Amy from Joyful Daisy is at it again with another MacKenzie-Childs knock off! This time Amy made over her mom’s cookie jars with pretty ceramic knobs and painted lids. Here’s from Amy: “These cookie jar lids only took a couple hours with drying time yet look so cute. I snuck over to my mom’s, grabbed her plain lids, painted them up, and returned them before she got home from work! She was so excited and noticed them right away.”
Carlee of Ladybird Ln had an awkward wall in her kitchen where a chimney had once been. She found a cute utensil hook rack that would be the perfect solution for the space, but it was too pricey and too small. Not a problem for Carlee, who was able to make an even larger hook rack with her own twist for a fraction of the cost. She says, “By finding a fun wrought iron decorative piece and thrift store utensils for mere pennies, I created a one-of-a-kind charming piece that is both functional and decorative. My aprons have never been so happy!”
Elisha of Pneumatic Addict Furniture has admired Ballard’s Terra Cotta Pears for years, but it wasn’t until a recent craft store trip that she was inspired to make her own. Elisha combined a Styrofoam ball and cone to make her 13 inch pear form and then added texture and depth with tissue paper and paint. I think she did a great job giving it a realistic look!
