Welcome to a new series on Rental Revival, a crafting podcast called Unraveled. I'll be hosting this project podcast with my good friend who also happens to be named Megan. Together we will do whatever latest craft we can find on Pinterest and other blogs, and report back to you as we work. Sometimes, if the original tutorial needs more explanation, you'll find complementary photos and maybe some extra steps posted here on Rental Revival. Think of it like a tutorial appendix. Plus you get to hear us talking about life, pets, frustrations, and whatever else tickles our fancy. Because duh. Crafting is best when it is also somewhat of a therapy session.
You can listen to the first episode below! Eventually we will be posting this on iTunes, too. I hope you enjoy, and please comment to let us know what you think.
*The audio nerd in me apologizes for the sudden change in sound half way through. Technical difficulties. I blame my dog.
In this first episode of Unraveled, Megan and Megan follow a Coffee Filter Wreath tutorial from The Frugal Homemaker. This is a fantastic wreath that you can display in your home, and even spruce it up for different holidays and seasons!
Here is a photo of my wreath in its assembled form, sitting proudly on the mantle. I will be improving this area of the house over the next few weeks (pssst... Halloween!), so expect even more photos with my lovely wreath as the superstar.
One of the things we discuss in the podcast is using a pencil to help apply hot glue to the coffee filter, without burning yourself. Here is a photo of that process.
The Frugal Homemaker has great photos of the rest of the steps so you should have all of your questions answered there. We had a lot of fun with this project and I think you can tell from our recording. And from these photos. Oh, craft time.
Even better, we announce the supply list for our next episode of Unraveled... but we won't tell you what you will be making! Listen to the show for the secret supplies! Until next time.
P.S. You should probably follow me on Twitter so you can see funny videos like this.
