Rocking Chair REDO!!

I was given this cute wood rocking chair for my little one! She thinks it must be in the family room. So I made it match!


I just love how it turned out! Actually it was really easy too! I first sanded it down lightly. I then applied 2 applications of Kilz White Primer EVERYWHERE!! I sanded the edges and smoothed out the spray paint, rubbed my stain on everywhere! Wiped it off and let it sit and dry. Once dry I sanded it again to give it more of a vintage look! And HERE IT IS SO CUTE!!

Vintage Ribbon/lace Flowers

I LOVE how these flowers turned out! I did the same thing to both with 2 different kinds of ribbon! So much fun and Easy!!

All you need is:
Ribbon or lace
Hot glue gun
Hot glue
Alligator clip

Cut out of your felt a circle. Keep in mind your flower will be a little bigger than your circle.
Add hot glue to the edge and begin gluing your ribbon all the way around the outside of your circle.
Once your edges meet DO NOT CUT your ribbon just continue on the inside of where you just glued and keep going around and around until you get the the very center.

Add a button to the middle and glue your alligator clip on the back and you have a cute FLOWER!!
