This year I think that I might have it hard but truly am blessed because I have clean water. It is way more important than any silly Christmas present I might be asking for this year.

Paper Wreath Class

It might have been an evening of many hot glue gun burns but it was also a great evening of creating. It was great fun showing all the ladies that joined us for an evening of using things you have already and making something lovely out of them. I will post pictures that I took of the class on my flickr.

I have found this is quite a popular holiday decor this year in many places such as Etsy, even Apartment Therapy had a little article on the D.I.Y decor!

Here are some of the wreaths on Etsy that have inspired me.

Mars D.I.Y. Night

Mark your calenders, Tuesday November 24th, 7-9pm will be the next gathering of Do It Yourselfer's at Mars Cafe.

To start the chilly season off this year we will be making creative neckwear out of repurposed t-shirts.

Supplies Needed:
1. T-shirt you are willing to cut up, one or more needed. Chose one in the color you want your neckwear to be and has as little of design as you can find. (You can't use any of the t-shirt area that has image on it for this project.)
2. Scissors that cut fabric well
3. Ruler
To bring if you have on hand
4. Cutting Mat
5. Rotatory cutting blade
6. Chalk for marking fabric

Here's a little video to get your juices flowing with another type of necklace.

Hope to See you There!
