I think we need to come up with better name? What do you think? In fact we don’t really have a name?
Craft Club got started last February and was inspired from the pinterest craze. At the first craft night we made the T-Shirt scarves – Super cute! If you haven’t tried making one they are super easy and even make cute gifts. Here are a few links on how to make the T-Shirt scarves

Christmas Craft Club….
This month we met on Nov. 30th so we kicked off the Christmas season early with some JOY! We made modge podge paper mache letters and some of us decorate with Christmas paper and others made their letters neutral.
Did I mention we invited our daughters to join us and they got to paint their initials? It was a fun evening filled with lots of laughs, good food, and a finished Christmas project! Oh and the girls put on a holiday show at the end? They had a great time while the Mom’s crafted away … Happy Times 😉
[DIY} Paper Mache Modge Podge Letter Tutorial
Step 1 – you will need to trace your letter on the scrapbook paper of your choice. You will need to do this for each letter. After you cut out the letters set these aside you will need the cut out letters in step 4.
Step 2: – paint all the sides of the letter except the front – DO NOT Paint the part you are putting the scrapbook paper on leave as is. Let the paint dry….
Step 3: Once the paint is dry and you are happy you can move onto Step 4. If you need to put on a second coat of paint – do this now and after the paint dries completely move onto step 4
Step 4: Take another foam brush and modge podge the front of the letter. (the part you did not paint.) Once you have an even coat of modge podge – not to thick but enough that covers the front place your letter cut out on the front. Let this set for a about 5 min
step5: once your paper is glued to the front you will want to modge podge over the top of the paper to secure it in place
Step 6: – let dry – once dried you can add your embellishments!
1) paper mache letters of your choice ( I bought mine at Joann’s)
2) scrapbook paper – of course you choice!
3) Modge Podge
4) Paint and foam brushes
5) any embellishments – paper flowers, ribbon, pom poms, – pretty much any scrapbook embellishment will work!
