Upcycled Plaid Scarf Wreath

December 06, 2022 1 Comments
Here in Washington, the snow has really been snowing! So I decided that I needed a new winter wreath. I browsed Pinterest for some inspiration, and I found several cute scarf wreaths. My favorite was a pin for a green plaid scarf wreath that was also upcycled, and I also was inspired by a pin for holiday wreath that has different plaid fabrics. Why haven't I heard of scarf wreaths before!?!  Ideally, I would have liked to use a crochet or knit scarf to make a scarf wreath like in the pin I found for a super quick knit scarf wreath. But I when I started this project, I couldn't think of a scarf that I've already made that would be good for this project... But just now while I'm typing this, I thought of a denim knit scarf I made years ago that would've been perfect for this. I think it's in my closet somewhere, so when I find it, I might make another scarf wreath. 😁 Anyhoo, I decided to upcycle a plaid dress my daughter outgrew awhile ago for this project.

Christmas Gnome Scarf

Yes, I'm back with ANOTHER gnome scarf! 😆 I absolutely LOVE the Fall Gnome Scarf pattern by Heidi Yates/Snappy Tots, so after making a Fall Gnome Scarf just like the original pattern, I decided to change it up to create a Halloween Gnome Scarf. And Since Christmas is next month, I couldn't resist creating a couple Christmas Gnome Scarves! No, I couldn't make just one... I had to make two!

Easy Upcycled Crochet Christmas Ornaments

November 01, 2022 20 Comments
Christmas is fastly approaching, so I figured it was time to get to work on some ornaments to add to my Seattle Seahawks themed Christmas tree. I usually buy a few new ornaments, but this time I thought it would be more eco friendly to create some new ornaments by upcycling some old ornaments that have lost their shine. I wanted to find a way to bring new life to some old ornaments that I haven't used in years, so I searched Pinterest and found a pin for a quick and easy way to upcycle ornaments with crochet. Since I have a Seahawks themed Christmas tree, I grabbed some blue and green yarn and a crochet hook and got to work!

Halloween Gnome Scarf

Welcome to the Halloween Crafts & Decor Blog Hop! This month my blog friends and I are sharing crafty Halloween creations and Halloween decor. Last month, I shared a Fall Gnome Scarf for the  Fall Crafts & Decor Blog Hop, and I enjoyed making that project so much that I decided to use the same pattern (Fall Gnome Scarf pattern by Heidi Yates/Snappy Tots) to make another gnome scarf but with Halloween colors.

Pencil Pillow Redo

October 04, 2022 13 Comments
Welcome to the October Sustainable Pinterest Challenge! This month's theme is Zero Waste, and I thought this would be a great time to remake a pencil pillow that I made back in 2017. Since the theme is Zero Waste, I unraveled the yarn I used to make the original pillow and reused it and the bolster pillow form that was inside the pillow to create a new pillow. I usually would just throw the yarn away and totally start over, but it is best to reuse things when you can. I originally crocheted the pillow, and over the years it had some wear and a coffee stain (I washed it to remove the stain).  I saw a pin for a super cute knit Pencil Pillow on Pinterest, but since my knitting skills are very very basic, I decided to use my circular knitting machine.

Fall Gnome Scarf

Recently while I was scrolling through Facebook, I saw a really cute gnome scarf. It was a post in the Snappy Tots crochet group I'm in, and as soon as I saw it, I knew it would be the perfect project for this month's Fall Crafts & Decor Blog Hop. So I purchased the Fall Gnome Scarf pattern by Heidi Yates/Snappy Tots, and I searched through my yarn stash for the perfect colors.
