What you will need

you want to start by sewing the two heart-shaped felt pieces together leaving an opening to put the poly-fil in.

Once you have the majority of the shape sewn and a small portion left open. Begin placing stuffing into the shape to your liking. Place the wooden dowel inside then finish sewing the shape closed. The video below also goes over how to make these step-by-step.

The last step would be to add your embellishments to your shape and then you are done. These fairy-wands are fun and easy to make. They can be made in many shapes and sizes, with different embellishments and ribbons.

Cricut Easy Press 2 Demo!

Cricut Easy Press 2

Hello Everyone,

This is the second part to the unboxing video we did on Tuesday. I have to say I am in love with this thing. I am like so upset I was being cheap before and didn’t purchase it. This is going to cut my work time in half and allow me to complete more projects in a shorter amount of time. This “Yaaas Queen” shirt I made is for my daughter. It came out just as I envisioned it. Also, when she came home from school she absolutely loves it. The next project I will be working on will be some custom hairbows. I absolutely recommend getting this if you 1, have no room for a professional press or 2, don’t want to pay for it. This is the way to go. And you can travel with it if need be. Watch the video below to see how it works.

Circut 12×10 Easy Press 2 Unboxing

Circut 12×10 Easy Press 2

Hello Everyone,

Ever since I purchased my Silhouette Cameo I have been wanting a heat press. As some of you may know I’m cheap, lol! So the reality of me getting one was slim to none unless someone was buying it for me. I came across this Easy Press for HTV on Amazon it took me months before I decided to buy it, 1. because, well again. I’m cheap. Then I wanted to see how well the product worked and its ease of use. So after watching several reviews and not getting it for Christmas. I went ahead and got it for myself as a gift. I am really excited and can’t wait to use it. Which if you watched the video below. You know I will be doing a demo on my Youtube channel. I think it will be a great asset to my home business as well as personal use.

DIY Holiday Decorative Wine Glasses!

What you need:

  • Wine Glasses
  • Hot glue or glue suitable for glasses
  • Decorations
  • Yarn, Glitter or Paint

You want to first start by adding the string to the base of the glass and continue adding until you are satisfied. If you are using glitter or paint you want to do the same thing. Just add the glitter or the paint to the base of the glass to your liking.

Next, add leaves, flowers, rhinestones or whatever you may be decorating your glass with. You can add your decorations to the butt of the glass as I did or you can decorate the main base of the glass. It’s all to your liking.

This is the second glass I decorated. In this one, I put stars on the main part of the glass instead of the butt like I did in the first one. The video does show you how I did it all step by step.

Make sure you share your photos and your glass decorating ideas with me.

Yarn Pom Pom Spiders & Tassel Ghost Tutorial

Hello Everyone,

I am so far behind on putting up Halloween decorations. Life has gotten in the way of me doing all my diy’s. However, today I was in the mood to gather myself together and make some cute little yarn pom-pom spiders and tassel ghosts. Not only was this a stress reliever for me I know my kids will have fun making them too. Below is a step by step tutorial and video on how I made this cute little Halloween garland.

~Nika xoxo

I started by making a template out of some cardboard and my circle template. Make 2 circles you will see why in the video. Afterwards, I made a smaller circle on the inside of the bigger circles. Cut that out and made a slit at the top of each circle so that I could wrap the yarn as shown above. After wrapping around the yarn twice for a more poofy pom-pom I slid my scissors in between the 2 cardboard pieces and cut. Before pulling the yarn off I took another piece of string, slid it in between the two circles and tie a knot. Once that is tied you may then pull the 2 circles away from the yarn. The video below shows how to complete the pom-pom spiders by trimming and placing the googly eyes and legs on.

For the tassels, I wrapped the yarn around a piece of cardboard until I achieved the look I was going for. Then I cut the end of one side of the yarn and slowly slid the yarn away from the cardboard. Once I had it off I tied a piece of string around the top, tied a knot so that it looks like the head of a ghost. Once that was complete I drew eyes and a nose with a sharpie.
