Paper Ruffles

What a great version of  
paper ruffles! 
Goodness there are some really great ideas out there. :)

This is made using 2 plastic tablecloths.....really 2 plastic tablecloths!
So inexpensive and again making a great impact.  
I really do love this idea and am hoping to use it sometime soon!


 Cut a 20″ and 15″ strip from each one. Lay the 15″ on top of the 20″ and sew a gathering stitch (strait stitch on longest length) strait down the middle. Repeat for other strips. Gently pull the top thread only to gather all the way down both runners and tie threads. Use the gathering threads to tie the two runners together.

Cement Candles

I'm loving this 
clever idea 
found at
This is a very inexpensive way to create 
simple yet unique 
candle holders.
A large bag of cement sells for about $3 at your local hardware store and one bag could make an estimated 100 candles.
