We Aced It! Shop your local Ace Hardware Store for some cool craft supplies!

My sis EcoHeidi Borchers and I were recently given the coolest creative challenge. We were asked to shop exclusively at our local Ace Hardware store to create projects with Aleene’s Tacky Glues. What fun we had going up and down the aisles and dreaming up some fun and do-able ideas. We invite you to check out some of the projects we created and then head on over to your local neighborhood store and Ace it! Be sure to look for the expanded Aleene’s glue display now available at your local Ace Hardware. (If you don’t see an Aleene’s glue you want, be sure to ask the store manager and tell them EcoHeidi and Tiffany sent you!
