At the following site they show you how to use bottles at photo frames

You could also make one into a lamp.  There is a tutorial over at Instructables on how to make a lamp out of a wine bottle, but it is the same concept.


If you know anyone with a kiln, you could have them melted down to make unique cheese trays.


If you know anyone with a glass cutter or if you have a glass shop in the area, you could have them cut down to make a vase or one monster of drinking glass!

This is a good way to upcycle/recycle used plastic gift cards into something useful.

24  PRETTY PINK DRAGON EASTER EGG in Easter by KMOM13 on: February 17, 2009 03:32:48 AM

This is girly version of the dragon eggs I posted earlier.

This is just a pink plastic Easter Egg with a design hot glued on it then painted with pink glitter and stars nail polish and rose pink nail polish over the glue design.

Here is an up close picture of it, but it looks much better in person because the light catches the glitter and sparkles that the camera doesn't.

25  Dragon Easter Eggs - Easy & Inexpensive! in Easter by KMOM13 on: February 17, 2009 01:34:39 AM

I made these for my son and will put candy in them for Easter and they can be used as desk or shelf decoration after that. This project was inspired by the link below at Instructables by KaptinScarlet.

As I had everything on hand except the eggs, my only cost was the eggs and they had them 30% off at JoAnn fabrics so they only cost 69 cents for 6 eggs. The eggs are a little larger than standard Easter Eggs, but you could also get standard ones from the dollar store and would get more eggs.

Each egg takes about 1 glue stick and even though I used 3-4 coats of paint, it did not really take much, so I estimate the cost to be less than 15 cents per egg.

If anyone is interested in making these, I have posted a link of the how-to at Cut Out and Keep and on my blog at

27  THUMB PRINT HEART NECKLACE in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by KMOM13 on: February 12, 2009 01:03:06 AM

I made this to be more of kid's project for a child to do for a loved one, but it could be made into a more grown-up version by using jump rings, clasps and a chain instead of ribbon.

The pictures I took really do not do it justice because it looks much better in person and you can easily see the ridges of the finger print.

Cost for each necklace is less than 50 cents each.

If anyone is interested, here is a link to the tutorial on my blog:

28  SCOTTIE DOG PIN in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by KMOM13 on: February 10, 2009 05:54:48 PM

COST: Under 50 cents (all are scraps from my stash, the seed beeds were less than a penny each, I previously purchased a bag of 100 googly eyes for $1, the peach nose is from fabric paint that I have had for a few years and the pin back came in a bag of 50 that I got on clearance at for $2).

TIME: 25 mins (mostly due to hand stitching)

I love this Scotty Dog project! We used to have Scotty Dog and wearing this honor's Dutchess's memory.

I previously made a scarf using this pattern that was based on a project by Mrs. T at Cut Out And Keep:


This is a Scotty Dog pin that I made to pin on my jacket when I wear the scarf.

I stuffed this one with fabric scraps and used white seed beads and sewed my initial to his coat.

He is adorable!

It must be something new with Craftster that you have to have ten posts before you can put a picture up as I have seen several people indicate and it is sort of bummer because people can't see the wonderful creations. 

Here is a pic of the cute little guy for everyone to see:

30  FAST AND EASY GIRLY MONSTER COIN PURSE in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by KMOM13 on: February 03, 2009 09:22:18 AM

My inspiration for this project was the Monster Coin Purse posted by Katherine B at Cut Out And Keep, but I decided to make mine a girly one with huge wonky eyes, long eyelashes and big old red lips.


It took about 10 minutes and cost almost nothing to make.

It just takes a wee bit of pink felt for the body and scraps of fabric, ribbon, googly eyes and velcro from my stash to make the rest of it.  The sides, the spine on the back and the googly eyes were hand stitched but the rest is done with a hot glue gun.

This project is easy enough for a grade schooler to do with supervision and they could make it for friends and grandparents as presents.
