I'm crafty

This summer I had lots of free time - I mean lots. So I channeled my inner Martha Stewart and made a couple things, which was perfect since we just moved into a new house and have tons of wall space - so much in fact that our living room (still) echoes.  So I started by making this beauty

It is simple; however, power tools are involved so if you don't have them handy, it may be a bit trickier.  Basically, you get a piece of wood (Hob Lob has them for cheap), get a vase or mason jar, some wire and a drill.  You center the vase on the wood.  Draw two holes on the sides of the vase where you want the wire to go and two holes at the top equally spaced for a hanger.  Then just drill the holes.

Run the wire through the middle holes snugly around the vase and tie off tight in the back.

Then make a hanging mechanism by running the wire through the top holes and voila! You're done.  Pick some pretty flowers and you're done!

I would tell you that it only takes an hour but I kept forgetting to get Mike to help me drill the holes and it actually took me about 2-3 months to finish this.  Hopefully, you will be more on top of things!


  1. I love your creativity and craftiness!

  2. Thank you Selena! I'm sad I didn't get to say goodbye to you guys today! We'll miss you al!

  3. This is super cute!! Most of my crafts take an extra month or more just because I'll get side tracked and forget to finish. I guess that's just the Aries in me ;)

    Also, I left you something on my blog in case you're interested.

    Have a great day!

  4. Why should I make them, when you could just make them for me? It looks great!
