Fantastic Friday Finds!

I think this week I should call this – Friday Finds- Artsy Fartsy edition!

With the weather cooling off and the sun setting earlier and earlier, I find that there is a little more time for crafty creative stuff. The holidays and the time indoors just screams- get out the paint and hot glue gun!!!

First from TitiCraft is this amazingly awesome bat garland! So super cute, and easy, I think my front porch needs one!!


Next from Party Planning Center are these very cute Wine Glass Lampshades. There is a free printable template, and with all the patterned paper out there the possibilities are endless! She does caution about paper shades and candles (duh!) so some battery operated tealights may be in order!


This next one comes from a website that is in Spanish and between my limited knowledge of the language and Google translates equally  limited knowledge of the language- I’m just not sure what it’s called. But here is the link and here is the very crafty, cute things that caught my eye. I always empty laundry bottles sitting on top of my washer in the recycle bin. Might have to make one of these critters!

Speaking of lamps… I am so impressed with Gina over at The Shabby Creek Cottage and her book lamp! I am intimidated by electricity though… might have to get super hubby involved if I make one of these!


And that my friends is your daily dose of inspiration for today! Get busy on some weekend creativity!!

    We used to make critter piggy banks out of old Clorox bottles, very similar to what you have posted here & that was back in the 60s!
