In the midst of everything I had going on this month, I decided to throw some crafting into the mix.
Most of this was done early in October, not long after I saw this pin on pinterest:
I can't remember a time when I didn't love to create so Pinterest can be a huge time suck for me if I let it.
I try to only pin things I see other places rather than scroll through pages and pages of pins.
I did also complete another craft project this month and I'll share that one in another post.
I liked the simplicity of this craft, plus the fact that she said most of it came from the dollar store.
I went to my local Dollar Tree and was able to find all the glass candle pedestals and plates.
I found the orange pumpkins she used, but when I realized they were actually Styrofoam, I passed.
I ended up finding already "glittered and glammed" pumpkins at Walmart for less than $4 each, so I just picked them up there.
I also picked up heavy duty adhesive suitable for glass and the looking glass spray paint she mentions in her post.
|See that little rat? Motion detector rat also from the Dollar Tree.|
I would say this was a Pinterest WIN!
It was easy even though I don't do a lot of spray-painting and had never worked with that kind of glue/adhesive before.
Just be sure if you try this, you work in a well ventilated area as she suggests; otherwise, you'll be high on fumes!
I'm linking this post up with Mama Kat later in the week, in response to her weekly writing prompts. Specifically, she asked "Create something inspired by Pinterest; was it a Win or a Fail?"
Those came out beautiful! And with the pumpkins premade, easy peasy. Gotta love that! Popping by from Mama Kat's :-)ReplyDelete
OMG! Yes, definitely a win! I need to get crafty again... it's such a great exercise for the mind.ReplyDelete
