Sunday I was able to work on a project that was, again, inspired by a project I saw on Pinterest. When I say it I couldn't wait to cut up the Ouiji board that has been hanging in the garage for a very long time. I thought I was going to have to really sweet talk my husband into "donating" it to the cause and then into cutting it up. Cut up a Ouiji board! That has to be a really bad thing! Why do you think I asked him to do it? Thankfully, nothing bad happened. He also had another one he preferred over this one so I was very lucky. I am lucky...he is the most amazing man.
So, back on topic. Early on in my Pinterest adiction I saw the photo and then went to the site for these little houses. I was immediatley facinated and couldn't wait to give it a shot. It's kind of like making cards but these are a little more decorative. Once these are completed I will attach a way to hand them. They will be a nice piece to hang on a wall as they are a little too big and a lot to un-Christmas like to hang as an ornament unless you have a tree that stays up year round. Do you? I'd be jealous if you do!
Like I said, I found the project on www.pinterest.com and if you click through you will find it takes you to craftster.org but I accidently came across it on another blog site but now can't find it....darn. But I was inspired and used her pieces for inspiration but found that I'm putting my spin on them as usual. I liked her's a lot, especially the one with the skeleton on it (note the skull bead on one of them), but right now I vow not to purchase anything new until I use, repurpose, sort/organize, give away or throw away some of the "stuff" I've collected/hoarded, over the last year or so and so far I've been able to use what I have on these houses! Yay!
Hear are the first few. I have about 7 more to do and I'm really having fun coming up with something a little different for each one. Wish me luck on the rest. I may need it. Remember....this is a cut up Ouiji board!
