DIY Butterfly Wreath


Materials:
-Grape Vine Wreaths
-Wire
-Ribbon with Wire
-Burlap Ribbon with wire
-Faux Flowers
-Large Stick with Antennas (that can easily be found in your backyard!)

Lay out your grape vine wreaths. I put the larger size on the top and the smaller size on the bottom, to better imitate butterfly wings. Using wire, connect four wreaths together. Take a trek in your back yard to find a perfect stick with antennas! I wrapped the body of  mine in wired burlap ribbon. Using wired ribbon, I tied the stick to the wreaths, connecting in two locations, top section and bottom section. When your butterfly is complete, you can embellish with your favorite faux flowers! A friend of mine made burlap felt flowers, so I snuck two of those on my butterfly as well! Feel free to get creative!

All supplies can be found at your local craft store. There are many different Grape Vine Wreath sizes; I ended up making 3 different butterflies. One large, one medium, and one small. They worked perfectly as visual displays for my Barn Sale!

Progress...


I would like to offer a bit of insight into the evolution of the Homegirl product line to those of you who have followed and supported me all these years on this amazing journey I have been blessed to be on with my business. Coming from a professional background in corporate retail, I was very specific in creating the Homegirl brand in hopes that it would be a home decor and gift-able product line, that would be offered via other independent or larger retailers, that would want to carry the feel good, colorful products that are in opposition to the safe, "beigeness" of the home decor product offerings that are available at mass. I have been knocking on this door for many years now, and have exhausted, examined and explored many different options to grow, change and expand, and feel good about the path that I am on and it has landed me at where I am today. I use the goodness of what I have created to "pass it on" knowing that growing only means I can give more back which has always been a cornerstone of my business and personal philosophy. AS ALWAYS, THANK YOU for allowing me to do what I love.  I could not be more full of excitement and energy for the PROGRESS and POSSIBILITIES to come!

Homegirl Product Line

Homegirl mentioned in Akron Beacon Journal article.


"Hudson’s Homegirl is going global. Gina Bishop, who has earned a local following for her periodic Homegirl barn sales, is coming out with her own home decor line. Bishop is working with a company based in China that will produce the products and distribute them to retailers internationally.
She said the line includes items such as accent pillows, throws, wall decor and other decorative accessories, all with a handcrafted feel. Most will be manufactured in India, except for a few higher-priced pieces she will make herself. Eventually she hopes to have some of her products made in the United States, she said.
The line is scheduled for launch next spring, although she hopes to have some of the products available at her next barn sale, June 5 to 7 at 2357 Hudson-Aurora Road. (Hours are 6 to 8 p.m. June 5 and 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. June 6 and 7.) She also plans to sell the items at the Country Living Fair from Sept. 12 to 14 in Columbus".
