Crafty Idea #1: Painted Knitting Needles

Pretty up your bamboo or wooden knitting needles with a fresh coat of nail polish! You can use up what you have on hand or head to the drug store for some inexpensive nail lacquers in an array of punchy colours.

TIPS FOR PRO KNITTING NEEDLE PAINTING:
*use masking tape to protect the part of the knitting needle you don't want painted
*start at the bottom and work toward the top
* apply two (at least) generous coats
* let paint dry between coats
* if you make a mistake there's always nail polish remover!
* paint polka dots with a toothpick or dotting tool
~Enjoy your knitting needles!
