Ive seen a couple of blogs claiming crafters only post the good. Not the bad or the ugly so I am going to change that.
Here is what a Styrofoam cross looks like after you buy what you think is twine and turns out to be skinny hemp so you pull it off after hot gluing. Then you try to Mod Podge scrapbook paper on it and it doesn't stick so you peel that off. Oh wait I'm not done. Notice the little pieces of moss that I tried to glue on and didn't like that look either so it got scraped off as well!
Crafting is not always pretty.
