Artsy, Fartsy

I am not an Artsy type person. Fartsy maybe, but not artsy. I like trying to do artsy things they just never turn out the way I want them to. This past weekend I took an hour and a half class for Scouts so that I could get some ideas to take back to my girls.

Above is the result of the class. I have to admit I had fun and I actually impressed myself. I think I impressed myself because I did not set any expectations on myself.

The painted pot is a candle. We took small ceramic flower pots with the drain bottom and made it the lid by attaching a wooden spool to it, painted it and stuck a candle in it. Easy & cute!

The blue and orange thing is a duct tape flower pen. Colored duct tape, wire and a pen. I didn’t care for these too much. Nothing wrong with it, just not my cup of tea.

The zig-zag thing is a Duct Tape Cell Phone Case. It consisted of felt cut to the size of your phone and colored duct tape. Again easy and fun. I am going to use mine as an eye-glass case when I go camping.

I also made a cloth book cover. I don’t have a picture of that because my oldest daughter snagged it from me.

I can’t wait to take these things to my meetings for my girls to do!!
