How to Make a Gold Monogram

How to Make a Gold Monogram

I am seriously in love with my new moss monogram wreath! I love how the "B" really stands out, even from the street. You can find the How to Make a Simple Moss Wreath Tutorial by clicking on the link. This project was pretty simple and inexpensive... and just too cute! Don't you just love Spring?

Moss Wreath and Gold Monogram Tutorial. Such a fresh and pretty wreath! Must make this! #spring #gold #monogram

I started off with a letter "B" which I found at Hobby Lobby for a couple dollars. I used spray adhesive and gold metal leaf.

It's really hard to get full coverage with the leaf so I made my life way easier by going over it with Liquid Leaf.

So, just start by applying your leaf. I sprayed a section on the letter with adhesive and just laid the leaf over.

This can be a little messy and you have to be careful to get adhesive on your hands and then touch the leaf because you will end up pulling it right off.

After I applied the leaf, I went over it with Liquid Leaf. That way I got full coverage but I still get the look of real leafing. I guess you could just paint your letter with Liquid Leaf if you're in a hurry :).

I attached a pretty blue ribbon to the letter using my heavy-duty staple gun.

Then I attached the ribbon to the back of the wreath, also with the stable gun.

I was going for a very simple, clean look. But you could certainly add a bow if you wanted.

Oh, isn't the gold letter against the lush green just swoon-worthy?

Like I mentioned, it totally "pops," even from the street!

How to Make a Simple Moss Wreath

How to Make a Simple Moss Wreath

This tutorial was originally posted on The Crafting Chicks (love their blog)!

I love wreaths. I love moss. What could be better for Spring than a simple moss wreath? I am going to show how to make one. It's so easy and so cute, fresh, and Springy!

What you need:
A foam form. (I paid about $6 for this one at Hobby Lobby. It was with the foam stuff, not the wreath forms.)
A hot glue gun
Moss (find it in the floral department at the craft store)

Simply glue sections of the moss to the form. I put the glue on the moss first and then carefully pressed it to the form. Be careful of your fingers, the glue can seep through the moss a little. I got a burn :(.

Here's what it looks like half way done. This is a messy little project. Because you are using real moss, and it's a little dirty, prepare your work area for easy clean up.

And here it is hanging on my front door. I love how simple it is. You could totally add stuff to dress it up. I'm thinking hydrangeas or ranunculus. The options are limitless! OR just leave it simple, fresh, and green! Oh, I'm loving all these ideas!

I just adore the fresh greenery. And the best part is... no watering. Since I am the queen of killing plants, this is a serious plus in my book!

Remember how I mentioned you could add stuff to dress it up? Well, I decided to dress mine up with a gilded monogram. Come on over and visit my blog for the Gold Monogram Tutorial.

Best Cake Mix Recipes

Best Cake Mix Recipes

The other day I had an epiphany. See, my kids wanted to make cookies but I didn't really want to. I wondered if there was a way that I could let them make cookies by themselves. I figured that if it were easy enough my 10-year-old and 8-year-old could handle it themselves. Turns out I was right. My Cake Mix Peanut Butter Cookies were super low-maintenance. And the cookies themselves were super moist and yummy. I hardly had to do anything. I considered it a big win!

So, I scoured the internet to find the best cake mix recipes on the world wide web. There are tons of them. But I liked these because they are unique and the look so incredibly good! Just click on the "source" link below each picture to find the original recipe!

Cake Mix Peanut Butter Cookie Recipe

Cake Mix Peanut Butter Cookie Recipe

I love to make cookies for my family but I hardly ever have the time. It always seems like such a process. Well, not anymore. I am about to make your life so much easier. You are about to become the domestic goddess you've always dreamed you could be. Or... at least you'll be able to make cookies super quickly.

So easy to make and SO yummy. Just 4 ingredients. Cake mix peanut butter cookies. #cookies #cakemix

What you need:
1 yellow cake mix
2 eggs
1/4 cup butter (half a cube)
1 cup peanut butter

So simple!


So easy to make and SO yummy. Just 4 ingredients. Cake mix peanut butter cookies. #cookies #cakemix

What you do:
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Throw all your ingredients into your mixer and mix, or mix by hand. When the ingredients are combined, scoop 1 tablespoon of dough onto a cookie tray (I use parchment paper) and then squish with a fork one direction, and then the other. Bake for 8-10 minutes.


So easy to make and SO yummy. Just 4 ingredients. Cake mix peanut butter cookies. #cookies #cakemix

I find that the parchment paper gives me the perfect cookie bottom and keeps the cookies from sticking to the pan.

It might also be fun to add some Reece's Pieces to these cookies. I think the dough tastes just like the inside of a Reece's Pieces.
