Fill the Truck: Fabric Daffodils

Today I am struggling.  I’m struggling with patience.  I’m struggling with negativity.

I’m basically driving the whole Struggle Bus.

In short: I’ve got a bad attitude.

So, I thought I’d make something pretty.   (that didn’t involve masks)

Do you remember my Hallmark Inspired Truck that I keep out all year long?  Well, it needed something SPRINGY!

I meant to have at least two other Fill the Truck posts in between my Shamrocks and this one, but….well, quarantine life.

Alright, enough ho-hum…let’s get to some pretties, shall we?

I found a really cute, easy tutorial for fabric daffodils HERE from Crafty Staci  She gives you three ways to make them.  I followed one tutorial for the first one I made, and then just sort of wings the other two.  Remember, my attitude today.  I ran out of patience with that too, apparently.

 

Anywhoodle, I used some wooden skewers and wrapped them up with fabric for the stems….

HOT glue those bad boys on the back

Then, I just happened to have this cute little Terracotta pot Georgia painted for me back in 2018.  (says so on the bottom)

And for the dirt?  A rolled up brown sock that is one of a million without a match that I have piled in our guest room.

 

See, Who needs to run to the craft store to create something new?

Well, I might not NEED to…..but I REALLY REALLY REALLY cannot wait to anyway.

Also, I need to catch up on my Spring Fling Hallmark movies! (Perhaps that will lift my spirits?)

Fill The Truck: Felt Shamrocks

Last year as I was perusing down the Christmas clearance aisles….I came upon this beautiful vintage red truck that screamed out to my Hallmark heart!  I believe it was filled with a “sack of hot cocoa” when I bought it.

Now, normally, I take after-season-clearance deals and pack them away with my like-seasonal decor so that when the holiday rolls around again I get surprised by new things!  It’s like buying yourself a gift that you can still be surprised by!  (can you tell I don’t receive many gifts from other people very often?)

Well, since my Hallmark LOVE cannot not be contained to the Christmas season….this truck is part of my home decor all year round.

So, I need it to “haul” things for different seasons/holidays.

For MARCH….I needed: Shamrocks, of course!

I tried a few different projects, but couldn’t find one I liked more than these quick felt Shamrocks.

I was going to do a tutorial, but Lauren over at Molly and Mama did such a fantastic job, you can head over there if you need the step by step.

I did have take a few of my “ugly” first drafts and add buttons to the center to clean them up a bit…

And now, my Hallmark Truck is ALL READY for March!

(P.S. Hallmark’s Spring Fever movies start premiering on the 29th this year if you’re wondering)

What did you say?  You don’t have a truck like this to fill?   ….and you are looking for one to add to your decor

Well, you’re in LUCK!  I took the liberty of “shopping” for ya 😉  You know…just in case…even found you a few color options 😉 You’re welcome! SHOP HERE
