Dollar Tree Wagon

This is a really cute easy display or centerpiece. (No it does not roll)  Put kids toys in it or kitchen items or gnomes. I think I'm going to put some apples and maybe a Fake Bake Pie in mine.

Storage Ideas

Hanging File Folders are great for organizing felt and other materials

Modern Farmhouse Storage Cabinet

I rescued the cabinet (it might have been a shoe rack) My sister made me a butcher block top and I painted it with chalkboard paint. I made the boxes from cardboard I duct taped together to get the sizes I wanted. I covered them with burlap on the outside and felt on the inside. Added cheap cabinet knobs I got from Menards. I then stenciled some of them to label what's inside. This replaces the "junk drawer" and is the most used item in my house.

Burlap
Making Crafts with Burlap is really popular right now. However I am constantly amazed when buying burlap how many clerks do not know how to cut it properly. Burlap has a large weave and will unravel easily. That weave often shifts. So that 1/2 yard you purchased may only have 12" of usable fabric if it is simply measured with the yard stick and cut.
How to Cut Burlap
A lot of times you need the burlap to stand up. I use Mod Podge to stiffen fabric however a Craft or Elmers Glue can be used to. There are lots of different opinions about the ratio between water and glue. I prefer a watery mixture, so the fabric is a little more pliable when it dries. Just keep in mind the more Mod Podge/ Glue you use the Stiffer the fabric will be.

Measure and Cut Burlap

If you measure burlap with a yardstick and simply cut like regular fabric you will NOT get a square piece.

How to Stiffen Burlap
For carrot greens above I used a 30% Mod Podge/70% water mixture. I also added a little bit of green paint cause I wanted my burlap darker

Swear Jar With a Twist
Swear Jars have been around since I was a kid. (Yes I am OLD) Everyone knows about the concept .. An adult says a bad word in front of a child and they pay. I had the kids draw pictures associated with "No Bad Words" (or in our case No Bad "Woreds") and together we Mod Podged them unto a jar. Not unique concept or even one of our more cleverly  designed crafts. However ...
Here's the Twist
Between Music, TV, Videos and YouTube being everywhere, trying to supervise what kids are exposed to is getting more difficult. So yes the adults pay if they say a bad word BUT if the child is caught watching or listening to something that has bad words in it and they don't change the channel, switch the video etc.  MONEY COMES OUT.
