This time of the year every aspect of my life seems to kick into overdrive. I volunteer to help out at ever event I can, I take on extra work for the blog, and my social calendar fills up (sometimes with double bookings!) As you know, I like to have several things in the air at once so, I'm always challenging myself with multiple types of tasks simultaneously. In one day I'll be dabbling with a recipe while tweaking a craft and composing a lifestyle blog post. I get bored easily, so I even fill my spare time with D.I.Y. projects and crafts. Some might think it crazy to want to take a time out doing more of the same thing I've been grinding away on all day- but the beauty of crafting is that it truly can be whatever you want it to be!
As in love as I was with the advent countdown, the Scotch® Metallic Washi Tapes I'd picked up hadn't quite made their way into the project, and that made me sad. But the Red and Silver sparkles quickly spoke to me and inspired another project, this time, seasonal.
Cut a strip of crafting/floral wire approximately 7 times the length of your container- For example, if your container is 10" long cut a 70" strand. Gently double it over, folding it in half evenly with a loose bend in the middle. The bend should create a 'U' shape about the width of your thumb. Place the container atop the folded wire so that the thumb sized 'U' protrudes from the bottom of the container about twice the depth of the container. Gently fold this portion up to create a bottom holder for your container.
What Daughter Says: My life may be one big creative outlet, but I still find joy in 'me time' that lets me create without guidelines or boundaries.
