Pinterest Tries and Crafty Ideas

Welcome! On this page you can view my attempts to actually try some of the pins I've pinned on Pinterest.:-) As you can see, the results vary, but I'm having fun! You'll also find a few of my own ideas on here.

Glass Christmas tree from our Ladies' Pinterest Night at church. Bring on "Decking the Halls!"

December 2019
Wrap a piece of cardboard with pretty craft paper. Cut out letters. Put a cheerful Christmas sticker in place of the O in Home. Decorate. Enjoy!

October 2019
Boo! I finally finished it. I refuse to reveal how long it took, but even my mother has stopped asking me if it's finished yet. In my defense, it has been a pick up/put down/pick up project.

Summer 2019
Handmade Sea Glass - just white craft glue and a little bit of food coloring. This color is made by combining green and blue.

Spring 2019
My "vase" is a dollar store salt shaker. I just love the whimsy of these button flowers.

Winter 2018
It's my dream to someday own a big, beautiful doll house that I will spend hours (days...weeks) decorating. Until that time, I'll satisfy myself with smaller versions, such as my Christmas Tree House above. Merry Christmas

Fall Decor 2018
Just a few fall embellishments and a wooden picture from a dollar store. I love taking something simple and giving it my own touch. Happy fall, y'all!

Autumn Platter 2018

Summer Platter 2018

Spring Platter  2018

I was pretty happy with how this turned out. I'm already making plans to turn it into a Summer beach in a couple of months!

Halloween Notepad 2017

My notepads aren't as fancy as the inspiration. I simply decorated the strip at the top. I can still tear off the pages and keep the decorated top.

Ponytail Holders 2017


These little ponytail holders are exactly what needed to give polish to my ponytail.

Recently I helped host an Adoption Shower at church. I wanted to do something special for the families, so I created shadow boxes into which well wishers could put their congratulations, encouragements, etc.... I covered the back panel with the words, "Together We Make a Family." The puzzle pieces represent the pieces of their families coming together. 

You can see the inspiration HERE.

Button Card

I made this to demonstrate at a Pinterest Party. I thought it turned out pretty well.:-) It's quite a bit different from the original inspiration which you can fine HERE. I absolutely loved the inspiration, but, since I can barely sew a button, decided to go the decorated paper route instead. I used real buttons, and made my mason jar out of paper, then decorated with stickers.

Peppermint Patties and Snowman Cookies
The Peppermint Patties didn't come out as pretty and round as the inspirations, but they tasted great, so I'm refusing to call them a fail. The inspiration for the cookies were actually cupcakes. I wanted cookies.:-)
