A Pretty Frugal Gift...
Here is a very frugal craft idea;
That makes a very sweet gift for you homemaker's!
These I have made for myself to place in my home.
I like to use them because they are so small and do not interfere with
My tabletops decor, or the use of the table.
I have placed a small lamp on them;
Draped them over a basket;
Placed a vintage bottle upon it!
Firstly, check out your fabric stores such as Joannes or any other;
Purchase a few of these small doilies, they come in small, medium or large.
The small ones run about $1.99
The price goes up with the larger sizes.
You can buy them in a few different colors;
For this project, may I suggest the white or cream color!
I did iron them to make them nice and flat;
(I love to iron)
My sister asked me why I iron everything?
I told her without missing a beat
~ was this~
Well, it's because some days it's the only thing I can control!
The wrinkles in my clothes;
Of course until I sit down (smile)
You can either glue on your little flowers or bows;
Or you can tack them on with needle and thread!
Some of the little flowers have a self stick glue,
But it does not hold for very long,
So you will need to still use one of these two methods!
Evenly space out your little Rose buds or the bows; or even buttons!
I remember years ago when making ones with little pearls on them,
I actually used material and beaded a flower pattern onto the material.
It was a lot of work;
That is why this project is easy and frugal
I gave these as gifts to my girlfriends last year for Valentines Day
I think these would also make a lovely hostess gift to give!
Also for a Bridal shower;
They are a frugal gift with just a pinch of homemade added to them...
Use your own imagination and make a few up to have a quick gift on hand!
Sometimes even the smallest little touch can make a home seem special!
It really is the little things we do in our homes, that make them comfy!
Remember, each day to do something that says
~I Love You~
