You never cease to amaze!

You have a beautifully decorated home...and MAN, can you throw a party or what!?

Heidi said...

gorgeous! did you use your silhouette for any of it? :)

Chelsea said...

But of course! The butterflies were cut out with the silhouette and the banner was made with a downloadable graphic from dandee designs.

So cute! I love it! I just remembered Joann opens tomorrow/today in bhc! What do I need to make one? :)

Chelsea said...

Um, excuse me Hill, but you had a baby less than a week ago. Are you going to venture out for a craft project already?

What you need:

Wreath of whatever size you'd like
sheet moss - 1 pkg
1 skein of yarn
hot glue gun
doilies - fabric or paper. I used fabric. Michael's has a large fabric doily in their $1 section right now. JoAnn might, too.

printable 'hello' from Dandee-Designs.
inspiration for wreath from Under the Sycamore.

I used my Silhouette to cut out the butterflies. I attached them with hot glue and some toothpicks/wire.

I printed the sign on kraft colored card stock (which gave it that nice rich red) and just cut it out by hand. I attached it with some hot glue and toothpicks.

okay so i'm throwing two baby showers and a bridal shower (for three separate people) in may so i had to go back and obsess over your cute shower again.

how did you print on the doilies for the invites?
