Crafting My Little Heart Out

This weekend I was a little busy doing some crafts. I was giving some bowls and a basket a new look and making a few goodies from scratch.
Here is a batch of bowls that I gave a black primer coat to. I got a really good deal on the smaller wooden bowls at the Salvation Army. 10 bowls for $1.00. Couldn't beat that deal. I have had the larger wooden bowls for a little while and just finally figured out what I want to do with them.
 I painted one of the smaller wooden bowls a burnt orange but it still isnt finished yet.
 I also painted one of the larger wooden bowls a moon yellow but still again it isnt quite ready.
 I wonder what I could be making with Styrofoam balls and Rigid Wrap. I also used some tea dyes cheese cloth and black buttons. Have you figured it out yet?
I made some mummy heads. Aren't they about the saddest things you ever seen?...lol
Here is the Rigid Wrap I used to wrap my Styrofoam balls with but I also took some aluminum foil and lined an outside of a bowl with it  and made this bowl also using Rigid Wrap.
Im not quite finish with this either. I have a lot of work to do to it. I have to tell you if you havent worked with Rigid Wrap before. You have to try it. It is so neat to work with. I also poked a hole on each side of the bowl for a handle.
Here is a before pic of a basket I am painting. I just love baskets that you can hang on the wall,
Here is the basket getting a fresh coat of True Burgundy. I have a few ideas for it but I havent quite decided which one I want to do. I guess your going to have to just wait and see.
My last project that I am also work on is making some corn on the cobs. I couldnt resist the pattern on the fabric when I saw it. I just knew I had to make some corn on the cobs with it. They are so just darn cute!

I would also like to announce that I have added a page to my blog just for recipes. I will be trying to add recipes everyday.
