Crochet Bangle


How about turning old accessories into new with little creativity....like this one. I am making crochet flowers these days and hot glued some on a chunky wooden bangle I had. I painted it first with blue acrylic paint and it goes well with the colors of my crochet flowers...


creating a nice look together....





 Here is the finished look...what do you say... thumbs up ?

Origami



Hello Dear ....I know you all must be ready to enjoy your weekend....me too. But my hand will be and should be busy cleaning up my craft corner...it needs some serious attention.  I need to do some sorting and organizing. I guess sometimes in taking care of other things, I tend to neglect my craft supplies and related things, and most of the time I just shove them in big poly bags...and then things are out of sight so out of mind.This is something, I am going to change this weekend. Fingers crossed.

 But for now I want to share these cute origami boxes that I have made. I guess these are great for giving small gift items and keeping small things like pins and paper clips in order. I have used construction paper and papers from old books and magazine to make them. Here is the link that has a easy demo ...hope you will enjoy.

Ruffled Ribbon


Hello there....hope you are having good time. We are half way through the month of January so quickly. This is my second project of the year...a quick recycling one. I loved this polka dot ribbon of my daughter's old dress. Since she is no longer wearing it I thought why not reusing the ribbon to dress up a plain skirt that she already has. I simply make ruffles and stitched it. I guess her skirt looking nice with new addition. What do you think? 















I guess this will make a nice flower for hair clip too.








Pretty right? Bye for now....see you again with a next post.

Ribbon Flowers


Hello Dear friends ....I am glad to be back to my blogging world. Hope this year I will be consistent in my posting, bringing new ideas and sharing what I have learned watching others. Today's post is ...as you can see about head clips with fancy bows and flowers. I was watching some lovely you tube posts and tried making clips with the material I already have. This is what I made today...these are really simple. I will be doing one more post on this soon. I would really love to make Kanzashi flowers that I have seen...will certainly try that one. 












I burned the edges for this red flower....and added black beads in the middle.









I have recycled the cute rabbit and butterfly ...looking neat on this flower. Hope you like it.
