Simple Projects

Here's two Easy Peezy Projects!!  The votives I ordered from Quick Candle  so easy so fast and real cheap….great for weddings or big affairs.  So I sponged brushed on mod podge and craft glitter and voila!  Then I put about 2 dozen across the mantle lit them and added friends and an ordinary night buy the fire took on a magical glow.  The next project was once again exploiting the uses of
coffee filters!  I took the smallest filter about three inches in diameter dyed them pink with a crystal light powder (no food coloring in the house) soaked them for an hour ,make sure you pull them apart so they are a bit easier to use when done drying DSC_0037
and so they get saturated with color.  Drain and let dry for two to three days or more.  Find a round wooden wreath shape about an inch or two wide. Then take that filter fold in half and half and half again until it looks like a flower and hot glue around the wreath base.  Make them tight together so it looks full add until it's got the look you want!  Some seambinding ribbon to finish off!!  Show me yours would love to see.DSC_0028
