Where have these sisters been all my life?
I found them a bit ago when they USED to link up to my Get Your Craft On………but I haven’t seen them lately…….or at least I don’t think I have. They’re good. Real good!
They love a fake topiary almost as much as I do. Except they have the patience of a saint with the projects I’m seeing on their blog. I made ONE gumdrop tree before I swore I would never make another one………then someone suggested I use a thimble next time. DOH! But still…….I really don’t think I’d have the endurance to do 7 of them. Oh how I love a topiary! I LOVE how they used the jars. And those striped dowels………seriously….the prep…….the attention to detail is amazing.
When you visit their blog, you see their love for bird houses. But why not embellish them a bit more? Using scrapbooking paper and paint, they created their own Halloween Village. Amazing. Why buy Halloween decorations when you can create original ones for less? And a lot more fun. You probably have an old wreath somewhere in your house. Something with flowers on it would work best. Grab that black spray paint and go to town. They kicked it up a notch by making their own beady eyes from ping pong balls they bought at The Dollar store. Add a few fake spiders and you’ve got yourself a Halloween Master Piece! Genius sisters. Is there anything these sisters CAN’T do? She just got done remodeling her son’s bedroom……….Pottery Barn Style. She shares step by step of her decorating process with you. We love that. They also recover furniture. Like these foot stools.
WOW! I didn’t see that coming. Those are gorgeous!
Remember their love for anything topiary? Well if you’re going to have a fake topiary, then you’ve got to have a fake “old” planter. With their tutorial, you’ll be tricking everyone.
Those turned out amazing……I am so jealous. These look better than the ones you buy. I love the braided twigs. Brilliant……..again.
They’ve got another great tutorial on this pillow below……..the tree is hand stitched, the flowers were from a curtain……..
How ya feelin? Talented? Crafty? Yea……..me either. Inspired? YOU BET!
Anyone who creates with burlap has my heart. And don’t be fooled with those stripes. It’s not from an old potato sack…….they actually painted those on. If you’re not completely worn out from all the stuff they do………take your last bits of energy and head on over to their blog. Please leave them a comment letting them know I featured them. (remember, I never let people know ahead of time. I let you guys do the surprising!)
