That looks really pretty! I love the colors.

Here's my attempt at a flower:

I had to sew it all by hand. Good thing it's red or else you probably would have seen the blood spots from all the times I pricked my finger!

4  Flower Hair Band in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by bumblev on: August 06, 2003 07:57:54 AM
Why buy one when you can create your own?

Flower Hair Band

  - rubber band
  - flower
  - pretty bead
  - string

1. Take apart your flower so that all your are left with are the soft petals. There should be a hole in the middle where the plastic center used to go through.

2. Cut a six inch long piece of string. Thread your bead to the center of the string. Make sure your bead is large enough so that it can't slip through the flower hole.

3. Grab both ends of the string and push through the center of the flower.

4. Use the string to tie a tight double knot around the rubber band, sandwiching the flower between the bead and the band.

5. Cut the string close to the knot.

6. Wear the flower in your hair and go to a luau!

5  Decorating Blank Walls in Interior Decorating: Discussion and Questions by bumblev on: August 07, 2003 06:14:33 PM
Ok, I'm not sure if painting the walls of your house can be crafty but here goes!

A couple of weeks ago we began fixing up our kitchen and living room. Since they're joined, we wanted the paint on the walls to really define that one section was the kitchen and the other section was the living room. So, we painted the kitchen walls white with a foot high red border on top and the living room red with a foot high white border on top. It looks great but there's one wall in the kitchen I want to do something fun with. Here are my ideas:

I would love to hear your opinions on which one you like best. Heck, feel free to let me know that all of them suck and give me new suggestions! Thanks!

6  Easiest Fish Ever! in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by bumblev on: August 06, 2003 07:38:29 AM

Enjoy the zen-like environment a fish creates but don't enjoy scooping poop out of the water? Then this is the project for you!

Fake Fish Vase

  - vase
  - tattoo paper for your printer
  - varnish
  - paintbrush
  - fish image

1. Print out the fish image on tatoo paper. Here's the image I used:

2. Carefully cut out the fish and even more carefully, pull the paper backing off the tattoo.

3. Trying to prevent as many folds as possible, stick the tattoo on the back side of the vase. The tattoo paper is extremely fragile so take your time. Don't worry if small pieces tear or rip off. It will just look like your fish has battle damage!

4. Since these tattoos usually come off with water, you're going to want to protect your little fishy. Gently apply your paint-on varnish, going just barely out side of the fish edge. Let dry.

5. You're done! Add water, put the vase on your desk, and laugh when people ask if they can feed your fish.
