I spent the majority of Saturday cleaning the apartment and doing laundry in anticipation of the arrival of my family this coming weekend. However, after the cleaning drudgery, I felt the urge to do something creative. I’ve finished Mom’s quilt top, but don’t have the needed supplies to complete it (batting, backing, binding) just yet.
While I’m anxious to finish Mom’s quilt, I decided to stick around the house and do something fun with things I had on hand.
I ended up with this:
In our house, we use clothespins to keep our cracker/chips/whatever bags closed. I decided to give them some pizazz with the help of my trusty hot glue-gun.
I bought the little bucket at Target for $1, along with the ribbon, and had no idea what I would do with them, but they had cupcakes and thus HAD to leave the store with me.
So now this little bucket sits on our kitchen counter filled with these adorable clips to keep our Goldfish crackers fresh and crisp.
This super-simple craft fed my creative craving. I highly recommend this quick and simple project for near-instant gratification. Look at all the options! It makes me want to open up every package of foodstuffs in my cupboards!
