Looking for a place to store your supplies? You have come to the right place!!!! Make this handy Chunky Yarn Basket to store all your supplies.They are great for storing anything from hand towels.....toys....your crochet supplies and most of your other utilities.

You could also use this as a Gift basket or with Easter coming up , make them in pretty colors and use them as Easter Basket.





And yes.... I finally got to use my 12mm Crochet Hook.I have used Super Chunky yarn to make this basket.There are just so many reasons to love chunky yarns. They are soft, cozy and they work up pretty quickly .

Materials Used:-
  • Super Chunky Yarn
  • 12 mm Crochet Hook

Start with a Magic Circle.


Round 1:-

6 Single Crochet in the Circle.



Slip Stitch on to the first Single Crochet and pull the yarn end to close the magic circle.







Round 2:-

2 Single Crochet in each stitch around.(12)




Slip stitch to end the round.



Round 3:-

1 Single Crochet , 2 Single crochet in the next stitch.
Repeat *(1SC,2SC)* all around.(18)
Slip Stitch to end the round.



Round 4:-

1 Single Crochet, 1 Single Crochet, 2 Single crochet in the next stitch.
Repeat *(1SC,1SC,2SC)* all around.(24)
Slip Stitch to end the round.





Round 5:-

1 Single Crochet , 1 Single Crochet, 1 Single Crochet , 2 Single Crochet in the next stitch.

Repeat*(1SC,1SC,1SC,2SC)* all around(30)
Slip Stitch to end the round.



This base measures around 9 inches. I stopped the increase with this round.




If you wish to make your basket bigger then you can continue with the increases untill you reach the desired size.


Check out my post on How to Make a Flat Single Crochet Circle.



Round 6:-

This round we will work only in the back loops.

For working on back loops, instead of inserting your hook underneath the entire stitch, insert the hook in centre of the stitch, and exit underneath the back loop.

Make back loop single crochet in all stitches around.

This would create the ridged edge and form the bottom edge of the basket.

Slip stitch to end the round.





Round 7:-

1 Single Crochet in each stitch around.

Slip Stitch to end the round.



Repeat Round 7 untill you reach the height you need.





There you go...... your basket is ready.....use it to store your Yarn Stash.......or your other utilities......!!!!




In my case, my kiddo was ready with her toys to fill up the basket!!!!!!

Do you love burning beautiful and colorful candles?....Nothing sets a warm glow in a room better than a candle....and what if I say they are wonderfully easy and fun to make them yourself ? It is pretty much exciting craft and not at all difficult.

The transparent nature of the Gel candle makes it even more exciting to work with.It is also fun to work with the colors for these candles. You can play around with the colors  and create your own candles for specific holidays. It is just that you have to take care to use colors that are wax soluble.

Materials Used:-
  • Mini Glass Jars 
  • Gel Wax
  • Candle Wick
  • Tooth Pick
  • Candle Dye Color
  • Artificial Pearls and Sequins
  • Colored Sand or Aquarium sand

I get all my candle making supplies online.


I found these Mini Glass Jars online. I absolutely find them so cute.


Prepare the jars by cleaning them properly so that there are no dust particles.



And these are the colors I used. It is absolutely essential that you use colors that are made for candles. 

You can also use essential oils to make scented candles.



These are pre-tabbed wicks. Pre-tabbed candle wicks are ready to use, making them easy to use.


These are colored aquarium sand.



Start by fixing the wicks into the jars. The best way to do this is to just dip the metal end into the melted wax and place it inside the jar. Just hold it in place for few minutes untill the wax cools down. This works like a charm.

I tried using glue but my candles turned out foggy.



Get your decorative sequins and pearls ready.( I forgot to take pic of pearls)



Use double boiler to melt the wax. You can also choose to melt it in oven. Directly heating it over the stove top sometimes makes it catch flames.So, better be safe, right!!!!

Take two containers. One for pouring water and the other for melting the wax.Pour water in the bottom pan,and put the wax pieces in another container and put it on bottom pan.Start heating.Keep your burner on the lowest temperature so that it doesn't burn up your wax.




Once the wax is melted completely, take it off the gas , and immediately add the liquid color.

Take care not to add too much. Even 2 to 3 drops are sufficient to get the desired color.

At this point, you can also use essential oil of your liking to make scented candles.


Gently pour them into the containers.

Never pour the wax directly into the container. Always use a support system to pour it. Just hold a metal spoon and pour the wax over it into the jars.



Now add the decorative objects.

Use tooth pick to hold the wick in place which may sway once you pour the wax.



If by any chance you spill the wax, which I did here while pouring, don't worry, you can just wipe it off or once it is cooled , you can easily remove it with your fingers.




Play around with different colors and decorative objects. Let your creativity take a stride!!!

I used glitter powder here.



Red......!!!!!

Blue...!!!!!

Light Green....!!!!

 Green..!!!! 

