Most people wouldn't think to browse your library for private or personal things. It's also a great way to pass something to someone discreetly--an unsuspecting onlooker will just think you're sharing a very good read! Edit Steps
My kids are old enough that we can all use glass to drink out of now. However, it seems they haven’t outgrown using a million cups everyday to drink from. There’s always a sink full of glasses because they take a new one whenever they get a drink. I thought about doing monograms or even names, but I really wanted a set of drinking glasses that were more stylish and grown up.
Today I am going to give you a very detailed, step by step tutorial on how to make this wreath. In fact sorry if it almost feels like paper cone wreath making for dumbies, but I have had a lot of questions about this wreath so I am just trying to cover all my bases. Let's get started...
Quilling has been around for hundreds of years, but it’s still as impressive and popular now as it was during the Renaissance. The art of quilling first became popular during the Renaissance, when nuns and monks would use it to roll gold-gilded paper and decorate religious objects, as an alternative to the expensive gold filigree. Later, during the 18th and 19th centuries, it became a favorite pass-time of English ladies who created wonderful decorations for their furniture and candles, through quilling. Basically, the quilling process consists of cutting strips of paper , and rolling them with a special tool. It sounds simple enough, but special skill is required to create more advanced shapes like marquises, arrowheads or holly leaves. All through the years, the art of quilling has remained almost unchanged, but new specialty supplies now allow quilling masters to create anything from detailed 3-D figures to wall-sized museum installations.
Here’s another Christmas ornament that is super easy to make, and even cheaper than my felt pom pom ornament . It’s simply 20 circles, cut out of your favorite paper, and glued together into a sphere. While really simple, I think that it’s also really striking and fun. If you have circle punches, this craft could easily be done alone with supervision by a kindergartner. Even a younger preschool-aged child could help glue it together in the later steps, once the circles are cut and folded. I love crafts that get the kids involved.
The other week, my good friend Stephanie and I planned out a craft weekend. Our mission: Terrariums. Not the kind you keep lizards in, but the kind you can seal up and watch the moss grow. It was fun, cheap, and easy, and while we were creating them I realized how awesome they would be as centerpieces at a wedding.
Like most of you, I’m sure, I tend to go through a lot of paint chips when trying to decide on a color to paint a room. And when the project is done, I toss the paint chips into a box I keep in my craft room. They are the perfect “I’ll use these one day” items, right? Well I stumbled upon the box a few days ago and realized just how many I’d collected over the years. Oh the memories this pile brings back!
Y'all already know that I have a thing for sheet music. Well I am at it again.... All you need is cardboard, sheet music, glue, and a little ink to distress the sides. Yep that cardboard can be anything from an amazon box to your empty Cheerios box. I cut out four pieces of my "H". Yep that H template was just printed off of the computer and I cut the cardboard with a pair of scissors.
