Fabric covered closet shelves

So this project has been awhile coming…the closet in my art/craft room is very small (22″ x 26″) and previously only had the very top shelf, so it was a pain to store things in there (i.e. everything was stacked on top of everything else which means nothing can be used). So finally, we put up shelves, getting the shelves themselves cut from plywood at Home Depot. Instead of leaving the wood or painting it, which would take forever, I opted to use some extra fabric and cover them, adding some color to the closet. And nicely, if we don’t want the shelves and wanted it as a regular closet again to hang clothes, the shelves can easily be taken down…

Christmas Wreath #2

So making an upcycled Christmas wreath is pretty easy, and they turn out really well (inexpensive easy holiday decoration!). I made a compliment to my first wreath so I have two outside my door. All the materials except for the wire frame and florist wire (from Michael’s) came from ArtScraps (that I mentioned in my previous post). The material for the second wreath cost maybe $2.

BUT then I showed my husband’s grandma, and she had me make one for her as well:
