1  Black and orange wreath in Halloween Decor and Parties by chrissiepriss on: October 26, 2008 09:43:43 PM
I made this wreath out of black roses for Halloween:

I ordered the roses off of e-bay b/c they were much cheaper there than at my local craft store.  Then I cut a wreath form out of several pieces of cardboard.  I cut the stems off of the roses and hot glued them to the cardboard wreath form.  Then I attached an orange ribbon to the top of the wreath and used another piece of orange ribbon to hang it on the door.

2  decorative tray in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by chrissiepriss on: October 26, 2008 07:13:28 PM
I found a frame/tray at a thrift store for $1.00.  I painted it black and put a page from a book of Georgia O'Keefe prints in it.  Now it is a decorative tray!

3  Dennis Kucinich portrait in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by chrissiepriss on: July 27, 2008 12:06:58 AM
This is my first oil painting. (I was required to paint a portrait for a class.)   

His hair does not look gray on the real thing, it's just the flash on the camera...

4  Matisse print redone in blue in orange in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by chrissiepriss on: July 27, 2008 12:05:05 AM
I was assigned to create a painting using only one set of complementary colors in an art class that I took.  I chose to paint one of my favorite Matisse prints. 

I'm not sure if I can post a copy of the real Matisse print due to copyright stuff and craftster rules, but if you're curious, just google "harmony in red." 

I was kind of thinking that the stuff outside the window would be in brighter, more artificial colors b/c the woman in the picture doesn't really know the outside world, though the prospect of knowing it may be exciting to her.  It was kind of a stretch though, so I don't know...

5  candle holder in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by chrissiepriss on: July 26, 2008 11:55:01 PM
I found this interesting looking cannister and decided to turn it into a candle holder.  I put sand in the bottom to hold the candle in place, and after it was lit for a few hours, the wax melted into a new shape.

6  Fine art bathroom wall plaques in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by chrissiepriss on: July 26, 2008 11:50:37 PM
I am really interested in art history, so I frequently cut prints out of art history books and use them for craft projects.  I cut out several prints of famous nudes - particularly fitting for a bathroom - and glued them each onto a wooden plaque that I had painted white.  I think they make great decorations, and they were super cheap.  I bought the plaques at a craft store, and the art books at Half Price for a couple of dollars each.

7  Letter stand/monogrammed flower pot in Exterior Decorating / Yard Art / Gardening: Completed Projects by chrissiepriss on: July 26, 2008 11:46:03 PM
I'm new to craftster and this is my first post.  I don't really know what to call this craft, so if any of you have an idea, please let me know.  My boyfriend, dog, and I all have names beginning with the letter "C," so I made this letter plant stand to put next to the plants by our front door. First, I bought a wooden box, wooden stick, wooden plaque, and wooden "C" at a craft store.  Then I painted each of them and glued them together when they dried.  I mixed some raw umber in with the white paint so the plaque and box would be a little bit shabby looking, rather than really bright.  I drilled a couple of tiny holes in the bottom of the box for water to drain, put some gravel in it to weight it down, and then put soil and a small plant in the rest.  The whole project took about 3 hours, including going to the store.
