Cheers!

Good evening everyone.  I hope you've had a good day.

Just a quick post today to  show you what we did at our craft club last night.

Wendy showed us how to make these fun wine bottle waistcoats.

We each made two in different colours using glitter fun foam.  My other one was green and gold.   I've not come across the glitter fun foam before.

Not a very good photo but it was taken quickly when I got home and in bad light.

We all enjoyed crafting together.

Such a cute way to present a wine gift all dressed up! I have been trying to do your pretty whitewash technique, but so far, not done any that look very well! I'll keep trying. TFS & Hugs (our Hobby Lobby store stocks the glitter felt, not sure if I've seen the glitter fun foam)

What a fun accompaniment to a bottle this sweet waistcoat is Barb, and I love the glittery foam you have used, which I have never seen either. It would be great to cut sentiments using it too. x
