After many requests, I am going to start a craft club! Each month I will teach a new crafting technique. The prices will vary, usually $10-$20. The cost will cover all your supplies to make the project. The first class will be teaching how to etch on glass. For $10 you will get to make one of these candle holders!
The cost for this project will only be $10! I will have sand and a candle to put in them. This first one will be at Trish Naylor’s house on Sunday, February 27th, from 4-5pm. Her address is 6319-B Highway 158 Summerfield, NC 27358. If you cannot make this event, you are welcome to host your own. Just pick a date and time and invite some friends over to your house. I will come to you with all the supplies and teach it in your house. If you have at least 5 friends then you get to make her project for free! Each month I will have a new project, teaching a new technique. At the February class I will bring the March project with me so you can see a sample. Let me know if you are going to attend the party on the 27th or if you want to host your own party!

In the spirit of Valentine’s Day today’s project is a super cheap, fast, simple, and cute wreath!
1. I bought burlap at Hobby Lobby. One yard is plenty and it is $2.99/yard. Use the 40% coupon from Sunday’s paper or print it off online and you have your burlap for $1.79!! Originally I cut it into 4 inch strips. I ended up cutting those in half. So go with 2 inch wide strips.
2. Unravel a little of each side of the strips.
3. Shape your coat hanger into a heart.
4. Put the burlap strips on the wire, accordion style. The coat hanger pokes right through it!
5. Keep putting on strips until it is thick enough that the coat hanger doesn’t show through.
6. Then fold over the pieces of hanger at the top so they are hooked together.
You are done! That easy! Total project cost, $1.79! Can’t beat that! It took me about 30 minutes, most of which was cutting out the strips. The hardest part is figuring out where you want to put this beautiful wreath!!
