Supplies (from the dollar store)
a 2 pack of sm. candle holders ($1)
2 lg. candle holders ($1 each)
3 glass containers ($1 each) They have a lot of different ones to choose from!
Craft glue or E6000
Take one of the large candle holders and put glue around the part where you put the candle in.
Take the small candle holder and place it on the large candle holder that you just put glue on. Hold it or place something heavy on it while it dries 5-10 minutes (really it was a little longer than that and if you are using E6000 it will be much longer than that)
Next put glue on the remaining small candle holder.
Flip one of the glass containers over and press the small candle holder that you just put glue on onto the bottom of the glass container.
Do the same thing with the remaining large candle holder and with the small and large candle holders that you already glued together.
Place something heavy on them while they dry.
Here they are all finished up on my pantry. I love them!!!

small terrecotta pot and the drip pan thingy
A small round glass votive holder that would fit on top of your pot when it is flipped upside down.
Black spray paint
Round wooden ball w/ one side flattened.
1. Spray paint pot and drip pan thingy black. It took several coats for my pot to get a nice even finish.
2. After everyting is dry place your pot upside down and glue the glass votive holder on w/ the opening on top of course.
3. Glue the round wooden ball the the drip pan thingy to make it look like a lid.
4. Fill jar w/ candy and put the lid on top of the jar. It should look like a bubble gum machine.
I will post pics. as soon as I take some!!

I guess he was thirsty because he resorted to drinking out of that thingy that catches the overflow of water on the outside of the fridge. That's our boy always thinking outside the box! :)
On a side note that is the 90 minute shirt from MADE It was super easy and didn't even actually take 90 minutes. I have made like 4 of them now. Love them!!!
I completely forgot to post my Tuesday Tutorial, so I am posting it today.
Sewing Machine ;)
Step 1: Cut your socks right above the heel; as shown in picture.
Step 2: Take the unfinished edge of your sock and sew it on the very edge with a zigzag stitch that is REALLY close together (like you would sew an applique). I played around with how big I wanted my zigzag and ended up doing a 4.0 on my machine for the width. You can practice on the foot part that you cut off. As you sew it you want to stretch the sock in front of and back of the needle. This is what is going to give you a girly ruffled edge. Sew like this all the way around and you are finished!!
And here is my little model showing off her new funky "baby legs...for arms". If you can think of a catchy name let me know. **Yes, they are different than the ones I was sewing. They came in a two pack and the other ones weren't handy.

3 different types of fabric
Drop Waist (top of skirt; this is where the elastic will go) 6" x "38
Top Layer 13" x width of fabric (times 2)
Bottom Layer 15" x width of fabric (times 2)
Ribbon Holder (scrap of fabric) 3 1/4" x 15 1/2"
3/8" ribbon 15" (times 2)
I will explain how to adjust these measurements to fit someone other than a size 6. O.K. so lets start out by figuring out the length of the skirt that you would like it to be. Decide how long you want the skirt and take your drop waist measurement (mine is 6") and your bottom layer measurement (mine is 15") add them together (mine is 21") and then subtract out 3" for seam allowances and the elastic casing (mine is 19").
Take the drop waist layer and sew the sides together. You should have one continuous loop now.
Take your drop waist fabric and iron down the top about a 1/4".
