I am soooo late with this post. I guess I should have probably checked that I actually hit the publish button! Oh well it's up now.
Well this post is a half Friday find and a half DIY project. It's a very easy peasy mac n cheesy kind of project. The best thing about this project is how simple and practically free it was.
|Don't they look lovely, all neat and in order?|
Ok, now for the little DIY project....that was free and easy to make. I used my pinking shears, some cardboard scraps and cut 2" x 3" little rectangles.
Then I made a little snip near the top. Be sure to not cut too close to the top.
Then I took this hot mess and wrapped my little heart out. I started at the center of the cardboard piece, then wrapped and wrapped, when I was close to the end I made my way to the top, near the little snip I made. Then I tucked the tail in. It took just as long as making a yarn wreath, which takes about a billion years to begin with. LOL!
I'm glad that's done!! Look how nice and neat it looks now. I also used a marker to label the top of the cardboard with the # for the embroidery floss. I have like 6 different blues and they all look the same to me. The # will help when I need to buy more.
I know that stores sell the holders for this, but I like it better this way. If you look closely, I cut tall and short cardboard pieces and used some clothes pins.
1. I was able to use cardboard that was destined to fill the garbage can.
2. Free, free, free
3. Hellooooooo it's cute!
Aaaaaaannnnnnd, the little basket was a Goodwill find for
Dunnn, dunnn, dunnnn .67 cents.
Okay, enough of my babbling I hope you have a fabulous day.
Thanks for stopping by.
