You're The Star - Home Feature Week

Good Morning friends. I hope you had a great weekend. Ours was wonderful. The weather was perfect - sunny and around 75 degrees. I worked outside in my garden and dug up some plants and separated them and replanted. 

I hope you have a wonderful week ahead.

Shamrocks and Bunnies on HIH

Shamrocks and Bunnies on HIH

Welcome to Happiness Is Homemade #520. I hope your weekend is going well. Ours is very sunny although not to warm. I am rally looking forward to some 80 degree days. Supposedly, we will have some mid week coming up. I can't wait. 

I got out the rest of my Easter decorations today and I am still struggling with how to work around my St. Patrick's Day decor.  Are you having that problem? 

We did it picking this weeks features so some for Easter and some for St. Patrick's Day. Hope you like them.

If you missed last week's party, you can check it out here.

This Week's Features

Our own Linda of A Labour of Life shared an adorable DIY St. Patrick's Day pom pom garland that's perfect to decorate your mantle. You can use this tutorial for any holiday. Just change up the colors you use, and you could have an Easter decoration as well!

McDonald's serves a shamrock shake for St. Patrick's Day, and Jen of Cincy Shopper made a copycat shake that looks so delicious! Making your own shakes at home can save you money, and it allows you to customize them with those adorable shamrock sprinkles.

I've been obsessed with finding a small basket to hang on my coffee bar shelf, so when I saw this Easter door basket made by Nicolle at Our Tiny Nest, I fell in love! In her tutorial she shares how to make the fabric carrots as well as a few tips for putting together a pretty basket, so be sure to check it out.

These pedestal birdhouses were transformed into beautiful spring decor by Donna over at An Organized Season. She saw some similar ones while out at an antique show, and her transformation using birdhouses and candlesticks turned out right on par with those! I would love to recreate them for my own spring decor.

Emily of Hunny I'm Home shared how to make beautiful floral farmhouse eggs that won't stain your fingers and you never have to refrigerate. They are easy to make and will look beautiful inside baskets in Easter vignettes!

Thank you for joining us this week. We're happy you're here to share your latest posts and to check out the amazing ideas shared by other lovely bloggers!

Be sure to visit all of the link party's hostesses! We love when you stop by!

Dollar Tree Spring Wreath

Dollar Tree Spring Wreath

Since I am anxiously waiting for spring so I decided to make a spring wreath. I wanted it for my back door since we come in that door all the time. I also could not be too fat, since we have a screen door and it would squash it.

I saw these wooden bead wreaths at Dollar Tree and thought this would be perfect. Next, I had to get some sullies for it.

I found pink and purple ribbon and some flowers. I choose ones that were small in design since the wooden wreath was not large. 

The first thing I did was to separate all of the flowers. I used a pair of snips to do this. I used two dark purple, one light purple and two pink  flowers for each set. I wrapped each set with twine to hold them together.

Once I had each set done, I used some more twine to join both sets together. I cut off any extra stems that I didn't need so it would ly flat.

I attached the flowers to the beaded wreath form. I used twine to tie the flowers onto the back of the beaded form.

Finally, I made a bow using the two ribbons. However, they looked better in the package than when I took it off the roll. They were very sheer and you could not tell the difference in their color, but I had already bought it and used it anyway. I tried several other ribbons with them, but nothing worked.

Maybe at some point I will change the ribbon out, but for now, it's good. I like it.

St. Patrick vs Easter Decor on Wonderful Wednesday Blog Hop

Welcome to the party. So glad you stopped by. I am struggling with having St. Patrick versus Easter decor out. Those holidays are only 2 weeks apart. I don't have as much for St, Paddy's Day as I have for Easter. I put Easter wreaths on the door but I am still trying to decide. Are you doing St. Patrick's Day or Easter now?

We have some great features for you this week, I hope you check them out. Please link up your wonderful posts.
