I am not fond of detailed crafts that take lots of time and patience. But give me a quick, cute, inexpensive craft/décor project and I’m all over it. Here are three that I have done this season. All three cost under $10, (all three together!), and all three, (together!) took under an hour to make!
For this craft project I bought three glass cylinder candles at the Dollar Tree and then printed some free Christmas sheet music off the internet.
Next I painted some thinned down Elmer’s glue onto the glass, wrapped the sheet music around it, and coated it with another layer of glue. If you have Modge Podge use that instead of the glue. I used the foam brush to try to smooth all bubbles out of the sheet music. As it dries the bubbles and wrinkles get better. After it was dry I added another coat of the glue. Let it dry and that is all there is to it!
This next quick and easy project is my favorite. It hangs on the mirror over our bed to add a little Christmas cheer to our bedroom.
First I took a piece of 1/4 inch jute cord from the fabric store and hot glued on three starfish that I already had.
Next I hand lettered on cardstock N.O.E.L. I used a hole punch on the top and used twine to hang them with. I put a dab of hot glue where the twine hangs on the jute cord, so they don’t slide out of place.
After Christmas I can simply make the letter V, rearrange the L.O.E. and I will have the word LOVE as we head towards Valentine’s Day!
I don’t know if you can technically call this last one a craft project, as it is more a way to display these store bought little birds from Target. (They are only $1 each!) Read more about this project here.
Inexpensive, easy crafts that anyone can do…gotta love it!
