April Craft Challenge – make something that includes a kitchen utensil.
Just in case you are new and this is the first you are hearing about this, here’s the scoop. On the Third Monday of every month, Amelia, (she blogs over at You Can Always Start Now) and I do a project or post based on one chosen DIY craft or theme, then we share our results and hopefully have inspired you to join our challenge.
This month was a bit of a challenge for me as I wanted to try to do something really different and unique but in the end I made something using an item that was destined for Goodwill (an old box cheese grater). This item also turned out to be something I actually needed and use daily.
I had left over spray paint from another project and on the warmest day we had thus far – (it was +5), I took my grater and spray paint and went to the great outdoors (ok my patio and only a few steps from the door, but it was still outside lol).
Once it was dry I only spent about 15 minutes hanging some of my favorite pieces of jewelry(the jewelry I wear most often) on my repurposed box cheese grater.
Amelia from You Can Always Start Now was very creative with some kitchen cutlery. Be sure to check out her post.
Can you see the spoon among the violets? Amelia picked up some spoons at the Dollar Store and used some wrapping paper that had some flowers on it. She cut out the flowers and used shellac to adhere them to the spoons.
It was a quick and easy craft, a little bling for her plants. This idea could be adapted in a variety of ways and would look great in a vase by themselves or they could be used as markers in the garden.
Here is a closer view of each project …
Our themes so far have been, January canvas, February we used puzzle pieces, March we created using yarn and this month we re-purposed or incorporated a kitchen utensil. (The links to our challenge results can be found at the end of this post.)
Be sure to Mark Your Calendar for May as we will be crafting using a picture frame.
Craft Challenges are such A Wandaful Thing!
