I've caught the bug, the craft bug. Since the New Year began I have been all about little projects and doing fun little crafts and finally catching up on a bit of my scrapbooking from years ago. I'm not one of those people that dreams cool stuff up in my head and I've told many people that I want to like one of my best friends Tricia when I grow up and have her creativity. These two projects I saw at different places. This wreath I've seen all over blogland. It looked easy and cheap and just right for me. I think it turned out great and I think my favorite part is I can spray paint it over and over again to match different holidays.
This second one I saw at a craft fair during November in Farmington, Utah. It's an advent! I love having a Christmas advent and when I was little I would set my alarm 5 minutes early in the morning so I could be the first one up and change the family advents. (That's until we set a rule so other's could have a turn.)
The first picture here is the finished product. It's made from a mini-muffin pan and I measured and cut paper to fit over the openings and then for the numbers I actually cut them out of the paper and put plain green paper behind the original. Once the paper was glued together I laminated everything together to make it stronger and hopefully last a long time.
Here you can see the magnets on the back. I didn't do one on each corner to save magnets but if I need more in the future they are easy to add.It'll be fun to fill with little treats or thoughts and use the end of this year... In our new house!!
