Directions for Hat Bag

-Cut the straps from your plastic tote bag
-Glue the cut ends of the straps to your hat’s brim
-Glue half of the velcro strip to the top arch of the strap
-Glue the other half of the velcro strip to the inside of the hat so that the strap lays flat when you put it on

Directions for Fork Chandelier

-Use the galvanized wire to attach the wire candle holder to the bottom of the wire hanging basket. Set aside.
-Use hot glue to attach twist ties to the top of the forks. When it is cool, use your finger to bend the twist tie so it becomes “hangable”
-Hang the forks around the basket in even rows
-Be careful that when you hang it, it is in a place that is not going to be knocked. For extra hold, you can reinforce the forks with a little hot glue.

Directions for Photo Holder

-Glue the twine on either end of the garden fence so that it hangs loosely
-Put clips across the twine - this will be where you hang your photos!

Directions for Wall Sconces

-Cut the string ends of the mop and hold them together in a group
-Place one string across the center of your group, and double the rest of the strings over it
-Take a second loose string and tie it around the center of your doubled over strings so that it creates a loop of strings around the first individual string. This creates your tassel
