Sweet magnolia

I was browsing through the blogs I subscribe to and stumbled on this post from Ashley @ Make it and Love it. She published a magnificent picture of a Magnolia. I figured my glue gun would be the tool of choice for this quick project. White and yellow satin, a cardboard template for the petals and 30 minutes later something pretty. 

I'm thinking about putting it in a shadow box with a couple more and hang it in my bedroom that i've been planning on decorating for quite some time already. 6 years after buying our 35-year old (never updated) house, all the major jobs are finally tackled, time to turn from the utilitarian and try to please the eyes. 

So here is my first attempt at a fabric magnolia:



  1. I think it turned out fabulous!!

  2. Thank you Melissa. I guess I'll make a couple more... and take some pictures along the way for a tutorial


  3. Gorgeous! Thanks so much for linking up to gettin' crafty on hump day! :)

  4. Your first attempt is lovely. I think a shadow box would be a good choice.

  5. I heart magnolias. Your idea of grouping several together in a shadowbox sounds beautiful!


  6. Oh yes...I need one/some of these!!! They're amazing! thank you so much for putting them on my party link! ;D
