From Pinterest to Real Life: March 2013
Written by editor Nicole Bennett of Gidget Goes Home.
Hello fellow pinners & crafters! It’s that time again, where we showcase how we’ve taken our pins from just inspiration to actual creative reality.
I’ve been in the kitchen a lot this month, with our diet shift in full swing, but I did want to share one fun project I made a bit of time for with you. This even counts as an Attack the Craft Stash post as well, because I used up items I already had to do it: double win!
Seashell tealight candles
I just love this project that I pinned from Design*Sponge a few weeks ago. Their tutorial was easy to follow and full of much prettier photos that weren’t taken at 9:45 at night. 😉
It was an easy, if a bit messy, project that I made in no more than a half an hour, with tealights that I still have leftover from my wedding when we bought a ginormous bag of them at Ikea.
Add to that seashells found at the beach, of which we always have a plethora, and that was that! My “new” shell candles will be a great outdoor decoration when we starting eating outside more.
