From a jar to a vase

I’ve dressed up these jar and yogurt pots and planted inside a lentils for Easter natural decoration.

Now the jar is a vase. I like its colors. The chestnut blossom liked them too. πŸ™‚ Together the blossom and the jar are a joyful, pretty spot on the gray urban environment. πŸ™‚

You can take a look at the decorated bottles, that I posted some days before.

With this publication I’m linking to “Dress up a jar” at City Crafter Chalange Blog.

Have a lot of fun, dears and thank you for stopping here!


Happy bottles

The name of this project is quite easy to be understood when you simply see it. πŸ™‚

These bottles are so happy to stay alive and undertake a new adventures instead to go to the trash. πŸ™‚ A simple and important reason for anyone to be happy. Don’t you thing?

The story of the project in brief – I had a client who ordered 6 presents, with the condition that the pieces are similar, but in the same time differ to each other. I had the liberty to decide theΒ  type of pieces and to design the decoration as I like it. (Wish to everybody such a clients πŸ˜€ )

Materials for the project are – 6 empty glass bottles (250ml), paper napkins and glue.

With this post I’ll participate, for the first time in my life, in a contest at Running with scissors.

Wish me luck and happy crafting to you!

Aroma candles

These ones are the first that I made from the rest (trash) pieces of used candles.

I used new wicks, some plastic bottles and mugs for the molds, two kitchen pots (one big for the bain-marie and one smaller to melt the wax).

For the multicolored candles it is important to be patient and to wait each wax layer to become cold before to cast the next one. I’ve done a mixture not only of the colors, but of the aromas too.
