Hi there!!!
I made this Jam Jar Pen holder that I wanted to share with you.......
As you know, recycling projects are one of my favorites!!!!
And, this was no exception.....
Its a really simple project but it looks really nice......

Pen holder

I used a square glass jam jar for this pen holder......
I first painted it all black, as you can see here.....

Glass jar

Then I made some random Pearl white Polka dots on the bottle all over....

A nice white ribbon around the neck completed the project......

DIY Fluffy (Frosty)- The Snowman

There can't be winter decoration without our beloved Frosty the Snowman....Right???
Here's my version of him.....
I made this "Fluffy" Frosty with my son for his school project......
Snowman
We made this one out of Shaving cream and Elmer's Glue (Fevicol can do too)......
Saw it initially at Kraftykid .....
I made mine a little differently.....
I chose a Blue construction paper as a base.....
Then I pasted a white Snowman paper outline on the blue paper to make it easy 
for my son.....
Then we just used a candy stick to spread the shaving cream and Elmer's glue 
mixture on the white cutout till we covered it completely.....
We also spread some mixture along the bottom of the paper.....
When the mixture was still wet, we inserted the hat and a nose made out 
of construction paper........
We also made a smile from peppercorns....... :)
We added some shiny buttons on the front and a patterned paper scarf........
We also added googly eyes....my son's favorite!!!
The picture of the wet snowman looked like this.....it looks really uneven....
when you are making this, remember to add the scarf in reverse, as we will bend it forward to make the scarf.....

Fluffy Frosty

As it dried, we were able to see a smooth form to the structure.....
When it dried completely (overnight drying required), we glued the scarf 
together.....I cut a little fringe at the edge of the scarf......
Finally, my son drew some snowflakes and white dots on the blue paper 
to show snowfall........
We loved the overall effect of our "Fluffy"- The Snowman........
My son was so proud to take this to school........
His joy made me so happy :D

DIY Rose Branches

Roses are a crafters favorite!!!!
And I am no exception to that....
I made this Rose Branch Decorative Piece at a very low price :)
Let me tell you how.....

Rose Branches

I collected some branches that fell from a tree outside my house.....
The photo shows only two but there were some more....

Branches

I chose the best of the branches and got out my ammunition.....a spray can!!



I spray painted the branches gold.......ohh I love shiny, blingy stuff!!!
I loved the way they turned out :)

Gold Painted branches

When the branches were drying, I made some paper roses of different sizes....
Here they are!!!


Paper Roses

You can use ready artificial / silk flowers like these too....



I stuck the roses randomly on the branches with a hot glue gun....



Then, I took a glass vase and filled it with glass fillers for the base.....



Finally, I arranged the branches together in the vase....
This is how the final product looks....
It gives a very chic look to the house at a very minimal cost....

DIY Recycle Craft- Pen and Card Holder

Pen and Card Holder

Welcome to my latest post on Recycle Craft......
I have made a Pen and Card Holder by recycling toilet roll tube, cardboard and a scrap piece of wood......
I prepared the base by sanding the wooden piece......
Then, I glued the tube on the wooden piece using a hot gun......



I cut two cardboard semicircles and glued them on the wood as a card holder....
I also used PVA glue to  create texture on the roll and the cardboard and left it to dry.....


You can see the initial assembly in the picture below....

Recycle Craft
After everything was nice and dry, I painted the whole thing with acrylic color- black......
When the paint was dry, I used 3D outliners to create some wavy string designs and added a few diamantes for some added glitter....
I also dusted some golden powder on the whole piece to give it an antique look....
To finish the borders I used some braided golden lace.....
Finally, I gave it two coats of spray varnish for a glossy finish.....and it was ready!!
This Pen and Card Holder now sits on my hubby's desk :)
