How to Make Some Egg Tea Cups #Easter  #DIY #Craft #TigerStrypesBlog So with Easter being over, how many of you still have the baskets and the eggs sitting around doing nothing?  I had this one, just sitting on my shelf, saying “use me!” We always think, “hey, I’ll just store them for next year.”   Then next year rolls around, we forget they are in […]

Make Some Upcycled Denim Planters #DIY #Craft 25

Make Some Upcycled Denim Planters #DIY #Craft I have a bunch of old pants laying around, hoping to some day become something else.  I remember years ago, my Mom making my brother a blanket with squares of old jeans, but figured I don’t have the time (or the patience) to do that, so wanted to figure out something a bit easier.  I figured that it would […]

Make an Upcycled Seed Starter #DIY #Garden 22

How To Make an Upcycled Seed Starter #DIY #Garden I saw this seed starter project on Made Everyday awhile back, and thought it would be great to make, now that Spring is finally here in the White Mountains.  The oak trees just sprouted leaves, so that tells us that it’s time to start gardening.  Using these will make it fun to plant flowers and help them […]

Create Some Pallet Art for Harvest Season 45

Create Some Pallet Art for Harvest Season I’ve been seeing a lot of these pieces of art using pallets lately, and thought this would be fun to try.  We were driving by a local store, and I saw a pallet leaning on their outside wall.  Headed inside to see if they needed to get rid of it.  They said yes, so I put it in […]

How To Make Artwork From A T-Shirt #TigerStrypesBlog 19

How To Make Artwork From A T-Shirt (#TBCCrafters) Who doesn’t have some T-Shirts, or other old shirts in their closet that are used, but that you really don’t want to get rid of?  My husband always cleans out his closet, when he feels he has too many, and puts some in the “yard sale” box.  There are some that I really didn’t want to get […]


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 […]

“Snowball Fun Time Friends” #TBCCrafters Hop I wanted to make something that went with the snow for this weeks craft.  We got some awhile back, but it’s now melting.  Hoping for more, soon!  Figured that since we haven’t got too much, and weren’t able to actually go outside and have snowball fights for real, I’d make some little guys that could pretend to have one […]

Make Some “Recycled Rake Decor” #TigerStrypesBlog 4

“Recycled Rake Decor/Arrangement” #TBCCrafters Hop I love to recycle things in to something new.  If you have an old rake that no longer is working for you, you can “upcycle” it into some decor for your home or yard.  I really wanted one of the older looking ones, but didn’t have one and couldn’t find one at the thrift stores up here, so I just did […]
