How About A Creepy Halloween Wreath

Halloween Bloody Eyeballs
Ping Pong Ball Wreath


Who doesn't like a little something a little gory for Halloween.

The base of this wreath is a 14" straw wreath.  I wrapped the form with black duct tape for a couple of reasons.   It makes the wreath a little stronger and also I wanted a black background behind the eyes.

I used 80 or so ping pong balls that were individually glued to the wreath.  I added googly eyes to each of the ping pong balls.   To enhance the look of the wreath I used red acrylic paint and splattered it all over the ping pong balls.  

The completed wreath measures about 18" wide and 5" deep.  I did add a small hanging loop to the back of the wreath.

The Beautiful Colors of Fall Captured in a Deco Mesh Wreath

Fall Colors Apple Orchard
Deco Mesh Sunburst Wreath

I absolutely love the bright, warm, vivid colors of fall. Unfortunately I live in South Louisiana so we really don't notice the color of the seasons other than green to brown. But, I still love the colors.

The base of this wreath is a 12" wire wreath form. I used 5 different Fall Colored Deco Mesh: Browns, Reds, Oranges, Golds, and Moss Greens. I also included a beautiful plaid Fall Ribbon.

I added a wood Apple Orchard sign to the center of the wreath to bring it all together.

The completed wreath measures about 25" wide and 10" deep.

This is the perfect wreath to keep up through the Fall Season.

Baby Winnie The Pooh Yarn Wreath

Custom Baby Winnie The Pooh Yarn Wreath

I recently received a request to make a wreath for a Baby Winnie The Pooh Themed Nursery for a baby girl.  I was told the colors were various pastels and the babies name would be Hannah.
This is my creation!

I used a 16" styrofoam wreath form that I wrapped with a multicolored pastel yarn I found at Michaels.  I then used my Silhouette to cut the letters out of pink fabric.  (I was even able to find and download an actual Walt Disney Font)
The Baby Winnie The Pooh was printed on white cotton fabric and attached to a piece of white felt along with the name.

To add a little something extra I made mini pom poms in similar colors as the yarn used to wrap the wreath.

Overall I am quite pleased with the way it turned out.

I am always accepting custom order requests via email at neworelanscraftsbydesign@gmail.com or you can use the contact form on the left hand side of the page for more information.

Nautical It's A Boy Yarn Wreath

It's A Boy Welcome Aboard Nautical Yarn Wreath

A new take on my popular Nautical Wreath. Thanks to a great customer I was able to make an addition of It's A Boy to this already beautiful Nautical Wreath.

This wreath is available in 12", 14" and 16" Diameters. (distance from side to side)

The base of each wreath is styrofoam that is wrapped tightly with Navy Blue Yarn and White Yarn. Hemp accents are added to give the wreath more of Life Preserver look.

***The photo came out a little dark but I assure you the yarn is navy blue***

"Welcome Aboard" letters are hand painted wooden letters that are securely attached to the wreath.

For the center of the wreath I used a piece of large white felt that is attached to the back of the wreath itself. The anchor is cut out of navy blue cotton fabric and the It's A Boy is cut from a blue nautical knot print cotton fabric.

Cajun Decor Reverse Decoupage Platter with Newspaper Print and Crawfish Fleur-De-Lis

Cajun Decor Reverse Decoupage Platter

Louisiana Cajun Decor Newspaper Print Reverse Decoupage Platter with Crawfish Fleur De Lis.

My first attempt at making a decorative platter was for my sister. She saw one that she like in a local gift shop and fell in love with the general idea and instead of buying it...she asked me if I could make something similar. After doing a little research I decided to give it a shot. This is my finished product.

I started with an 8x14 Clear Glass Rectangle Platter that is 1/8" thick.

I first made the fleur-de-lis with my Silhouette. I inserted an image of a crawfish boil into the fleur-de-lis to make this intriguing design. It was then attached to the back of the platter.

I then tore strips of newspaper and completely covered the back of the platter. Each platter will be made to order so the actual newspaper print will vary slightly.

Once the decoupage was complete I painted the back of the platter white and applied several coats of clear acrylic sealer.

The design is placed on the back of the platter so it is not only beautiful to put on display...it is also functional. The top glass of the platter has not been altered in any way. That being said, it is decoupage so it is not dishwasher safe and should not be submerged in water. The top can be cleaned with a damp cloth.

I love his design and style and plan to add more to my shop in the coming weeks.






 

Cleveland Indians Deco Mesh Baseball Wreath

Cleveland Indians Deco Mesh Baseball Wreath

I have family and friends in Cleveland and they requested that I make them an Indians Wreath.  They said to make sure Chief Wahoo was on the wreath with baseballs and bats. This was my creation.  I ended up making a total of 3 of these wreaths.

I use a 14" wire wreath form with red deco mesh and navy blue deco mesh. Chief Wahoo was printed with my laser printer then attached to stiff felt and sealed. I then painted a round wooden plaque to attach the image to and added it to the center of the wreath.

I found the wooden baseballs at my local Hobby Lobby as well as the small wooden bat.  The balls were ready to use but I painted the bat to correspond with the team colors.
