Pinterest Inspired Projects

Yep, Mo'Betta's been craftin'.  Pinterest not only inspires me to cook (and eat!), but to also get my craft on.  With a new Hobby Lobby in town...well, it's a pinner's paradise.  And if you are wondering what the fudge is Hobby's like Michaels, a large craft store.  {That sells Christmas ornaments year round!!!  I looove Christmas ornaments.}

I have seen several "rope" projects, like this one, and decided to make one for my sister for her b-day....
I decided my 1st project should be something small, so I did a single glass vase.  It is so simple! Just take rope, (I started at the bottom - don't know if it matters) and wrap it around whatever you are covering, in this case, a vase.  Use hot glue to hold your rope to the vase.  I glued it where I started and then every couple wraps I would add some glue.  Then glue at the top where your rope ends.  Hopefully keeping it nice and secure.  My sister hasn't mentioned that it has fallen apart yet, so maybe all is well ;)

My next project was inspired by the many wreaths I've seen on Pinterest, like this one.   This is a work in progress.  I have also discovered Mod Podge.  Watch out people!  
I bought a large pre-cut letter from Hobby Lobby, scrapbook paper, & Mod Podge (which I will be checking out making my own after I use the bottle I have now!)
I covered my letter with the scrapbook paper (adhering and sealing with the Mod Podge).

I plan on attaching it to a rope wreath something like this one...

So what has Pinterest inspired y'all to do?  

I wish I could get inspired to do all these exercises I keep pinning!


  1. Great projects! I saw a letter covered in a state map with I though was really cool.
