New Westminster Public Library Crafternoon

Last year I got to craft with a new community partner - the lovely peeps at New Westminster Public Library. We set up a free afternoon of festive upcycling for adults on December 17. The question was - what to upcycle?! Well we went with a DIY wreath using upcycled wire hangers and burlap sacs. Perfect!

I lucked out and received a big donation of wire hangers (thanks to my Capilano University coworkers!) and tons of burlap sacs from Mojo Coffee in North Vancouver. I was ready!

We had 20+ participants upcycle wire hangers and burlap into festive wreaths.

There was a wide variety of wreaths created and so many awesome crafty peeps! I even had left over stars from a previous Crafternoon that came in handy.

One participant added bling by using cookie cutters and buttons.

We even had time for another quick DIY - burlap rossettes!

Everyone had a different take on the project.

One of the completed projects.

This sweet couple had a craft date with me. They rocked it!

Here are their projects - the guy's wreath used a repurposed project from my crafty book.

Happy crafters! Loved my New Westminster Public Library peeps!

Great use of the stars, burlap and funky ribbon.

Burlap, a bit of ribbon and a big red star = Xmas wreath awesomeness!

And here's my new BFF Sharanya who beamed with sparkly vibes. She's a keeper!

Big thanks to Tammie and Erin at New Westminster Public Library for inviting me to craft with them! Here's to the beginnings of a kick butt partnership.

And thanks to all the participants! You guys rocked it!

I even got gifties! Xmas ornaments for my place. So darn sweet!

Stay tuned - I'll be crafting again in 2017 with New Westminster Public Library. Yay!
