Picadilly & Company, creating home decor knick knacks one party at a time. We provide you and your guests a fun evening creating a home decor items while in your home. It's a great venue for a Girls Night Out, family get together, etc. However, before we can create them in your home, I create them for my home. And there are some things I do, that I just cannot bring to someone's home. So, check out what I'm working on, maybe it will inspire you.

Currently I am preparing for our holiday homes tour. I will begin decorating for Christmas the day after Thanksgiving. In the meantime I am creating different projects to decorate with. So, the ideas I am sharing do not show the final stage often due to that. In December I will post pictures of the final outcome. Thanks for stopping by. And please, check out the website above!


Jute Wreath

I really love natural colors with a touch of red for the holidays. This jute webbing used in reupholstering is right there with burap for me, natural and simple. I honestly thought making this wreath was going to be easier than it was. I first bought a wreath at The Dollar Tree. They are small and have 90 degree edges. Which actually made it more difficult. Here was the end result, not so pretty.
So I purchased this lovely piece at Goodwill for 99 cents. Foam isn't cheap and this was far better of a deal. I just not so gently cut off the fabric and had a new foam base to wrap the jute around.
I then used hot glue and carefully wrapped the jute webbing around the wreath base. I used 4 yards of webbing for this wreath. You have to get a tight wrap and it helps to cut slits in the edge of the webbing on the back side to get a tighter wrap. The end result:
