I decided to try some of the crafts I’ve had on my Crafts to Make Someday Pinterest board. I’ve been pinning like crazy, but haven’t taken much time to actually craft and that’s the fun part!
First off, this cute bracelet is a copy of this one. All you need is wooden beads, leather lace and a pretty button. I like how I can wear it with the button in the front to show it off or in the back.
Next up was to make a copy of this bird nest necklace. I think it turned out pretty cute for my first attempt. What do you think? I used the 24 gauge wire, but you can also use 20 gauge for a more delicate look.
I saw this road trip pillow case and thought it would be perfect for our Disney trip coming up over Fall break. It has a big pocket on the front to stow night time reading and a little friend. Lauren is loving the color blue right now and she loves puppy dogs, so when she saw this fabric at Joann’s she grabbed the bolt right off the rack. I picked up a yard of fabric, a package of jumbo rickrack, a craft felt square, two fat quarters of fabric for the pocket, and a piece of webbing for the handle. I think it turned out darn cute and she loves it.
I made a run to Michael’s yesterday and they had a bunch of the $1 toy aisle stuff on clearance, so I picked up a spiral notebook for .25 cents and a piece of Disney scrapbook paper. I remembered this idea I saw the other day. I cut out a Mickey head, a bow and used my Cricut for the letters. Now Lauren has her own personalized autograph book for Disney. She LOVES it and can’t wait to get all her favorites to sign!
Lauren also got in on the jewelry making and made a little stretch bracelet. Thanks, Nancy, for the little beading kit!
Well, it was a fun and productive craft weekend. Now to think about what to try next.
