Welcome to Craft Schooling Sunday! One of the things that I just love about this party is the sheer difference in the crafts from week to week. I recently looked back at the features from a few past parties, and I was so amazed at how many great ideas there are. So if you're looking for some inspiration, you really needn't surf too much, just go to the Blog Party category in the right hand column and you'll have more than you could wish for! Thanks so much for coming, and now for the features from last week:
Isn't this wardrobe gorgeous? I'm just loving gray lately and the painted beehive did such an amazing job finishing a small unfinished wardrobe. And this sweet vignette by less than perfect life of bliss, a great example of how something as simple as some paper butterflies and sticks can make a huge decorating statement— you're right the sweet red painted bookcase sure helps, but you get the picture!
This week we've got some great recycled/upcycled projects! I just love Malia of yesterday on tuesday's idea of making a bunting banner from jean pockets-and she plans to stick little notes in each one too! And Michele of michele made me has been keeping busy transforming plastic bottles into flowers (among other amazing things, of course...
It's very rare to have any male presence on this blog, so do welcome whatimade.com with his recycled can tea-light holder, for those of you who are just a bit handy! And Cindy, the queen of crocheting with plastic bags over at myrecycledbags.com has this simple project for a plarn water bottle holder, give it a try!
I just love this roller skate cake made from sister acts, with the royal icing roller skate made a few days ahead of time, and check out the Wilton link from her blog, including the notes at the end about how to do the same thing without using their specific products! Rosi Jo, there you are! Isn't she just brilliant, rescuing an old sweater by appliqueing some granny squares to the slightly worn front and elbows. And her daughter's pose seemed so reminiscent of the 50's,a perfect match for the roller skate, don't you think?
Ahh, don't these sachet's from sew4home look gorgeous? Presentation is everything, and if you decided to make some as a gift you too could give them together with a lovely cake stand! I've been wanting to make string globes for a while now, and this is my final push, I just love how wednesdays custom design combined the different sizes to make a truly unique wedding decoration.
I hope you enjoyed this week's features, and now it's time once again to see what you've been up to!
