Pinecone Candle Holder

I wasn't going to craft today but after my daughter brought home some pinecones from the park, I had to make something with it! lol! Another decor for my soon to be Fall display!

pinecones, spray paint, the bottom of a soda can, glue gun and scissors

 Spray paint the pine cones

After it dries, cut the top of the pine cone and spray paint again. 
Cut the button of a soda can and trim around it.

 Glue the aluminium circle to the pine cone.

You are done!

Recycle - TP pencil/scissors holders

LOVE, LOVE this project!
If you follow my blog, you know by now that I love to recycle things!
 It is so much fun to make something out of nothing! I am reorganizing my craft room and trying to make my containers out of recycled items.
So, what you do with TP roll, cardboard box and scrap fabric?
You make this:

TP rolls, cardboard box, fabric and hot glue gun

Glue the fabric around your cardboard box.

Glue the fabric around you TP roll.

Glue the TP rolls to the box and you are done! How simple is that?

This is how it looks in my soon to be craft room! 
Take a sneak peak of what I have done so far and let me know what you thing! :)

Up-cycle - Fall vases made from glass bottles

Little by little, my house is starting to feel like Fall Season{even though was 112F today}! This project was very simple, fast and cheap to make. 
I purchased the flowers and scrapbook at Hobby Lobby for 50%off.

glass bottle
scrapbook paper and ribbons
silk flowers
glue and scissors

 Glue the scrapbook around the bottle{no need to take the bottle label off}and glue ribbon/rope around the neck of the bottle.

 I had a paper tag from a basket that I got at Goodwill and saved knowing that I could use for a project. Simply cut the scrapbook paper and glue it to the tag.

Add the flowers and you are done! COST: $14 for all 3 vases!!

Happy Fall!

Tutu Lamp {Sort of}

For a while now, I wanted to make a tutu lamp for my daughter's room. I didn't have anything in mind, just that my daughter wanted to be a purple tutu. I thought that was going to take a while until I could find the it item.
It all changed to a single trip to Goodwill yesterday! I spotted a glass globe and the Tutu lamp project came to my mind! :)

The pictures don't do justice to this lamp at all! It's so pretty when the lights are low!
My daughter loves it! My oldest daughter wants one for her room now! :)

          3 yard of tulle - bought at Walmart 99cents a yard
1 glass globe - Goodwill $1.99
scissors and hot glue
1 set of white lights - I used Christmas lights from last year
Cost: $5

cut the tulle in circles, no need to be exactly shape of each other.

 pinch the circle tulle in the middle, making a little flower shape

Glue the bottoms of the flower to the glass globe. Glue them fairly close together to keep their shapes.

At this point I wasn't too sure how this project was going to turn out...
 It looked liked a Clown wig! lol! But I didn't give up! :)

All done! 
Now just insert the lights inside the globe. I put a small plate under the tutu lamp on her bedside table. 
Daughter happy = mommy happy!
The end! :)
