While scouring sites for fun new projects I cam across this website called Home Decorating. These ideas are great! I will never make anything like this but I’m sure my crafty followers would be quite interested in taking a look at it so, here it is! There are some great ideas for crafting with corks on here

There are a ton more on the site too! So check it out and let me know what you think! I was pretty intrigued by the bath mat a cork candles…
Look Mom, I’m being festive 🙂
This is a quick and easy dollar store craft. I bought two small boxes of candy canes (only because they didn’t carry full boxes) at the dollar store for $2.
I think this craft would also look nice with colored candy canes. Possibly the red and green or the blue and purple ones that come out around the holidays.
Things You Will Need:
About 20-25 candy canes
Place two candy canes side by side facing in the same direction. Apply hot-melt glue wherever they touch. Ideally you would be gluing at the top and the bottom.
After repeating step 1 a few times you should have something like this.
Make a ring of glue (a lot of glue) around the bottom of the candy canes, like so. The wreath is pretty fragile so the glue helps to hold it together. If you want, you can add a circle of cardboard to the back to help with that.
I’ve got a quick and easy DIY for you this week. These are pretty darn cute and take about 5 mins to put together, literally.
You can find trinkets at any craft store. I’m sure Walmart has something your could work with as well. These could make a fun gift too!
Things You Will Need:
2 Earring hooks
I am sure there is a correct name for all of these things but I have no idea what they are so, we are just going to go with the above.
Attach a clasp to your trinket.
Attach the earring hook to your clasp. Repeat for the second earring.
Easy enough right? I like them and probably would’ve bought them if I saw them in a store.:-)
Ed Chew is quite inventive. Ed created the TetraBox lamp. The lamp is made of discarded drink packets. The design is achieved by unfolding the packets and refolding them into shapes and sectioning them off to form the desired shape. Wow… :-O
A friend, and coworker, went to Michael’s and bought a Blank and made it look like another one of our coworkers. I wanted to share it. He said he was inspired by my blog to do something creative! Thanks for showing me this, Casey!
Hello all! I found this post on Heather’s/Wipper Berry’s website and loved it. Unfortunately, I do not think I have room in my apartment to attempt this. So, I thought I would share it with everyone and give you the chance to try it if you would like. Please check out Heather’s Blog for more fun ideas.
