I’ve really got to stop looking at sites on the Internet. I see so many beautiful things that are way out of my budget. This is what happened when I was looking at Pottery Barn’s site. They had some ‘Crystal Bracelet Napkin Rings’, but they were $25.00. That’s just a little more than I wanted to pay for a little bling on the table.
While shopping at the Dollar Tree, I got one of my bright ideas, and I really like how it turned out. The project was unbelievably easy to make, and the results added just the right finishing touch to my Winter Tablescape!
When I’m in my craft room, I have a tendency to lose track of time. There have been times when I’ve become so engrossed in a project that I’ve watched the sun come up. One of the last times I did that, I realized that I needed a clock in there. But, knowing me, I couldn’t just buy a clock… I had to make one.
Here’s the latest project for my craft room. A DIY Canvas clock… With Bling.
It never fails, when I need a tissue, they’re in the other room. And they’re always hidden under a tissue box cover because I can’t stand the patterns that are on those boxes. The craft room is no exception. Since I’ve been working on redoing the craft room, (that’s a whole story in itself that I’ll tell when it’s completed) I decided to make something pretty to hold the tissues. This could be used in any room & done in any color of your choice.
I’m a ‘girly’ girl and I like feminine clothes. I love getting dressed up to go out with my hubby. But for shopping, around the house, picnics and work, I like T-Shirts. They’re comfortable & easy to take care of. But when I buy my T-Shirts, I buy Men’s. Why? Women’s T-Shirts are cut wider & shorter than the Men’s shirts. I like my shirts to cover my bum. And the sleeves on a women’s T Shirt are very short. I don’t do sun very well, so I like my arms covered. But, like I said, I’m a girly girl. How do I combine the two? Yep, you guessed it. Glitter! Besides, what girl doesn’t like a little ‘bling’?
I was shopping for T-Shirts for my hubby, when I found this T-Shirt for me! It’s a nice shirt, very patriotic for all of the holidays in the summer, but I didn’t necessarily want it to look like it came from the men’s department.
I washed & dried the shirt, without adding any fabric softener, so that the fabric glitter would adhere better.
When I’m putting together a tablescape, one of the items that I love to use is table scatter, or flat back marbles. It always adds a little ‘bling’ to the table & helps to bring more of the chosen color towards the center of the table.
But what if I can’t find or don’t have the color I want? I make my own. It’s easy to do and with the colors of paints available, you can have your table scatter match any table.
