I have been obsessed with the crochet flower ear warmers forever and they are so expensive at craft shows so I NEVER buy one even though they are SO CUTE!! I was ready to learn to crochet when I found out my husbands Aunt Lisa was a PRO at it and was willing to teach me the basics. She showed me how to chain and sl st but I went home confused and gave up. I have had this burst of motivation to try it again and I had forgotten everything Lisa had taught me but I went on youtube for a crochet flower once I found the one I liked I watched the video OVER AND OVER AND OVER this was my first EVER attempt at crocheting and IT CAME OUT PERFECT I made three (3 Strand Flower Headbands) a rose and an ear warmer on the first try!!! I was so excited to finish something and to go from clueless to oh I know all the terms and getting things done I am really proud of myself!! Here is the three strand flower headband I made and I even sewed a button to one end and instead of the ugly tie and tuck I can just button it up and it has no hanging strings and it is very comfy!!!

I have not posted any fun crafts in a while because I am a mommy first and a blogger second. I am very very very excited to share this tutorial with all of my readers who ever that might be ;) I was looking on Pintrest and there was this necklace that I thought was SO SIMPLE yet ELEGANT and BEAUTIFUL!!! It was called the Eternity Leaf Necklace and it was sold on Esty but I guess it is no longer for sale so I used my oh so creative noggin and made it MYSELF and with things I already had. This is the necklace I was inspired by:

I am really into wreaths right now and the materials are so expensive so here is my cheap way to make a beautiful wreath with glue,dollar store wreath that I taped and, coffee filters! all you do is fold coffee filter in half then again and glue to the wreath. I am not done with this one but I had to post up to show how beautiful it looks so for.

Well I HATE WINTER but you can't control the weather so I am slowly getting into the Christmas Spirit. I have been seeing a ton of DIY Christmas Decor on Pintrest and one I really liked was the Yarn Christmas Tree so I decided to do it myself and once again IT IS WITH THINGS I HAVE AROUND MY HOUSE and may take more time to complete then all the others shown online but mine costs nothing to make ;) Everyone is using styrofoam cones sold at craft stores but they cost SO MUCH and I was not willing to pay 3 dollars for a cone. I am not cheap I am frugal and would rather feed my children with money saved.I ran around my house thinking what I could use and then I saw a file folder I had never used and all I did was shape it into a tree shape and cut the bottom so it would stand then I taped it to stay that shape. I glued a piece of the yarn at the bottom of the tree and realized people use the Styrofoam because the yarn sticks to it but I was not going to give up so I hot glued the bottom rim of the tree and then just put fabric glue all around the tree so the yarn would stick. I LOVE how it came out and I can not wait to start decorating for the holidays!
