Friday’s favs…Galvanized pails, plants, and shell topped bottles…

 

When I saw the April issue of Better Homes and Gardens it gave me a cute, simple, easy idea!

See the cute little plant in the galvanized bucket?

They have similar little buckets in the dollar section at Target,

and they have similar little plants for $2.47 at Home Depot.

I decided I needed to stencil a number on my little dollar bucket.

Cute!

My second little project was inspired by these little shell topped bottles I’ve seen around online.

Then I saw them at TJ Maxx for between $6-$8.

But free is even better!

I just dug a hole into the top of a cork and filled the hole with hot glue inserting the tip of a shell I had into the hole.

Then I decided to add a vintage French label I downloaded and printed free from the Graphics Fairy.

I simply glued it onto the bottle with Elmer’s glue painted onto the back of the label, then painted glue over the top of the label as well.

The bottle I used had a recessed place on the glass for a label, so it fit perfectly!

I’m lovin’ it!

  6. So creative, I love the bottles with the altered art stoppers, I've collected a few but have yet to try my hand at making my own.

    Being I have so many Artistic projects in various stages of construction already I might just head over to the closest TJ Maxx! *winks* Thats not a bad price actually.
