Over at Just For Fun this weeks theme, still carrying on with recycling, is “from the sewing box or the bedroom”. This week is a bit special as the lovely Hazel is guest designer. Click on the links to see all the fabulous creations.
I hunted through the bedroom. I found a couple of bits of furniture that could do with a make over. Or should I say, I would like to give them a make over but bits and pieces were hard to find. Eventually I found a perfume bottle. It had some perfume in but it must be 18 years old! So that went down the plug hole and this is what I made with the empty bottle.

I covered the bottle in some cream coloured ceramic paint and when it was touch dry I rubbed some shimmer powder stuff into it. The paint will scratch off with a sharp knife but the powder is fixed. I think it would have been better to have baked it. I will experiment on another one. I found a mamlok scrap which I glued to the front. I cut up a wine bottle cork to fit the hole.
I am going to fill this with some beads and give it to a crafty friend as a stocking filling.
This is what I started with
Off to catch up with everyone else.
