We've been drinking lots of bottled water lately and are having a hard time disposing of so many jugs. It seemed like there must be some crafts that can be made from them. I tried making a fall decoration for my wall and this is what I came up with. I used a utility knife and scissors to cut the bottle. After cutting the shape I wanted, I applied yellow gold Mod Podge (recipe below) as a semi transparent "paint." A hot glue gun came in handy for applying the yarn, beads, and sequins. To mount the finished product on the wall, I just used a little plasty tack. Here it is!
3 Tbsp. Mod Podge (glossy or matte; I like glossy)
5 drops yellow food coloring
1 tsp. gold glitter acrylic craft paint
To use, apply to the item you want to paint with brush or sponge and then was brush or sponge immediately in hot water and soap. Dish soap gets it out more easily.
