11  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Animal Ear Hair Clips + pattern link on: October 03, 2011 01:06:15 PM
I haven't decided yet, what I wanna be for Halloween but I came up with this idea for some cute little animal ears that are attached to hair clips! They'd work for so many types of costumes! I'm thinking a lion maybe (in a different color fur).

I posted the pattern on my blog in case anyone wants to make some Smiley http://www.gleefulthings.com/blog/?p=2883

12  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Candy-clops + pattern link on: October 01, 2011 03:23:30 PM
I've had a really short attention span lately when it comes to amigurumi. But I really wanted to make something for Halloween. These little dudes were so quick to whip up that I made a small army of them! Cheesy

If you want to make some too, I posted the pattern on my blog: http://www.gleefulthings.com/blog/?p=2576

13  Halloween / Halloween Decor and Parties / Halloween Jar Luminaries + tutorial link on: October 01, 2011 03:14:21 PM
I've been collecting jars for several months because I had an idea to make a ton of luminaries with them. I ended up getting inspired to use a few of them for Halloween and this is what I did with them!

I pretty much just covered jars with mod podge and tissue paper and then cut out the shapes from black construction paper. And I had to throw in some glitter because everything is better with glitter! Cheesy

I have a tutorial on my blog if you'd like to make some yourself: http://www.gleefulthings.com/blog/?p=2668

14  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Reversible Dog Bandana + Pattern link on: October 01, 2011 03:00:48 PM
I made my dog a reversible bandana for Halloween. She has a hot dog costume for Halloween but she needed something to wear until them! Tongue It has bats on one side and a cutesy Halloween print on the other. I designed it so that it fits onto her collar rather than being tied around her neck so there's no chance of it falling off. Pretty spiffy! And if you wanna make one too, I posted the pattern on my blog along with a tutorial on how to make it: http://www.gleefulthings.com/blog/?p=2775

15  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Bearies! + pattern link on: July 07, 2011 10:12:18 AM

I've been making lots of little "bearies"! It started out with the panda berry below but then I thought it would but fun to make a bowl full of mixed bearies! So then came the koala berry, polar berry, and grizzly berry.

But I wanted some that looked more like berries than bears so I found this perfect pink sparkly yarn!

I shared the pattern on my blog: http://www.gleefulthings.com/blog/?p=2030

I hope you like! Cheesy

16  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Hula Hoop Making Tutorial Link on: March 14, 2011 02:20:42 PM
Hi! I hope this is the right board for this. I assume it counts as a plaything! Smiley

I love to hula hoop and have been making my own hoops for a couple years now. I got some requests for a tutorial on how I make them so I finally posted one on my blog! http://www.gleefulthings.com/blog/?p=1204

They're a lot bigger and better than the one's we used as kids. I also show how to make them really pretty with sparkly tapes! Smiley

Here's a list of supplies you'll need:
- Polyethylene tubing
- 1 connector that fits your tubing
- PVC pipe cutters
- Sharpie
- Tape Measure
- A flat iron or blow dryer
- Scissors
- Pretty tapes
I have links on my blog to places these things can be purchased.

I don't mean for this to be a go see my blog! kinda post, but the tutorial is really long and picture heavy so I'm not going to repost it here. It can be found here: http://www.gleefulthings.com/blog/?p=1204 I hope you enjoy! Smiley

17  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Discussion and Questions / What to do with my lava lamp? on: January 19, 2011 10:21:29 AM
Anyone ever done anything creative to a lava lamp? Last night, I picked one up at the thrift store but the top cap piece is missing. And I've always though their bases were kinda ugly so I'm trying to think of something to do to it.

The only thing I can come up with is knitting a little hat to replace the missing top piece! hehe Tongue
18  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Simple Slouchy Hat +Pattern Link on: December 28, 2010 10:31:35 AM

I wanted a really simple, but nice looking slouchy hat that I could easily do stripes or solids with, so I designed this hat. I made it using a kinda bulky yarn (Paton's Shetland Chunky). It's a bit thicker than worsted weight so it makes a cozy hat! It's a really easy hat to make, even a beginner could handle it Smiley

I hope you like! Smiley

19  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Shooting star hair clips + tutorial link on: December 11, 2010 10:36:18 AM

I had some Christmas tinsel garland left over from another project I made and I wasn't gonna let it go to waste! So I bought a glitter foam sheet and made shooting stars! Now I'm wanting to make lots of tiny stars for my hair.

I hope you like! Smiley

I posted the tutorial on my blog if anyone is interested: http://www.gleefulthings.com/blog/?p=558. They're pretty simple though! Smiley
20  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Blythe Flower Headbands (+ link to pattern) on: November 30, 2010 11:28:57 AM

Ive been meaning to share this pattern for a while now! I had to sell my Blythes a while back so I kinda forgot about this pattern and all of the other things Id made for them. It always weirded me out that some of their clothes cost just as much as mine! So I was all about making as much stuff for them as I could. Unfortunately, I lack the patience to sew tiny clothes. So everything I made for them was crocheted or knit. This is a really easy, pretty accessory for your Blythe dolls! I hope you like! If this is popular, Ill probably post a few of my Blythe hat patterns too. Pattern: http://www.gleefulthings.com/blog/?p=508
