Spray Painted Glass Jars and Bottles I have a real problem throwing away perfectly good glass jars and bottles. To me they are little craft gems waiting for me to transform them. With Mother’s Day and Teacher Appreciation coming up, I decided to turn some of our recycled bottles into cute gifts for Mom and my sons’ teachers. Before you begin this project, I want to warn you to be flexible. The painting step has the potential to get messed up, but that doesn’t mean the project has to be a failure. Materials: Glass Bottles or JarsSpray PaintRubber GlovesPlastic BagsMasking or Painter’s TapeDrop Cloth, Tarp or PlasticFoam StickersX-acto KnifePencilEmbellishments: beads, transfer rub-ons, wire, fabric, ribbon, raffia, lace, or whatever you have lying aroundHot Glue Gun & Glue Sticks Instructions: Clean out the bottles/jars and let them dry completely. Select some foam stickers to use as a mask on your bottle. I chose a heart and then cut an “M” into a circle foam sticker using an X-acto knife. Wait a few minutes and repeat.

Color Tinted Glass Jars Calling all spaghetti sauce jars, jelly & jam jars, pickle jars and more! For some reason, I am always saving our glass jars-to the point where I have a ridiculous collection. I know that some of them will be used as bug collecting jars this summer for the boys, but I still have way too many and yet I’m always telling myself I’ll find a useful or fun way to reuse them. I was searching around on Pinterest the other week and I came across this post on how to color tint jars into the classic blue look of vintage mason jars. Perfect! It was definitely an experiment and this tutorial isn’t specific down to the number of drops of food coloring-just try it and play around with whatever color you have in mind. What You’ll Need: - empty glass jars – mixing bowls – newspaper – paper towels – wax paper – mod podge – food coloring – stir stick/small spoon – oven Step 1 – Mix Mod Podge, water and food coloring in a small bowl. Step 2 – prep a baking sheet or pan by lining it with newpaper. Ta-da!

oklava :D Another Modge Podge Upcycle Here I am again, Modge Podging another purse! Since my initial wallet upcycle tutorial, I have been scouring the thrift stores and garage sales for another wallet to decoupage. I found this little envelope-style purse at a garage sale last Sunday. The design was simple enough, no tricky angles or curved edges. A perfect candidate for upcycling! The original purse had a gold belt-like detail along the edge of the flap. Before I could get out the Modge Podge, I removed the magnetic clasp from the front. I got out my little needle nose pliers, opened up the jump rings, and removed the chain handle as well. I used the same decoupage techniques I used in my previous wallet tutorial with a few little exceptions. I'm wishing I did that to the metal frame on the wallet I did. Second, I didn't feel like messing with removing and replacing the grommet, so I just didn't cover it up. The last thing I did differently was to tuck the edge of the front under the folded edge of the back fabric.

Fox Hollow Cottage: Glass Bottle and Tin Can Repurpose Tin Cans & Tequila Bottles Repurposing and Reusing {shabby style!} After I got drunk the other night… just Kidding!! hehehe Actually, I have been saving a bag full of tins cans for months now and I knew I needed to get my tail in gear and actually DO something with them. RedEggBoutique on Etsy So, I raided my jewelry drawer of all the sparkly stuff I love, but let’s face it… never wear, grabbed my trusting glue gun, some scrap ribbon and got busy! Sparkly stuff like this ponytail/pin. I have never worn this. I used my needle nose pliers and yanked that stuff right off! I did a little mixology to get the *aqua shade I was lusting after Then, I grabbed my trusty Purdy paint brush and slipped some on my can and bottle, then worked on a little something else while they dried. Note: *I’m sure you can use any of the new glass approved craft paints, or even some Maison Blanche paint, as it grabs the glass really well too! When they were good and dry, I used a little steal wool to distress them. Comments
