I’ve mentioned several times, I also love to Craft. Normally, I spend a lot of time crafting when I’m making gifts for people. I make all kinds of things. This last week/weekend the husband and I decided to attack some crafts. It’s time to make some things for our home! See, I want to make some things for Christmas but we didn’t know if I would be up for it. It’s more and more likely that we will be having to do IVF soon. I can’t imagine wanting to be creative or build things during that process. We got a head start. I am so pumped that I thought I would share some of the things that were made in the last week!
This first project, I did myself. It was a DIY Pottery Barn candle holders. I got the idea from a video by Hometalk on YouTube. I think I saw it on Facebook. I didn’t want to do white. I’m on a Rose Gold kick and decided to give that a go.
I got three table legs from various heights at Home Depot. I removed the screws from the top of the legs to create a flat surface. I used 6- 4″ terracotta saucers. I used epoxy- 6000, to attach the legs and saucers. I let it dry for a day and then spray painted with a Rose Gold spray paint. Viola!
This next project, I did mostly on my own. My husband cut the pieces but I did everything else. Even handled some power tools. haha!
For the longest time, I’ve wanted a neat way to display my Christmas cards. I love sending and receiving Christmas cards! I really don’t have a great place to display them, so we made our own! I’m really excited about it. I can’t wait to use it. Yes, I love Christmas! haha.
This one, my husband helped a lot. He did all the cutting and put it together. I did the painting and decor. He did help pick out all the decor though. He found the dinosaurs! We are a house divided when it comes to sports, as you can see. I am so excited because we have nowhere to hang our stockings! We have a couple more hooks, hoping to fill them one day. 🙂
A Close up, so you can see the Dinos! haha.
I made the sign with vinyl and my Cricut!
This next one, I did on my own too. It’s on the other side of my entertainment center, across from the candle holders.
These are just re-purposed wine bottles. I love up-cycling! The big one in the middle. It was actually a huge bottle a friend brought over for a New Years party, years ago. I save all kinds of things but this is why! I never know when I’m going to need them. I just spray painted them with the same Rose Gold spray paint as the candle holders. I got some fake flowers and some little gemstones. I made the lettering with my Cricut and vinyl.
It took us a while to come up with a quote. I didn’t want anything cheesy or too common. Everyone uses, “Home Sweet Home.” Not this girl. My husband actually came up with this one. So, I guess he did help. It’s actually a quote from Jurassic Park!! It’s kind of double meaning for us. 1. To show our nerdy side and 2. Hope that we will make life soon! 🙂
This last thing, I made today. I make all my wreaths! I have many of them and various kinds. I’ll add a few of them but first I want to show off the one I made today! It’s for Fall, of course. 🙂
I liked it so much that I just had to put it up. So what that it’s like 3 weeks early! haha!!
Here are some of the others that I’ve made…
This is the one I just took down, I made it in the Spring.
This past Winter
Last Christmas. Yes, those are lights!
Since it’s almost Halloween.. I want to show my pumpkin from last year. I was still working and all of us make pumpkins for the community to vote on. I had to make sure he made it safely. I won. 🙂
Is this okay? Maybe I’ll do a post like once a year with all the crafts I make. I mean, I know this is a book blog but I enjoy seeing other people’s interests. If you would like to see more, I post everything on my personal instagram: lamoore8711
