My new obsession confession….
Maybe because I loved the fairy garden I sent Angel Boy, or maybe it was the smokey skies that made being outside harmful to my asthma, but I had to find an indoor project or it was going to affect my mental health, too.
I thought to myself, what could I craft without having to buy any new supplies?
Pinterest and the internet offers a plethora of ideas by amazing people.
There are step-by-step videos for nearly EVERYTHING DIY.
My first attempt was a craft stick (popsicle stick) door. I have a package of 200 sticks that I was saving for projects with AB and I always have glue and paint. PERFECT.
The door was so aDORable with addition of the button for a doorknob that I painted gold, so I felt confident building the bench. Also easy and also way cool. I painted it white and added a touch of my own…miniature pillows, each stuffed with 1/2 a cotton ball.
The little tables were made out of pieces of broken costume jewelry glued to a wine cork. (Yes, I do save everything.)
Check out the little broom I made with a toothpick.
I’m also obsessed with windchimes and mobiles (another post) and came up with the brilliant idea of a mini-mobile made out of an old costume jewelry ring. I have no idea where the ring came from, but it was there in the box of broken things.
I attached tiny seashells and gems using silver jewelry wire and fishing line.
Not perfect, but not bad for a first attempt, right? Next, I’m going to try to build the picnic table.
I didn’t really want to do a step-by-step DIY tutorial because mine wouldn’t be nearly as detailed and precise as the ones that are already out there, but here’s a few photos of the process:
I think I might attempt to pierce the veil between worlds and open that door. It was especially magical last night when the solar lights came on and sparkled the glass rock pathway.
