Using what you have...

Sorry for the delay in showing my latest craft.  I have been feeling better and better each day.  I have even gotten out and driven to the store today!  It felt great for about the first 20 minutes of being into the store.  Then, I decided it was time to head home for the couch.

The craft I'm sharing today is made from materials I found in my closet.  Because I've been stuck at home recovering, I didn't have a way to make any purchases.  (I know my husband has been grateful for that.)  Anyways, this is the first time I actually dug around to use what I already had on hand and come up with something.  Let me go ahead and warn you that this is by no means an original idea.  In fact, this has been done by many in various ways.

I used a piece of 25 cent gray felt sheet, thread, needle, scissors, beads, and tulle.  The end product is these two broaches.   

Obviously, the second one is in need of some sort of bling for the center.  I think I will dig around for some pearl beads.  I've put an alligator clip as wells as a broach clip on the back to make it more versatile.  I can't wait to wear it in my hair on a head band or perhaps use it as an embellishment on a cardigan or maybe even a black tote.  The possibilities are endless!!!

Get Your Craft On Tuesday


  1. You should shop at home more often! Those are beautiful creations.

  2. I am glad you shopped at home. If not then you would have not created these. Glad you are feeling better. I understand the cabin fever. After my hysterectomy surgery- I was wanting out so bad..take it easy and go slowly.


I would really enjoy knowing what you think. I love getting your comments!
