October Monday Made-It
I just love this linky! I love seeing all the fantastic crafts out there in blogland! And I love sharing with you what I've made!!
So here's a couple of easy projects I made. Not really school related but crafting none the less!
First up is a wreath I made for football season!
All you need is a wreath and lots of ribbon.
I tied a long ribbon at the top. This is what I used to hang the wreath.
Next I cut all the ribbon in about 12 inches long. I think this was really too long and next time I do this, I will only cut it about 8-10 inches.
Then I tied the ribbons in double knots.
Around and around I go.
While I was tying the ribbons, I also painted the wooden letters I found at AC Moore. I took 3 coats of white craft paint.
Here's the finished product! The little football I also found at AC Moore. I really love it! Too bad the Giants are...well....TERRIBLE right now! Oh well! :/
Next project was a gift to a coworker.
I bought a black pumpkin and the letter stickers. I already had the paint and brush.
I taped off the stem with painters tape.
I used push pins in the bottom to hold the pumpkin so I could paint the bottom. It took a good 3 coats!
After it dried, I used the stickers to spell out the word HOPE. I had a couple of little gems that were also stickers.
I then took pink glitter ribbon and attached it with a pink straight pin.
I loved how it turned out too!
Can't wait to see everyone's projects! Head over to 4th Grade Frolics to check out more!
