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!
