I realize I've been sharing a lot more crafts than food with you lately, but I just had to show you my latest creation. I got the idea from Artzy Creations, but I had to adapt a little because I couldn't find a wood cutout in the shape of an owl (or anything big enough for a clock, really). So I bought another shape I liked, thinking I'd just do something abstract, and halfway through I realized it was still looking like an owl, so I just went for it. I am really happy with how it came out!
You can find all of the instructions over on Artzy Creations. I got all of my pieces at Michael's. The paper I used was for sale on the 25 cent rack! I got a few packs with all different patterns - I think I'll be able to use them for lots of crafts.
The only major problem I encountered was that, because I used a big piece of wood and not a wood cut out, the clock wasn't long enough to go all the way through the wood. I needed to take a big hunk of wood out of the back for the clock to fit in. Of course, I don't have any very fancy tools, so I went to the hardware store and for $5 they did it for me! It was a great deal if you ask me.
And while we're talking crafts, I also decoupaged this vase with some tissue paper I had around the house. Then I picked up these flowers for only $3.99 at Trader Joe's on Sunday - my place feels so fun and autumnal! It was a very crafty week! What do you think of my mod podge creations? I am pretty excited about them! Don't worry though, there is a food recipe coming soon!
