My three year old has had a cold for three days, and if I don’t do somethin’ crafty I just might show up at a neighbors house and start moving furniture around.
And then I would probably just go ahead and move right in, and live on their couch until the sickness passes.
Not a bad plan.
Somebody make a t-shirt that says “Crafting for Sanity.”
I would wear that.
No, actually I wouldn’t.
Anywho, here’s my latest easy peasy DIY project.
These are some super cool wood crafting pieces from Lowe’s.
These sell for around $4 a pack, and they come in different shapes and sizes. There’s even super cute starts too.
My first project is with the small flowers on the right. (Larger flower project post is here.)
I am also using earring hooks and jump rings for this project. You don’t have to buy packages this big. I like craftin’ so I craft shop like I’m at Costco. Go big or go home.
For the wood pieces I used both spray paint and wood stain.
Mix it up. Have fun. Acrylic paint works great too.
Drill a small hole in the flowers near the top.
Since the wood is thick I used a small piece of gray embroidery floss to tie the flowers to the jump rings.
Super cute wood earrings!
These were stained with the same Minwax Ebony stain I used on the tablet stand I made.
Just think of the color possibilities with spray paint alone!
This is a super fast project, and costs under $2.50 a pair.
Thanks Lowe’s for hooking me up with these wood pieces and letting me be creative in a time when wiping runny noses is my reality. You’re a good friend Lowe’s. Like a Good Neighbor…
Oh, wait. That’s State Farm.
