I hope everyone is having a great weekend! I'm excited because my awesome sister, Maggie, is up visiting me all weekend...and it's her birthday!! Since I still had my Christmas wreath up, (don't judge me...) I decided to make Maggie a special wreath so she'd know how excited I was to see her this weekend. And the Vintage Happy Birthday Wreath was born.
I borrowed both frames from other projects...The big one is the frame I used in my Framed Yarn and Lace Heart Wreath that I originally got at an antique store. The small one is one I painted to frame some Curly Girl Designs cards I love. Since neither frames were currently hanging, I figured I could borrow them.
Then I just cut out some letters from an old vintage sheet (the coral floral fabric) and used fabric glue to stick them onto a white oval of fabric and stuck it in the frame. Then I whipped up a couple of tiny buntings with the vintage sheet and some other fabrics and lace I had on hand. The corner looked a little bare so I made the bow using my speedy hot glue technique that I also used for these bows that I promise I'll share with you at some point.
Even though it's for a birthday, I think it'd be cute anywhere, any time really. I need about 10 more of those white and gold frames...love it.
Hope you like it!!
So while I was making the wreath last night, Mr. Lovie was making this awesome thing.
This Killer Peanut Butter Mousse Brownie Pie (found here) is absolutely amazing. I highly recommend it.
Mr. Lovie and I make a pretty good birthday weekend team, I'd say. And don't make fun of me for my square "pie pan". It's what we had. Ha!!
Oh and Maggie was really excited to have her birthday on "Christmas" this year...
I mean why even take the tree down now, right? Ok so it might come down tomorrow. Maybe.
Her birthday presents look good under there.
Thanks for reading! Linking my "wreath" up to the parties on my sidebar!!
