Angela and Stacy of Bubba's Basics put the whole thing together, including the yummy bagels and fruit to get us started, all of the project and the awesome lunch. They did a ton of work.
For the pallet they didn't give us any sample ideas, as they hadn't figured what they wanted on their own pallets. Despite all of us being a bunch of crafters we were stumped, quickly scrambling to pull up Pinterest for ideas.
But soon our creative juices got flowing and it was so awesome to see all of the different ideas everyone came up with.
I made a family sign (thanks to the school teacher that was there who helped me with writing the word family as I cannot write neatly).
After a yummy lunch....
Several of us covered our letters with moss. We used mod podge to stick the moss on and let's just say it was a pain!
Then we made the butterfly jars. We glued down half a styrofoam ball and covered it with moss, then we stuck butterflies on thin little wires into the ball. Looking back it would have been way easier to stick the butterflies in the ball then glue down the moss as my wires kept bending when I tried to poke them in after the fact. Some of the ladies glued their ball to the lid of the jar and turned the whole thing upside down and I liked that look better, live and learn right?
It was a fun day and not only did I come home with the projects I made but a bag full of goodies from all the great sponsors.
Have you done any crafting projects recently?
