UPDATE: This previously ran on August the 30th but we thought we’d bring it back for a little DIY you can do this Sunday. Go out for a stroll and collect some small twigs and get DIY bus.

UPDATE: This post originally ran February 22, 2012 but lately I have become re-enamored with the idea of apothecary bottle necklaces!
