Make Some Mummy Candleholders #Halloween #TigerStrypesBlog 2

Make Some Mummy Candleholders #TigerStrypesBlog #Halloween I cannot believe that it’s already the end of October.  Where does time go?  With our son almost being 18, the days of trick-or-treating are over.   Well, until we take the Grandkids, but that will be a long, long, …….long time in the future!!  Better be, anyway. 🙂 I wanted to make something easy and fun for decorations this […]

Wicker Plate Tray Halloween Pumpkin Craft #TigerStrypesBlog 21

Wicker Plate Tray Halloween Pumpkin Craft #Halloween#Craft #TigerStrypesBlog The weather here in the mountains of Arizona is always getting cold in the evening.  Halloween just a few weeks away, if we end up carving a real pumpkin…it will be toast by the time the trick-or-treater crowd gets here.  I figured that I could make some Wicker Plate Tray Halloween Pumpkins, like I saw on Pinterest […]


Make Some Fall Candy Dishes #TigerStrypesBlog 28

Make Some Fall Candy Dishes With Fall finally here, and the leaves just starting to change here in the White Mountains of Arizona, I always love having my home decorated to match.  I saw something like these on Pinterest and Real House Mom’s blog, and thought that they would be fun to make. I wish that I would have bought some of the pots at Dollar […]

Make a Utensil Table Helper #TigerStrypesBlog 14

Make a Utensil Table Helper I always love seeing things, that are made out of something else.  You know, old detergent bottles turned into watering cans…things like that?  The great thing of upcycling or reusing items for something else, always make me smile.  I saw something like this for sale in a catalog the other day…at about $25.00 and thought, hmmm, I’ll just make my […]


Turn Toys Into a Cable Holder 40

Turn Toys Into a Cable Holder (#CreateDesignDiscover) I saw something like this online the other day and thought it would be fun to make.  They had theirs as just one figure, and it was very simple, so I thought that I would change it up.  Making it larger to hold more cables, as well as adding a little center portion to hold a key. Who […]

Make a Table Setting Card Holder From a Fork! 15

Make a Table Setting Card Holder From a Fork! (#CreateDesignDiscover) I recently saw something like this on Pinterest and thought it would be fun to try.  They were using theirs to hold photos, which is also a great idea, but I figured it would be fun to change it up and use them as a part of the table setting.  What a great way to […]


Watermelon Coasters – Plastic Canvas Project #TigerStrypesBlog 23

Watermelon Coasters – Plastic Canvas Project (#TBCCrafters) I found a free plastic canvas project online for this plastic canvas watermelon coasters project, and thought it would be fun to try!  I’ve been a cross-stitcher forever, but it’s starting to be hard with my vision, and my hands.  I figured I’d try plastic canvas to see if it was any easier.  I’m not a pro at […]

Make A Thread Vase With Flowers #TigerStrypesBlog 19

Make A “Thread Vase” With Flowers (#TBCCrafters) I saw something like this on the Better Homes & Gardens website and thought it would be fun to change it up just a bit.  They had made little flowers out of hearts, but I figured having my crafty little Cricut Explore, I could “one-up” them on that, and make it even more detailed.  Since we just recently celebrated […]


Convert A Colander Into A Planter #TigerStrypesBlog 33

Convert A Colander Into A Planter (#TBCCrafters) The oaks here in the mountains still haven’t sprouted, so I’m still delaying my gardening.  Even though it’s Spring, so many times, we end up planting things and then Mother Nature says “ha/ha suckers”.  We then get a snow storm over our newly planted garden…even in the month of April.  So for that, I’ll just wait, and make […]

Make Your Own Business Card Holder #TigerStrypesBlog 9

Make Your Own “Business Card Holder”(#TBCCrafters) I’ve been really trying to think about what to create for this weeks #TBCCrafters post, but figured we’re about halfway between Easter and Mother’s Day and there’s really nothing much happening right now.  I thought I would keep it simple and make something up that could be used to help organize your desk or counter at work. This was pretty […]


Make Your Own Tablet Holder #TigerStrypesBlog 17

Make Your Own “Cutting Board” Tablet Holder(#TBCCrafters) I pray that you had a blessed Easter, or Resurrection Celebration, last week.  Our family celebrated with our church at their service…wonderful music, amazing teaching, a blessing for sure.  We then went out to lunch and enjoyed some time as a family.  Living in a place where there is none of our family close, I don’t really have […]

How To Build a “Repurposed Building Block Table” 41

How To Build a “Repurposed Building Block Table“ I saw something like this on Pinterest, and thought it was adorable.  I went around to local thrift shops looking for one of these tables.  Probably should have gone to an antique shop, since these were popular when I was little! 🙂  I finally found someone on a local FB selling page that had one for only […]


Make Some “Rose Candle Holders” #TigerStrypesBlog 16

Create Your Own Rose Candle Holders #TBCCrafters Hop I am still getting back to normal life following our vacation to CA.  Wow, that was a long drive.  We were able to visit the beautiful Moss Landing area, Monterey Bay Aquarium, the Winchester Mystery House, and our son got to have a great time at the beach – even though the water was FREEZING!! ha/ha  Here are […]

How to Make a “Pumpkin Candy Holder” #TigerStrypesBlog 6

How to Make a “Pumpkin Candy Holder” I saw a little thing that Silhouette Craft Studio was offering and decided to download it, but decided to make it a bit different.  It was first set to be a bat (which I’ll probably use at one time), which explains the extra things in one of the pictures below.  I decided to make it what I wanted and turned […]
