A blog about the four C's of my life - Children, Crafting, Cleaning, Cooking!
We almost all have them and should all have a place to share them!

Spring Thyme Crafting

How cute are these?!

A friend of mine shared these, and I just knew I had to make and share them!

They were so simple and look so natural and cute!

Here is how I made them:


Small Peat Pots
Spanish Moss
Muslin Scraps
Battery Operated Tea Light
Fine Point Permanent Marker
Modge Podge or White Glue
Needle Nose Pliers
1)  Take your wire and pliers and poke it through the insides of your pot on both sides,
using your pliers twist the wire to have the small curl shown.

2) Fill your pot with a samll amount of spanish moss

3) Cut a small piece of  muslin into a tiny rectangle, with your marker write Spring.
Once you have finished writing turn over and brush on the 
modge podge and attach to the pot.

4) Cut a small piece of twine and tie onto wire handle in a bow

5) Place tea light in the pot nestled among the spanish moss!

Your Done!

Place a few on a window sill or mantle etc. or give as a gift!

If you make them take pictures and come back and share,
I would love to see them!
