Here’s what you’ll need: 1. Measure the height and circumference of your jar, and cut strips of fabric to roughly fit (approx. 1cm wide – doesn’t have to be perfect). 2. In your small cup, pour in some glue and dilute it with a bit of water (about 1:2), mix well. It should be the consistency of slightly thicker water.. yes, I know I’m being vague but it shouldn’t make much difference to the end result. 3. Note: – I find that it’s ok to have fabric going above the top of your jar because it can be easily cut off after it’s dried. – I don’t mind the look of the overlapping lines of fabric once the candle is lit, but if you do try not to overlap the strips in the gluing process. ** Please only use only battery operated tea-lights (not real candles).

DIY; Double Bow Necklace I used to be so obsessed with decoden - for those of you who don't know, it's a trend from Japan, see here. Heck, I used to be so obsessed with lolita fashion. But now that I've mellowed out, I've only been enjoying only partially-embellished stuff - and since I've been inspired by a video I seen yesterday I wanted to create some decoden-inspired gear. So I made this double bow necklace out of polymer cay. Polymer clay Cutter Jump rings Jewelry pliers Clasp Chain Oven Pencil Pin It's so easy. You might want to lay out wax paper so the clay won't stick on your surface first. Pinch the sides like pictured above, and then pinch both sides together. Next take a small bit of clay, roll it out and flatten it like in the first picture. To make holes, it helps to put a pencil or any barrel shaped object inside - it's used to hold the shape. Bake your clay according to the directions on the package. I hope you liked it.

Reduce, Reuse, Recycle: Repeat - Mason Jars Yes, they are everywhere. Yes, I have posted on them before. And yes, I am still smitten! I should note...I'm a little obsessed with how the matte black came out and have more outside drying as I type this. Then, in my Pinterest crazed obsession, I found this little DIY image. This led me to trying my own version with a milk jar, fabric marker and glue gun.... She's not perfect, but I love that about her. For all you DIYers with questions on how to or the materials used for this project...I did a follow up post that can be found here.

Gold confetti dish tutorial. I've had this gold leaf pen kit for a while, just waiting for the perfect application. And I think these sweet little bowls and dishes are just right! I have bowls and trays scattered all over my apartment to catch my earrings and necklaces that I seem to shed as soon as I walk through the front door. Place a necklace or pair of earrings in one, tie it up with cellophane, and you have a pretty handmade gift! Gold Leaf Pen Kit with gold leaf sheets. Wash your ceramic pieces well, and remove any stickers or labels. Follow the instructions on the package to get the gold leaf adhesive pen flowing. Starting on one side of outside of the bowl, simply dab the pen across the top rim, concentrating the dots at the top of the rim and staggering them out towards the bottom. Lay some paper down on your workspace for easy clean-up. Using a soft brush (I used a large watercolor brush), sweep it over your gold design, exfoliating the excess gold leaf. That's it!
