Tag Archives: keeping my hands busy
When Irma was still menacing the sunshine state, I found it a bit difficult to sit still in between weather updates. I mean there are only so many supplies to pick up and so many items that can be pre-packed in emergency go bags. Andy was playing video games to distract himself so that left me with my Kindle to watch things on and for once the Great British Baking show just wasn’t doing it for me. I needed to keep my hands busy so I decided to try out the DIY I featured on the Friday Link Love a couple of weeks ago, the Door Handle Tassel (full tutorial here) DIY by Sugar & Cloth.
There are the originals:
And these are the two I whipped up:
I couldn’t get my hands on the exact supplies recommended, so I improvised a bit, and I have to say I am pretty pleased with how they turned out.
As you know, we did end up evacuating, but everything turned out all right. I even made a third door hanger after we made it home from North Carolina. I’m thinking they might need a little something extra though. Beads, charms, maybe feathers… I am still rolling ideas around in my head. If I get it right, they might even end up being Christmas gifts.
