Paper Wall Art

 There is a wall in our family room where the builders thought would be nice to put a painting or an artwork. No guess work here, as to where to hang your art. There is already a little depression on the wall to hang your art work..:).

We had it even in our previous house and I had a piece which I used to hang there. Then we moved to our current place, the wall color changed and also I was bored of the previous hanging, so I have been looking for something to fill that place. Its been blank for quiet sometime now. Anything I liked was either not the correct size or not the right price.

Caramel Apple Cake

Few days back, I bought quiet a few boxes of cake mixes. And now I had a whole bunch of cake boxes, but didn't want to just make plain cakes. So looked through recipes and found this on the side of the Betty Crocker box which I liked and had almost all the ingredients to whip this one up. I skipped the pecans because of allergies, but the original recipe in mentioned below.

Twine Flowers

I love making these twine flowers. You can make these with twine, yarn or any kind of thread for that matter.

Spring Fabric Wreath

I love this spring fabric wreath. Its bright and colorful and I think its just appropriate for spring.

I had an old dress, the fabric of which I loved. The dress just went of style, so I cut strips of that dress and wrapped it around the wreath form.  I decorated the wreath, with fabric flowers. You can see the tutorial for some of the fabric flowers here. I also added a little bunting.

Painted Pinecones

Doesn't that look like the flower Zinnia..:). As the title of the post already gave it away, these are painted pinecones.

I have quite a collection of pinecones. I love how they look, even without painting or doing anything to it. I love to use them in decor during fall... during Christmas it goes on wreaths and garlands...
For spring now, I thought of painting them. Its a great project for the kids. My kids love to paint. And it was a great project for them.

Fried Biscuit Doughnut Holes

The other day we were craving some doughnuts, but could not run to the store to get some. So instead made these doughnut holes and it was gone in minutes. It was soooo good and so easy to make. If you have a tin of biscuit dough, I seriously suggest try making these...:)

Paper Cut Art

Had seen a similar kind of art sometime back in one of the websites and thought of making one too. You can make so many different kind of design using the same technique.

I hand cut the paper in heart shape and folded in half to make a petal and played around by placing the petals in a design I liked. I cut the hearts in two different sizes, but you can make one or more than two sizes. This would be faster if you have a heart punch...:)
