Wait! Don’t toss your garbage away! There are lots of used household items you could reuse and turn into beautiful decorative objects! You don’t even have to open your wallet. Just look around and spill all your used goods on your craft table. You’re about to turn trash into treasure! Follow these simple tutorials and give a new creative use to those items you used to call ‘trash’.
Mason Jar Vase
-A Mason Jar
-glassware (preferably candle stick)
Clean glassware. Use the adhesive to join the glassware and the mason jar as you prefer. Let it rest. Stick the trims on the jar to give that final decorative touch with tacky adhesive. Now you can use these as pots, vases to keep your brushes, or even fill them up with candy.
Wine Bottle Flower Vase
-Empty colored glass bottles
-Paper to protect the work surface
Size your pictures according to the shape and size of the bottle. We suggest you make a draft on paper before adhering in on the bottle.
Print the final pictures on organza paper but don’t remove the backing! Cut the silhouette of the picture first. Once the shape fits the bottle, tear the backing off and place the picture against the bottle to make sure the color matches it, or that the picture’s theme stands out with the bottle.
Lay your pictures face down in a well ventilated area and carefully spray the adhesive in an even fashion covering the entire surface of the picture until your supply is finished. Then place it on the bottle.
Save money and a trip to the store for wrapping and make your own colorful can for a creative approach to a special package.
-Tacky tape runner
-Water and measuring cups
Find a zip bag and pour ¼ of the Cool2Cast plaster into it. Add 1/8 cup of water, zip the bag and shake for 60 seconds.
Cut off a corner of the bag and gently pour the content of the mix onto the lid. Tap the edge of the lid to make sure the plaster settles. Let dry for an hour. It will be fully ready over night.
Add a coat of alcohol links to the lid. Next, apply the alphabet stamps. Let it dry.
DIY Paper planter
-1 long spool of newspaper yarn
-Hot glue gun
Wrap the entire container all around, from top to bottom in the newspaper yarn, layer by layer. Be very careful to work by sections, gluing one section at a time, and sticking each layer right next to the other so as not leaves any gaps. Give the final touches with a few embellishments, sealed with the acrylic sealer and voila!
Decoupaged Canister Set
-Orange spray paint
-Gray ink pad
-Scrap book paper sheets
-Mod Podge Acrlyic Sealer
Remove any kind of original décor from canisters with sand paper. Wrap the surface with the scrap paper, and adhere with Mod Podge. Spray the lids of the canisters with the orange spray paint. The color of your spray paint may vary, depending on the color pattern of your scrap paper. Remove air bubbles and let dry. Now you’ve got a brand new decorative canister set and you didn’t even have to pay a single dime!
