Hi!
We are Kim and Natalie from
We came up with the idea for our blog over many brainstorming sessions involving lots of coffee. 
We were both looking for a way to be able to put our passion for creativity to another use so we created 
JosieJones & Company. We continue to do our photography business (Chloe Photography) and interior 
design consulting (Bell Interiors) but find that this blog is another creative outlet for us to share what we 
love with others. We began this venture at a crazy time in our lives, but with much prayerful consideration, we felt that this was His plan for us. 

We hope it will bring you a smile, perhaps gives you a little creative courage, or provides a some guiltless 
pleasure after kids are tucked in for the night.
{The TUTORIAL}
DIY   {Darling Linen Wreath}
So simple, yet so sweet!  This wreath literally cost me less than $3 in material.  It is the perfect piece to adorn that empty hook in your entry hall, or to hang from the post of a headboard.  It was so easy to make but yet it makes such a statement to me.  Simple can be beautiful- we don’t need to overdo it always.
Materials Needed:
straight pins
scissors
pinking shears
thread
hot glue gun
fabric
ribbon
craft styrofoam wreath
The first step is to cut 2 inch strips of fabric (cut as long as possible), then pin the first part of your fabric to the syrofoam wreath.  This will keep it in place as you wrap the fabric around the wreath to cover it.
once it is completely covered, pin the endof the fabric in place…try to hide your pinsby pinning it on the back of the wreath.
using a new piece of fabric cut into 2 inchstrips, 18 inches long, fold the strip in half.
Begin by tightly rolling your folded strip of fabric to form the center of your flower.  Use your thread and needle at the base and occasionally secure the roll.
Eventually, you want to start rolling the fabric looser to get a fuller flower.  Be sure to leave about 2 inches unrolled to make a leaf.  At the end of the strip, you need to sinch the base and secure by sewing and tying off your thread.
Cut the loose end at an angle to form the shape of a leaf.
Secure the leaf shape by folding and gluing into place on your wreath.
Hot glue the flowers in an arrangement.  Tie ribbon through to hang.
To decorate, use vintage jewelry {this is an old clip-on earring}, a sea shell, jewelry pieces sold at Michael’s/Joann’s, ribbon bows, buttons, faux flowers, faux fruits, feathers, birds, etc.
