This yarn and beer bottle craft only happens every two years, I’m surprised it doesn’t happen more often, because I have enough yarn to knit a sweater for Akbar’s entire building. Look for more yarn crafts in 2013, we have only the best and brightest skeins for inspiration.
The general tendency for this weeks featured craft is to obtain a bottle (done very easily at our bar) and put glue on it, and then arrange yarn onto the bottle in pleasing colors and patterns, and voila, it makes a great candle holder! So then we’ve got yarn, bottles, candles and more!
This year, I’m taking it to the next level, revvin’ it, ampin’ it, jackin’ it, vampin’ it UP WITH SPARKLY THINGERS! You will be able to add sparkly personality to your candle in the form of pokey things that are kind of a combination of gems and tacks, in that you can stick them IN the candle and make the candle itself be part of your miraculous centerpiece!
Before you get all cold feet and freaked out by thinking “oh, this is a complicated one!” just STOP thinking that way and get in here. You’ve got to remember that there’s nothing to fear at CraftNight, and even if there was: the emotion of fear has nothing to do with success! Lots of people are scared to try new experiences, or things that are complex or new or weird, and just the attempt to try anything new or differently is a success in itself.
If you feel flubbed up on your New Year’s resolutions, the Georgian New Year happened just last night, so you can start over, and if that doesn’t work for you, the Chinese New Year is coming up, and you can revisit your goals and aspirations, dust yourself off and try again.
See you and the yarn at the Craft Table,
