Yesterday when I went to enroll my son for his classes I stopped by the thrift store to see if I could find anything to craft with/on. I found several things to work with, now I just need to find the time to do the ideas I came up with…lol
The first thing I found was these tins:
I also found these:
RIght this moment I’m not sure what to do with these. They are 4 mirrors with wooden frames that pretty well match each other. On these I haven’t made up my mind on what I will do. I could paint them, etch them, or a number of other things.
These was found also:
The picture isn’t that great on these but it is a set of 4 wine glasses & dessert plates that are glass. On these I’ve had a couple of ideas. The basic ideas were to just paint or decorate them somehow to stay a matching set. Other ideas I had was to combine a glass and plate together & turn them into something. The things that I thought of turning them into are: a decorative light with a candy tray attached or a snow globe with a candy tray attached & being able to set a candle on top.
The last thing I found is:
This wooden tray I found very cheap & figured I could do several things with it. This I plan to paint with black chalkboard paint and make a Halloween scene inside it. This I think could be changed seasonally because of the paint.
For Halloween I was thinking about making a 3 deminsional tree with a broom leaning against it. Maybe put a witch and a cauldron in it. All of this would be set on top of a piece of stryofoam painted black & made to look like dirt. On the side maybe write ‘Witch’s Hallow’.
For Christmas change the inside to a Christmas scene and change the words on the outside.
Next………………….Card ideas that I have yet to do 🙂
