It's been a pretty crafty week. I've been invited to a baby shower next month, so I made this:
|baby blanket - purple and furry on one side, soft gray jersey on the other|
|The colors match better (between the blanket and the hat) in person than in the photos. :)|
And a card.....
I hope the mom-to-be likes them.
I had picked up some Dollar Tree solar lights to try this cute project. It turns out that Dollar Tree solar lights are the teeniest bit smaller than the opening of an old blue mason jar, so I cut a piece of black cardstock and hot-glued it to each solar light, to make the whole thing work.
As soon as the hot glue was cooled, they were ready to go. I love these, because they don't alter the jar in any way, so they aren't diminishing them at all. These are fun night lights in my kitchen - I've enjoyed them a lot!
|These glow quite nicely...but don't photograph very well....|
I made a cute little something for a cute little someone's Easter basket, but I don't want to spoil the surprise.....
|Now that the upper piece is repaired, these two pieces fit together....|
I also used a little glue to repair this pumpkin cutout. The upper piece had cracked near the center, but with some Elmer's glue and time, now it's good as new.
|...like this! I will put it in my fall decoration bin for next season.|
