Just a quick reminder that I’m participating in the “Simply the Best” DIY competition right now and could use your votes! Please go vote for my mirror makeover project here. If you want to see more about this contest check out my post from yesterday. Thank you!
Ok, realtalk. I’m not a DIY genius. In fact I probably fail on at least a third of the projects I try to make. Mostly the cooking ones… Because well, I’m human. I’m impatient. Waiting on dry time is the bane of my existence (but I’m practicing at getting better (mostly by distracting myself with another project)). So I’m going to be real with you guys. I had in my head this really cool 4th of July candle holder that I was SUPER geeked about. It was gonna be repurposed with wood and aluminum cans and it was going to be different!
And then it failed. And I stabbed myself with a nail, and it ended up looking like a little kid’s craft project gone horribly wrong. Not to mention that I STABBED MY PALM WITH A NAIL. It hurts. When I told boyfriend about it he promptly asked “Well, are you up to date on your tetanus shots?”.
I don’t think my projects and bruises and scratches from the projects even phase him anymore.
Anyways, back on topic. So I had this great idea, attempted to make it. failed miserable and gave up on the idea for a few hours while I worked on something else.
THEN, as I was putting the cans back in my recycling bin I found a glass jar. Perfect! So I changed my project around, and now I’m happy I did.
See? Epic fail turned out all right! What are some of your 4th of July crafts? I’d love to see them!
Have a great night!
