Light Bulb Vases

DSC_0102Over the holidays I wanted to make my friend a present but didn’t know what to get her, so I thought I could try to make her something. I have always like light bulb crafts so I found this and just  by doing a quick search you will find a bunch of cool stuff to do with a hollowed out light bulb. Since the tutorial I linked too was so good. I’ll keep my description super short! Continue reading “Light Bulb Vases”

Fabric Cork Boards

It’s been too long since my last post, but late is better than never! A little while ago, I got a new job and wanted some decorations for my office. I found these cute pin boards on pinterest and thought they would be perfect!

So  I got all the supplies necessary; fabric, cork board coasters (pot and cup), scissors, glue, and magnets.

Wine Cork Board!

This past week I decided I wanted to try out this whole cork board made with wine corks thing. I saw a few different kinds while perusing pinterest but I liked this tall, thin one because I have a lot of thin walls that it would fit on; and because it looked like the easiest ones that required the least corks.

So I gathered the materials, corks (lots depending on what you use for backing), backing of some sort (the tutorial I found said a meterstick, but those are pricey so I found some cheap balsa wood from Michaels). For tools all you need is a knife to cut the corks in half and glue. If you have a bagel cutter, that might make this project a bit quicker. I found cutting all of the corks to be a bit tough and got a blister by the end of it.

Cut Glass Bottles With String!

Ok, so like many people on pinterest I have seen the pins about cutting a glass bottle with string and nail polish and I wanted to try it out to see how easy this really is. I gathered all of the supplies; a bottle, string, nail polish remover, lighter and a sink of cold water. You may recognize this bottle from my matte nail polish post, and as you can tell I was very satisfied with this brand of wine 🙂 I did see a youtube video for how to do this but couldn’t find the link again, but it was super helpful, so I thought I would share my process.
