Mother’s Day Flower Pens

“I hope everyone had a great Mother’s day yesterday!  I wanted to share something  I made for my mother-in-law!  She loves funky pens and I remembered seeing pens made out of the heads of artificial flowers and thought what a great gift for her!  So…. I made a little “bouquet” of them for her for Mother’s Day!

This is  quick and easy project and sure to brighten up anyone’s day!

Dollar Store Craft – Glass Bead Candle Holder

Let me start by saying that this is a “Leftover” materials craft.  When I made the glass bead wind chime, I had some of the glass beads left over.  I was just going to add them to my stash but then decided to do something else with them because as I am sure the rest of you know… the stash does not need anything else lol!

This ended up being basically a free craft for me because I already had a square clear glass container I could use for it!

Bling Perfume Bottle 

I couldn’t make up my mind about what to do today.  I knew I had a technician coming so I didn’t want to start something big or messy. 

I remembered about a glass perfume bottle I bought last Christmas,  intending to make a gift 😳,  that I never got around to. 

Today I decided to bling it out!  Then I can put it away, finished,  for this Christmas! 


I started out with the bottle and a pile of bling, undecided at that point exactly what I was planning to do. 

I decided to start by gluing the rhinestones around the lid,  and then the top and bottom of the bottle. 

Next I started laying out little gemstone flowers on the placemat until I found one I liked. 

I glued it in place on the bottle, then added a couple of swirls, a row of gemstones around the top of the bottle and then a little design on the lid.

I decided at this point I was also going to put a coat of the glitter glue I have over the whole thing to sort of hold the bling in place until I sealed it. Plus it would add more glitter/bling!

And this is my finished Bling Perfume Bottle ready to be put away for Christmas! 

A quick and easy gift idea for any occasion!
