Mod Podge Deer Glitter Glasses

It has been the year of the deer. Everywhere you look you have deer decor and why not bring it into my kitchen?  I decided to make my mod podge deer glitter glasses with gold glass glitter. I wanted something that would stand out from my cabinet.

I went a head and got my glasses from Target and they where only a $1! I got four and are perfect for the holiday season.

I washed the glasses and then used my cameo silhouette to cut out a stencil of a deer silhouette. I used contact paper to use as a stencil because its cheaper than using vinyl. I applied the a thick coat of mod podge to the glass with the stencil.

Remove the contact paper once I applied the mod podge.

Now its time to apply the gold glitter glass. I got the gold glitter glass from Muster Seed Milk part site. She has the most amazing inspiration and antiques for sale.

After I applied the glitter I let it set for 24 hours. You probably don’t need to let it set for so long but I wanted to make sure the glitter would not come off right away when I was going to seal it.

When it came time to seal my mod podge deer glitter glasses I used the mod podge because its the only thing from my research that would allow the glasses to be drinkable. However, the glasses need to be handwashed to you don’t lose the glitter and mod podge is water soluble.

Here it is my deer glasses ready to be shared with friends and family this holiday season. I added my family recipe Puertorican coquito which we make every Thanksgiving to drink during the holidays and Christmas. I just love sitting by the tree at night and having a glass.

Merry Christmas!

Vintage Camera Tripod Lamp

Last year I got inspired my HGTV to make a vintage camera tripod lamp.  I always enjoy making something new from some unexpected items. I decided to make another set of vintage cameras tripod lamps, this time I found the tripod in white and I though maybe someone else will enjoy having them in their home. I will be adding them to my Easy shop and a couple of other items as well.

You can find the original tutorial on the vintage camera tripod here. I did purchase the lamp from Ikea which has a thread cord with no assembly required. I wish I would have know about that the first time around. It took forever wrapping yarn around the cord the first time.

A vintage camera tripod seems to add that extra touch to any home. If I had my way I would make many of them but finding the tripod is the hard part. I have gotten lucky finding them on eBay but not as frequent as I would like so I could share them with everyone.

Hope you enjoy the tutorial!!

You never know when inspiration might hit you and Anthropologie always is full of new and creative thing that I wish I old just have it all! I especially love shopping in the clearance section , you just never know what you might find and I always find something that I just need to have for my home.

I always love a good teacup however, I don’t drink tea. I would like to someday acquired the taste for Hot tea but it it has not happen yet. I was thinking of maybe one day through a cute little tea party for me and my girlfriends, it will definitely give me an excuse to buy more teacups. I guess another trip to Anthropologie is in order.

 

I also got cute little jade bowls. At this moment I really don’t know what to use them for but A cute tea party I think will be a good excuse to figure something out.

What will you find out your next Anthropologie trip? I’m thinking I might need a couple teapots, good treasure hunting to all you crafters.
