I’m a huge Pinterest fan, but so many of the best ideas on there require Mod Podge, and being in the UK I thought we couldn’t get it here. WRONG! I found it in hobbycraft – the most obvious place to look. I am beyond excited about all the random stuff I can make with it.
I started with this easy Upcycled Vase.
I originally made these lovely easy tin can holders for a baby shower I threw on a teeny tiny budget. Since then I’ve used them a lot for a little rustic decoration. They are cheap and easy to make and are a pretty way to recycle old tin cans.
I’d seen a ton of posts about making canvas art using melted crayons, and I just had to give it a go! It seemed so simple and easy, even I could do it.
It turned out ok… I like what I made but definitely something I need more practice with!
So I bought a hot glue gun because I saw one in hobbycraft. I always thought that I had TONS of projects that I wanted to make, if only I had a glue gun to make them. So all excited, I bought it, got home and… couldn’t think of a single thing I wanted to make.
Lucky for me I have an adorable niece. She’s not actually my niece, she is the daughter of a friend from college, but we call ourselves her Aunties and she’s always happy to see us (except for a while after Auntie K yelled over some spilt hot tea) so it’s close enough. So anytime I am craving a little craft action with no particular project in mind, I usually create something useless fun for her. Like this Initial Button Canvas. Totally useless but fun for me to make!
