Last December I got together with my best friend/neighbor Brittanie to make DIY holiday wreaths. We hot glued and gossiped and vowed to do craft sessions at least once a month from then on out. Nine months later, we finally had a follow-up craft sesh yesterday. Inspired by Pinterest, Brittanie made Halloween luminaries (I’m hoping she’ll post some pics on her blog!) and I created a twig candle holder (inspired by this) and a beaded necklaces (inspired by this).
This little candle holder came out better than I expected and looks really great with a tea candle inside. I think I’ll buy a package of green (prosperity) candles to burn in it. I love this little bit of nature on my desk.
These beads were leftover from a project I hosted for the kids on our camping trip. I actually love how the mixed colors look. I cut up one of the husband’s old t-shirts and the stretch is perfect. I can wear them all together or just a couple at a time, and they are perfect for Sebastian to tug on (instead of my skin!) while nursing.
Hopefully Britt & I can manage to actually get together for regular craft ‘dates’. Maybe we can buy and work through the P.S.– I Made This book.
