So for christmas, I wanted to make my sister a sun jar, since they cost a fortune, and I'm poor
So here's how it went!
Stuff you need: Solar powered garden light
Glass frosting spray (or snow spray if you can't find any)
A reasonable sized glass jar
Start off by twisting off the clear plastic spike thing, leaving you with simply the solar powered part and the LED
Next, attack the jar with your frosting spray or snow spray. Try to get an even, light coating, so the light isn't too dim.
Now, you've got the basics. The hardest part is finding a way to put the light inside the jar. I ended up using a small clear plastic jar (with a hole punched in the top for the LED), turned upside down to keep the solar panel in the sunlight. This meant the LED was facing down, so I put a few small mirrors on the bottom to reflected the light. Now screw on the lid and ta-da! Now just wait for darkness and your jar will glow. The light isn't as bright as commercial sun jars, more of a soft gentle glow, but still awesome!
Alright so I'm on holiday at the moment, stuck at home sick. So I decided to try teach myself to crochet. Well...I can do a line, but thats all. My internet is too slow atm to watch videos and I simply cannot understand how to do anything else!
Anyone got any really dumbed down tutorials? I'm just looking to even do a little square face cloth?
So, for my 18th birthday, I somehow managed to get the job of making myself a birthday cake, and here it is! Its chocolate sponge, filled with chocolate ganache, topped with marshmallow fondant. First time for both the filling and the fondant.
I made it in about 1 1/2 hours, so I'm pretty impressed. That includes cooling time etc.
I put a few chocolate Darleks around the side too
I never actually ate any of it, so have no clue if it was good or not lol but it impressed my friends!
Right, so I'm making a corset out of scraps of blue material, and I found a vintage hook and eye thing a the op shop, in cream. Anyways, what I wanted to know is is there anyway to dye the material without having to buy proper clothing dye (since it would be a waste on such a small piece of material...)
Well, today I found out my best friends parents are splitting up. She was devistated at school, and I couldn't stand seeing her so down (she's the happy person in our group of friends) so I quickly whipped these up. Me, I'm a total Twilight hater, so it felt wrong making these, but I hope she enjoys them! I used her favourite cookie recipe, which made icing hard as the middles kinda collapse in, but still, I think she'll get a giggle out of them!
Right, I know this has been suggested before but there HAS to be people here wanting to do a CM swap? It may take some thinking but I though anything CM inspired, private jokes between CM watchers or anything?
Right so I know I'm new and can't do a swap yet, but I thought a cool idea would be a cheer up theme. I have depression, so I often need cheering up, and I thought this would be a cool thing for us all to do so we can look at our swap gifts when we're down
