Christmas Craft Project

My friend, Hilda Collins, lead our Farm Girls and Feed Sacks group in creating a Christmas craft project in November. I put mine on the tree and think it is really cute! It was simple and kids could make it for teachers or grandparents.

Supplies needed: small jar, glue, decoration with adhesive backing (optional), sponge paint brush, ribbon, salt, disposable bowl and tealight candle.

Directions: Put decoration with adhesive backing on jar (optional), use sponge brush to add glue, put salt in disposable bowl and roll jar in salt. Set aside to dry. Add ribbon on outside and tealight candle inside.


Latest Basket

This little basket was fun to weave. I am a blue person so this one makes me smile. I love covered bridges and purchased this painted base and blue leather handles at the Texas Basket Weaver’s Convention in Austin, Texas. Special thanks to friends in my basket weaving guild (Tightly Woven Basketry Guild of the NRV) for sharing smoked colored reed 🙂 This is my first basket to use this color and I love it!
