Recycle Or Re Use,


I was totally and I mean TOTALLY out of my comfort zone this afternoon doing this,
Not the recycling bit, as I do that as much as I can, but I mean the glass painting bit,
I have made this odd glass we had, that hubby kept trying to get rid of, into a tea light candle holder, (even tho theres no candle in it when I took the picture as it didnt look right unlit)
I put two rose peel offs on either side of the main part of the glass and two leave peel offs around the base of the stem, then I coloured using souffle and glaze sakura pens,
There was a knack to keeping it level so it would dry without running etc,
I am entering this for the challenge over at http://thepinkelephantchallenge.blogspot.com
I am please with the outcome, and might even do more, as I think they might sell well for the local RSPCA that I support with all of my sales

If you wouldn't have said that you were out of your comfort zone I would have never known, your candle holder is gorgeous.

I love this idea! Some tea lights float so it would be cool to put some water in it. Do you have PartyLite candles there. I know those float.

Blessings,
Christine

What a lovely idea, it looks great and if it raises money and awareness through charity it is even greater.
