Don't you enjoy a day that has nothing on the agenda but what ever you wish to do ? I had one of those days. I started it by doing some laundry. Then I worked on a little craft.
I picked up this little pumpkin at The Dollar Tree the other day. But it did not look exactly like this. It was topped with a cheap raffia bow that was easily detached. I went to my ribbon box and found some of my black and white gross grain ribbon. ( I have mentioned here that black and white ribbon is my go to for crafts and I always keep several rolls of dots, stripes and gingham on hand) I simply tied the polka dot ribbon in place and what a difference it makes in the look of a cheap little Dollar Tree Pumpkin.
While at Dollar Tree, I found these.....
You never know what you will find at Dollar Tree. You have to look at everything and view it with eyes that are open to using things in different ways.
Here is what I used this for.
Now my little wax threaders are ready to give to special stitchers. The beeswax was free, the crock pot was $2 and the paint liners were about $2. So this was a very thrifty craft.( We won't think about all the money Marvin put into his bee keeping endeavor!!) Several people have asked if we are going to sell our honey. We tell everyone that it would be about $200 a jar.:) We would much rather bless our friends with the fruits of our labor.
What have you been up to at your house lately? I love to picture my blog friends puttering around their homes, enjoying a quiet day at home.
