You might remember my chevron spree a few weeks back…

 

I chevron-ed this table…

This pinboard…

A few other things…

and… *drumroll*

First I stained and painted the various boards…

Then… Using my stencil from Cutting Edge, I used my foam roller and rolled away.

Then I grabbed my wire and needle nose pliers…

Then I drilled a few holes to attach my wire words…

I made them to take up to the shop.  

Let’s just say I fell in love with them and kept one of course!

Spring? Where art thou? A DIY on fancying up a cheap pitcher!

Yes… We got a skiff of snow last night and Spring doesn’t feel very close at all.

 

The groundhog lied.

And I’m pretty sure the robins are regretting their decision to come back so soon.

lol!

 

Regardless….  I’m in the mood to post something SPRING-Y!

 

DIY in Real Life: How to fancy up a cheap pitcher

This was a SUPER easy project that you could totally do while curled up on the warm couch watching a movie.

This makes me think of outdoor parties… and having friends over… and grilling… and well…

SPRING!!! lol!

DIY in Real Life: How to fancy up a cheap pitcher

All you need are cheap glass pitchers… (I got these at Wal-Mart)

Copper wire… Or any finish wire, I suppose? (I used stripped electrical wire, actually. Cause that’s just what I had lying around if I remember right.  Craft wire from a hobby store would work too as long as it doesn’t rust?)

Beads of choice…

And a pliers/wire cutters/jewelry tools/etc… Use whatever your weapon of choice is.  😉

DIY in Real Life: How to fancy up a cheap pitcher

As you can see close up…. I just wrapped the wire round and round the handle adding curlies here and there along with the occasional beads.  Super easy!

I even made some napkin rings while I was at it.

The only downside?  Ummm…. In this picture, it looks like pee.

Sorry about that.

I didn’t have lemonade on hand so I just used yellow food coloring.

Yeah…  Not really convincing.
