Spruced up Soap & Lotion holder

Hi folks!

I wanted to hop on here real quick and post some pics of very simple & quick project I did using ONLY supplies I had on-hand. Cost $0! I love when I can do this type of project.

I decided that the fall soap & lotion I never end up using all of needed to be used up and spruced up! Hey, I made a rhyme, lol.

I’ll post the pics and supplies I used below. One thing that is note worthy: never spray paint silicone items, they use a ton of paint and crack the second you pick them up 😦

Enjoy!

Supplies:

Metal holder

Almond color Rustoleum spray paint

Fall leaves (these are from old garland I had laying around)

Cool, old button from my stash

Jute twine

Hot Glue

Coated paper doily (Michaels 4-5 years ago?)

DIY $1 Store Napkin Rings

Hi folks and Happy Fall! Or as most are saying “Happy Pumpkin Spice Season” 🙂 So, I decided the napkin rings I had on the table were a bit too “spring” inspired. They were the right color but… Ya.

In keeping with tradition of viewing craft inspired videos while gaining inspiration, I decided to do my own napkin rings with $1 store materials. I shopped at the 99¢ only store and spent $2.00 and had materials leftover! All other materials and tools, I already had on-hand.

#1 – Step one

Decide you want to change out your current napkin rings.

#8 – Step eight

Place book rings in crevice of leaf where glue is and use pliers to pinch down (this part was tricky because of the ring joint) and allow to dry

#9 – Step nineImage result for surprised emoji face

Realize the Gorilla glue you used was not the right adhesive choice and defer to your trusted hot glue gun AND reinforce with super glue in the crevices

#10 – Step ten

Jazz them up with some glitter glue and allow to dry over night (I’ll wait to show you the finished product)…

#11 – Step eleven

Find uses for leftover supplies Pic 1: berry basket from Michaels I scored for $1.60, added washi tape and bent one of the leaves over the middle Pic 2: I actually didn’t mind the look of the candle holder after most leaves were removed, so I used it as-is (candle is from Pier 1 many, many years ago
