Getting Crafty

Here are a few things I have been working on lately :)

The Globe Bowl

I saw this in a picture awhile back and always wanted to try it. I was at Ross and saw they had a broken globe, and I knew it would be perfect for this project! They even gave me a discount because it was broken :)

So here is my globe half....

And the inside of it....

I painted the inside with what is called "crackle" gives it an old wood finish.

I ended up hot gluing burlap around the top, and then gluing jute around that...

I am pretty excited about how it turned out!

The Empty Frame Collage.....

I saw this idea in pictures, as well. I wanted something for my hallway wall but didn't want to spend a lot of money. This was perfect and I LOVE how it turned out!!

I found some frames...all different sizes and a thrift store for $.25. I set them all out on my floor in a way that I thought would look good on the wall.

Then I painted them with some acrylic paint I had picked up at Hobby Lobby.

Ta Da!! The empty frame collage!!!

I love how it looks going down that hallway!
