Cranky Crafter

I don’t know about you but I hate the words craft, crafty, or crafter. Luckily, sites like are showcasing craft as a hip art form.

I recently discovered a tool called the Fiskars Crank Hand Drill that instantly changed the way I create home accessories. The product claims it drills a clean hole in paper, plastic and even metal. It is under $20 so I thought I would give it a whirl.

I dusted off an old metal candelabra, which never had enough holes to hang a stylish cluster of crystals, and put the hand drill to work. I was shocked how easily and perfectly the drill pierced the metal. I made perfect holes all around my candelabra and was able to hang the vintage crystals my mother had given me.

My next project is to transform a Lucite jewelry box with six drawers with new drawer pulls.  In the meantime, I’m enjoying my candelabra all over again

Give it a whirl in your home. Enjoy!
