In preparing to write my newest short story for the HOLIDAYS WITH JANE: TRICK OR SWEET collection, I
SO...here are a few things that I was able to make using either 1.) items I already own OR 2.) inexpensive items from the dollar store.
I saved some glass soda bottles because I'm that girl who saves glass bottles for *possible* future craft projects. (It drives my husband batty but I remind him that we're saving money!) ;-) I saw this very cute craft idea using glass bottles and spray paint.
So...I didn't look at the reference pic before I spray painted. And I don't eat candy corn so I forgot what the color design was. Grrr. It's fine. Really. What I learned: Possibly try out different shades of orange and yellow?
I also save old pickle jars, jam jars, etc. for craft projects. I had this candle jar from the dollar store. I spray painted the outside with "pumpkin orange" and wrapped raffia around the top. I stitched a few fake autumn leaves together and then hot glued the bundle to the raffia. *Be sure to glue the leaves and the twine away from the top edge of the jar!* You don't want it to catch on fire, right? (That would surely be the end to my crafting days, guys.)
I'm pretty happy with how this turned out. :)
In "Emma Ever After", Emma "borrows" Knightley's drill and makes some cute centerpieces.
IT DIDN"T HAPPEN. Crafting fail, guys. Lack of time on this project. Maybe I can get a few more hours in my day? Please?
