Feeling Crafty

Today was a beautiful day! I got so much accomplished. Don't you love days where you have nothing to do and can just stay home and get stuff done around the house? That doesn't seem to happen very often for me, so when it does, it's such a blessing!

Today I worked on my dining room chairs (they have been a pain!). I'm hoping I will get a post up on them before Christmas rolls around soon.

Anyways, I did a few small crafts today and wanted to show you. The first one I have seen quite a few times on different blogs.

I had an old bottle that was very plain that I used on an end table in my living room. I decided it needed some dressing up and gave it a little face lift. What do you think?

This was seriously so easy to do. I hot glued the beginning (at the top) and just wrapped it around the bottle. I tacked it on with some more hot glue every once in a while and then hot glued the end. Easy!

The other project I worked on was super simple too! I was sick of the coasters I have. They are lime green Hawaiian-like flowers that I had in college and they really don't go with our decor. So, I decided to make my own!

I got some unfinished wood squares at Hobby Lobby, painted the edges red (same paint I used on my accent wall in the living room), cut some scrap book paper, and Mod Podged it on! Here they are.

Yay! They look so much better than what I had before. They were very inexpensive too.
Here's the breakdown:
Wood squares: 2/$1 and I bought 4= $2
Paint: had on hand= $0
Scrapbook paper: 3/$1 and I didn't use a whole sheet= $.50
Mod Podge: had on hand= $0
Total cost: $2.50

Hope you enjoy! Have you done any small projects lately?
Pin It!
