Hearts

Hearts are the theme today to spread some love around the world!

I made these two lariat hearts by simply using a 44″ piece of lariat, pulling it into the shape of a heart and wrapping with red leather lace, leaving enough excess for a tassel.

I could stop right there. You can hang these anywhere and I thought they … Read More

Horseshoe Towel Holder

This project evolved over time as I came up with ideas. Sometimes I pick up a horseshoe and ideas start popping into my head.

My husband has a wood shop so we have tons of wood. I grabbed a board and screwed a Large Horseshoe on each side and put a couple of finger towels on it. Cute! But…that wasn’t … Read More

Lariat Wreath

I wanted to incorporate the Star in Ring into a Christmas wreath and was going to use green garland, but decided to use a lariat rope instead.

I cut a board into pieces the same size as the star trim and glued and nailed it together with a brad nail gun.

I spray painted it white … Read More
