Here are some of the little goodies I finished:
Sisal covered candle holder. I bought the candle holder for $1.29 and the sisal ($5.00) at the Wally World. Easy craft. I might do some more and just cover a portion of the glass. Similar to what you see online at PB. I like it more than the jute covered glass I did when I first started my blog. More texture. I have a ton of the sisal left, so I am trying to figure out what else to cover. Anytime I get to pull out the glue gun I am happy, especially if I am able to manage to finish the project without burning myself - which I did this time!
Mini chalkboard. I don't remember how much it was at AC Moore, but it was cheap. I taped it off and spray painted it Heirloom White. Then hot glued a simple little flower that was made from drop cloth fabric. I attached a jute cord to the back with hot glue to hang it from in case I want to hang it later. In the meantime, I plan to use it on my mantle or the dresser in our living room.
French Script Clothespins. I made some of these for my chicken wire memorabilia holder and liked them so much that I am making a bunch more. We use them as chip clips all of the time. Don't know what else I will do with them, but I like them. Got the stamp off of Ebay because I couldn't find any in the local craft stores. Weird how the black ink turns out purple. The others are a gray, which I think I like better, even though the script is fainter.
Candle sconces. I picked these up from a thrift store for $4.00. These are made from wood, which is unique. Most that I have seen have been made from plastic. They were a lovely garish gold. A couple coats of Heirloom White and some walnut stain and now I love them! Going to see if someone is willing to buy them! Wish I had room, but the walls of my little cottage are already at capacity with decor on the walls!
Felt wreath. I used a straw wreath and covered it with strips of onasburg fabric and affixed them with hot glue on the back. Once that was done, I made a bunch of earthtone felt rosebuds and then affixed them to the wreath with hot glue. Then a nice thick grosgrain ribbon in chocolate to hang it from and it was done. Super easy, but those rosebuds can be time consuming when you have a bunch to make! I really like how it turned out, but I probably wont hang it on my front door until the Fall because of the colors. I call it the mummy wreath because of all of the strips of fabric covering it!
So what have you been up to?
