I thought I would share my first foray into crafting. The first thing I thought I would do is with my shells and some small bottles that I've picked up here and there, since seeing them on blog land and falling in love ( or maybe obsession ) with glass bottles. This is super easy to do. Grab your shells ( I collect most of mine on Sanibel Island ), some sand and a bottle and then fill.
I then took a dremmel (?) and made a hole in the cork and inserted the shell and a little glue to keep it in place.
This is a super easy craft that anyone can do. I think they are really cute as well. But then I love just about anything with shells!
I added ribbon to the top of the paper and then painted the jar and lid with some glitter craft paint in silver. I added some stickers and lightly went over it with the glitter paint to give it some sparkle.
I like my second effort much better.
That glitter paint really sparkles on the lid. My next try was on some Starbucks bottles.
I painted them with spray paint.
Added some stickers and some jewels and called it done.
I think they would make a couple of cute little vases for some fresh daisies or other small flowers.
Then of course I had to try my hand at the "french perfume" bottles that I've seen everywhere.
I painted the lid and the bottle with the silver glitter paint. Got a graphic from the graphics fairy and modge podged it onto the bottle. added some ribbon and there you go.
I have another bottle and a grouping of bottles that I've done that I will share another time. I know I have a long way to go before I will be anywhere as good as you guys but it sure is fun trying. It really is a stress reliever and fun, whether the results are good or not....Hope I haven't bored you too much. Thanks for stopping by!!
