.....and I say "Nope iaries" because these aren't your traditional topiaries.
Granted, they started out with the intent to be, but we all know what they say about good intentions. I figure I needed to get the most bang for my buck with the boxwood, so I stirred clear of the large balls that require more than one bunch of it.
I'm gearing up for the biggest craft show of the year in this area, so I have a lot of furniture to be painted and accessories to be made, and not a lot of time to do it.
Ever heard of the Webb School Art & Craft Festival in historic Bell Buckle, TN?
No? WHAT? Where have you been?
If you're in the middle TN area or within a reasonable driving distance, you'll really wanna put this on your calendar. HUNDREDS of vendors in the best little downtown area ever.
Vendors come from all over the US to be a part of this one.
Anyway, when I get ready for a craft market, my modus operandi is to raid my supply storage, gather a bunch of like things, and just start making stuff until I run out of supplies.
Then I move on to the next batch of like supplies, and so on, and so on.
I enjoy upcycling furniture, but I really get into making all the little things you need in a booth for space fillers and furniture toppers.
At my last market 2 weeks ago, I sold 2 full 4' x 8' tables of those type of fillers, so now I have to get busy stocking up again.
We all know that greenery makes everything more cozy, and in my area, anything made with boxwood always sells first.
So, boxwood it is!
Here are a few of the things I made yesterday.
Simple, but pretty, just the way I like them.
I made something with all of the pots you see in the first picture, but I've only picked a few to share right now.
The 'How-to' should be self explanatory, but just in case you'd like to make one and need info on how to do so, let me know in the comments and I'll post a step by step for ya.
And for good measure, I made several of these spoon bird nests. I got a great deal on a whole jar of these little spoons, so I had to come up with something for them. I made half of them into magnets, which are really fun to scatter on the fridge.
Hope you enjoy these little projects and make some for yourself.
