They are kinda fun because the twine frays and so it doesn’t have to be perfect. The candlelight looks really cool when its dark and it peeks through. And even though you can’t see it in this picture very well, the glitter adds just a cute little shimmer to them. These would be fun to make in different sizes for perhaps a backyard beach party or BBQ for a simple cute decoration!
So, I am always trying to find something to keep the kids occupied. AND I’m always sorting through magazines that accumulate and trying to save the articles I want and then recycle them. Well, a couple of years ago I saw a craft idea in one of those magazines, a simple one, using paper plates and pretty much whatever other craft materials you had around the house. So, We got creative. We grabbed our paper plates (we had the heavier duty Chinet plates that worked well) Then I gave the kids my old magazines and let them have at it; their job was to find face pictures for their ‘mask’. We had some old paint sticks that we wrapped in leftover material and hot glued on buttons for decoration. These were used for handles. Yarn was added for hair, and we had leftover beads and hair glitter we decorated them with.
Hey! It’s been a few days since I have posted on here! Busy week I guess, can’t believe it’s already Friday! Well, I’ve been going through all of my pictures of projects I have created over the past couple years, and this one was one I did about a year ago, for two of my friends’ birthdays. I just took some postal wrap (I came across 5 rolls for $1.00 once and couldn’t pass them up!) Anyways, I just wrapped the gifts, and then took out some extra scrap booking papers that I had, and used my Cricut to cut out some flowers. I wrapped a ribbon around the package and then glued the flowers together on top. I added a little sparkle in the middle for the finishing touch, and then took one of my glitter pens for a little extra decoration!
I got really creative (HaHa) and figured out how to get the Cricut to cut the birthday letters out, and then made a little matching card to go with it…
