Today, at Mashia Crafts we are thankful for our friends. We are thankful for those people that are there in times of trouble and sorrow but also times of happiness and joy. People that take time out of their busy lives to make us smile, lift us up on a bad day and cheer for us in our victories.
We'd like to challenge you today to share the picture above with those people in your life, tell them how much you appreciate them and love them. Take a moment out of your day to give back to those who are always there for you. And, if you want to give them even more, make this super simple tutorial and give them to that special person in your life! <3
You will need:
1 Mini Jumbo Wooden Stick
4 Metal beads
Crop-A-Dile (not sure if a regular hole puncher would work)
Wood Burner (or permanent marker)
Using your exacto knife, cut the rounded edges off your wooden stick and then cut split the stick in half (each wooden stick should be about 2in wide.
Using your Cro-A-Dile, punch a hole on each end of your stick as shown above. I used the 1/8' hole punch. Then, using a pencil write out the words as you want them to be burned. Don't worry about making mistakes now :)
With your woodburner, go over each letter carefully. Please don't burn yourself! <3
Insert your hemp cord through one of the holes, tie a knot, insert your bead and tie another knot. Do the same for the other side and you are done :)
Now, keep one and give one to that special person in your life :)
