Spotlight Friday: bangles

Last week I had a little bit of PC hiccups, that is why there was no Spotlight. We are under a heatwave here since about 14 days. And my PC didn’t like it. So when it got to hot it just froze up. It was taking me forever to click on something. So I decided to just skip last weeks Spotlight.

We are still sweating away here. If we have something to do outside of the house, it has to be done before 9 or 10 am otherwise it is just scorching. Even the pool is too hot to jump in. So we close all our blinds and turn on all the fans in the house we can find and keep ourselves busy with crafts, books and movies or having friends over and play some board games. Right now Monopoly is the hit.

One of the crafts we tried out this week was making bangles from plastic bottles.  Our first hurdle was to find some plastic bottles in this house. It so just happened that the ACV (Apple cider vinegar) bottle was close to empty. So we used it, it wasn’t all flat like you see in this video.

But we didn’t let it stop us, just extra pattern for our bracelet. So I cut out 4 bangles out of one bottle. I made on for my friend. Sorry, didn’t get the chance to make any pictures.

What kind of crafts do you do when you are trying to escape the heat?
