Happy Birthday Fourth East Craft Co.!!

Oh my gosh! I can not believe it has been 2 years since I took a leap of faith and decided to start up craft night again! Happy birthday Fourth East Craft Co! Craft nights have since evolved into craft day because that seems to work better for all of us! (Especially the chillins- they are not little devils because it’s not past their bedtime)

A little history about me and “craft night”:
My first “craft night” was actually held August 22, 2008. Crazy right?! At this time I only had 1 baby. I was a new stay at home Mom and had the desire to do something during nap times. I had the idea to make some cute decorations and offer others help making some for themselves. I took flyers around the neighborhood and emailed invites to everyone I knew. The first “craft night” was a success and I couldn’t wait for the next one! I found a new passion to do while my new baby boy napped.

I continued to host “craft night” pretty much monthly, or as often as I could, until June 2010. My last “craft night” was June 11, 2010. I still loved “craft night” but I had a huge challenge….I no longer had my work shop (aka garage). I didn’t have a work shop until November 2017, which is when the desire and drive for “craft night” began burning.

If you have time to kill, you can check out some of the old things I did and read the story as to why I no longer had a work shop. It’s all there. I was kinda fun to walk down memory lane. Check it out at:

Anyway, back to the here and now! Join us for our second birthday celebration!

Items are listed a little differently this time. They are first listed in themes, then by price.

#1. Birthday cake stand $25

It wouldn’t be a birthday party without birthday cake! …and you can’t have cake without a stand, right?! I LOVE how it turned out! It’s so much better than I imagined.

You scrape off the chippy paint and clean up the surface real good.

Winter items:

#2. Baby it’s cold outside bucket $10

Baby it IS cold outside! When it’s cold out, there’s nothing I like more than a nice cup of hot cocoa! Even sometimes in the warmer months, if I’m cold, I dream about a cup of hot cocoa.
Or if it’s snowy outside, we often times get ice. This bucket is an attractive way to store your salt for your walkway, stairs, and sidewalks. This cute little bucket measures 7″ in diameter and 4.5″ tall. The uses for this bucket are endless! This is for just the bucket ONLY. The props are just for the photo.

This totally awesome 3-D snowflake is like nothing you’ve ever seen! It will definitely be your favorite winter decoration by far. It adds a unique rustic flair to your home and looks nice on a shelf, table, mantle, or even hung on the wall or door (it is pretty big and heavy, it will bang against the door when it opens and closes–so I would maybe display it on a less used door if that is the route you want to go) This rustic looking snowflake measures approx. 15×15″ and is 6″ thick.

You paint, sand, and stain the snowflake, then coat it with a little glitter spray to finish it off and you’re done.

String art is so fun! There is no way to ruin it….I don’t think. I had so much fun making this sign. I actually had to do it twice because the beginning of my string didn’t hold. Anyway, I love how it turned out and I really it was so fun to make. You can display it indoors or outside, the string will hold up in the weather. Looks great on the porch, near a fireplace, hung on the wall, or the post. It is available either way, you choose. Measures approx 18×18″. Nails are already in place.
