couple of days ago, planning to use it on my mantel. Once I placed it there, it looked a little drab. It needed some perking up! I could have painted it. I could have stenciled an initial on it. Or, I could use some chevron burlap ribbon that I bought not knowing when it might come in handy.
