Crafting Projects

We have officially been in our home for 2 months now. What a crazy experience it has been! Now that I've finally taken time to sit down and upload pictures, here are some projects I've worked on in the last little while.

Flag Blocks


You can find the tutorial for these HERE . This is one of my favorite blogs!

Cherry Tone Firecrackers

I saw these at Quilted Bear for 20 bucks! Can you believe a cherry tone timber is only 1.97 at Home Depot? So I made my own and they turned out way cute! You can also make pumpkins for Halloween with them.

Bamboo Candlesticks

I found these bamboo candlesticks at Tai Pan for 2.25 each. They were originally green, and there were 4 of them. I glued them together and made these two big ones instead. I spray painted them black and tada! I like how they turned out.

Painted Letter

This "G" is from JoAnns, Painted black with craft paint. I think it will eventually go on a shelf when we hang one.

Hurricane vase

I already have the tutorial for this on my blog. I got the twine balls at Walmart. The apples and grass came from the dollar store.

Refinished Table

This was one of the first projects I did in our new house. It has been one of the hardest by far as well! Notice how the chairs don't match? That's because they suck. We are in the process of finding new ones, but haven't come across some we love (for a decent price). We got the table and 3 chairs on KSL for 30 bucks. Not bad. I do have before and afters for this project that I may post eventually!

So that's what I've been up to!

I actually like that your table and chairs don't match i think it looks pretty sweet! but Maybe I'm just weird :) I love that you're so crafty! it motivates me.
