Welcome to Happiness is Homemade! I’m Allyson, your newest co-host, and I’ll be selecting the features for the month of May.
Everyone shared so many wonderful home decor, diy, recipe, and craft posts last week! After much deliberation, I’m featuring creative handmade craft ideas this week.
I will also choose a weekly bonus feature throughout each month, so check in with me each week to see if you are one of my bonus faves.
THIS WEEK’S HANDMADE CRAFT FEATURES!
Before we get to the party…. Do you still need a Mother’s Day gift? Hop over to download my Mother’s Day free printable for the perfect solution. Simply place print in a frame and you have a beautiful gift!
FEATURED CREATIVE HANDMADE CRAFT IDEAS
Jenna, from The Painted Apron, upcycled a plastic canister by crafting it in the most amazing way just by using paper and paint. What a gorgeous color combination! She changed her canister from, as she says, “blah to awe!”
Debbee, from Debbees Buzz, hand painted champagne flutes with tropical birds for a wedding gift. I’m sure her gift recipient was thrilled with her artistic talent. Follow her tutorial to see how easily you can hand paint your own glasses!
Last week, Haekelfieber-Austria shared her crocheted chili peppers with us from her “Big Food Series.” These colorful crocheted veggies are absolutely adorable! Follow her series posts as she shares the patterns to make these crafted cuties.
Marsha, from The Little Yellow Corner Store, showed us her collection of seasonal porch decor. Her “bees and sunflowers” themed decor she uses for spring really caught my eye. I’m in love with her creative sunflower pillow!
Ann, from The Apple Street Cottage, has the perfect craft for us to make for the special women in our lives for Mother’s Day ~ Homemade Lavender Soap. I can smell the lavender by just looking at her photo, and check out that beautiful gift presentation!
ALLYSON’S WEEKLY BONUS FEATURE!
Janet, from A Life of Balance, teaches us how to style tiered trays. She also shows off her many themed trays she has created for holidays and seasons. They are all so festive with cute decor, but I think my favorite is the strawberry theme ~ super cute!
