French Onion ChickenThis recipe has only 5 actual ingredients (minus the spices), 6 if you like it a bit thicker by adding spuds. It is delish!
Tin Can Craft Supply OrganizerI have been washing and saving veggie and fruit cans for about a week. The time came last night to finally do something with them. This was what came of it.
Making a Custom Bottle WasherI freeze my half and half, plus I make flavored water. When the bottles need washing, it's hard to get them clean.
Clean Inside Spatula HandlesQuite by accident, I realized that spatula handles come off. And when they do, omgosh! Now I am guessing this is not all food that gets trapped, but perhaps soap scum and/or?
Lid Pumpkin Wall HangingI have had this idea in my "to do" file for longer than I care to admit. I have seen these on line. So this week, I decided to just mark it off and share it with all of you. Just 9 components and about an hour of time (not counting paint drying) and it's done. Hope you like it.
Yarn Wrapped Coffee Can Mummy Candy DishThis was so much fun, and I was able to do it while watching TV! It was made with a lot of white yarn, a little gray, and some black for the eyes. I loved the way it turned out!
Crochet Yarn PumpkinsToday I did two pumpkin crafts from yarn that were fun and are very easy. For one, you don't even need to know how to crochet.
New Life for Old CabinetI had this little cabinet next to my living room chair for a while. Then I went to a friend's house and saw that she had a similar little one in her bathroom. I was inspired! And then I went to work.
Corralling Twine and Strapping Tape in One SpotI was tired of the roll of strapping tape and the twine falling out of the pantry every time I needed something next to them. So today, I saw and empty jar and went "Hey!".
Repurposing a Dishwasher Baby Bottle Rack to Store ThreadI am always looking for something to make my craft supplies easier to store, find, and use. I spotted this at a local thrift store and scarfed it up.
New Baby FrameI made this for a friend's new grandnephew, Luciano. It's time intensive, but I love how it turned out.
Sorting Buttons or BeadsI often work with buttons and beads. Pouring them out into a bowl or cup just takes up more room on the small work table. So yesterday, I decided to make a sorting space where I can see and sort tiny things without having them roll off onto the floor. My feet and vacuum are happier for it.
Pizza Wall Hanging Using a Bike Spoke Wire FormThis was a labor of love. I joined a wreath addicts group and when these spoke forms became the new "it" craft, I casually mentions they looked like a pizza! Someone casually mentions I should make one. Challenge Accepted!
Scrubbers Using "Scrubby" YarnThere are so many cool crafts supplies out there anymore. I recently wanted to make my cousin a "scrubby" and found the perfect yarn.
Mini Baking Tin PumpkinsI saw the cutest mini pumpkins made from tins and did my own spin on them. Theirs was somehow glued together, but mine failed, so I improvised. I hope you like them.
Reusing an Upright Tissue HolderI know I have submitted a tip before about using a flat holder and a plastic canvas holder for other things, but this one is cool, too.
Our Nest is Best Pizza Pan CraftI just love these pizza pan crafts. This will be my second one. Everything is from the dollar tree except for my yard twigs. Hope you like it!
Non-Traditional Foam Pumpkin HalvesI have done some non-traditional colors this year. I was inspired by those on Pinterest and here, so I gave it a shot. Hope you like them!
