sometimes we make crafts...

A few weekends ago we decided to stay in and make some crafts. We NEVER do this. It was pretty fantastic actually. David and I walked to the craft store and had no idea what we were doing there. Seriously, we were so lost and amazed all at the same time. We spent a good hour in the store while we were trying to figure out what to make. We saw that there was a sale on giant letters, so we got some of those... We, and by we I mean I, decided it would be cute to wrap them in yarn. {but I did let David pick out the colors.} It was so easy! All you need is a hot glue gun and you're golden.
Then I got this fancy idea to make a sunburst mirror. All we had to do for that was buy a little round mirror and go out in nature to find some sticks. SUPER EASY.
We hot glued the sticks to a small piece of plywood and put another piece of wood in the middle to hold the mirror on. Then just start gluing all of the sticks around to cover the plywood back. Be careful not to burn your sweet husband's fingers while he holds your sticks for you...
{We ended up having a lot of extra sticks, so I decided to stash them in mason jars. why not?}


  1. Hi Amanda, I am desparately trying to figure out how you did the enlargements on the wall at your wedding reception. If you can give me any clues as to how to go about doing that, I would be forever grateful. How ahd where did you get such big enlargements done? And how are they hung on those sound boards? Your quick response would be soooo appreciated. Please e-mail me at Thank you
