[I wanted to share my mantel this morning, but was having tachnical difficulties. Stay tuned though!]
Yeah, that's right. I can't sew.
Or rather, I can sew by hand but that's hardly practical for more than mending. And I do actually have a sewing machine, but I am confounded by the setting up of it all. If someone can get that part done, I'm good. But then I suppose most anyone can sew if they are given a machine that's all threaded and ready to go.
But I can hot glue like a champ! And when I was rummaging around in my various boxes of art supplies, I found a little bag of mirrored discs which got my wheels turning.
I took a pillow cover I already had and copied it with a piece of drop cloth (yes, the same drop cloth from which I cut the snowflakes!) And hey, in 5 minutes flat, it looked like a real live pillow.
Then I layed out the 26 little mirror discs and tried to make something resembling a snowflake.
If you've ever cuddled up to drop cloth and mirror, you may have guessed that this isn't the softest pillow, but I like the look and it cost me zero bucks to make, so I think that's a win.
Linking up to the Christmas decor party at A Thoughtful Place.
