{crafting: simpledaisy style}

Good Morning!
Do you love to make things?!?!?
I know I do and most days my mind never stops spinning with ideas!
Now here are a couple super easy and slightly beachy crafts to do!

All you need to do both crafts are....
cream/tan colored paint
hot glue gun
terra cotta pot
paper mache letter of your choice
jute rope

First the letter....All you do...is wrap and glue....wrap and glue the jute rope around the letter.
Here's the finished product!simple and cute:)I just love jute! I think it's natural and a little beachy:)Next.... a cute little terra cotta pot.
First paint the outside...Just put a couple coats on. It doesn't have to be perfect!
Then wrap and glue and wrap and glue the jute on.
So cute! I filled the pot with some miniature daffodil bulbs:)Oh and Ruby helping me take my photographs:)Now here is the pot in our home....So happy and cute:)
Oh and did you notice the blue "thing" on the couch???
That would be my husband sitting on the couch in his SNUGGIE:)
He is pretending to be sleeping so that he doesn't have to get involved in my crafting:)
Nice, huh?? :)

The possibilities are endless with the jute rope! You could also make a simple little wreath or wrap frames with it! What are your ideas?!?!?

Hope you enjoyed this simple little craft! and if you happen to do either one....let me know!! I'd love to see how it turned out:)

  3. I sometimes think about doing a craft, but I lose the motivation to follow through. Your crafts are starting to tempt me to follow through and try one! :-) Just gotta add...I'm sitting here in a blue snuggie!

  8. Thanks for your comment on my Amy Butler Bags. I couldn't believe it when I saw the pillow on your couch with the Big Peony pattern. I have one almost exactly like it on my couch (I have a post on it somewhere in my blog)! Great minds!
