Over 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”
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.
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.
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.
