If Ya Like It, Put Some Bling On It!

"Wo, o,oooo, wo o oooo"

Firstly this post is scored to the tune of Beyonce's (best) song, Single Ladies, so please hum it as you read.

If you think I was excited about my trash-chic, Glitter Jars - that was nothing compare to these In fact if I knew how to make one of those favicon things this would be it. Seriously I want to make business cards, kids t-shirts, mugs anything. If I'm driving you insane with this, spare a thought for my poor family!

When I made the jars, I didn't tell you I over estitmated how much of the glitter/Mod Podge I would require, so I decided to make me some bling!!

Supplies (all on hand, these were FREE!!!!):

Glass flat pebbles
Ring base/necklace things
ribbon cord
super glue

Using the glitter/mod podge I painted the back of the pebbles, then sealed them.

Stuck them on the ring base and the necklace thing (I only use technical terms as you can see), let them dry for 24 hours, very important!

And if I wasn't too old, too overweight and too tall, I'd pop on a back bathing suit and 9 inch heels and dance the streets singing Single Ladies.

DIY Delight or Disaster? Ummm, do I really need to answer this????

Then I was excited I tried to do an artsy photo shoot (that ended badly)


Thanks for reading
