It's been a long, hot summer.....way, too long. I feel like I haven't left the house in ages. I can't wait for some cooler weather. Maybe soon? All this keeps me inside the house and looking for some crafty ways to keep busy.
I came up with this idea a few weeks ago. Something inspired me-don't even remember what it was. Maybe it's the fact that when I take out a recipe it lies on the counter and get most of the ingredients attached to it. Yuck....
This little DIY item works!
-Wood dowel. Mine is about 2" in diameter. Home Depot or Lowe's carries them. It's about 6 inches high.
-Wood stand. I bought mine at a craft store for 50 cents.
-A clothes pin. In this case, I found this ladybug at the craft store. It obviously will hole the recipe card for me. You could use a plain clothes pin and glue something to the top to embellish it.
-clear varnish to finish
I cut the dowel on an angle so it keeps my recipe card properly positioned-so I can actually see it.
I glued the dowel to the base and then glued the ladybug to the dowel.
Next it was painted and then sprayed with clear gloss. Done!
