Yarn Wrapped Spool Ornaments

Just sharing these quick and simple spool ornaments today, which were a Eureka moment thanks to the impulse buy section at Michaels.  The sequin ornaments I shared a few days ago were also impulse buy creations, so we have ourselves a little series here, I guess!

DIY Sequin Ornaments

I was wandering around Michaels the other evening (my preferred method for relaxation) and I saw a small bag of glitter covered styrofoam balls.  Pretty, but nothing unique…until I saw a little sequin ball in the same package.  As Gru would say, “LIGHTBULB”.  And guess what?  I had picked up a roll of hot pink…

Sharpie Embellished Copper Striped Tray

Remember when I asked whether I should cover an entire tray in copper stripes?  Well, the opinion was pretty unanimous to keep it at 8 stripes, so I did what I was told and left it at that.  And left it.  And left it.  And left it some more.  It sat, with its 8 lovely…

Olaf from Frozen Crochet Amigurumi Pattern

The idea for an Olaf stuffie came from a quick random survey I asked on Facebook (Like my page if you want to participate in the randomness!), but really, after the initial idea came out, the whole thing just snowballed.  Yup, pun intended of course!  After days of scrolling through Olaf pictures and drawing out…
