Karla Krafts

This is where I log craft projects, ideas, products, materials and sources including links. I'll also document sources of inspiration. I love crafts, including knitting, quilting, scrapbooking, stained glass crafting and others. My specialties were knitted baby caps and glycerin soaps I call "Gemsoaps." Now, I'm into embroidery and beading.

Fairy Lights

I want my craft room (studio!) to be an inviting, enchanted space. So, inspired by these:

(They are by Mallory Jane of Hayseed Homemakin'. I found them on Pinterest.)

I bought a string of 100 white lights with white wires and these rolls of trim:

I strung the lights along the handrail in the stairwell that leads to my room. I cut short, 5-6" lengths of the sparkly pink organza ribbon and tied them around each light bulb:

I cut the rosettes apart on the other trim, poked a hole in the middle of each one, and slid them over the tiny light bulbs:

I compared to see which I like better. The pink organza ribbon won hands down, though I do think the little white rosettes would be cute for a wedding.

Now, I only have 94 more to cut and tie!
