Mini paper flower wreath

This little mini wreath is a perfect desk accessory to brighten up your office through those dark winter months. Its small size is great for bookshelves, bulletin boards, or anywhere else you need a little color. Don’t have the sweet treats cartridge or a cricut machine? Find some floral paper punches you love and create your own version!

You need the following tools and supplies to create this wreath:

Cut the flowers using the Sweet Treats cartridge at the following sizes: Flower 1 and 5 at 2″ and Flowers 2,3 and 4 at 1.5″.  For Flower 1, punch two circles per flower at .75″ and 1″ with circle punches.  For Flower 2, cut the centers from the cartridge at 1.5″.  For Flower 3, punch a circle at .75″.  For Flower 4, cut the center from the cartridge at 1.5″.  For Flower 5, cut the center from the cartridge at 2″ and punch a circle at 1″.  Run the flower centers through the Cuttlebug machine to emboss.  Put all of the flowers together and adhere to the wire wreath form with hot glue.

This wreath was my first attempt at using the Cricut paper flowers.  I am thrilled with the results and now am a little obsessed with the process.  So many variations and color ways.  The possibilities are endless!  By the way, my mother has displayed it amongst her pressed glass bowls on her sideboard.  Perfect!

Bottle Cap Crafts

Since my husband likes to try his hand at beer brewing, we tend to have a lot of bottle caps sitting around in our house, perfect for all sorts of crafty crafts! They make for all sorts of jumping off points for projects, whether they are new, unused or recycled caps, metal or plastic, it’s worth saving them to keep around for when inspiration strikes! Here are a few of my favorite bottle cap crafts!

Minion Toilet Paper Roll Craft - Crafty Morining

Minion Toilet Paper Roll CraftCrafty Morning

My kids are a little bit obsessed with a certain movie filled with silly yellow minions so this, this is going to be just about the coolest craft I could introduce them to. In fact, I think I might be mother of the year in their eyes over this craft. And who can blame them, so freaking adorable! And what a clever use of the humble plastic bottle cap. Score!

Bottle Cap Candles - Draft MagazineBottle Cap CandlesDraft Magazine

While these bottle cap candles are certainly cute little things, but they are also super handy! We keep a few of them in the car, in our bags and in various drawers around the house, idea little lights for a sudden power outage. They also make fun, ambiant light for a rustic themed dinner and are quick and simple to make. So clever!
