WARNING-PICTURE HEAVY TUTORIAL-ISH!!
We have officially made it to Spring!!
And although it may not feel totally "Spring-y", you get a renewed
hope of warmer weather to come!!
Being in the Spring mood helped give me the idea for a project!
I was going for the whole "snow globe" effect, sans water....
Here's what I came up with!!
And here's how I did this!
First of all- eat something from a big jar! (thinking this was spaghetti
sauce, or something along those lines.)
Clean your jar of all food, paper, glue, etc.
I actually painted the outside and inside of my lid white
in case any of it peeked through.
Then you need to color!!
I grabbed my Gwen In Bloom from Some Odd Girl!
(love that set!)
Once you have your images colored, you need to gather
a serious amount of hot glue and your gun!!
(I think I went through two sticks!)
Now grab yourself some toothpicks!
I taped/glue dotted the toothpicks to the backs of my images.
I left the rather blunt end to be glued to my lid base.
LOTS OF GLUE, HOT, HOT, GLUE!
I made sure that I gave my images enough height to clear
the narrow neck portion of the bottle.
One picture I neglected to take, was of the felt I cut to cover the
inside of the lid, and my mountains of glue!!
I also glued down some iridescent Easter grass too.
You can see the inside bottom a little here.
I made two patterned paper flowers with brads in
the center to glue down on top of the "grass".
I also added another stick behind her with a flag and a cute
flair badge for a little personality!
I finished it up with some ribbon, a bow, and a small flower charm.
Hope I have gotten your Spring-time mojo going!!
This was a fun project, and it gave me ideas for many others!
Thanks for stopping by!!
