Getting Crafty: The Christmas Edition–Quick Hit

Alright, I’m likely going to postpone the dramatic conclusion of this series next week, when I get the rest of my supplies.

But I’ve still got a little something to tide you over until then.

So, we decided to Secret Santa at work, and we had a limit of $20 to spend.

I didn’t even have to spend that much. I had all the supplies I needed. I took this:

Don’t mind the Theraflu. I’m fighting another cold.

And I made it into this:

Pretty cool, huh? I hope my recipient likes it!

See you next week!

Getting Crafty Part Two: Blue Champagne Flutes

Last week I shared with all of you the awesomeness that is Darby Smart. I also mentioned I purchased two boxes from them.

So, not only can you do wearable art, you can do housewares!

What do I mean?

The second box was a kit to design my own champagne flutes.

Now, for Black Friday I got some wine glasses, but you’re not supposed to sip champagne out of those (ok, you could, but it might not be the best idea.) So I figured it would be a good idea to have a set of flutes for company.

So, here’s what comes in the box: You get four flutes, a tube of sparkly paint in your color of choice (gold is also available), and a direction card. The design is to put little dots of sparkle around the base of each flute.

Now, y’all know I didn’t follow that direction, right?

Ok, not completely, anyway. Bottom right is closest to the original design, but I did wavy dots, fanned dots, and stars as well. The star one is my favorite. I like a set of glasses that obviously go together, but don’t have to match perfectly. So much fun, and quick to boot! I was finished with this in about 30 minutes or so.

I need more crafts to do. So glad it’s almost payday!
