Up cycled plastic soap bottle


Supply List

I used my hand soap bottle for this project, but you can use any bottle, plastic or glass

Because it was plastic I added some napkin paper to the bottle using Liquid Patina.....I just used the backing of the napkin and I wanted the wrinkles so this was going to work out well.

See the video for full instructions

Once the bottle was dry I painted White Swan and Crinoline DIY Paint in a random  application to create depth and let that dry.

I cut an oval shape from a drop cloth and frayed the edges.Then hot glued it to the bottle. I then layered a variety of items to create texture and interest.

I  tied Retro Pink Lace, Retro Ivory Lace and a variety of materials around the neck of the bottle, you can watch the video below to see how I created it.

This is an easy craft you can do with the items in your home.....I hope this  inspired you to reuse containers to make beautiful decor!

Decoupage IKEA Planters


Supply List

I got the planters from IKEA but I am sure you can check your local dollar store as well

I used the Bird Watching Napkin to decoupage onto the planters. Since they are white, I didn't need to paint the planters before applying the napkin. 

I used Liquid Patina to decoupage the napkin to the can see the full tutorial in the video below. 

I used Liquid Patina because it's not as thick & gluey as modpodge....Modpodge tends to rip the napkin and Liquid Patina has a true matt finish.

After the planters were dry, I took some White Swan and dry brushed it. 

I then took Golden Rule Wax and highlighted the planters, as well as the plants.

I hope this inspires you to create a creative planter just in time for spring.
