Pinterest ~ Times Two

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. 
You need:
     50% glue (I got Elmer's on clearance)
     50% water
     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).
