Hi everyone - hope you're having a great weekend. I've managed to get crafty stuff done.
This was made as part of a challenge - One Word Wonder challenge on Facebook. The word was recycle.
I had an empty beetroot jar - so decided to try & make something with it after removing the label.
I found some Christmas napkins, so decided to make a tealight holder.
I peeled the napkin apart as I only wanted the layer with the design on it. I roughly tore around the parts I wanted.
Then I used some Americana Decou-Page medium, which is a glue, sealer & finish all in one.
I applied this to areas & carefully placed the layer of napkin where I wanted it to go. Continued with this until most of the area of the jar was covered.
I was just left with the top part of the jar to cover. I wondered if some gilding flakes would work as I thought they would add a bit of bling.
I applied Flitter glue to the top & covered in Colourful Thoughts Gilding Flakes in variegated copper, then went over any places not covered with big silver gilding flakes.
I placed a rechargeable tealight inside the jar & was really pleased with how it looked.
I will be using it during the Christmas festivities!
