How to Make Hot Glue Wax Seals

I want to make a bunch of favors that look like they are sealed with sealing wax. Unfortunately, real sealing wax isn’t sturdy enough to hold up if you use it to seal a letter or invitation you want to mail. I doubt it will hold up for my project.

The same goes for trying to use crayons as sealing wax or sealing wax made for hot glue guns. All great (and fairly expensive) for hand dispatched letters and invitations but not for something I want to last because they are all made from some sort of wax that easily cracks.

Hot glue pretty much lasts forever and is a less expensive way to make the three hundred faux wax seals I need and by using colored Mod Melts, the hot glue looks like sealing wax but is much sturdier. My hot glue gun wax seals will go through the US mail without being damaged if I chose.

Handmade Wedding Gift Idea: Mr and Mrs Pillowcases

I gave a few hints about the handmade embroidered wedding gift I was making on my Instagram (follow @condoblues please?) and Condo Blues Facebook page (click here to follow and get my latest updates!) Now that the Bride and Groom are happily Mr. and Mrs. I can spill the beans.

 If you are looking for a thoughtful handmade wedding gift idea, that’s fairly simple and quick to make then this hand embroidered personalize pillowcase idea is for you!

 In all honesty, I would embroider a set for myself if they came in King size.
 
I wanted a project I could work on during our evening Cuddle with Lacey on the Sofa Time. Embroidery fits the bill and I wanted a project to get back in the swing before I start a massive costume embroidery project.

How to Make a Champagne Cork Cage Chair

Husband opened a bottle of champagne and promptly popped the cork in a little basket we keep on the kitchen counter for wine cork upcycling emergencies.

He looked the wire cork cage over and issued me a challenge, "Can you come up with something to do with this? The recycling won't take it and it seems a shame to throw it away."

I sat down to thinkidy think on it.

Sit down?

There's my idea!



I made the champagne cork cage into a little bistro chair.
