Sometimes when I'm crafting things just come together so easily........and other times they are a disaster. See the berries in the apothecary jars. This was a "brilliant" idea I had. Take dried fruit off my tree, place in apothecary jars, and have beautiful decoration for FREE! I kept these in my kichen and admired them everyday.
One day a friend was about to arrive and have lunch at my house. At the last minute I noticed the apothecary jar lids were a little dusty and went to clean them off in the sink. Next thing I know the kitchen is starting to stink....BAD! "What is that smell?" I wondered. Then I realized the fruit in my jars was rotting. Yikes! I put the lids back on and quickly lit some scented candles. My friend had a good laugh about it when I told her. Later that day I threw my "brilliant" idea in the garbage.
Here is my lame attempt at stenciling. Not quite spaced evenly. :) But I will try this project again.
"You hear that stenciling?" "I will master you!!!"
Early this Spring I attempted to make a topiary out of malted candy Easter eggs.
Hot glue and candy do not mix. Duh!
What kind of decorating disasters have you had?
