So I FINALLY have my craft area re-organized, and I love going into the room now. It has totally renewed my crafting spirit! Now, I don't have a lot of funds right now (my piano lessons haven't started back up yet), so I'm mostly crafting with just what I have laying around. Here's what I did the other day: votive holders!
It's not the most magnificent thing I've ever made, but I think they're pretty cute. I used some empty cheese dip jars (my hubby's favorite), took off the labels, and Mod Podge'd on tissue paper. I wanted to try a couple of different things for embellishments, so I wrapped a scrap of lace around one and a simple ribbon around the other. I think the music one will look cute on my piano. :) I like the blue ribbon on the lace--it gives it a more casual accent (as opposed to, say, pearls, which I also considered putting on), and gives it a little extra color. It only took m about an hour to make both, including mod podge drying time, and there are sooooo many things you could put on them! I just used what I had on hand, but you could do different papers, ribbons, charms, jewels...even feathers and paint! I can't wait to get more supplies so I can try different things!
