What can you do with old paper towel rolls, paint, and missing puzzle pieces? Probably more than you think 😉
I started out with a paper towel roll, marked it with a highlighter every once inch and cut with scissors (it probably would have been more precise and neater cuts if I had used an exacto knife – I’ll try that and let you know later if it’s better) then I painted them black, let them dry, bent them a little to make a flower-like shape and glued them together. I have MUCH more to cut out to make it look how I want – but it’s a good start!
What I’m hoping mine will turn out to look similar to:

Next up! Puzzle pieces! My mom is a huge puzzler so we always have puzzle pieces around this house up for stealing 😉 I laid out all the puzzle pieces I wanted to use and painted and painted and painted white. It took five layers to get them solid white and I still would do a layer or more because I’m that picky 😛 After they dry I picked seven pieces, one for the back to keep it all aligned and glued six more pieces in a circle. Add a ribbon and it’s complete!
This is what I hope the final pieces looks like:

(This is a guest “book” everyone signed the puzzle pieces and then they put it together and framed it! SOO COOL)
Hope you enjoyed today’s crafts! I have a few new ones coming soon so you’ll have to stay tuned if you’d like to see what I do with these two next things!
This is a rocking chair that has been passed down from generations on my mom’s side. I’m going to clean it up, add a piece of wood for the seat, some batting, and fabric to make it cute for Emma 😀
This is an old lamp that was given to me to do whatever I please with 😀 I LOVE IT! I’m going to prime it, spray paint it, add a new lamp shade and make it modern and new!
Thanks for stopping by! Now go get crafty 😉
