Bacon and Eggs?!

Standard


This is a fun project to do with grandkids — just three ingredients to buy, and it’s a sweet and salty treat. It’s so easy you probably don’t even need directions, but I’ll walk you through it just in case. Read the rest of this entry

Yarn Tree

Standard

I had this fun red yarn, but not enough to knit anything with, so I decided to experiment with it for a Christmas tree decoration.  I got a papier-mâché tree form from Hobby Lobby.  (I first picked up a styrofoam form, which would work, but I find it’s harder to glue.).

Using some strong craft glue in a long row down one side of the tree form, I simply wrapped and wrapped and wrapped the yarn, starting at the top.

At the bottom, I wrapped the yarn around the stem and then secured the tail with glue.

Because I hadn’t glued the whole piece, I had some wiggle room with the yarn to adjust it to cover any spots I’d missed.  This was an easy and inexpensive project, and I think I’ll do two more trees with different yarn. Now onward to Hobby Lobby!
 P.S. — I’ll post a beautiful picture of my trees in place once I lug my Christmas decorations down from the attic!
