Spare Buttons!!

Does anyone else have a serious issue keeping track of extra buttons that come with clothes?
I know I do!

YOU NEED
-notecard or cardstock
-sharpie
-buttons
-tape

DIRECTIONS
this is simple enough…
First, write the word buttons on the paper in fancy letters. Then, tape on the baggies with the buttons! So simple and cute! I hung mine on the inside of my closet door. Enjoy!

Glitter mason jars!

I LOVE THESE!!

YOU NEED
-mason jar (or anything glass)
-glitter
-mod podge (here’s my tutorial)
– tin foil

DIRECTIONS
First, fill the jar about 1/4 of the way full with mod podge. Then pour in some glitter. If you want solid glitter i recommend using fine glitter and a lot of it. If you want more of an ombré look, use chunky glitter and not too much. Then twist and turn until all sides are covered. When done, wrap the top in tin foil and flip over. Beware of leaking. This takes about two days to dry. (sorry!)

I got my mason jars at the dollar tree for $1 each. You can also get them at micheals in different sizes.

92 Days of Art: Day 5

5. What if animals could draw? Draw their artwork.*

*I think this is stupid, and my mind went blank thinking about this. The whole point of this list was to give me ideas for art and, again, my mind was blank. I heard the song “Wagon Wheel” the other day and got this idea. I call it: WAGON WHEEL!

This is from no list

Here’s my drawing

For this I used charcoal, compressed for the background and vine for the rest. This was on sketching paper.

Wine Bottle: Week 4

More like wine bottle PIZZAZZ! (Pizzaz?) this is awesome.
YOU NEED
-washi tape
-tulle
-wine bottle
– packing tape
DIRECTIONS
First, wrap the washi tape around the bottle. Then wrap a thin layer of tulle around the bottle, starting at the top. When you get to the end tape it to the bottom of the bottle. Then I cut 2 small squares of tulle and stuffed them into the opening. They look so pizzazzey! Enjoy!
