plate pedestal

Search & rescue forlorn small plates & candle holders at your favorite thrift store or home.  The following eight items cost $4.50.

To make a couple specimens dark & creepy, paint the candle holder (these were not glass or ceramic) a metallic gray.   Then, with an adhesive product, (make sure it works with the materials!) secure plate to pedestal.

Be patient during drying & curing!  Trust me.

The next two are anytime of the year cuties.  Use them to hold small items – keys, paper clips –  or display seasonal goodies.  Raised objects save linear space & lend visual interest.

Fun is… fake rodents & spiders on Halloween….one never knows where they may lurk around here…

farm hugger

An addition to the coffee cozy repertoire…(search “coffee hugger” or click on similar tag below to see history..)

A mini replica of a friend’s farm to enhance hot beverage enjoyment!  First step:  make a crafty plan

Initial materials:  felt, embroidery thread, linen, 1/8″ black grosgrain ribbon, sparkly corduroy, buttons, black & off white vinyl, ultra suede, bead

The cute cow ended up being too tiny to make….but the poppies are perfect.
