So, I had some time on my hands while my computer was down. I decided that I needed to keep my hands busy - and shoving chocolate into my mouth was not an option. So, I did the next best thing......I crafted.
First up -- Maternity Mummies
Ever wonder what crazy things you could do with all those vases you have cluttering up the garage? Or what about all those extra pair of gauzy maternity underwear the hospital sends you home with after you've had your baby? What a combination the two make!
All you need is some maternity underwear (unused, of course), a vase, a hot glue gun and some google eyes. Just wrap and glue! (Watch out for glue gun burns!)
I like using the gauze a little better because it stretches easily and fits over the top of the vase. I tried this with recycled ACE bandages, but it didn't work as well. It just looked like a vase wrapped in an ACE bandage.
And never would I have imagined recycling maternity underwear this way!
