1  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Barnacle "succulent" garden (picture heavy sorry) on: July 19, 2018 02:42:59 PM
I've been wanting to make some paper clay barnacles for awhile now and finally got around to it.  I used this site as a guide (http://www.designsponge.com/2012/07/diy-project-paper-clay-barnacles.htm).  I then made the "coral rock" the barnacles are attached to by using a half of a Styrofoam ball covered with hot glue My next step was to make more "succulent plants".  This time I used a lot of seed pods that I glued together in addition to the pine cones.  I am pretty pleased with how it all came together.

My very awesome swap partner (Kittykill) sent me the most amazing box I've ever received in my life.  When I received yet another awesome piece from her I felt I had to make her something else pink (her color choice)...this is what I came up with. (sorry to spoil the surprise)

3  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / School of Fish on: May 20, 2018 02:49:34 PM
I had some air-dry clay given to me that needed to be used right away.  I decided that it would be fun to make some fish. My husband ioves our little school of fish...they are growing on me lol

Thanks for looking
4  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Palm Frond Fish on: May 13, 2018 10:45:26 AM
I recently was in a craft swap where my partner requested something to hang outside that was tiki/beachy.  Which, as luck would have it, is my style as well.  I decided you cant get more tiki than making something out of palm frond so I went in my back yard, climbed a latter and found the perfect shaped fronds to make a fish out of.

5  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Felt and Pinecone Wreath on: May 10, 2018 01:44:03 PM
I was tasked with making a pink item for a swap I was in.  While stalking my partner I saw lots of felt wreaths and I decided to do my take on that.

I used 5 different colors of green felt for the leaves that I painted with fabric paint for some dimension and pinecones for the flowers

6  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Fun Cutting Boards on: April 05, 2018 08:52:32 AM
I recently had two family members with birthdays and decided to try wood burning.  I have to say that while wood burning is fun it is not as easy as it looks.  The places I burned are not real even Angry After I did the designs I sanded and sealed them so they could be used as cutting boards. 

7  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Driftwood and Pinecone Spring Wreath on: March 27, 2018 01:11:28 PM
I collected driftwood for about a year for this wreath.  There are 152 piece of wood (I of course didn't take a picture of the wreath before I turned it spring like) and I just layered them and attached them with small finishing nails.  The flowers are pine cones since every thing I do right now involves pine cones lol.

8  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Pine Cone Flowers on: March 19, 2018 04:42:13 PM
So I had such fun making the succulent garden that I decided to do a flower one. I used fake moss from the dollar store around the inner edge. 

9  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Pine Cone Succulent Garden on: March 12, 2018 08:51:30 AM
A couple of weeks ago I saw a pintrest post about a pine cone floral wall art and then I saw one about a pine cone succulent wreath (sorry I dont have the links) and decided to combine the two ideas.  

I collected a ton of pine cones from my neighbors yard (probably 25 to 30) and then went about cutting them in half with large clippers (used for cuttings metal).  After I cut them im half I took needle nose clippers and shaped them.  I used both end of the pine cone.  I then painted them and repainted them and then repainted them again before I was happy with the way they looked.  I really wanted them to have some depth and to look as closely to a real succulents as I could.  I am pretty please with how it turned out.  I enjoyed the project so much that I am going to make a flower one soon.

10  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / On The Go Race Track on: January 10, 2018 11:19:17 AM
I was tasked with coming up with a travel game for a boy age 5 whom loves cars.  The roads are made of felt and the carrier is wood.  I have a feeling I'll be making this again.
