Crafty Housewife

Here are a few crafty things that I've made over the last year... if you need ideas or inspiration.


Flower made from leather scraps from when I was making koozies. Antique button in the middle. Has a pin on the back so it can be worn as a brooch. Can also be attached to the strap of a black leather purse or on a bracelet.

A single earring from Nana's old jewelry made into a ring. I bought a 25 cent adjustable ring base at Party City (had a smily face, was a party favor).
Ring and flower again. (My ugly hand!)
Biker style bracelets... Recycled leather wrapped around plastic rings cut from an old Crystal Light drink mix canister. Could use a plastic bottle of some kind.

Ugly old loveseat that we had in the basement... Before...
Slipcover from Surefit. Pillow covers made by me! After.
