So folks, I decided to have another shot at re/upcycling, which I have decided to rename Trash Chic, mainly because up/recycling sounds an awful lot like exercise, which I should do more of, but don't. Oh by the way, if someone else has come up with this term, don't tell me, I'm once again marveling at my incredibly genius mind. (I probably did read it somewhere!)
Actually I'm really happy with this one, isn't she sparkly and pretty!
First off I was just going to do some ribbon wrapped vases, however it began to look very much like a butter project, if you're new here, welcome, and you can see what a butter project is here
So I firstly I force fed the kids pasta for a week, just to collect the trash, (only slightly exaggerating) and cleaned the bottles. Oh and to you regular trash chicers, props for the cleaning bit, I used steel wool and wow that stuff hurts!
I used equal parts og glitter and modpodge and mixed to a nice consistency.
Please note the profession mixing jar, you should all have Shrek plastic containers. I mixed the glitter and glue and then painted it on.
After painting, I was concerned with it chipping so I looked around to see if I had any sealer, I did I bought it 10 years ago, look what came out of the bottle, GROSS!
But it worked, yay.
I love this so much, so while I ask you, as I do every day, DIY Delight or Disaster? Obviously I'm delighted.
