Seashell Decorated Diffuser Bottle

Remade-Diffuser-Bottle

Since summer is coming to an end I wanted to do a craft that would allow us to combine some of the fun things that we might have found at the beach. This is an easy project that can be done with just about anything and can be done on all sorts of bottles. The great thing, I have found, about these bottles is that they can given as gifts for any occasion.

Materials Needed:

  • Empty diffuser bottle
  • Seashells
  • Glass beads
  • Colored/stained sea glass
  • Strong hold glue- I used Gorilla Glue
  • Craft stick- used to apply glue
  • Sand-this is optional

Instructions:

  1. Clean bottle if it contains any labels and glue. Lay out some newspaper to protect your workspace and lay the bottle down flat on the newspaper.
  2. Glue on the sea glass, seashells and beats. If you have chosen to use sand you can leave spaces between the sea glass pieces to sprinkle to sand onto the glue.
  3. All that is left is to let the glue dry completely before moving or gifting your new diffuser bottle.

Cocktail Umbrella Lamp Shade

So I was looking for something unique to add to our home decor and found this amazing lamp shade. I have never seen anything like this but loved it immediately. It is also a great way to recycle those cocktail umbrellas after you have a party or get together. This lamp shade is a piece that will make your home decor stand out and have people talking about it.

Materials Needed:

  • Cocktail Umbrellas in all designs and colors
  • Hard, hollow plastic ball-any shape and size as long as it can fit a bulb inside
  • Light bulb

Instructions:

  1. Start by taking the plastic ball and cut a 5cm radius. This will be where you place the light bulb when you are finished.
  2. Next you will take the cocktail umbrellas and one by one poke them into the sides of the ball. If you have problems poking the toothpicks through the ball you can use something sharp like a safety pin to make the holes. Continue to poke them through the ball until the ball is filled.
  3. This can then be placed over the bulb and used to decorate any room.
