Constellation Jar

Constellation Jar
I asked Amy of This Heart of Mine for a project that would be fun for kids or adults. I love that she thought of star-gazing! We’re so far into the countryside, that the stars here are outrageously bright. It’s awesome! — Gabrielle Star gazing is one of my favorite things. Because of my love of the stars, when my daughter was little, I purchased her a night light that shines stars all over her bedroom walls. What you’ll need: - a wide mouth jar – The jar needs to be wide enough to fit the small click light inside. -an awl - scissors Cut a strip of the cake pan long enough to fit around inside the jar and tall enough to reach to the very top of the jar. Use the awl to poke holes for the constellations. I connected the constellation dots with a silver Sharpie to make them easier to spot. Fill in the other space with more holes. Roll the aluminum sheet until it fits snug inside the jar. Put the encircled aluminum sheet inside the jar. Take into a dark room and enjoy.

Glowing Outdoor Orbs O.K. Get ready for it … this one’s a doozy. Doozie? Doosey. It’s a humdinger. It looks high end with a side of huge impact, DIY fabric rug tutorial After walking away empty handed from a recent rug shopping trip, I was beginning to wonder if I would ever find the perfect rug for my entryway. With a nearly endless supply of patterns and colors to choose from at the fabric store, I knew that making my own rug out of ordinary fabric would be the perfect solution! What you'll need DIY T-Shirt Quilt Before I explain this project, I need to set two things straight. First off-- I'm a sentimental hoarder. If a fond memory is even remotely related to an inanimate object, I keep it. For example, I have almost every ticket from any movie I've ever seen, I have a serious problem with getting rid of stuffed animals, and I have a knickknack box full of dumb things like a dried clover flower that my friend threw at me while we were lying in a cornfield, bored, waiting for a cross country race to end.
