13. New Take on a Traditional Wreath

I only posted this in December but it turned out to be a very popular post.. Perhaps as it is a little different from all the other wreaths …

12. Vintage Rose Set 

I absolutely loved this project.. It was upcycled from an old sauce and candle jar and given a new life.  The Reloved Magazine featured it in their August edition.

11. French Inspired Box Makeover

This project was so much to do.. Yes a lot of work to save the old wood, but so worth it in the end.  There is beauty in everything around us, you just have to look closely…

8. Red Robin Candle Holder

Another decoupage project makes it to the Top 14.  Loved making this candle holder for my sister.  It was so much fun to play with the snow paste.. It is definitely a must for next year’s winter crafts projects.

7.  Bright and Beautiful Table

I LOVED doing this little table for the Fab Furniture Flippin’ Contest as my July entry where the theme was – Let Your Colours Burst!  It was so much fun and brought me back to my childhood and going to the art school.

6. Scrabble Art

This was a gift I was asked to make for the happy couple and my first scrabble art frame. This one divided the people – ome people said it was tacky, some said it was brilliant, cute and some said it was childish.. But clearly lots of people were curious enough to check the post out as it landed on number 6!!  Personally I loved it and so did the happy couple!

5. Compass Table

This was my hardest, MOST complicated, but most wonderful project of last year.. It took blood, sweat and tears to complete it but once it was done I felt so proud! It didn’t win the competition in September, BUT it came THIRD in the December 2015 Favourites– Fab Furniture Flippin Contest AND was featured in Reloved Magazine January 2016 issue.
