  1. Fabulous ideas! I LOVE the yarn and paper mache ones especially for craft ideas with kids. And of course the spray painted ones are amazing! Thanks for sharing your terrific ideas.

  2. I love the lacey ones and the hand-painted cross stich idea. So pretty and easy to do! I wonder whether it would be safe to use tissue paper though? Would there not be a danger of the paper getting hot and burning?

    Great ideas though! Thanks for sharing 🙂
