To Tie For

We did family portraits a few weeks ago & in preparation, I made some bow ties for my boys. Here is what I did….

I started with a length of canvas (left over from a previous project) & cut off a small square section.

Image

I then folded and ironed the edges.

Image

Image

Next I glued the edges in place.

Image

Image

Then I folded the middle of the square together and glued it in place.

Image

Then I took a long, slim piece of canvas and wrapped it around the middle of the bow tie and glued it in place.

Image

Image

Finally, I took a small clip….

Image

…..and glued it to the back of the bow tie.

My next post will have the completed project, so come on back y’all!

The Sweet Life

I whipped up this gum ball machine early this morning as a last minute birthday gift. (So it’s not for sale on my Etsy site.)

I started with a flower pot, it’s corresponding dish, a fish bowl and a wooden knob.

I used a colored flower pot, but you could also you a terracotta one and just spray paint it yourself. I used hot glue for this project, but it’s not the ideal glue. I would suggest Gorilla Glue. I began by turning the flower pot upside down and gluing the fish bowl onto the bottom.

Next, I turned the dish upside down and glued the wooden knob onto it.

I had to rush off to a birthday party, so I had no time to snap a good picture, but here is the completed project.

So easy & so fun! Definitely something to try for yourself. Happy Hunting!
