Terracotta Pot Cakestand DIY
Of course your tailgating treats have to taste yummy, but they also need to be displayed in an elegant and organized fashion. Many Grovers pay lots of money for their food stands and silver platters, but there are also many budget friendly DIY projects you can use. These terra cotta clay pot food stands are one of my favorites! They are very easy to make, extremely durable, and they work great for all sorts of appetizers and treats! There are many different ways to make these "cake stands". Joshua Trent's tutorial is one way to make them. (Of course you'll probably want to use Ole Miss blue and red color instead of the sea blue Joshua uses!) Using clay pots to makes these stands is very versatile. You can buy different size pots and plates, and vary them by height as well. I used Gorilla Glue (can be found at Home Depot or Wal-Mart) instead of the caulking. The Gorilla Glue takes longer to dry, but it's cheaper and can be used for many other projects. I also painted my stands with basic acrylic paint (Wal-Mart) instead of spray paint. I did not put a clear coat on my stands, instead a bought some Ole Miss fabric and sewed a quick little scarf to lay over the base of the stand and place the food onto. Here you can see some of my stands in my Grove tent: Here's another fun Ole Miss project you can make using clay pots! I haven't tried this one yet, but it's definitely on my list!
Spray paint tent - Get a Dollar Store garment bag and use it as a spray tent to keep overspray from getting everywhere. #spray_paint #crafts
Use Dollar Store garment bag for a spray tent... This is seriously genius. Maybe jj would let me use spray paint again! ;D
New spray-painting “tent” - Crafty Nest Use a Dollar Store garment bag for a spray tent... This is seriously genius.
Use Dollar Store garment bag for a spray tent... laid down a sheet of cardboard to create a spray-painting tent. Works like a charm. The tent blocks the wind while spraying and keeps what’s inside dust free while it dries. Plus it keeps the overspray from floating everywhere. The trick: Zip the flaps closed after each coat and wait about 30 minutes while the paint dries and the dust settles.

DIY- How to make Photo Pillows~ great gift idea too! tutorial ~ http://thecraftsdept.marthastewart.com/2012/01/photo-pillows.html
About 10 years ago I made my mother photo pillows for Christmas. It was before she had grandchildren, so I made them with some vintage photos from her childhood. Those pillows have definitely seen better days and this Thanksgiving she mentioned how much she loved them but that they were getting "a little ratty". The originals were made with iron-on transfers and I thought this time I would try something different. I had been wanting to experiment with Jaquard's line of inkjet fabrics - so

Image transfer product: Lesley Riley's Transfer Artist paper or TAP.
image transfer with Transfer Artist Paper (TAP)
A couple of months ago at the Luckett's Spring Market, there was one question that was asked of me over and over... ..."How did you get the bee crest image to the back of your chairs?!" I shared my technique with all who asked, but have also received some emails regarding these and my desk chair... ...so I thought I share it with all of you! The secret is Lesley Riley's Transfer Artist Paper or TAP that allows you to transfer images to almost any surface—fabric, paper, wood, glass, canvas, metal, mica, and more. I'm somewhat addicted to the stuff after trying many other image transfer products with ho-hum results. The biggest difference that I've found (besides being able to use on multiple surfaces) is that it's a nice, soft pliable transfer onto fabric...not crusty and plastic feeling. It also washes well over and over. That's huge for me! The downside is that it's relatively expensive compared to other image transfer products...you definitely have to weigh the cost with the project and luckily, you can fill a whole sheet with small images for those smaller projects.... In addition, you can easily print a detailed color image out to use as a transfer. As you can see, I've used mainly black and white prints because I've been getting used to the product, but I've made some tote bags with color transfers and a set of napkins... Some egg napkins that coordinate with my bird nest platesAlthough, the package of TAP comes with pretty detailed instructions on how to use, I thought I'd give you a quick run-down. First, find the image you'd like to use, making sure you reverse the image before printing out on an ink jet printer (especially for words). Then, cut out the image leaving a bit of space at the edges... Then it's as easy as applying a hot, dry iron over the print-out. It also helps to use a board or a hard surface underneath so the image transfers evenly.... Peel off the paper while it's still warm and there you have it... I haven't experimented much with transferring onto other surfaces yet, but I did try canvas and wood. They are far from perfect, but I suspect that I need to turn down the iron a bit on those surfaces, since painted wood can bubble a bit. I can't wait to master these techniques and try some other projects...It seems like the options are endless for using TAP. Note: all images seen here can be found for free at The Graphics Fairy or purchased for a minimal amount here.

We've said this before, but one of the best things about Indie Craft Parade is getting to know the awesome people in the maker community. These connections can provide new friendships, networking connections, business opportunities, and they always supply creative inspiration. For this guest post, we called in one of the amazing connections we've made---the ever lovely Emily Jeffords. We asked Emily to supply a project for us...and she did something awesome: DIY CHALKBOARD LETTERING. This is an amazing idea. Who doesn't love beautifully hand lettered designs? And now you can do it yourself! So without further ado, take it away, Emily! ** ** ** ** ** ** ** ** ** ** ** ** ** ** ** ** ** ** ** ** ** ** ** ** ** ** ** ** ** ** ** ** ** ** ** ** ** ** ** Hello! I’m so happy to be guest blogging for one of my favorite groups, Indie Craft Parade! I’m sure you have noticed the growing chalkboard lettering craze sweeping America and Europe right now. It’s pretty awesome. Well, it’s awesome if you have freakishly amazing handwriting (which I don’t!) I can barely write an address on an envelope with grace. Sadly, I’m going to have to leave the hand-lettering to the likes of Dana Tanamachi and Molly Jaques. The good news: those of us who aren’t Dana Tanamachi can still have amazing chalkboards with freakishly amazing typography and precision (we just need a teensy bit of help from the computer…. Shhh.) Oh, and lefties, you’re in luck. Because you don’t have to do one bit of writing, you can work from right to left! You should have seen me working on this baby upside down, sideways, and backwards! This chalkboard DIY is so stylish, so trendy, and so, so easy. Things I leaned during this DIY: 1. Chalkboard spray paint is a total joke. Just use flat black paint and mix in a tiny bit of clear gesso or unsanded tile grout. I didn’t try the paint can variety. Maybe it’s amazing? 2. Really, really, really cover the paper with chalk. It will save you so much time in the long run. 3. You might want to do a few words with larger text… not going to lie, this took quite a while because my text was so small (and I’m a bit of a perfectionist.) 4. A small paintbrush + water is like a magic eraser. I hope this inspires you to have fun creating something amazing and original.
