This foggy weather is killing me! Ugh. I have problems with depression even when the sun is shining. Take away my Serotonin source and I just want to crawl into a hole.
Gazing out my dreary window yesterday I noticed some ugly (cool, though) that wasn't due to fog.
I can't throw away clippings that will grow...so I put them in a mason jar and let them do their thing. Their thing, while pretty cool, is kinda gross and scummy.
I could get a new jar that wasn't see-through, but the cat drinks out of this one and he's very picky and I cater to him.
Solution: Mod Podge, crochet lace, and a foam brush (and extra jars because you're having fun)
1) Apply said mod podge to jar with said foam brush.
2) Stick on some lace to cover--I found cotton crochet sticks better than nylon.
3) Let dry for 10 min or more
4) Apply more mod podge over lace, being careful not to pull lace out of shape
5 )Find more jars in the recycle bin and repeat process, because you have glue all over yourself already and you're on a roll. Fine'.
I put some LED tea lights in the plant-less jars and they look really pretty. The mod podge makes the glass look kinda frosty, which works really well with a candle or tea light. I'll take a pic tonight to show you.
Dreary weather again today, so I added some clip art spring. Maybe I'll become crazy enough to think they're real and cheer up!
Detail is a little better on the mantel
I think these lace jars would be GREAT for summer lanterns with the lacy pattern shining through
. MUST MOD PODGE MORE JARS...
Addie and I decided to do some Valentine's crafting last night. Almost done...more later!
