Fabric Wreath

Hope your thanksgiving was full of F words!  Friends, family, food & fun!  ;)  

How cool is this wreath?!?!  I saw a bunch of these on Pinterest and decided to make one. 

I bought a metal wire wreath from Michael's.  You can get them at Joann's too.   They cost around $5 and just for reference, this one is 24" wide. 

I used almost all my green scraps up!  I cut my strips in varying widths & lengths.  Width - .75" - 1.25". Lengths -
5" - 8". 

I looped them around the metal wire part and jammed in as much as I could in each section.  I noticed the more fabric you use, the better it looks at the end. 

A couple hours later, I was done!  And I'm loving it!!!  :D  

Hope you make one too!  Have a wonderful weekend.

Best Lemon Bars Ever!

Best Lemon Bars Ever!!! Totally self proclaimed but I think many people will agree!  

Disclaimer - Please consider yourself warned. These lemon bars are highly addictive and can cause serious weight gain. Do not blame me. Ok?

Ok!  Let's get started. 


1 cup of butter softened at room temp
1/2 cup of white sugar
2 cups of flour 

Lemon part 

1 1/2 cups of Sugar
4 eggs
1/4 cup of flour
1 cup of lemon juice (maybe 2-3 lemons)
1 tbsp of powdered sugar


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

In a bowl, blend together softened butter, 2 cups flour and 1/2 cup sugar.  Mix until it's gets like play doh. 

Press into the bottom of an ungreased 9x13 inch pan. Or something the same size. 

Bake for 30 minutes, or until firm and golden. If it isn't, bake for another 5 mins. 

In another bowl, whisk together the remaining 1 1/2 cups sugar and 1/4 cup flour. Whisk in eggs and lemon juice. Pour over the baked crust.

Bake for an additional 20 minutes. 

The bars will firm up as they cool.  Sprinkle some powdered sugar on top. Slice into squares and enjoy!!!  

That's it!!  :)
