GIVEAWAY!!!

Giveaway by EclecticHandmadeCreations.com

I know I said it over and over again in the last post Easter Gift Basket – Part 4, but I just have to say it again, a few more times. I love the adorable little felted eggs I made for my Easter Gift Basket. They are just so freaking cute! I love them so much that I don’t think they should just sit around or worse be packed away only to come out next Easter. These little cuties need to be shown off, loved, admired and utilised. I have created three different crafts that showcase these cute little eggs. So that would make it, Felted eggs 3 ways! How eggciting! (I bet you were starting to miss egg puns, given that Easter was a couple of weeks ago!) (more…)

Easter Gift Basket Part 1

Easter Gift Basket Part 1 by EclecticHandmadeCreations.com

It is not long till Easter, only a few short weeks away. Soon the Easter bunny will be hopping around hiding chocolate Easter eggs for all the little boys and girls to hunt for. Or more accurately, mums and dads will be buying up big on the chocolate eggs and doing up Easter baskets for the kids to take to school to give their friends and teachers. Then mum and dad play Easter bunny and hide a mountain of eggs for the traditional Easter egg hunt.

Easter is one holiday that I don’t really celebrate; I really don’t need an excuse to eat chocolate, I already consume far too much of it as it is! I do however really like how Easter themed things are generally very cute. How could I not do a super cute Easter craft for you guys 🙂  (more…)

How to make large paper flowers

How to make large paper flowers_EclecticHandmadeCreations.com

We recently moved office at work and the new building has a lovely fresh feeling to it. There is lots of light, both natural and artificial and the walls are all panted in a very crisp fresh white with a fresh lime green as an accent colour. A few of the staff have indoor potted plants growing at their workstations, which add to the lovely feel of the space. I really wanted to have a plant of my own but there was one serious flaw in the idea, I kill plants! It’s not like I try to kill them or that I only kill sensitive plants, I genuinely kill any plant I look after! I was determined not to let this small flaw, ruin my plan and decided to think a little creatively. If I can’t keep live plants then artificial plants would have to do! I didn’t want to just get a plastic plant, I wanted something a little more lively, something with a little more soul. So, I thought I would make myself some flowers. I have the perfect blank wall next to my desk to display something sweet! (more…)

Free New Year Resolution Planner

Free New Year Resolution Planner by EclecticHandmadeCreations.com

The start of the New Year brings with it New Year Resolutions. That list of things that we should have done last year, or the year before that, or the one before that… Year after year, the lists seems to be the same, except for a few additions. In the past I, like many others, made resolutions and given up on upholding them as resolutions before the end of January. Mine are usually rather generic; Look after myself better, lose weight and be a kinder person. All very vague and lack any real thought or effort. This year, I’ll be doing something a little different. I am going to stay on track with a New Year Resolution Planner. I have put one together and I have shared it below for you for FREE.

How to make a Christmas Garland and Card Display

Christmas Garland and Card Display by #EclecticHandmadeCreations

Last week was all about Christmas Cards. They are a great way of creating something unique and special for someone that you care about. They don’t take much time, they aren’t expensive to make, and they can look so amazing. I love that Christmas time is an excuse to go old school and post letters and cards. It is so exciting to receive cards in the mail, or really anything other than bills! But what do you do with all those amazing cards, how do you showcase the works of art that your family and friends have made or picked out especially for you? They create such a Christmasy feel and provide beautiful decoration. However, they can be quite difficult to display; the slightest of breezes blows them over, they may not even like to stand on their own, hanging them over the traditional piece of string only helps protect them from a slight breeze, anything stronger and the whole lot come floating down. Today I am going to show you a beautiful way of displaying all your Christmas cards; A Christmas Garland and Card Display. It displays all your Christmas cards and it even looks great without cards so it doesn’t matter if you don’t receive any physical cards, perhaps your family and friends have so completely embraced the digital age and don’t get excited about mail as I do :-).
