Fun Weekend Projects

This weekend was a busy one, but I had time to squeeze in a few fun projects. A relative shared the first idea with me... cutting open glow sticks and splattering them into glass vases to make a fun patio table light.

The kids thought it was super cool. May have overdone the amount of glowstick goo a bit, but oh well!

I wanted to complete a little project for Mason as he seems to frequently get the short end of the stick project-wise. He loves Harry Potter, and I have seen several artists on Etsy and other places making these little wooden peg dolls. Of course, I would never sell mine since I borrowed the idea (that's the reason I like to tell myself, never mind the squiggly lines and such!)

The creepy looking one is Voldemort, if you can't tell. :) They may not be perfect, but Mason loves them!

I finally finished up a project for me that I've been working on for a while. I found this retro Levi's fabric purse/hobo bag at the Goodwill outlet. I thought it would be perfect to do a bit of embroidery on. The book I used for the patterns is "Embroidery for Little Miss Crafty" by Helen Dardik.

Now, its time for my favorite part of completing weekend projects.... deciding which projects to work on next weekend! :)
