31  Old window and wine corks in What the heck can I do with THIS? by trickygirlb on: December 09, 2008 08:32:00 AM
We had a million wine corks that we had collected throughout the years from dinners, dinner parties etc. (not really a million but it seemed like it), and I found this window on it's way to the dump from a house that had replaced it's windows. I carefully removed the glass in the window (if you attempt this be sure to wear gloves, eye goggles, and long sleeves) I had to pull out the stubborn pieces with pliers. I then wiped it down and made sure there were no chards or glass fragments and painted the window, over the cracked previous paint because I wanted it to look weathered. I then got some thin board and tacked it to the back of the frame, you can used anything from thin wood to cardboard, just make sure it is well secured onto the frame. I then began gluing all of my corks onto the board in the frame with Elmer's Wood Glue, I think I even ran out halfway through and used regular white glue which also has secured it just as well. Keep it laid flat until all the glue is dry. I then screwed two hooks into the top of the frame so I could hang it with wire, and TaDa! I have a really nice Cork board in my kitchen for almost nothing! I love recycling!

32  Cute Purse made out of Oatmeal Box in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by trickygirlb on: December 09, 2008 08:21:32 AM
I wanted to share this because it turned out so well. I used an Oatmeal box, the cylinder one with the plastic lid, and took old ribbons that I keep from gift bows and mod podged them onto the box. I punched to wholes in the side and put blue cord that came from a gift bag to use as the handle. The purse opens from the side by taking off the plastic lid. My daughter loves this, she stores her little toys in it and carries it around with her everywhere.

33  Re: I need new ideas!--please post your homemade Christmas ornaments in Winter Holidays by trickygirlb on: December 07, 2008 08:35:13 PM
This is what I do every year for Christmas. The first year it was because I was strapped ofr cash, now it is a tradition. We make paper snowflakes and paint pine cones we find silver, and I make an angel to top the tree out of tissue paper and ribbons from previous gifts received.

34  String Skully Doll in CHALLENGE 33 ENTRIES by trickygirlb on: December 03, 2008 11:29:08 AM
Made with Kite String, Muslin, Mod Podge, Black Paint Pen.
I made a few different ones to give to the children of my cousins age ranging from 2 - 13. I think they are cute for younger kids and cool for the older ones. Hopefully they will like them.
