Handmade Monday #340


Hi again folks, and a warm welcome to Handmade Monday. Handmade Monday is our weekly link up for handmade ideas, crafts and recipes. Creative bloggers can share their tutorials and projects and we can all check out all the ideas and get inspired.

The flowers and leaves I put in a heavy book to press were ready this week, just in time for the upcycling project I had planned for the Sustainable Craft Challenge. More on that on Tuesday - what a woman of mystery I am!! :-D

Let’s check out the features from last week’s Handmade Monday.

Confession time - I am a big Star Wars fan. It honestly doesn’t matter what they do with the various newer films and tv shows, I’m always gonna watch them with my nostalgia googles on and find something to love! I think it’s all down to the fact I was 7 when the first one came out and it was my first memorable cinema experiences. With that in mind I absolutely love these light sabre candy wrappers from DIY Party Mom.

Wendy from WM Design House has created these gorgeous faux pottery pumpkins from foam one. I had a bit of a “lost in translation” moment with these for a moment and had to do some googling. Foam here in the UK is just used to describe that soft squishy sheet stuff used in upholstery, these pumpkins are definitely not made of THAT! From the photos and my quick bit of research I think these pumpkins are made from what we call polystyrene.

Petra from Strickwahn (Knitting Madness) shared this beautiful crochet bag with full instructions.

Congratulations to you all There is a "YAY I was featured" button over here if you want to add one to your blog.

A like on social media, a comment or share is an easy way for us all to help to support one another so please do take a moment to visit some of the other projects linked up this week. It’s not mandatory to be able to join in here, there’s no easy way to check if you did but it costs nothing but a few minutes of your time and is just a nice thing to do!


The rules for Handmade Monday are very simple:

  • Did you make it? Yes - then yay! We'd love to see it

  • Add the link to a specific post, not your main blog url

  • You can link up to 3 posts each week but try to make sure it's not something that you've shared here before

  • Mingle - visit some other links - comment - share - be social


If you are not sure of anything more details can be found here.

At Handmade Monday the links are shown in a random order so it’ll look different each time you pop by.
