Did you know March is National Craft Month?

There is a whole month dedicated to crafting, How Amazing is that!  What better way to celebrate than to post my very first craft blog.

Beaded Egg shape

The Beaded Egg

Everything to make it came in the kit, [Star-flake beads, Faceted Beads, Wire, Safety Pins] and it was fairly easy to make using the instructions provided, as long as you have a pliers and wire cutter tool.  Actually this was the first time I have ever done a safety pin/wire type craft. It was not difficult at all. It was pretty fun, and my kids got to help with having the next bead ready for me to put it on the wire.  My six year old was able to practice his pattern making skills.  At the end of making this , you can insert a strand of mini lights to make it sparkle.
