I finally started my spring craft projects.
I had left the winter items up through February just for the seasonal expression – packed it all away (until I give it away), and took two days to wash my windows before adding some springtime newness. I planned these crafts back in December/January – I have a to-do dream book of stuff to create – and it’s been a joy to actually get a couple of things done.
Here’s the illuminaries I did this week.
|I made 6 and used random jars I had been saving - this is a mayo jar.|
|I used regular white school glue (watered down just a little) and the lightest blue tissue paper I could find and cut or tore it into little pieces, no more than an inch and half or so.|
|I used green felt to make the grass and flower stem, and yellow tissue for the flower. This one will go in my son's bathroom.|
|These are for my 'joy' table - I'll share the finished project - well, when it's finished!|
|And this one is in place on the kitchen counter. (the final one goes in our bathroom - picture later)|
Aren't they just lovely? The thing is we actually have evenings every so often w/out electricity and so these will really be used! Just the way it should be - pretty but serviceable too!
I'm visiting the Rock N Share porch-swing and hopping over to I've Got to Create for her Spring Fling as well.
