The best part about this craft is that, not only can anyone, and I mean anyone, do it, but it probably cost me about three dollars. I am all about the cheap crafts, my friends. So here’s what you do:
You will need:
- hot glue gun and glue
- candle or glass jar*
- pruning shears
Step 1: Select your twigs from a dead tree and use the pruning shears to clip them off.
Step 2: Cut the twigs to the correct size, just a little taller than your candle or glass jar. By-the-way, the Hazelnut Cream candle? Mmmmmm…
Step 3: Use the hot glue gun to glue each twig to the glass.
Step 4: Fill in any gaps.
Step 5: Clip twig length if necessary.
Finished!So easy, right? I love that it gives my home a more “fall is in the air” feel and that I’m bringing the outdoors in and reusing something that otherwise would just be thrown in the trash. It’s great to turn “trash” into treasure.
So what crafts have you been making this month? Are you a developing crafter like myself? Or a seasoned one? I’d love to see your projects!
Oh! and by-the-way, I’ve been sewing like a mad woman over here, because I have fallen COMPLETELY in LOVE with little girl’s tunics! You saw the plaid one I made for Chelsea, and if you follow me on instagram, you saw a bit of Chelsea’s Fox Tunic pajamas. Well, I’ve also made a Mustard Yellow Polka Dotted Girl's Tunic and have it available in my shop! I’ll be sure to take some pictures of Chelsea in it so you can really see how it looks!
