***wah wah waaahhhh - I was too late to donate. Boo! :(
So these will go into the Craft Closet waiting to be gifted.***
Our church is hosting a "Beast Feast" today that will include a dinner of wild game, silent auction and live auction all in efforts to raise money for the church. I missed last year's event, but am very excited to attend this year. I am donating a couple crafty things to the auctions and hope they raise a few dollars for the cause!
The first is this book page wreath. I'm mildly addicting to making these in all forms. This version uses slices of pages from a French / English dictionary made into loops and glued all over the wreath form. There are a million ideas for book page wreaths out in craft blog land and I've been inspired by them all!
I also whipped up a tutu for the children's auction. I love making these. They take NO time and the materials are very affordable. I like to make matching shirts or onesies with these, but I didn't have anything on hand. Instead, I created a matching magic wand to create an adorable dress up set, perfect for a little girl with a big imagination. Can you guess what I made it from?
Hot glue, ribbons, a matching pom pom and a HANGER!
Easy and affordable and (I think) pretty darn cute!
Hope someone else thinks so to and bids big on these items! It feels great to get to create for a good cause! Check out this other great idea to create for a cause over at MADE!
