a collection of crafts

Being so long since I have posted I have a handful of crafts that I have finished up:

1. Monogram Knife Block: I found this knife block at a Goodwill for $2 took it home to spruce it up.  I had seen monogram blocks on pinterest and figured I would try it out.  I'm loving it so far! 

2. Glitter Heels: So my puppy decided that I didn't need my nude heels anymore and stole one and chewed it up, luckily I saved it before it was completely destroyed.  I absolutely loved those heels because they fit perfectly so not wanting to throw them out I followed this tutorial I found on Pinterest and Voila...fixed my chewed up sides and funky glitter shoes.  I used regular glitter instead of the fine stuff, so mine aren't quite as smooth looking as the one in the link but they still look fine.   

 3. Sharpie Mugs: These were probably the easiest thing.  I had 4 white mugs lying around and this tutorial  all you do is write on them and bake them for 30 minutes at 350.  So simple and look really great.  They would also make super neat gifts.  I picked quotes from literature (Gone With the Wind, Mark Twain, Anne Frank, etc.) but you could do pictures, monograms, whatever you wanted.

4. Cross Canvas: This was an old canvas I had lying around and I just painted this design, simple simple simple.   

5. Magnetic Makeup Board: probably the most useful thing ever.  I had my makeup in a container and it took forever to find in the morning so I found this magnetic dry erase board at Michael's on sale and then just attached magnets to the back of my makeup with hot glue...this took a little while.  It is such a big help and looks pretty cool on my bathroom wall too.   

So those are some things that have been keeping me busy lately.  Hope you enjoy :)
