Take boring clay flower pot and turn them into sweet snowman ornaments with Crafts By Amanda’s easy tutorial.
I am not a very good artist. Fortunately, my friend Colleen at Just Paint It is not only a good artist, she is a great teacher. She did a great knock off of Pottery Barn’s Holly Leaf Drop Cloth Pillow. Click here to see her full tutorial. Happy crafting!
I wanted one more little Christmas tree for our buffet table. Just a little one… I also wanted to get rid of some of my scrap paper stash. This is the easiest thing in the world to do. If you can cut pieces of paper into squares, then you can do this craft. Here’s what […]
Epsom salt… Isn’t that what people soak sore feet in? I wouldn’t know. I only use it for crafts and decorating. Epsom salt is a fabulous, frosty looking salt crystal. You can pick it up at any drug store or grocery store in the health/pharmacy section. I use it a lot during the winter. It looks […]
