I used black felt for the backing. The oval piece and flowers are blanket stitched in red perle cotton and the leaves in green.
While on our trip I stopped in a Joann Fabrics to buys some wool felt.
Green, red and dark gray
I was anxious to get these felted but only got the green done today.
I just love how soft and luxurious it turned out!
These are some items I bought on our trip
Top left is old rusty measuring spoon, one cup sifter, an old whisk and pie crust crimper tool.
I'm going to redo these boxes for Christmas. I'm not a painter but I was thinking barn red, hunter green and gold and sponge some white on them. Going to check into stencils too.
Picked up these pewter salt & pepper shakers to add to the 2 rolling pin shelf I purchased from Carol of Firecracker Kid's Primitives. LOVE my new shelf!!
The large wooden rolling pin is a new purchase too. I want to add some cup holders to hang the rusty spoon and pie crimper from. The whisk is too large to hang in the front - may hang off the side. Right now it's hanging off the lower rolling pin's handle.
One more thing!! My grand daughter Jordyn FOUND MY LOST star wool candle mat!!! Yay Jordyn!!!!
