One of the things that I love about arts and crafts is that there is no limit to the products that can be used to make beautiful crafts. Some of the most beautiful things cost next to nothing and are super easy to make. These glue gun earrings are the perfect example.
Four Front Doors has a great tutorial for how to make these pretty earrings. Can you believe that they are made by painting glue blobs? Who would have thought that glue could be so beautiful.
On top of being easy to make, I also like this project because it doesn’t cost much to make these earrings. A glue gun, paints, earring jump rings and E-6000 glue. The only thing you may not have on hand is a non-stick silicone mat, but I think that you could probably use waxed paper just as easily.
I hope you have fun creating your own glue gun earrings. Make a pair for yourself and as a gift for someone special.
I saw this colorful tea cosy and knew that I had to share it. I love the crocheted peonies that were added to the top. To me, this is what really sets this design apart. Sure, there are lots of pretty patterns out there for teapot warmers, but I think that this one from MeMe Rose is one that should go in your crochet pattern library.
Drop by MeMe Rose to get her free crochet pattern for this adorable tea cosy. Even if you aren’t one to crochet, you should still go take a look at her site. Beautiful pictures and some inspiring DIY and craft projects.
Tea cosies are a fun gift to knit or crochet. Not only are they quick and easy to make, but they also let you use up yarn that you have available in your stash. Simply mix a few colors together and you can create a colorful design like the one above. Or, if you want to get really creative you can make a teapot cosy that is more like a work of art. There are a lot of cosy patterns available, but here are a few of my favorites.
