DIY Button Art

diy button artHi all, happy summer!! I love doing fun little projects in the summer, which is how this project was born. I was fiddling around in my craft room thinking of something fun to make to waste some time, and I stumbled upon a bag of letter beads and buttons. Oh the possibilities!

For those of you who don’t have random bags of buttons and beads in their drawers (er, most people), then you can easily find these items at Michael’s or any other craft store.

DIY Floating Candle Centerpiece

DIY Floating Candle CenterpieceHi lovely My Craft Spot readers, it’s Cat from The Rustic Willow here again today to bring you an easy and fun centerpiece project!

I can’t take full credit for this project, though. I’ll have to give that handsome boyfriend of mine credit on this one. You see, my stepmother gave me this absolutely gorgeous turquoise bowl that I’m entirely in love with. And my actual mom gave me these gorgeous flower candles.

I, like a fool, had them separated and had the bowl on the shelf just collecting dust while the candles hadn’t found a home yet.

So, Stephen, the smart fellow that he is, decided to take some of our sand and pebbles and fill the bottom of the bowl. He then filled the bowl about a quarter of the way up with water. Then, he floated the candles on top.

Since it’s starting to feel more springy, I feel like everything should be decorated with flowers, including headbands! Aurora (my lovely model pictured above), absolutely loves to wear headbands. So, I decided to make her a cute little flower headband for spring!

DIY Dog Leash Holder

Hi everyone! It’s Cat from The Rustic Willow! I have one of my favorite recent projects to share with you today. I few months ago my sister came to me with a problem she was having: She had nowhere cute to store her dog leashes. I empathized with her because my dog leashes are just thrown in my closet–and everything needs it’s own cute way to be displayed, right?! Right.

DIY Dog Leash HolderI wanted the holder I designed for her to be simple but still adorable. I came up with this holder with the popular saying, “Live, Bark, Love” on it. To add a little more of a doggy touch I traded in the “i” for a dog bone, and the “o” for a dog paw.
