Searching Saturday: Mirror, Mirror, On the Wall

So because of all that is going on in my life-- Ingenious Friday and Searching Saturday are combined this week!!!!
What do you do with that old boring mirror?
So this week's Searching Saturday is all about mirrors!
Mirrors use to be only for gazing at your reflections, but now, they can be used for so much more.

Happy Searching!

Cana's Future Craft of the Week: Paper Mache Yarn Bowls

So here is my future craft of the week:  Paper Mache Yarn Bowls.

Combine ½ cup flour and 2 cups cold water in a bowl.

Boil 2 cups of water in a sauce pan and add the flour and cold water mixture.

Bring to a boil again.

Remove from heat and add 3 tablespoons of sugar.

Let cool. The paste will thicken as it cools.
Wrap saran wrap around a bowl (or you can just use a balloon).  Dip the yarn in the paper mache mixture and then wrap it around the bowl.  Let dry for 24 hours before remove the yarn bowl from the bowl.
