It's no secret that I'm a Pinterest junkie. I put Miss Kellie to bed and click away until I can no longer keep my eyes open. So today I let go of the mouse and did the dishes ~gasp~ and got to some craftin'!!
First up - I needed Mod Podge. I saw this tutorial about a month ago and was running low on my official Mod Podge (which is about $6 a bottle!!) - so I figured I give it a go.
50% glue (I got Elmer's on clearance)
jar with a top (a dollar store find)
I dumped the glue in the jar, filled the glue bottle with water and added that - stirred and done!! It looks just like Mod Podge and only cost me $2, and made about 14 oz.!!!! Killer deal - and I used it to attach my label and it works great!!
Now that I had newly mixed Mod Podge I was onto my second Pinterest project of the night. I have been seeing scrabble tiles all over Pinterest and on this link is a tutorial to show you how to make scrabble tile into a pendant. I have a scrabble game that was gifted to me about 12 years ago, which was still new in the plastic. I must say, anyone that knows me knows I couldn't spell my way out of a wet paper bag (without spell check that is) - so not a great gift for me.
This was super easy and I LOVE them - now I just need to figure out what to do with them. I took a stab at a necklace with the supplies I have on hand, but can't wait to take a tile with me to the craft store and find out exactly what need (want).
