Tutorial: Cracked Glass Stones for Crafting

This project is a family favorite. My kids *love* to “crack” glass stones with me. They don’t even make anything with them most of the time, they just enjoy watching the glass crack and then admiring their handiwork. I like to paint the stones, glitter them, set them in bezels, make magnets, and all kinds of other things. But let me …

Make Glass Mosaic Christmas Trees

I love the glass gems at the dollar store and am always on the look out for great ways to use them. Sarah from Alderberry Hill transformed some plain styrofoam into these stunning trees with little more than paint and these gems. Make yours in staggered tiers like Sarah or keep it simple and use this same technique to make a straight cone tree. Make a …

Three Ideas for Recycled Craft Storage

If your New Year’s resolution this year is to get organized, you’re not alone.  While sorting your craft supplies and tools may be a tedious undertaking, the effort will pay off when you know exactly where that pink gingham fabric went and you can tell at a glance if you have enough E600 glue left to finish a large project.   Retailers offer a bunch of …

Bejewel a Candle Holder

I love the look of this bejeweled candle holder made by Lisa from East Coast Bungalow. She covered an old highball glass with some plastic gems she found at the dollar store. I love the color of the gems! I think the effect is pretty striking. This would be a great technique to use on a vase (you could use a narrow water glass), or …
