Random crafts just to pass the time:
New Years Ornament:
So Kristina and I crossed off something on our bucket list: New Years Eve in Time Square, New York!
The lesson here is to expect to wait a lot longer (I'm guessing 12 hours ahead) to get a decent place in the masses to see the ball.
- New York New Years Eve confetti (stains and all)
- Clear plastic or glass ornaments (2-pk plastic balls at Dollar Tree)
- Permanent marker
- Glue or puffy paint
First fill the ball with confetti. On one of the larger pieces of confetti I wrote out my resolution (to be happy) just in case I open this ball one day and go threw it.
Then I drew out the classic triangle design like the actual New Years Eve Ball with permanent marker.
With puffy paint I wrote out the year (2017) and the location (NYC) and sprinkled on silver glitter.
I'll always remember that cold night of waiting and eating frozen free pizza (from a great person also standing in the masses).
Gold flower pots:
- Gold spray paint ($3.86 at Walmart)
- Clay pots (2-pk at Dollar Tree)
- White rocks (Dollar Tree)
- Cactus ($3 a piece at Walmart)
I think its pretty self explanatory:
Spray paint the pots 2x's, add a couple of rocks to the bottom to help prevent root rot, re-plant the cati, add rocks around the cati but be careful of the spikes and then place them in a well calculated area for all of your guest to enjoy while also meeting the needs of the cati's vitamin D.
