Watch Bands

Last Year when we first started crafting together, we made a few of the cute beaded watch bands. We haven't posted the pictures yet, so here they are. (Only a year later!!!)

Flowers for Headbands

I had so much fun making the rings, that I made a bunch of flower clips for my daughter's headbands! I think they turned out really cute! I've made even more clips after I took this picture!

Flower Rings

I have seen these rings on several different blogs. I wanted to try them out because they are so cute and they looked fairly simple to make! We went to Hobby Lobby and picked up some satin fabric in a few different colors. These were so fun to make! Shanna, Kimberly, and I made them together. I bought an 1/8 of a yard of each color and it goes a LONG way! It was on 37 cents a yard, so that was even better!!!

Mr. Potato Head

This is a project that we made quite a while ago. I realized we had never posted pictures, so I thought I would. We found the tutorial from Make it and Love it. I took a picture of my Mrs. Potato Head. We made other parts, so I am hoping the other crafters on this blog will add their pics, too!

Quiet Book

Last year I decided I wanted to make a Quiet Book. I had seen a few in the stores, and thought that I could make a book that was much cuter and much cheaper. Kimberly, Shanna, and my mother-in-law decided they wanted to make one as well. We made a list of our different ideas (which is over 30!!!), and got to work. There are 7 kids in the Foust family, and for Christmas I wanted to make a book for the Trent and Tiona family (since that is who we had for Christmas). We figured we were already making 4 books, so we might as well make 3 more! 7 books, what were we thinking?!?! We spent many hours working on this project. We got together almost every Tuesday from August to December. We haven't even made half of the pages that are on our list, but we got a pretty good start! We all worked together and I think the books turned out FANTASTIC! The true test is if the kids like it, and they LOVE it!!!

Jewlery Holder

I found this idea HERE at the Crafty Clique Blog. I thought it was a great idea and wanted to do something similar. I forgot to take a picture of the original shelf. But I found it at the DI and spray painted it black. It also had a weird heart thing on it that I ripped off.

The shelf I bought didn't have a back on it, so I went to Home Depot to the clearance wood section (best section in the entire world!) and found a thin wood backing for $0.51. My dad cut the back to fit the shelf.

I covered each little shelf with a different scrapbook paper and mod podged the whole thing.

Then I bought small wooden knobs and circular wooden things (I know, my mind is drawing tons of blanks) and spray painted them black. Then I figured out where would work best to put the knobs on the back board.I used for of the circular wooden things and one knob and rummaged through my dad's screws and found 4 that would be a good fit for the knob and then I screwed it all in.

This is what the back looked like after screwing in the knobs. Then I nailed the back onto the shelf and respray painted the sides, so the back sides would be black as well. I took some of these teeth wall hangers and hammered them in, one on each side.
This is what the knobs looked like on the inside. The sides are really deep, and I wanted to be able to add more jewelry. That's why I added the circular wooden things. I think it turned out alright.
And this is the final product!! Once we move to Arizona this will have a much better place on my wall!!
