Fairy Jar Lanterns - group 3







I'm finally getting around to sharing the fairy jars / lanterns I made last month! These are the final three of nine that I made. I think they'll be donated to a local charity resale shop.

Reusing candle jars, covered with wrinkled tissue paper and Mod Podge.
I added felt to the bottoms of them on the outside to protect surfaces they sit on.
Various goodies from my craft supply stash to embellish them. Some could be customized (the purple on has a blank tag for a name or special word).

This is something that I've not seen in quite some time:
a walking stick !

Because I am repurposing several items on these jars, I am entering (the top one using the book pages) into the current challenge at Shopping Our Stash - Upcycle

Cross Stitch Ornaments



Earlier this year we went to a church fundraiser yard sale.
I bought a grab bag of various crafty items,
most of which I could not use so I donated them.
However, there were some things I could work with.
These little cross stitch pieces were unfinished,
part of a mini treat bag kit. 
I decided to turn them into ornaments instead of 
finishing off the mini treat bags.






I cut some quick stik mounting board to fit the images.








I ran heavy duty double stick tape around the edges of the back,
pulling the fabric around and adhering in place.
I added little dabs of hot glue to the corners to hold them well.









A little trim was hot glued in place, gold cord hangers
then white chipboard cut to fit and glued over it all
to finish it off. 








I'm entering my project in the current
Animals challenge at Use Your Stuff
since there is a bear on one:)

Thanks for looking.
