Hi everyone!! I’m in charge of crafts this year for my local MOPs (mothers of preschoolers). Its a Christian based group that gets together a couple times a month for some other adult connection and community. Its strange that motherhood can be such a lonely thing. Its nice to share it with others. So, here are the crafts we are doing this year in my group. I made up examples for my group.
Class or Challenge Title: Apparition
Project Name & Page Link: Wood Slice Ornaments
Brief Description: I decided it would be fun to do personalized ornaments for our christmas trees this year. I painted the slice with black paint, used my cricut to cut out a little vinyl transfer (which was a little unruly in the weeding, but I managed) and then added little details on the sides of the vinyl writing with paint pens. I drilled a hole at the top for string.
Class or Challenge Title: Hermoine’s Book Club - The Worst Birthday
Project Name & Page Link: Bracelets
Brief Description: Being a Mom can be heavy, sometimes. It was strangely lonely being with kids all day. So I joined MOPs so I could help find my people and beat away some of that heavy loneliness. When we make these bracelets, we will be able to wear them and remember that we are not alone. I love these bracelets. They are so easy and can be easily changed up to what suits you. Mine are made with cording and glass beads, woven together.
Class or Challenge Title: Charms
Project Name & Page Link: Jar Sign
Brief Description: I found these super cute blank mason jar signs on amazon. I love them! I did a ombre look for the background, painted an outline of the jar around the sides, applied vinyl wording, and some twine. Mason jars are so totally my jam! I’m going to hang mine on the front door. I might even add it to a wreath of some kind.
Class or Challenge Title: Herbology
Project Name & Page Link: Sugar Scrubs
Brief Description: My sister asks for these babies for Christmas and her birthday. They are an easy gift, for sure! Just dump all the ingredients into a bowl, stir and put into a cute jar! I did one with 1c white sugar, 7 drops of lavender oil, and a tablespoon of lavender buds. The other one is 1/2c raw sugar, 1/2c brown sugar, and 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon and a dash of almond extract. They are so soothing during a shower and leaves your skin feeling so soft and smooth.
