Believe it not, I actually had a tub of Styrofoam balls that I bought at Home Goods last year….why did I have a tub of Styrofoam skulls you ask….? No idea! I’m sure when I at the time i was convinced that I could make something fabulous with them, NOT! Truth is, they were probably on clearance and I couldn’t pass up the deal.
So, I have a ridiculous amount of craft supplies that are either left over from previous projects/events, bought on a whim, given to me, or simply too cheap to pass up! I keep coming across these items on a daily basis. I pick them up, look at them, wonder what I was thinking and quickly stuff it back in the box! Ugh…!
I thought to myself, I can’t possibly be the only crafter with this problem…..? I came up with a solution that will both help grow my blog, as well as, make use of those unused crafting supplies! Scraps Aren’t Crap is where I take a random object or tool from my craft room and create something, hopefully spectacular, with it! Here goes!!
Problem: Leftover Rectangle Fabric Pieces
Solution: Mini Fabric Hot Air Balloons and Bow Hair Barrettes
I have an abundance of Fabric left over from making masks a couple of years back. I pondered for a long time on what I could do with all these rectangle pieces of fabric in all different patterns, I actually figured out the perfect thing using every possible inch of those darn pieces!!!
I was able to make 1 Hot air Balloon and 4 Barrettes using 2 pieces of these rectangle pieces! Yay!!! I’m super happy with how adorable the Hot Air Balloon turned out, hopefully I can make enough by Christmas….
