St. Patrick’s Day Door Hanger DIY

• Head over to Michaels, Joann or Hobby Lobby for the pieces of this project. The beard and shamrocks were found in-store.

• You can always cut out your own beard and your own shamrocks from cardstock allowing for better variation! Use cookie cutters for the shamrock templates if you decide to cut your own!

• The shamrocks are stacked on top of one another with pipe-cleaners in between to allow you to adhere the shamrocks to the door hanger and have all the shamrock seen. If you try and attach the shamrocks directly to the ruler, hat, beard, etc., most of the shamrock will be hidden by the attachment.

• This is a fast project, and yes, it is all done on the back of a ruler!

Glitter Mardi Gras Mask Wreath Tutorial


That is the same wreath in the photo(s) above. I just placed it in different areas, some dark, some light, to show how the light and dark effects the look of the wreath. In person, it is simply stunning (truly).

Here are some other DIY Tulle wreaths you may want to make:

First things first: sign up for my weekly newsletter! You get a free downloadable e-cookbook when you confirm your newsletter sign-up!

Notes:

• Tulle is significantly more difficult to work with than a cotton material. Keep that in mind when making this wreath.

• You want your wreath nice and full. If you skimp, you cannot hide it. So, make sure your tulle is nice and full!

• Sequin glitter tulle sheds. A lot. With that in mind, I strongly suggest you cover your work surface with a towel (or it will look like a glitter-bomb went off in your house).

• We used pipe cleaners for some texture. You could substitute feathers!

• For this wreath, we used purple and gold with a green bead and pipe cleaner accent and black mask. You do not have to use the colors as shown. Mardi Gras colors are green, purple, black, and gold, so mix and match according to your preference. Break it down like this:

2 colors tulle
1 color pipe cleaner + beads
1 color mask

• If you want the same look we did, follow the color scheme used. If you want a different look, go for it! Your best bet is to start with your mask choice, and then match the colors to that (tulle rolls are easy to find). Just remember this is a sparkling tulle wreath, so make sure one of your tulle colors glitters with sequins.

• There are several ways to do the tulle color grouping on this wreath – two alike knot colors, three alike knot colors, etc. and repeat. Ultimately, after playing around and experimenting, this wreath was created with alternating tulle knots meaning one gold, one purple, one gold, one purple (etc until finished).

Glitter Mardi Gras Mask Wreath Tutorial Materials:

14″ Wire Wreath Frame
• Mask
• 1 chopstick or pencil
• 8 Green Pipecleaners
• Scissors
• Mardi Gras Beads
• 25 yards Purple Tulle (1 roll, 6″)
• 25 yards Gold Sparkle Tulle (with sequins, this may not be available in a 25 yard roll at your local fabric store, so buy as many rolls as you need to make 25 yards, 6″)
Glue Gun and Hot Glue (optional)

Glitter Mardi Gras Mask Wreath Tutorial Directions:

• Cut tulle into 5″ strips. You will get 180 strips per 25-yard roll.
• Using the 6″ side of the tulle, tie a square knot (left over right and under, right over left and under) around one of the frame times.

• Every other tie is a different color. You are alternating colors for this one. Leave the second outer row of the wreath frame empty for beads, pipe cleaners, and mask attachment.
• Push together after each knot.
• Use all 720 strips. Your wreath will be nice and full, but not squished.
• Wrap your pipe cleaners around a chopstick or a pencil to form spirals.
• Twist around the frame, and allow the curly ends to poke out through the tulle.

• Clip the ends of the beads (where the necklace meets) using scissors (to form a long strand and not a necklace). You can twist the clipped ends around the frame allowing the beads to swag down a bit. They will secure like a twist-tie would. You can use a dab of hot glue to secure in place if you like.
• Tie the mask to the frame. The mask should have ribbons on it making it simple to secure. You can dab with a bit of hot glue to hold in place.

How’s this for a super cute, unique candle idea? The bonus is it is a soy candle, so no build up on the walls or ceiling. I absolutely adore soy candles. They are my go-to candle when buying, and now when making.

• 2 cups Soy Wax
• 1 Candlewick
• Large Nonstick Pot
Measuring Cup
Measuring Spoons
• Wooden Spoon
• Chopstick or Wood Stick or Pencil

Homemade Autumn Spice Soy Candles Directions:

• Place your candlewick in a teacup.
• To hold the candlewick in place, wrap the top around a pencil or chopstick.
• Place the stick over the teacup and let the bottom of it drop to the bottom. A weighted candlewick does this nicely and settles on its own.

• Begin by heating the soy wax flakes on low heat right on your stove top. It is best to use a non stick pot to help avoid burning and sticking.
• Continue to stir the soy candle flakes as they slowly melt. Be sure to keep the liquid moving so it does not stick or clump.

• Note: if microwaving, microwave in 30-60 second bursts stirring before setting the next time. This particular formula is best done on the stove, but you can make adjustments if you want to microwave.

DO NOT use food coloring to color your candle. It will clump and not mix. Instead, use a brown or tan crayon to color the soy wax. Peel the crayon so as no wrapper remains, and then break then break the crayons into small pieces. Drop the pieces into the soy candle mixture and stir well until completely dissolved.
• Add the apple pie spice, nutmeg and cinnamon; continue to stir well.
• Add half of the cloves; continue to stir well. Note: you can add all the cloves at once if you like. In this tutorial half are held back for visual appeal.
• The color of the wax may darken, but that is fine and expected.

• Return your candle to the cool room to finish setting. It may take 4 hours until your candle is completely set.
