Re-purposed Plastic Bottle

Hello sweeties!

Since I have decided to really learn about MAKE-UP, I need to have a container wherein I can put some make-up brushes. Instead of buying, I re-purposed an empty plastic bottle and turned it into a charming brush container!

I don’t have a white paint so I just made use of my printed papers(like a mod podge).

Materials:

empty(softdrinks)bottle, printed papers, old buttons, broken rose earring, pearl bead, craft knife, scissors, white glue, small brush, stick glue, marker

How to:

  1. I cleaned the plastic bottle and removed the label.
  2. I marked the bottle as a gauge for cutting.
  3. I cut it with a craft knife

4. I traced first from that part(to cover)of the bottle which has a curve until the down edge.

5. I cut the paper then on their edges(up and down) I made small cuttings so when i start gluing to the bottle, it can somehow follow the shape especially the curvy edge.

Initially, there will be wrinkles from the paper but they will somehow go after awhile once you cover them up with glue.

6. Then, I covered the remaining part of the bottle with the same process as number 5.

7. I made use of that broken rose earring as an accent then added a pearl bead and red  and blue buttons.

F I N I S H E D!

Re-purposed Tin Can(Valentine’s Day gift)

Hi, sweeties!

It is 5 days away to Valentine’s day! Excited? Not me :'(. I am single and I am happy. Anyways, I want to share what I made last night as a Valentine’s gift to a friend. Last time, she mentioned that she wants something that she can stuff her precious things. Since, I am broke, I thought of gifting her that but in a most pocket friendly way :P.

There was this old tin can which was just lying in my cupboard(perfume packaging from Body Shop). I thought of making it into something useful so I can gift it to her. So, I came up with this (I guess) pretty vintage inspired re-purposed tin can.

 

20170208_225840-01-01

Materials:

tin can, kraft paper(you can use any printed paper also depending on the design that you want), paper napkins, music note printed paper, fabric lace, pearl beads, white glue, thin brush, stick glue, pencil, scissors, needle and thread, any printed word that you want, I used “HAPPINESS”, jute string and button

How to:

After covering the lid, from top to side around, I started accentuating it.

On how I made the spiral rose, you can refer here http://tallystreasury.com/2011/05/paper-orchids-and-spiralled-paper-roses/

16508881_10210812283639145_2802582109509590870_n

I used a paper napkin(which I got from a restaurant 😛 ^_^)in making the spiralled paper rose then I glued a pearl bead in the center of it. I made three of them.

Then I started to work on the lid by gluing halfway center across a fabric lace then placed the three flowers beside it. I cut a butterfly and a feather from the music note printed paper. Also her initial which is “M” with a heart on it(stitched around) I added a jute string on the feather’s stem and a button on top of it. Then I cut the word Happiness.

PRESTO!

#DIY Mobile Pouch(repurposing)

Hello, sweeties!

It was a busy holiday that’s why I was not able to share any posts at all. Sorry :(. At the moment, I am at home hatching egg so I thought of making something(lol). One of my necklaces got spoiled. I felt bad because I got it from China and I love it(though I did not use it much)! It has this knitted flower pendant and red pearl for its chain. So, to make use of them, I thought of accentuating them into my mobile pouch. Brilliant!

16195965_10210684991576923_6708455865662792191_n

Materials:

Felt cloth, lace, glue stick, needle and thread(for stitching the pouch together), button and the knitted flower and pearl beads

16174857_10210684990056885_8563750402409027402_n

How to:

  1. Traced the size of my mobile into the back of the felt cloth(half inch wider for the three side since the opening is not included in stitching) then mark a bit outside as a guide to where to start the half inch as I stitch along then cut.

Note: Felt cloth should be two pieces of the same size

2.  After cutting, I stitched the felt together.

3.  Glued the beads just below the opening edge followed by the lace and the flower in        one corner below.

4. Stitched a button in the backside and a loop of lace(stitched from inside of the felt cloth)so I can close the opening for my mobile not to slip out then PRESTO!
