I have been trying to finish up all of my Holiday crafting, so I got behind on my scrap fabric projects last week. To make it up to all of you, here are a bunch of super cute scrap fabric projects I found on Pinterest! Above you will see a fabric scrap Memory game, found at Babble . This is a great wall art project using fabric scraps and embroidery hoops, from The Purl Bee .
We have a new "stained glass" front door! This one is made with contact paper and flower petals and may be my favorite yet. I love it! The front door window is our big spot for displaying seasonal changes in art and decoration.
Get out the hammer, it's how-to Tuesday and we have some botanical prints to make! I learned this technique, which makes an image using the natural dyes in plants, from my college roommate Sarah. It's great for making cards or simple botanical prints. Actually, you'll need a little more than just a hammer. Here's a supply list: flowers or leaves to print watercolor or other rough, acid-free paper selection of hammers (including ball-peen or cross-peen, if possible) hard work surface (cutting board, slab of wood, etc.) paper towels scissors pen tweezers or toothpicks acrylic finishing spray (optional)
My great-grandmother lived to be 93. And she loved to crochet. She made me dozens of doilies, collars, and hankies over the years. The doilies are so beautiful that I hated to see them packed away in a box in my closet. But I wasn’t about to scatter them over my furniture either. I decided to frame some, but the trick was finding square frames.
Here is a simple yet stylish photo frame that can accomodate quite many photos at once. The idea is very simple. Fasten twines on the empty frame and hang photos using clothes pins on them. You can use a frame you bought or a frame you made by yourself. To make it you just need to find some wood strips, sand them, paint or stain them and fasten together with the staples and nails.
