Another one for the first challenge bucket.
A before shot:

Lonely dirty glass sitting on a shelf I am soon to be working on. I have no idea where the idea came from to do this but here goes.

So first you get some ugly buttons then you paint some buttons: Then you paint your fingers haha. THEN, you paint some more buttons oi!

Then after all that mess dries you take the glue gun and glue some buttons....Then put a candle in it and yer done!

Then you might drink some wine and try to take a pic in the dark...or not haha.

Detail of the buttons:

I don't have another close up of the buttons after I took the glue gun strands off and now my camera is acting up again so I have to go with this one since it might not get fixed before the 5th.


It was super duper fun hehe....
