DIY Friday – Sand Dollar & Burlap Vase

DIY Friday – Sand Dollar & Burlap Vase

After my wedding a little over a year ago, not many people had taken home these lovely centerpieces…………

they were all paid for through the florist and not rented or borrowed from our venue. We have been keeping them in our Office/Craft room ever since then. SOOOOO what to do with all these vases?!?!?! I (of course) searched Pinterest for ideas and inspiration, and felt a bit overwhelmed not knowing where in the house I could put it and find a home for, but I realized I didn’t need to make them all the same or use them all at once. I could make them seasonal or even get more creative and give them away as gifts. So here I go starting with one at a time……… today for DIY Friday we are doing a beach theme vase. Sand Dollar & Burlap!

As you can see I have 3 different sizes and plenty of each of them, so for this one I just chose the medium size.

I wrapped a wider burlap ribbon tightly around the vase and cut it accordingly leaving a little overlap to glue the seam; that way your not gluing all over the vase. I used E6000 industrial craft glue. This takes a bit to dry but will dry clear, and I had tied some twine a could times around it to hold the seam closed while it dried.

Then I just simply fed the twine through the sand dollar and carefully tied it into a bow!

And Voila!! The first of many more soon to come!

DIY Friday – Bird Feeders

DIY Friday – Bird Feeders

Happy Friday Lovelies!!

Today’s DIY Friday I made with my best friend’s twin boys whom I’m baby(big boy)sitting today. 😉

My Bestie really wanted some bird feeders for her yard, and she told me about this pic she had on her Pinterest board.

Another Pinterest project!! Hehe my favorite kind of project 🙂

So while they were away I figured to do this for her with the boys; it would be a fun thing to do with them.

We each got our own can (labels already removed and cleaned out) and carefully started painting.


  
Once we covered our cans in paint we had to wait for it to dry. So we placed them in the sun though they weren’t too happy about it but understood and they were excited to go to the park while we waited.


  
These are the semi-finished products before the bird seeds go in.


Don’t these look great?!?  These munchkins did a wonderful job!

Well, enjoy the rest of your Friday Lovelies!! Hope you enjoyed our little project 🙂
