Toucan Sculpture

30 Jun

I have a ledge in my entry which is right off the living room that I have never know just what to do with.  I have tried a couple of things and they look fine but ordinary.  Well over at Oops, I Craft My Pants I have found an idea.  She has used a toucan, but think I will lean more toward the Northwest animals.  It should be fun!

Tinted Glass

28 Jun

Have you seen this tinted glass on Pinterest?   I thought it was very pretty, but couldn’t be as easy as they say, so I gave it a try.  Mix a few drops of food coloring with elmers glue and painted the outside of a clear glass dish.  It actually works!  Couple of tips:  Make sure you have an even coat, watch for drips they will show after it dries and remember that this is not permanent, it will wash off with water.
