An inspiration for the 1st challenge at "For the love of crafting" blog

Hello friends,

Sorry for MIA for a while... but I am back ... Today I will share the wall hangings that I made as a GD for Kavitha’s new blog “for the love of crafting”. For the first monthly challenge, the theme is “Hanging out”. You are supposed to make something that can be hung. It can be a tree ornament , door hanger, wreath or a wall hanging or any other project of your choice. Also, you can use any technique and material. It can be a painting, crochet, embroidery, clay work, paper crafts etc.
There is  a fab prize too for the winner, a paper craft kit!!! So hurry up!


I made a set of three mini wall hangings which can be hang together or separately. Now the detailed photo of each wall hanging.

I cut a brown textured card stock into stripes and weaved them to make the base of wall hanging.
The green swirls are drawn and cut by hands. Used some fused pearl strings as butterflies trails.

Made few paper flowers from Itsy Bitsy paper petals. All 3 wall hangings are 4 x 4 inches in size. you can arrange these in any way you want.



Supplies used:
Brown cardstock: Local buy
Flowers: Handmade by me
Butterflies: Itsy Bitsy
Fused pearl strings: A1 craft supplies
Bling and beads: Local buy

Now take out all your craft material and make something to hang. For further details, rules and other inspirations check out the blog.

Linking this to following challenges too:

Create me pink - Flower power
Crafty anns challenge blog - Floral frenzy
Frosted designs - Embossing (Used dry embossing to make flowers)
Crafty ribbons challenge - Anything but a card

Happy crafting,
Priya...
