Crafting: Is It Worth It


This glitter pumpkin is made of plastic.                                               This glitter pumpkin is real.

It cost $7.97 and took about 5 minutes to buy.                              It cost about $65 and took 4 hours to make.


If you have a craft room and supplies and love finding projects on Pinterest, then crafting something yourself might be worth it.  As for Liza, she had to buy paints and brushes and glue and tape.  She had to find some scissors that the children hadn’t ruined.  It took her 30 minutes to find the ribbon she liked and she went to 3 different stores just trying to buy black thumb tacks.

And in the end, the overwhelming majority said they thought the plastic pumpkin was prettier.  Read the comments here.
