Some people say I drink too much. Those people are wrong. At least I’m not decorating with boxed wine, assholes. I previously showed you some wine bottle decor, but I got bored. What else is new?
I finally settled on neon pink and gold as my official colors and the wine labels were really cramping my style. So naturally I threw some paint and glitter on them.
To remove labels:
- Fill sink with hot water and let bottle soak for 30 minutes
- Remove from water and peel off label
- Scrub off what you can using soap and a sponge
- If any glue remains, use Goo-Gone or a similar product
Perfect for stacking arm candy!
For this one (ok it’s a glass milk container), I poured paint inside the bottle and used a long paint brush to cover the sides. Then I used gold sharpie on the outside for the quote. By the way, W.S. is Shakespeare you peasant.
So yeah. This is what my end table looks like now. Pretty sure I can squeeze two more bottles on there.
I like to make shit. Especially anything involving sparkles and feathers. I’ve been wanting to make some feather garland for a while now and was too lazy to actually do it. But then I finally got it together and crafted it.
Here’s what you need:
- feathers (I got mine from Michael’s for super cheap)
- string (I used jute, but you can use whatever you want)
- acrylic paint color of choice (I chose gold as you can see, next time I’m doing neon pink)
- paintbrush (duh)
- a fuckton of glitter (that’s the scientific measuring term)
- a bowl
- some newspapers or magazines so you don’t make a mess
Step 5: Gently sprinkle some glitter on the wet paint like you’re fucking Tinkerbell and proceed to get it everywhere. Step 6: Lay feathers across a bowl or some other flat, raised surface to dry. Put some magazines or newspapers under it so the paint doesn’t drip on whatever surface you’re painting on.
You can make your garland as long or short as you want. I used 7 feathers because it’s my lucky number.
Craft away, cupcakes!
The easiest DIYs are the kind that transform one thing into another. Chances are you have an old necklace lying around from eighth grade that you’ve held onto for some reason or another. Said reason is neither here nor there. Sometimes we just can’t part ways with things. This is called separation anxiety. So I had this wonderfully tacky necklace from The Icing or Claire’s or whatever and I really liked the idea of it but not so much the style. I decided it would make a dainty bracelet, and I hacked it up.
What you need:
-an old necklace (preferable with links)
-clasp (or use the one from the necklace)
I took the clasp off using my pliers and removed some of the little gold charms, then I took a portion of the chain and separated it from the rest.
Then I attached the clasp back on and put a jump ring on the opposite end.
What can you make out of your jewelry box?
I didn’t want to leave you all without something for the day. Sometimes doing the littlest thing can make a big difference. For instance, I made over my light switch. Magic lives on and all that #harrypotter.
Would y’all like to see these in the upcoming store?
Remember how I shouldn’t go into Target alone? This also applies to craft stores.
I found this glitter paint. It’s like modge podge with glitter. Lots of glitter. Like enough to coat the floor of a strip club.
Clearly I needed this and needed to paint all of the jars in my bathroom.
This is with one coat. SO MUCH GLITTER.
I also started painting inspirational messages for myself.
