Craft Randomness

Whilst I was cleaning and organizing my craft space, which by the way is a long work in progress, I came across a few crafts that I'd done and just put away without a proper posting.

This dice is a spin off from my hard rock candle post.

It's a simple 2" wooden block that I painted black.

Then I nailed upholstery tacks in the pattern of dice.

Here I used old cut up jeans to make these magnets.

I cut up the red and leather Levi tag and glued to the pebbles.

This plant holder, believe it or not, is a Styrofoam cup.

A quick few coats of acrylic paint, I then pierced small grommets right into the sides. I secured them with hot glue.

And lastly, dressed up soup cans. Obviously recycling cans into supply holders is nothing new, but I can't help but smile at the cheerfulness they bring.

No doubt, the best cans to use are the ones that have the pull off top because they leave a nice beveled edge.

I painted the cans first and glued on left over fabric finished with black ribbon.

Purple is my favorite color. I painted the purple and white, dotted the black lines and added left over purple daisy ribbon for fun.

I love this teal color.

Here I added ribbon and this fun rhinestone collage for some sparkle!
