Canvas Clock with Bling

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.

Diamond Candle Ring

In my New Year Tablescape, I used this Diamond Candle Ring as the centerpiece.  It was very easy to make and can be used any time of the year.  I love the way it sparkles whether it’s from sunlight or candle light.

Here’s how I made it.

DIY Bling Tissue Box

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.

Making Fabric Glitter

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.

Painting Table Scatter

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.
