Picture Frame Clock

I got this great idea for a clock from my friend Kelsie{She's super crafty and even has two etsy shops. Here and hereAll you do is find picture frames--I got mine from Goodwill for about a dollar each--and then paint them black.  I added scrapbook paper and little embellishments that I had lying around the house in 8 of them, and then in 12, 3, 6 and 9, I put wedding pictures of my husband and me.  {It is, after all, for our master bedroom}   I found the clock hands online for about 15 dollars.  There are several places that sell them.  All you do is assemble everything, mount it on the wall, add a battery and voila!  Your very own personalized clock for less than $30.  This project was so much fun to make!  Definitely one of my favorites so far! 

P.S. Sorry about the crappy lighting. :)

Have you ever tried to put a flower arrangement in a skinny vase, and THEY WOULDN'T FIT! It is really annoying. This was the problem facing me tonight. So, I was looking through my cupboards, deciding what I could use instead. I saw an empty glass jar, and thought, that might work. (If I make it pretty first:) So I got out my faithful jar of modge podge and found some cute scrapbook paper. Then I measured the paper and modge podged the paper to the jar. I added a second layer of paper with "Happy Birthday" on it. (Any saying would work.) Then I tied some ribbon around the top and I had a flower vase. (Now I don't have to buy one!!)

Miniature Shelf

This shelf was made for less than $5.00.
I just bought a plain shelf and painted it.
Then I modge-podged the paper to the shelf.
Voila, it is ready to hang up in our kitchen and hold our cute aprons we got at Disneyland!
