In amongst the millions of things I haven't been doing lately, I haven't got back into doing Kat's TicTocc challenges since she restarted them after the summer. [If you don't know what I'm talking about, pop over and visit the fabulously talented Kat Wright at Wright Story, all will become clear.] But when this week's challenge (#19) arrived in my in-box, I thought, yup, I can do that. So here we are.... Ta-da! Turn empty glass cosmetics jars into tealight holders!
First take one clean, empty jar, peel off the labels and wipe the whole thing with white spirit to remove lingering adhesive.
Then decorate it with relief paste and glass paint. You need a steady hand, which I don't have...
and here's some I made earlier... aren't they cute?
For my next trick, I want to work out a way to turn the tons of bits of broken china I keep finding in the garden into pendants.
I have the ideas, but I'm very short on know-how. The best suggestion I've come across is to glue fabric and wire to the underside of each piece, but if anyone has any advice, I'd love to hear it!
