December 6 – Make. What was the last thing you made? What materials did you use? Is there something you want to make, but you need to clear some time for it?
The last thing I made was a homemade earring holder. I have a LOT of earrings and needed something to view them on other than them being cluttered in a drawer.
I used a picture frame [take out the glass and such] for the outline and stapled wire mesh [that I got from Lowes] to the picture frame. I then spray painted the whole thing black and used pink and white puff paint to write two of my favourite quotes around the edges of the frame.
I would like to do some more do-it-yourself projects, I just need to find the time to do it! There are plenty of things we can make for ourselves and it’s fun to have a little weekend project! I really want to build a shelf or something, but need to learn how to do that. I’m also thinking of possibly making some of my own jewelry. We will see!
