You all have heard me mention Pinterest. [So addictive/ addicted!] - Well, one of my boards is "Stuff To Make". I took a couple of ideas and this is what I did today:
Start with whatever bottles you like:
Get the paint colors you like. I was happy to find these paint jar samples - in the colors I love at Lowes. [Do you see that turquoise?;)]
Pour paint inside the bottles and twist around to cover the entire inside. Drain off excess back into the paint sample jar and then drain them on a piece of foil. Keep moving them around until most of the excess paint is drained out. Dry over night.
This is what the first batch I did looks like;
I LOVE these! I just think they are awesome.
What happened to the lids? Well, I am so glad you asked;
|Draw a circle around the lid|
|Center lid in circle draw a outline, cut slits from edge to drawn edge|
|Gluing lid on to paper, fold up and over lid|
|With my Nesties, I cut a circle to go inside to hold down the paper and give it a finished look.|
On to project 2. I have started following some DIY blogs and I keep seeing all these furniture remakes. Well, I have this chair [for my cat] outside on my patio.
As you can see -- terribly tweaked. Even the cat isn't interested in sleeping on this.
I had a light bulb moment - we had kept our old mattress pad and so, I cut it up into the size of the cover.
I re-stuffed the cushion cover, adjusted it a tad, and check it out;
Nice and comfy and most important, FLAT! :) I'm thinking my cat will love it!
I hope you enjoyed my 2 projects today. I sure had fun doing them. Back to cards tomorrow.
Thanks for stopping by~
