Welcome to my NEW BLOG!

For many years my projects could be found at my previous blog - www.fatcatcreations.blogspot.com. Since my business has evolved and is now known as Cindi McGee - Behind These Eyes™ instead of Cindi Bisson - Fat Cat Creations - I thought this was the perfect time to launch a new blog. Since I've been on this creative journey for over 16 years - I have a LOT of project links out there in cyberworld! If you are looking for a particular project you have found on Pinterest, Facebook, FaveCrafts, HomeTalk, Twitter, etc. and the link is not working for you, please feel free to email me at cdjb11@yahoo.com and I'll be sure to get you the new link to the instructions. Have a creative day and remember to DARE TO BE DIFFERENT!

Rustic Rudolph Burlap Wreath


In my Cindi's Simple Solutions article for When Creativity Knocks this week I'm sharing this Rustic Rudolph Burlap Wreath.  

I first saw a version of this adorable wreath on Pinterest - the one shown had red antlers made with those red glitter coated plastic "greens" you can get at the local chain craft stores now in any color of the rainbow.  Since I'm more of a "rustic" decorator - I went for the natural solution of tree branches for antlers!  But even I couldn't resist making a glittery red nose for him! 

Materials:

Instructions:



  1. Fold end of burlap garland in half.  Insert through inner ring of wire wreath frame.  Use wire to hold in place. 
  2. Push loop of burlap ribbon up through first inner ring space, then up through middle ring space, and the up through outer ring space.  Turn wreath over. 
  3. Push loops together.  Twist end of ribbon on outside ring, bring down and push back through bottom inner ring space, then up through middle and then up through outer, repeat until wreath is covered.
  4. Cut ribbon and use wire to tie in place on outer ring.
  5. Coat Smoothfoam™ ball with Diamond Glaze, pour red fine glitter to cover ball.  Let dry. 
  6. Coat glittered ball with second coat of Diamond Glaze.  
  7. Cut two branches for antlers. 
  8. Wire in place on back of wreath.  
  9. Use Tacky Glue to mount nose to bottom center of wreath. 
  10. Tie bow, wire to bottom center of wreath beneath nose. 
  11. Add wire loop at top center to hang wreath.
