It’s that time of year, again. I must get back to school and lesson plans. So how much can we cram in a weekend?
Spent time on the beach with George and Connor . . .
Attended an outdoor soireé featuring Alison Glass with her handcrafted fabrics and quilt sample ideas . . .
And made a tiki bar beer bottle opener for my friends. This was a very easy and quick project.
Supplies: 1″ x 6″ pine wood, drill and screws, drink bottle opener, 4 bottle caps, staple gun and staples, paint and brushes
How: Cut wood into 1) 22″ length for back, 2) 4.5″pieces for sides, 1) 4.5″ x 4.5″ piece for bottom and 1) 4.5″ x 5.5″ piece for the front.
Attach front to sides with screws. Drill holes into the bottom for drainage. Then, screw through the back into each of the side pieces. Screw on bottom piece (from bottom-side up).
Add decoration – there are a ton of design ideas online. I painted a clock face and attached bottle caps using a staple gun. Lastly, attach the bottle opener (ours came from Total Wine).
Remember, it’s always 5 o’clock somewhere ; ) Have a good week! – – Joanne
