Happy Halloween From M&J Trimming
Happy Halloween From M&J Trimming
Using silk ribbons, it’s so easy to match the flower girl’s dress to the flower basket. Rhinestone buttons can be added to give it that extra elegant finish. This is a great idea for brides who are looking for something easy yet still beautiful for her flower girl. You can choose silk ribbon colors that match with your wedding theme. All you have to do is tie the bow onto the dress and stitch the ribbon onto the wedding basket. Then finish it off with a glistening Swarovski rhinestone button and you’re all finish.

M&J Trimming’s was recently featured on NBC’s Martha Stewart Show on October 9th. Kristin along with Martha embellished some hoodie’s and created some fun crafty costumes. Besides having to be careful about the candies on Halloween, parents also have to worry about the health of their children. Especially since Halloween night is usually a little chilly. Which means kids can’t stay out trick or treatin’ for long. However, Kristin and Martha came up with some really fun ideas for creating a DIY costume while keeping warm simply by embellishing hoodies with items from M&J Trimming. You can find the template and more information on how you and your children can create your own fun costumes at MarthaStewart.com.
This week I threw together a cute little basket for handing out Halloween candy. The supplies are simple and it only takes a few minutes to make.
The hottest trend it seems lately is that brides are heading towards shades of gray for the new accent color. They are incorporating into everything ranging from the invites to the wedding dress itself! I decided to create a simple pair of shoe clips done in this hot new shade to show how versatile it can be.
Shoe clips were at their most popular during the Victorian era, they were used to dress up your shoes, but could also be clipped to hats, scarves, and bags. I’m a huge fan of shoe clips, I usually make my own using mostly buttons and ribbons, but I do have a few vintage pairs too. Why not try to make a pair today, you’ll quickly see how addictive it is to own a ‘new’ pair of shoes!
This week I wanted to make an accent pillow with stripes but didn’t have any striped material on hand. What better solution than to make my own stripes! With the cool weather rolling in, I wanted it to be extra soft. I selected some leftover high-pile apoulstery fabric for the body of the pillow. For the stripes I used 22mm velvet ribbon that complimented the color of the fabric. Since I used two different fabrics for each side, I wanted something to break between them with out clashing with the ribbon so I picked out velvet cordedge in a neutral color so the stripes would not disappear.
If you’d like to embellish some of your accessories with rhinestones, but you’re not sure where to start, then you can try the “Rhinestone Starter Kit“. The kit includes all the items that will assist you in sparking up your cell phones, ipods, glasses and more. We’ve added a video online that will help guide you in using the kit.
Let’s admit it, the popularity of crochet has been around for decades and it’s only growing everyday. Since Fall is just around the corner, I’ve been seeing more and more women doing some crochet work on the bus, subway and even during their lunch break. I do a little crochet work also. Mostly baby blankets and scarves as gifts for friends and family. It beats laying around doing nothing when I’m at home.
Anyways, I wrote a blog a few months back called “Creativity Mixed In A Blender“. In that blog, I had a few pictures of some crochet appliques that M&J Trimming does not have online. So for this blog, I wanted to show everyone a few more crochet appliques that are not listed online. However, you can order them by calling customer service at 1.800.9.MJTRIM. Keep in mind that customer service is only available from 9am to 6pm EST and that’s from Monday to Friday.
