11  HOME SWEET HOME / Exterior Decorating / Yard Art / Gardening: Completed Projects / Flirty Birdie Bird Feeder on: February 22, 2017 01:33:57 PM
I repurposed a thrift store cup & saucer into a bird feeder. Can't wait to fill it up and watch the bird buffet!
12  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Pearl Embellished Turtleneck on: February 21, 2017 06:35:45 AM
This is my first post in a long time. I took a craft hiatus for many personal reasons, but now that I've started back up, I can't seem to stop! And it feels great to be back!  Grin

I usually stay away from turtlenecks, because I feel frumpy in them. Then I saw this idea from brit+co, and decided to give it a try.

I used all materials I had on hand: old black sweater, pearl beads (from a previous swap project, actually) and an old headband. The only thing I needed was embellishment glue, and I got a mini 3-pack of Aleene's fabric glues for $3.

I'm pretty pleased with how it turned out. It was an inexpensive, relatively simple project, though a bit time consuming. Though the glue is supposed to be washable, I think I'll go back over time, and reinforce each bead with thread.

And it will certainly help make the gloomy weather we've been having lately a bit more tolerable.  Wink

Mod Podge is super easy! I usually give it an hour or so between layers -- but I'm an impatient crafter, so maybe read the label first. Wink

Thanks so much! It was super easy to make, and makes me smile every time I look at it!  Grin

I haven't posted in forever! I've made a few things here and there, but have definitely been in a major creative rut. Luckily, I've been feeling really inspired lately, and one of my goals for the new year is to be more crafty.
Yesterday I whipped up a simple jewelry dish, using things I already had in my supply stash -- small white plate, mod podge & glitter. I finished the whole thing off with a few coats of clear acrylic.
First completed project of 2015!


16  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / Where To Find Things To Recycle / Baby Food Jars/Mini Jars on: July 20, 2014 11:14:03 AM
After bouncing around for a few years, I'll be moving into a new apartment with friends in a couple weeks. I've pretty much been given free reign for decorating the kitchen/dining area (Grin), and had an idea to repurpose tiny jars for bulk spices.
Does anyone know where I might be able to find them for free/super cheap? I'm located in the (San Francisco) East Bay (Fremont/Hayward/Union City) area.
Thanks for any leads! Smiley
