Recycled Wine Bottle, Lamp Shade, Curtain Hooks and Jeans

This week at Frosted Designs, we challenge you to Recycle or Upcycle.  You can create a layout, card or altered (upcycled) project.  For my project today, I painted a wine bottle, used part of a lampshade, added clips from curtains I no longer have and a bit of denim from an old pair of jeans.  I created my own version of the clip it!
I spray painted a wine bottle with primer and then black paint.  I cut the word Create from Home Decor at 1.24 inches out of a scrap of purple vinyl.  I took apart the lampshade.  I saved the bottom hoop for another project.  I added some clips that were on some drapes when we moved into this house.  I donated the drapes, but kept the clips.

I adhered the vinyl to the bottom of the wine bottle.

I put the cork into the bottle and hot glued the lampshade frame to the top of the cork.

I took a strip of my old jeans and glued it on a cardstock circle to make a flower.  I glued the flower on top of the cork.

I added some of my embellishments and put it on my desk!

I will be using the rest of the lampshade, more denim, more purple vinyl and a cookie sheet find from the good will in upcoming projects!
