Gift Ideas for Poor Creative Souls (12) Posted by: Cathy on Jun 03, 2012 Tagged in: Untagged Summer Lights Garland I loved this idea and who would not love to receive this pretty gift. What you need: string of LED lights with white wire (regular lights may get too hot) plastic drinking cups patterned paper of your choice double sided tape scissors craft knife 1. 2. 3. Tutorial courtesy of HeyGorgeous For tutorials on how to market yourself online go here: dreamcatchers I’m really diggin the whole hippy thing. And while Craig is quick to correct me on the fact that dream catchers are not hippy-ish, I still think of them that way. Natural, care free, simple. All things I relate to those old hippies. hah. The point of a dream catcher is to weed out bad dreams. Depending on who you talk to, there will be two different stories on how this happens. This is not a traditional Native- American dream catcher. What I used: Embroidery Hoop Yarn (or twine, hemp… whatever you have on hand) Beads Feathers Thread Felt Hot Glue Gun Want to make one too?? Grab your embroidery hoop, leave it as is, or wrap it up like I did. Take your webbing yarn and form a loop at the top, this will be where you dreamcatcher hangs from. The webbing is the same stitch through out. Pull tight and repeat. For your second (and every other row), use the same stitch, but instead of going over the hoop, go through the string: Keep going until the hole in the middle is to your liking.

DIY Confetti Bowl Last weekend I made this DIY project with the boys, it's really easy to make and I can assure that you're gonna have fun! You'll need: confetti, one balloon, Mod Podge, a sponge and a small vase. Inflate your balloon, then insert it on to the vase so it's sturdier to work with. Add Mod Podge to the top half of the balloon with a sponge, then sprinkle confetti all over, you can remove your balloon from the vase and hold it to add the confetti on the sides. Turn your balloon and Pop it with a needle, I couldn't do this because I've always been afraid of the noise, but my little one was my hero ;D Now you'll have a colorful bowl! You could either let it with irregular edges, or you can cut them as I did. That's it! Thanks for all your visits and comments to this post, some of you have even made this bowl and sent me pictures that I'll share with you soon!
