Today, I am happy because I am posting two crafts that I made yesterday.
For the wine bottle, I followed the same steps as the plastic bottle https://pinaycountrycottage.wordpress.com/2017/02/17/re-purposed-plastic-bottle/
Materials for the jewellery box:
old jewellery box(small chest), white acrylic paint, small brush, white glue(mod podge process, printed paper(vintage rose), scissors
F I N I S H E D! Decoupage it is!
Better than the old one, right? I hope you liked what I made 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).
empty(softdrinks)bottle, printed papers, old buttons, broken rose earring, pearl bead, craft knife, scissors, white glue, small brush, stick glue, marker
- I cleaned the plastic bottle and removed the label.
- I marked the bottle as a gauge for cutting.
- 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!
How do you like my new project sweeties?
HELLO! Yes, it is me again, sweeties.
I really want to be productive while sitting home. I was clearing some unwanted stuffs and I saw these empty shoe box and shirt boxes(which I got from an online shop). I admit my crafting tools/stuffs are everywhere! I barely get time to nicely keep them because I am a working woman and I only get a little bit of time during my off days(and that is just once a week). This is also the reason why I am on and off in posting and showcasing my DIY ideas or how you may call it(lols). I am just waiting for something at this time that is why I am a free woman for couple and couple of days!! Yey!
Ok, so here it is now. I am presenting my new repurposed items where I can organize and stuff my crafting tools and the likes.
Empty boxes, printed papers(got the prints online ^_^ downloaded and copy pasted them in an A4 size paper then print!), lace for the accent, glue(I just used an ordinary white glue)a brush, glue stick, pencil for tracing and masking tape(optional).
YES, THIS IS ME 😛
- I traced the size of every corner of the boxes that needed to be covered then cut.
- I applied a good a mount of glue then pasted the paper on each part(I did not cover the inside because I am a big time lazy specimen!)
- You can think of how you want to mix match your printed papers or create a design out of them like what I did. Example is that music note prints. I cut some rose prints and pasted them on top of that. Then on the other box, I pasted two different prints and on the third box, I glued a piece of lace. It is up to you. BE CREATIVE!
- I poured an amount of glue with a sufficient part of water which I think I could apply for the whole three boxes. This will give the finish of a mod podge. Left to dry for sometime then PRESTO!
You can now start digging for old/empty shoe boxes or any box which you can make use of sweeties. I guarantee you, they are really pretty and functional. I am just beginning to stuff my things in them and I am so happy!
I hope you liked this post.
