On the way home from a girl’s night out with my Mother-in-law yesterday, the two of us started chatting about our DIY/ crafting/ decorating skills. While she is typically not a crafter at all, I DO enjoy crafty projects, but I have a terrible time visualizing what I want to create unless I’m looking at an example that someone craftier than I has put together.
My mother-in-law claims that she is not crafty at all (probably about as strongly as I feel about my home decorating skills…in other words, I’m severely lacking!).
The best way for me to be crafty is to have easy-to-follow directions. As long as someone else has come up with the idea first, I can almost always recreate something fairly decent.
The following super-easy DIY floral centerpieces tutorial by Victoria at A Subtle Revelry is perfect for me. I love that the project takes only 3 components and can be easily customized for your party colors.
How to make a quick and easy 3-piece summery centerpiece:
This centerpiece craft takes 10 minutes or less and uses the 3 simple components: a bowl, a foam craft ball and flowers. It’s fast enough that you could whip up a couple of them in no time at all.
See? Even I can create something like this!
I think I’ll leave the after-crafting clean up to my kids… (we tend to make big messes around our house, especially where paper and markers are concerned) so there’s ALWAYS something to wipe down and clean up.
