Last weekend, my daughter,Crystal and her DH moved an hour and a half away. So this weekend, my youngest daughter and I went to go check out their new place.(it's fabulous!) Because they (my daughters)are always hearing about the creative blogs, I told them I would bring a couple of craft projects for us to work on. One project was to decoupage the first inital of our names. C - Crystal, A - Ashley and T - Terry....CAT....we think they turned out really cute.
The second craft project was to make a topiary. Have you ever seen how expensive these are? I decided to try to make one this weekend and while it was time consuming - it was not difficult at all. I had bought three green sprays, thinking this would be enough for three topiary's. But I found out that one topiary takes two sprays so I'll need to make a pitstop at Hobby Lobby someday to get more supplies.
I bought these tin pots at Dollar Tree but the color was not good...
Here's the afterward - I wished the picture was better - If I do say so myself - it turned out really good....
I told Crystal that the next time I come to visit, it will be craft time again and I think I know what we'll be doing..
Cork board covered in some fun paper with whte ribbon around the edges..
Fun, new use for the vintage drink caddies...and another way to use those white milk glass bowls that seem to be everywhere (now that I'll be looking, they won't be anywhere to be found)
Updated idea to update the out of date picture frames with decorative paper and wood letters....
Aren't these three just the cutest ideas and yet so easy?
