Something that wouldn't cost too much $$, and yet be somewhat original in ideas.
Look at these wonderful little earthy stones!
Love them. Very organic looking.
Original idea by Margaret Oomen, with a free tutorial provided by Purl Bee.
They call them Little Urchin Crochet Covered Sea Stones.
Takes me back to my childhood of being raised near the ocean, and looking for shells along the beach.
*The Purl Bee is out of New York. They are one of my favorite sites for creative new ideas. You can find them on my sidebar.
Do you think Mr. Cactus will see me as odd for crocheting rocks and placing them around the house?