Here I used Two colors .....First layer....Yellow....then followed by Orange...!!!!



Sky Blue....!!!!

Yellow....!!!! 

Let them cool down at room temperature.

Don't touch them untill they are completely set. This would ensure lesser number of bubbles.




I had some colored tea light holders .

I used them in the same way mentioned above.

Oh... I love the color of these holders.



There you go....!!!!

Light them up and enjoy the ambiance they create!!!

Making your own candles is always a rewarding process.These days, gel candles are gaining huge popularity because they burn for a much longer time than wax candles and are so much easy to make and because of their transparent nature, they are just awesome to look at.I love working with Gel Candles.They make wonderful little decorations for around your home and are a great option for gifting, be it any occasion. 


The transparent nature of gel also allows you to show off your creativity.You can embed small and pretty , but non- flammable objects like glass beads.....sea shells.....crystals....jewels...pearls....sand....charms....just about anything that catches your fantasy. You can as well make themed gel candles by using your objects accordingly. 

Here I am sharing the process for making a Ocean Gel Candle.Glassware is the best option for making these gel candle.Trust me, making gel candles is a fun filled activity. Once you start , there's gonna be no stopping for your creativity!!!!


Materials Used:-
Gel Wax
Wicks
Sea Shells
Tooth Pick
Decorative Beads and Pearls
Votive Jars



This is the Gel Wax I used for my candles. They just look like jelly and are fun to play with. I had a tough time getting back my wax from my kiddo, who chose to make cup cakes out of these in her Role Play Oven Set.
   
 
Take small pieces of the wax.




Use double boiler to melt the wax. You can also choose to melt it in oven. Directly heating it over the stove top sometimes makes it catch flames.So, better be safe, right!!!!

Take two containers. One for pouring water and the other for melting the wax.Pour water in the bottom pan,and put the wax pieces in another container and put it on bottom pan.Start heating.Keep your burner on the lowest temperature so that it doesn't burn up your wax.




Meanwhile get your supplies ready.

I have used artificial beads ...pearls...and sea shells. 

I got all my candle supplies online.







Once everything is ready, start by sticking the candle wicks to the bottom of the votive jars.

I have seen most of the people using Glue Gun to stick the wicks.But that didn't work out with me. I tried glue gun and when I poured the wax and let it set, they turned foggy.


Then, what's the other way out???? Simply dip the wick in melted wax and put it in the votive and hold it just for few minutes untill the wax hardens. This works best!!!




Now, arrange the decorative objects.



Use toothpicks to hold the wicks in place which may sway once you pour the wax.


Gently pour the wax into the votive.


When you pour the wax directly....you may end up with bubbles!!! Bubbles ....bubbles everywhere......!!! ....what do you do...???? Here is one more trick I learnt.



Never pour the wax directly into the container. Always use a support system to pour it. In this case, I used a metal spoon as a support. Just hold the spoon and pour the wax over it  onto the votive.

See.....!!! Lesser number of bubbles compared to earlier one. O yes.... you may end with some stray bubbles ....but then they are just inevitable. You are making a Ocean Candle , so even the bubbles would add to the elements.


Let them cool down at room temperature.



Trim the wicks if needed.


They look pretty...don't they!!!!


You can also personalize your candles by adding fragrance to make scented candles. Use wax based colors to make pretty colored candles. I made this one using Blue Wax Based color to give it that Ocean feel.

Just add the color once you take the wax off the gas.


Simple to make ...aren't they!!!

Materials Used:-
  • Fur Yarn (Red, Green, White)
  • Crochet Hook
  • Snowflake Wooden Button
  • Yarn Needle
I love working with Fur yarn. You can use any yarn of your choice. 



 

Start with a slip knot and chain 15.


Single Crochet in the second chain from the hook.
Continue with single crochets in all the following stitches. 



In the last stitch, make 3 single crochets.





Continue working on the opposite side of the chain stitches.Make single crochets in all the stitches on the opposite side.



Once you reach the last stitch,make 3 single crochets and slip stitch to the first stitch to end the round.

Now, you will be working in continuous rounds.
Keep making single crochets all around .
Alternate between Red and Green yarn.
Use 5 rounds of Red yarn and 5 rounds of Green yarn.











You can customize the size as you wish.
I alternated 3 rounds of red and 3 rounds of green.



Once you reach the required height, use white Yarn to make the edging.
1 Single crochet all around with white yarn.


I used a snowflake button for that Christmas look. With Yarn Needle , sew the button on top of the front side.



Join the red yarn and make the button loop by making 10 chain stitches and slip stitch to the starting stitch. 



You can change the number of chain stitches according to the size of the button you are using. Just measure and make chain stitches to fit around the button.

Don't make too many stitches as it would make the loop loose. 





Weave off the yarn ends.

That's all!!!! Your Gift is ready!!!!



Fill it up with Chocolates and gift them to your loved ones!!!!!
