Two cute things to share today. Both ideas came from Hometalk.com
Kristen needed a Buddy Basket to take to Regionals to give to one of her team mates. Being the creative (and penny pinching) girl that I am, I thought, “Ah ha! I’ll make a container!” So, out came the empty hamburger box, the roll of jute and the glue gun. Oh, boy, oh, boy! Hours of gluing later and a countless number of glue sticks consumed (and fingers burned) I had succeeded.
Kristen’s friend likes zebra print, so we bought some fabric to make the liner – I’m TERRIBLE at making a good box liner. All of the tutorials make it seem so easy, but it was HARD! We filled the box with L’s favorite things like food and Dr. Pepper and a cute flowered headband I found on clearance at the fabric store and away we went. She loved it! My fingers took a week to recover.
I thought this idea was so cute when I saw it and it goes with the floral/romantic theme I’m trying to put together in my half bath.
So, I pulled together my supplies:
Empty oatmeal canister, roll of shelf liner and vase from the dollar store and the colored pencils Karra gave me for Christmas. And I colored the flowers.
Kristen said it looked like it was meant for the roses to be pink. And then I had to put it all together – oh, boy.
I have since added black washi tape around the top and bottom, but didn’t take another picture. I think the tape finishes it nicely. Now, to paint the bathroom and do something with that floor……
And That’s What I Did Myself Successfully! on the Hobby Farm.
