#DIY Recycled Tray into a Shabby Chic Holder

Hi, sweeties!

I’ve got another re-purposed/re-cycled project. This shabby chic holder is made of two old plastic trays and a vase.

You can check how I made this at my Youtube Channel. Instruction is in English, sweeties ^_^.


I hope you will go and check it sweeties. Enjoy!





Re-purposed Wine Bottle & Jewellery Box

Hello, sweeties!

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

How to:

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.




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).


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!


How do you like my new project sweeties?





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.




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/


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.




HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY Sweeties! I hope you liked this idea.








#DIY Mod Podge Shoe/Shirt Boxes(repurposed)

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).



How to:

  1. I traced the size of every corner of the boxes that needed to be covered then cut.
  2. 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!)
  3. 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!
  4. 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.









It’s quite a long while that I didn’t post since I became pretty occupied(sorry). Anyways, I want to share a little work that I made while back.

BIRYANI- an Indian dish made with highly seasoned rice and meat, fish, or vegetables.

It’s not only the food which I adore, it’s also the Pot where they serve it. I don’t want to throw them off. There are so many ways that you can make them as containers 🙂 I can only get them if the food is take away or for home delivery. I guess, I’ve got 6 of them already(because we don’t always go for home delivery). I decided to give them a little bit of a good look rather than plain.

I just:

  1. Painted.
  2. Made an improvised tool for the designing(like this sponge stuck into a plastic straw).
  3. PRESTO!



Now I can fill them with what ever I decide to fill :).

How do you like it?

Love ❤



#Repurposed Tin Cans(again)


Last time, I used fabric to cover those tin cans and turned them into pretty containers. This time, I used papers.

How I  made them is the same step as I did with the fabric.

1. I cut the paper according to the size of the tin(the body of the tin).

2. Glued the cut paper into the tin.

3. I used these decorative tape(I bought from this Japanese store name, DAISO)for the lid since it’s difficult to wrap it with paper.

4. Presto!

Note: These tins are merely for display only. You can’t stuff anything inside because once you close it with the lid, opening it again would spoil the paper/cover.

I made another one, to make a company ;).


Have you tried repurposing anything yet?

Love ❤
