1  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Re: Pretty Kitty ring dish. on: March 22, 2017 10:24:18 AM
What a great idea. I love the glitter too. Is it your rings are chunky or the cat is small? Sorry I just cant quite gauge the size

Thank you!
The rings are totally oversized. I only really wear tacky costume rings.  Cheesy
In the photo with all the rings, there are 3 on the tail, if that helps at all.

{I hope this is the right place to post, since it's not jewelry exactly}

I don't wear rings often, because I have a horrible habit of taking them off and leaving them places.  Sad
But I saw this idea on Pinterest, and it was love at first sight!

Inspired by Laura Gummerman's blog post on A Beautiful Mess.
I already had the tote & black letters. My Michael's didn't have the right trims, so I improvised a little.
Can't wait till it's warm enough for a beach day!

That's a really cool way to spruce up a turtleneck; the effect reminds me of studded leather.  Do you feel any discomfort from the beads on the arms if you rest your elbows/forearms on a hard surface?

I haven't worn it for an extended period of time yet (you're supposed to wait 7-10 days for the glue to cure), so I can't answer the "elbows on a hard surface" question -- although a few have already popped off, so I'll be careful with my elbows until I can reinforce them with thread.  Wink As for any discomfort, you can definitely feel the beads, but I didn't find it uncomfortable at all. Hope that helps!  Smiley

That's a very cool and unique design for a bird feeder.  How did you permanently attach the saucer and cup, glue, or some other means?  And what kinds of birds do you get in a lemon tree?

Thank you! I honestly don't know much about birds, but I saw the idea on Pinterest and fell in love, and the only trees we have are fruit trees.
I used both Hammer Head Quik Epoxy Steel & this stuff called Weldbond -- most tutorials I saw used Gorilla Glue or E6000, but these are what I had on hand. I used both "just to be safe", so hopefully they hold up! ☺️

I repurposed a thrift store cup & saucer into a bird feeder. Can't wait to fill it up and watch the bird buffet!

This is my first post in a long time. I took a craft hiatus for many personal reasons, but now that I've started back up, I can't seem to stop! And it feels great to be back!  Grin

I usually stay away from turtlenecks, because I feel frumpy in them. Then I saw this idea from brit+co, and decided to give it a try.

I used all materials I had on hand: old black sweater, pearl beads (from a previous swap project, actually) and an old headband. The only thing I needed was embellishment glue, and I got a mini 3-pack of Aleene's fabric glues for $3.

I'm pretty pleased with how it turned out. It was an inexpensive, relatively simple project, though a bit time consuming. Though the glue is supposed to be washable, I think I'll go back over time, and reinforce each bead with thread.

And it will certainly help make the gloomy weather we've been having lately a bit more tolerable.  Wink

Mod Podge is super easy! I usually give it an hour or so between layers -- but I'm an impatient crafter, so maybe read the label first. Wink

Thanks so much! It was super easy to make, and makes me smile every time I look at it!  Grin
