I needed some curtains but as always I couldn't spend a fortune, so I got crafty ! I bought two black twin sized flat sheets. I cut a slit in each end of the sheet that has the wide fold ... ( I don't know if that made sense lol ) but I did take a picture so you could see ! I cut a slit just big enough to put the rod through. After cutting the slit just slide in the curtain rod , hang and you're done ! These are great if you need curtains for a wide window , it's way cheaper then buying curtains. Two twin size sheets cover a window up to 132 inches wide , they are 96 inches long. If they are a little long just hang them higher, it will make the room look bigger or just let them pool up on the floor ! In total this DIY project cost me $12 ( 5 for the two sheets and 2 for the rods ) Good luck :)
Well recently my teenage son (who does blacksmithing ) made some hand forged hooks . I went to my scrap lumber pile and found a old board & cut it to the size I wanted. I screwed on the hooks and made a beautiful rustic looking coat rack. I will be posting some of the coat racks on etsy ( 2Kraftychics is the shop ) I also found some scrap lumber and made some other coat racks. I painted them with some paint I had on hand. You could easily make these with old knobs or hooks.They are a easy DIY project that is also budget friendly !

Well, I bought myself a sewing machine. That being said , that thing is intimidating! It sat in box on the floor for two weeks before I worked up enough courage to get it out. One Sunday I bravely decided to get it out and attempt to make it operational. ..after two hours I finally figured out how to thread the bobbin ( yes it had a instruction manual as well as a instructional DVD but they were confusing ) Let's fast forward two weeks ....... I love owls so I decided to make a owl pillow ,of course I had no pattern (that would make to much sense) but I did have a $5 bag of fabric I picked up at a thrift store so I started cutting. Well it turned out cute.....my son seen it & said he liked my "horned" owl pillow, after I laughed and laughed I informed him those were ears. He said "oh,there are horned owls you know " I then informed him this was CLEARLY a intentional horned owl pillow . I have to say it was pretty easy to assemble after I figured out how to manipulate and move the fabric workout sewing my fingers. One day I will get a pattern but until then I will continue to sew beautiful "horned" owls :)

Everyone knows I love to re-purpose just about everything so when my husband was making stew I quickly grabbed these huge tin cans bc I wanted to make something out of them . So I cleaned,painted & decorated them & turned them into candles ! I sold them at a local craft fair . Check out my Etsy shop :2Kraftychics where I will be selling some of my crafts.
Here was our corner display table, we weren't finished setting it up yet but it was a hit. Yes...it's a masher earring holder on the table....hey I like to have displays to grab attention :) please note the old school cd holder that I turned into a turning earring display....Visit us at our Etsy shop : 2Kraftychics
