Pinterest Challenge

I am a huge fan of Pinterest. I am obsessed with the inspiration that the site drives in my soul. I am obsessed with Pinterest as a company. I am obsessed with watching how companies, entrepreneurs and the creative world are integrating it within their business practices. Peoples’ online e-shops are up because people are repinning their content. Viewership is up on blogs due to new links from Pinterest (hello new readers!).¬† I just love how quickly it has overtaken society and how people are using it. Enough about that. Here are a few projects I created after being inspired on Pinterest:

Baby Onesies! I am a beginner at sewing, but after seeing a pin on pinterest, I thought I could attempt to make a few for a dear friend that is having a baby. I thought they turned out pretty cute, especially since the selection of boy clothes is limited in the stores.

Christmas Wreath: Originally, I found an all white wreath on pinterest, but wanted to put my own spin on the design. I decided to do a green wreath, as it would go good against our red front door. The whole process was actually very easy- cut felt circles, pin them onto a Styrofoam ring. I spent maybe $10.00 on the project after I bought the styrophom, felt, and sewing pins. I say it was worth it to create something that can be used for many years to come.

Paintings: My sisters came over to my house last week for a slumber party and we had so much fun painting our own canvases. We all found some inspiration on Pinterest and then adapted the design and colors to fit our own lives. Mine is the “Georgia on my Mind” canvas.

Crayon Art: Finally my last piece of Pinterest art was a rendition on the crayon art. I already had a black and pink painting so I wanted something mono-toned to go with it. I used the hair dryer method to melt the crayons and then made sure the wax went all over the canvas.

So those are my November Pinterest art pieces. What have you Pinned and created lately?

    I love this! I’m on Pinterest all the time! I’ve used it as inspiration for party designs! I think I may try my own Pinterest art challenge. Nice onesies btw! Did you sew them yourself or did you buy blank ones and decorate? Could you shoot me the link?

      Thanks Sarah! I would love to see a picture of your finished art once you are done! The onesies were store bought (just a multi pack). I then got some fabric samples from a local store and then cut out the shapes I wanted. For the anchor I used my Cricut cutter, but you could also just trace out your shapes from a printed picture. After that I heat ironed them to some fusible bond and then sewed the corners down. It was super simple and overall maybe took me 45 mintues! Here is the original Pinterest tutorial.
