Mother's Day is just around the corner, why not make something instead of buying a gift? The amazing people at Spotlight sent myself and other creative people some products to create with. I wanted to see just how many different projects I could make . I had tried for a few more, but not all projects work out and go to plan, but that's ok. There is always a lesson in there to be learnt. I'm still working on another one.
I was given some wool, cardstock, twine and glitter. The glitter threw me a little. If you don't know this, I'm not a glitter girl.
CROCHET BASKET with the wool.
HEART BANNER with the twine.
PINWHEEL WALL DECOR with the paper and glitter.
The pinwheels are for my wall in my craft area. I've wanted another little something to go on my wall for a while. I've actually still have a pinwheel I made almost 5 years ago, something crazy like that hanging in my craft/office. You know what? I don't even mind the glitter I added? WHO knew!
The crochet basket was so much fun to make and then put together. I already want to make more. The only thing, I tried at least 15 times to make handles and I just couldn't get it to work! Any tutorials you know? Send them my way please. In the end I figured it was ok without any handles.
Last of all the crochet heart banner. Thing is already hanging in my craft/office under my book shelf and I LOVE it! Honestly pink and purple are not colours I'd usually go for, but I actually really like them together for these projects.
CHECK OUT your local Spotlight store for supplies. Often Spotlight have ideas on leaflets throughout the store. Why not treat yourself and buy yourself something to make just for you! Because YOU deserve it this Sunday.
