Welcome to craft time,
I have had two ideas bubbling around in my
lil ol' noggin for a while....
.....one was house numbers for the gate where
FedEx, and other delivery people come
up to the house...
.....two was a photo display made from
an old bike wheel.
I had bought some large, black
numbers a while back in
hopes a good idea would pop
into my head....
....while I was showering,
you know, my thinking time!
Inspiration struck when daughter
brought me an old,
rusty, crusty multi-loaf pan.
She found it in one of Papaw's barns
and thought it looked like something
I would like.
She was so very correct!
Here it is....
....after a scrubby bath and a sun bath
to dry it!
Our address has four numbers and there are
five loaf pans here, so I would have to add
our name, maybe,
a piece of interesting
old rusty, crusty, maybe not,
an initial, maybe,
what, what, what??
I had a corrugated tin heart that might work.
Here's a pic of how the numbers fit on the loaf pans.
I used E6000 adhesive for this project.
That stuff is great, but do not get it on you....
taking it off also removes skin....ouch!
If you re messy, like me, wear
Here's the heart.....the size is perfect!
Don't you agree, Glitterinas?
All the numbers and the heart were glued in place
and here's my finished
house number sign.
Here's a creative, art-y shot....
I really like the way it turned out.
What do you think, Glitterinas?
Project two was a photo display.
I had been on the lookout for
an old bike wheel, but I just couldn't
Well, one day, boom,
I found an old wheel.
It was just
waiting to go to my craft room!
I thought about painting it but decided
I can always paint it in the future if
the mood strikes!
I added an old glass door knob
to the middle of the wheel.
(Thanks for the idea, Holly!)
I covered some small clothespins
with sparkly washi tape....
....and gathered up some old photos of people
I love very much!
Using my sparkly clothespins, I attached
the photos to the
spokes of the wheel.
This is my sweet Sissy......what a cutie pie!
Here's my Mom being shy, along with her Mom
and her brother, Leo.
Love those boots, Mom!
This photo display is going to live
on the mantle for now.
I love seeing it every day.
I added some more pictures to fill out
the wheel space...... I did have more clips!
Do you like my two projects?
Leave me a note and let me know what you
think about them.
Thank you so much for stopping by the
craft room here at
I hope to spend some more time
with you soon, Glitterinas.
Until next time,
