"Is that kragle mommy?"
Those were the first words out of my son's mouth when he saw me working on this project – I had to laugh! He's always so curious whenever I have a project laid out, and of course wants to help. "This time, its a mommy-only project, love" I told him gently. I didn't need him getting any kragle on his delicate little fingers! Krazy Glue is too Krazy strong, Krazy fast for littles to be crafting with.
For those of you that don't know what I'm talking about, kragle = Krazy Glue according to the lego movie. Anyway, I created these two holiday masterpieces in minutes using the new craft glue by Krazy Glue and I couldn't be more excited to share with you on how I made them.
I made both a wreath and a cornucopia with a few simple things from the craft store. For the wreath, I used:
- 1 styrofoam wreath base
- 1 roll of burlap garland
- 4-6 sheets of felt (orange, beige, tan & dark brown)
- 1 bag of mini acorns
- Rustic looking accents
I started by making some felt flowers, and I used my new X-acto knife to cut some straight strips of felt. Roll 'em up and set them aside! Krazy Glue was the perfect medium to use because I didn't have to wait for glue guns to heat up. Its also nice that there's no glue strings or burns either!
Once I had enough flowers made with the different colors of felt I had, I began to wrap the styrofoam with the burlap,
Then using some silk leaves, I glued those down on one side to create the base for where the felt flowers would go.
It's quickly become one of my favorite decorations in the house this fall! Now for that cornucopia….
Using a wicker cornucopia from the craft store, I filled it with the leftover felt from the flowers. Around the rim, I glued down some of the silk leaves, then, I began to glue all the plastic fruits in..
I tied a pretty bow around it – makes a perfect centerpiece for Thanksgiving!
