2  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / I'm a LITTLE obsessed with wreaths lately. on: October 29, 2010 01:48:43 PM
This is like the 4th wreath I've made recently.  This one cost less than 10 bucks!

3 Packages of crepe paper leaves from Dollar Tree
1 Floral/Pumpkin pick from HobLob on sale for 1.99
Cardboard gift box left over from last Xmas - Free
Scrap of ribbon (mere pennies)
Feathers found in my yard - Free
"Jewel" marbles leftover from last wreath project (pennies)
Plus 3 oreos to bribe my teenager to "crinkle" the leaves for me.




And another one - more cutsey, but also more expensive.

Styrofoam wreath form - 5 bucks
Pom Pom yarn - another 5 bucks
Googley eyes - 2.99 for a huge pack - I have tons left over.



Hope you like!
3  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / What do Ikea and Jenga have in common? on: October 27, 2010 01:11:06 PM
Why, my latest project of course!

Take 2 plain MALMA mirrors --2.99ea. at Ikea (okay, I got mine at Goodwill for 99 cents).

Take 1 old JENGA game -- Actual retail price - Huh?  (again, got mine at Goodwill for 1.99 and the kids NEVER played it)

Paint the pieces, and the frame of the mirror if needed (the ones I got were the bright red ones, so the color pallete didn't go)

Hot glue on in a pleasing pattern, and hang. 

Painting mirrors is a pain!  The first one I did I taped then painted, and when I pulled off the tape, you could still see the RED reflected in the mirror, so the second one I didn't tape at all, and I sort of smooshed the paint under the edge of the frame where the mirror was.  No reflection, but now I have to scrape the paint off the mirror.  But whatever works for you.  No pressure.

Finished project:



Photographing mirrors is hard too - you always get that annoying glare!!

Wicked awesome!!  I have a plethora of old cardboard magazine holders in this ugly black and white "Composition Book" print.  They're so hideous, I have them hidden in a closet.

Might just have to break them out and try this!!!

Great job.  Thanks for sharing!
5  NEWS AND DISCUSSION ABOUT CRAFTSTER / Craftster Itself / Re: Problem with activation - help me on: October 27, 2010 11:05:27 AM
Yeah, I was confused too at first.  When you click the link, it takes you to that page that says "Re-send activation code" 

If you enter your username on the top line and type in the activation code, THEN click the "resend" button, it'll activate your account.

But it doesnt' actually say anywhere that you have to enter that username.

8  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Jeweled Fall Wreath on: October 26, 2010 02:31:23 PM
My house needed some fall!  So I got a styrofoam wreath form, painted it a bronze metallic color, then hot glued on a ton of those little flat marble/jewel things you put in vases, tied a pretty organza ribbon around it and voila!  Fall is here.

The candlesticks are all recycled from Goodwill and were mismatched.  A couple of coats of Rustoleum Oil Rubbed Bronze paint and they look like they belong together!


Since I'm new, it won't let me post a picture, so there's a link.  Hopefully it'll work.

This is definitely going in her stocking!

Teriffic idea!
