Chopstick Challenge - Collab with Zen at Hapiness Wherever

I'm excited to share with you my latest craftiness because I have teamed up with Zen from 'Hapiness Wherever' to take on the Chopstick Challenge. It's a challenge that puts our creativity to the test!

We were tasked with making something from chopsticks and we had no idea what creative mischief the other person was up to.

Once I've cleared the craft bits and bobs from my dining tables, this will be a lovely pop of colour in the middle.

And this DIY is so easy, you will still have the energy to take a stupid selfie!
