woven rope pendant lamp

It wasn’t until that moment that I realized how significantly great light fixtures can change a room. The initial intimidation of working with electricity is starting to lessen with some great pointers from my dad, and now I am ready to tackle each room.

Homemade art for sister

Her birthday is on Tuesday, but we thought it would be better to go up the weekend before. (I will post all about this on Tuesday!!) I made her 2 things, and I thought I would share the cool art I made for her. This is what you will need: 3 pairs of old glasses, a shadow box, 6 pictures and hotglue. First, place a piece of paper over the lense of the glasses and rub around the edge of the glass to trace the shape of the glass. (sorry about the awful pictures, the lighting is awful in the craft room at night!)

Originally I was going to modge podge the picture to the front of the glasses, but then I decided to attach it to the bottom.

Melted Beads and Accessories. Have you ever made accessories with melted beads?

Melted Beads and Accessories

This is so fun and easy to do! During the weekend we made some melted bead jewelry and a few bookmarks. My girls could not stop making their own earrings and seriously this is so affordable that you don’t feel bad when they lose them. Look how cute they look… So fun! Making your own beach stone buttons. Over the holiday's I gathered a few stones from my beach visits to have a go at making them into buttons. They will need to be fairly flat and not to big. There are soft rocks and hard rocks - sand and lime stone are the easiest to drill. Some of the ones I collected where too hard for these cheap drill bits. Also take into account the size of the stone. The bigger they are, the heavier they are and they will not be useful.
