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. 

Spring Wrath. Share NOW. #wreath, #springdecor, #wreaths, #eclecticredbarn, #decor,#dollaretree

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

Spring Wrath. Share NOW. #wreath, #springdecor, #wreaths, #eclecticredbarn, #decor,#dollaretree

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.

Spring Wrath. Share NOW. #wreath, #springdecor, #wreaths, #eclecticredbarn, #decor,#dollaretree

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.
Spring Wrath. Share NOW. #wreath, #springdecor, #wreaths, #eclecticredbarn, #decor,#dollaretree

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.

Spring Wrath. Share NOW. #wreath, #springdecor, #wreaths, #eclecticredbarn, #decor,#dollaretree


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

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.

Winter Changes on You Are The Star

Winter Changes on You Are The Star

Happy Monday! I hope you had a great weekend. Ours was not so great because it rained the entire weekend. I haven't seen that much rain since hurricane season. On top of all the rain, it was cold. It has been a strange winter here in central Florida.

Have a great week ahead.

St Patrick's Day Ideas on HIH

St Patrick's Day Ideas on HIH

Happy Sunday! I hope your weekend is so far.  My daughter and I went to a Vintage fashion show on Saturday. This lady had an exquisite collection of dresses from the 1920s to the 1960s. They were amazing. They had lovely trays of tea sandwiches and desserts. They also had baskets for the silent auction. My daughter won a lovely one all about lemons. 

If you missed last week's party, you can check it out here. As always, y'all make it difficult to choose only five happily homemade items! Keep 'em coming because I love looking at what you share each week. Let's check out this week's features!

Valentine Sweets on TFT

Welcome to Thursday Favorite Things Party


Thursday Favorite Things. Share NOW. #linkyparty. #TFT #thursdaayfavoritethings #eclecticredbarn

Happy Thursday dear friends.  With Valentine's Day fast approaching, I thought I would choose so sweets for the party this week. What's Valentine's Day without some kind of sweets. At least that's my take on it. Hope you find some inspiration or you can just drool over these, like I am.

Enjoy your upcoming weekend.

Valentine Heart Favors

Valentine Heart Favors

These cute little heart favors are easy to put together. Mom usually gives a little something to a few of your best friends. They give each other small and inexpensive gifts.

I had some light and dark pink felt and thought some hearts would be the perfect gift. I was going to make them a stuffed Valentine heart and then decided to make them so we could put some candy in them. 


Valentine Favors. Share NOW. #Valentine, #valentinefavors, #eclecticredbarn, #valentinedecor

I cut out a heart on some paper and used that for my pattern.  I had some Valentine supplies to decorate the hearts with. I got them from the Dollar Tree last year.  The stickers have backing on them so they stuck to the felt. I also used some pink pipe cleaners. 

Valentine Favors. Share NOW. #Valentine, #valentinefavors, #eclecticredbarn, #valentinedecor

I used a blanket stitch around the heart, leaving the top open.  On one of them, I used a running stitch, but liked the blanket stitch better. 
Either one works or you could even glue them closed. 

Valentine Favors. Share NOW. #Valentine, #valentinefavors, #eclecticredbarn, #valentinedecor

Once I had stitched them closed, I hot glued the pipe cleaners to each side of the heart.  If you don't have any pipe cleaners, you could always use some ribbon.

Now it was time to add the candy. We found lollipop and smarties at the Dollar Tree. She had some Dove heart chocolates. We also had a bag of mixed Hersey mini chocolates. 

Valentine Favors. Share NOW. #Valentine, #valentinefavors, #eclecticredbarn, #valentinedecor

We took them around to her neighbors and if they were not home, we hung them on the door knob. 

These would be great as favors on a table or for kids to give other students. A little something to give.

Garden Ideas on You Are the Star

Garden Ideas on You Are the Star

Well to February. Can you believe it? January seemed to go by so fast. I actually planted some vegetables in the garden on Sunday. I spent Saturday getting my beds ready and then we went to buy plants. I did the usual plants but this year I put in some celery plants that I saw. I have never planted celery before so I am hoping it does well. 

I know for those who are up north, you can't think about planting but here in the south, it is time. The citrus trees are all blooming and have baby fruit on them. Spring is in the air down here.

I hope you have a great week ahead.
