Dont throw your bottles out! BLING THEM!

To me, glass bottles are so beautiful, I love them old, new, clear, colored, frosted, big, small.. I just love them!

I decided to make some festive decor with some glass pop bottles I had leftover from Thanksgiving.

Image

Pretty adorable huh?!

First I just took the glass bottles and covered them with fabric of my choice. The sparkley one is actually from an old purse I had! I just used hot glue gun to attach the fabric to the bottles

Image

Image

til they were all covered..

Image

then I added ribbon and bling where ever I thought it needed it..

Image

I knew since I had 3 bottles I wanted them to spell JOY so I used thickers to add the lettering to them

Image

and who could forget the BLING from The Buckle Boutique that makes anything more beautiful!

Image

Image

These glass bottles will bring my fireplace mantle lots of JOY for many years to come!!! I hope you will re-make your glass bottles into something beautiful too!!! And don’t forget to pick up your bling from THE BUCKLE BOUTIQUE!!!

Happy craftin`- NIKI the scrap princess

Sock Snowman… with bling!

I know what your thinking, sock snowman? yeah, that’s what I said! LOL

Image

so here’s what you need to make this cute lil guy:

Image

1. a white sock and a sock to make hat, any print you would like, get creative!

2. String

3.  Some fluff

4. Googly eyes

5. Some sort of fabric to make a scarf, I used an old wrap around sash to a sweater

6. I bet you can guess what I’m gunna say next.. BLING! Which you can buy HERE from The Buckle Boutique

7. Something to make the bottom, I used a pickle jar lid, you could also use cardboard cut into a circle

8. Hot glue gun

I stuffed my snow man with one ball of fluff and tied a string under it, then stuffed a bigger ball of fluff inside under that and stuffed my jar lid under that and glue it to the inside, wrapping the edge of the sock around it on the bottom

Image

Image

I took this weird toe sock that had no match to it and made a hat out of it, I basically just cut and hand sewed it and tied some knots at the top to create the tip fluff balls on the hat

Image

 

Image

I then took the scarf material and wrapped it around just like you would a scarf on yourself!

Image

Image

 

I added some googley eyes, but felt like they blended in with the white sock so I added a black circle of cardstock just slightly bigger then the googly eyes to give it some pop!

Image

 

Oh and the BLING of course!!! This stuff is so easy to work with and as you can see, even just a TINY bit of it can take any project from zero to HERO! The Buckle Boutique has AMAZING prices and this stuff can be used on anything! Go CHECK IT OUT!

Image

 

From there, I just added a nose I made out of felt and a string I glued on for the mouth and some pom poms for the buttons on him! There’s so many other things you could do! you could use button eyes, you could give him clothes (if you are a sewer which I’m definetly  NOT! lol)  so many possibilities! Have fun with it! And here he is! SOCK SNOWMAN! How fun!
