Sometimes I’m Crafty

by Nicci on 01/17/2011

New Years Eve rolled around I was able to get a little crafty for the occasion.  I was ringing in the new year, but  also celebrating my cousin’s birthday.  This was the perfect time to make a fun masquerade mask.

Midnight Masquerade!

I checked out my favorite store, The Dollar Tree, for inexpensive craft materials.  Kirstyn came over later and we got started on designing our masks.

Materials used:

  • $1Store feathered mask
  • $1Store glitter glue
  • rhinestones of any color ($3 a pack from Hobby Lobby)
  • chopstick  ( we scored last minute, finding some in my kitchen drawer)
  • hot glue gun (borrowed from a friend)

Total: $5 Masquerade Mask!

Good Times!

My favorite craft blogs:

My next craft adventure will be crocheting again and making a tunnel scarf.

What was your last craft adventure?

Have a great Monday!!

I’m really trying to be more crafty…last thing I did was make a wine cork candle thing…ok, I really just filled the bottom of a candle holder with wine corks….I said I was trying!
Your mask turned out great!

That is a really cool mask! I love the colors – you can tell it’s handmade because the “bedazzled” look is so original!

You’re quite the creative lady! ;)

I don’t craft nearly enough … I have no idea what the last thing I crafted might have been …

My latest craft adventure is a black and white circle scarf that I’ve been dawdling over for the past year. I only work on it when I am momentarily possessed by Martha Stewart, and that only happens every few weeks. The scarf will probably be ridiculously beautiful- when/if I ever finish it ;)

You made that??!! So pretty. If I ever have a Mardi Gras party I know who to contact :)

I haven’t done anything crafty in a while but I used to crochet all the time and need to start on that again.

Love this–it’s so cute & fun!! My grandma actually works at Dollar Tree so she is always letting me know when they have crafty things I could use!

That is an awesome mask, I wish I had an excuse to don such a thing! I haven’t been crafty in awhile, but I’ve been stocking up on supplies. You’ve inspired me to get on it!

NIce! Love the crafts. I haven’t made crafts since Austin’s birthday in August, but i’m going to make a lot this week for my sister’s shower!

That is so fun! I am like the least crafty person around.

Good job! It’s been a while since I’ve been crafty actually.
