31  Thirty Second Earrings in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by everythingemme on: March 16, 2012 11:08:51 PM
I purchased a dress at a yard sale for a dollar.  In the process of refashioning the dress, I removed the buttons from the dress.  Coincidentally, a friend visited wearing button earrings identical to buttons I had removed from the dress.  I bought earring backs from Joann's Fabrics for $1.29.  While my hot glue gun was heating up, I snipped the the hooks off the back of the buttons.  I applied the hot glue to the back of the buttons and then applied the posts. In less than a minute, I created a pair of incredibly cute earrings!

32  Easy & inexpensive fabric covered headbands in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by everythingemme on: March 15, 2012 05:10:09 PM
I started with a plain, plastic headband which cost less than $.50.  I traced the headband onto the material and then added a half an inch all around for leeway.  If you plan on making more than one headband, you can also trace the headband onto some newspaper to create your own pattern which can cut down significantly on the prep time.  I used hot glue to attach the fabric to the headband starting at the end and folding the material underneath.  I don't recommend gluing the material to the outside of the headband because it leaves a noticeable bump.  Pull the material taut or it will twist and bump around the sides of the headband.  I decided to use felt for a lining because I knew I would not have to hem it before applying it.  And voila!  A cute and stylish headband for a fraction of the price!

33  Quick and Easy Seashell Floral Arrangment in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by everythingemme on: March 14, 2012 09:55:38 AM
This arrangement takes very little time to make and is relatively inexpensive.  I purchased two glass vases for less than $2 from Garden Ridge and two packs of seashells and two arrangements at Joann's using the 40% off circular that comes in the newspaper and mail.  I filled the bottom of the vase with shells until the wooden stalks sat at the height I wanted them at.  I then filled the vase the rest of the way up with shells, evenly distributing them so that the stalks did not tilt.  I took the twine that was wrapped around the stalks and stuffed it haphazardly around the top of the vase and voila!  A beautiful yet simple arrangement!
