So today was the day I mentally planned to do some kind of diamante pumpkin thing and while my son was at playgroup I got busy. And you know what? It was not good. Too much faff. So I started again. Kept it simple. And I’m much happier with the results.
Crafts for grown ups
A few weeks back I was asked if I would like to review some craft supplies for Viking, after oohh-ing and ahhh-ing over their site for a bit I decided that I’d like to have a play with their felt. Felt is one of my favourite craft supplies as it’s so easy to use and is so forgiving if you’re not the greatest at sewing! I love making felt finger puppets and as the colours were so bright and cheery I thought it would be fun to try and make some Minion finger puppets and I’m really pleased with how it worked out!
The other week in our local woods I saw some huge lumps of wood and instantly started planning at least a million tutorials with them. Then my dad kindly reminded me I had no room for huge lumps of wood at home. Boo. However he also pointed out that he had loads of bits of wood at home I could have and I figured if nothing else I would have room for some wooden drink coasters! Go me!
A couple of weeks ago I was invited by Direct Blinds to renovate a piece of furniture and as you can imagine I didn’t need asking twice! I love changing things to make them look prettier and with the discovery of a stained Ikea chest of drawers I figured this would not only be a great opportunity to try my first Ikea hack but also to indulge my love of the spray paints and try to create an ombre chest of drawers.
I had an idea this morning that I’d like to make some ombre feathers. No reason why. I couldn’t even work out what I would do with them to be honest, but they were one of those things that you try out in a rush and then think damn! I’m going to put these babies on EVERYTHING!!
