1. Wrap a doily around a glass vase.
2. Trim any extra fabric
3. Hand stitch the seams where they come together to complete an encasing. You want it as tight as possible, without any excess fabric.
Place a bud in your vase and admire!

we babysat my best friend’s kitten for the weekend, so naturally she helped (and hindered) all my crafting. apparently everything that had a string (which was all) deserved to be attacked. you should see my legs.
fleur de lis necklace i made from recycled jewelry. they were earrings.
another trinket i found in my mom’s stuff. im not sure if they were key chains or earrings that lost all its assembly or what. but i re-beaded some ends and turned them into earrings.
and of course when i’m finished, she passes out. hmph.
this one is so easy, like the nomadic wrap bracelet .
if you have some leather cord, twine, thick string, hell - yarn. whatever, just wrap it a few times, leave yourself some slack and put on a clasp. on this one, i looped the end around and attached a stone bead on the other end by sewing.
