    Fruity Wall Art

    I was given these old wall pieces, The one on the right is the original color, all gold and brown, and the one on the left was the same.

    I really did not know what to do with them, so I just started painting. First, I did an antique white all around the outside and over the fruit; then I just dry brushed over the antique white until I got the result I wanted; then I did a dry brush of brown to tone down the colors. I finished with a clear coat of sealer.

    Tea-dyed Flag Ball Jars

    So I took those tea dyed flags and separated the stick from the flag for s fun, experimental project.

    I decided to mod podge them onto a ball jar, so here is the first one I made.

    It was a learning curve working with the mod podge. As I make more, I will hope to improve the technique and the outcome of the project, but what a cool way to upcycle patriotic wedding decor or any party decor.

    Tea-Dyed Flags

    I had a lot of flags left over from my daughters wedding, so I tea dyed them. Yes, I said TEA.

    I put 7 tea bags in a dish, and laid the flags in the water for a couple of hours. That’s it, I love them tea dyed. It’s an easy way to make something look vintage.

    Gun Crafts

    I made these wreaths out of shot gun shells. My husbands family own Gun Craft, Inc, in Ruskin Florida. They always have a lot of gun shells on the gun ranges and we pick them up.

    I decided to try to make Christmas wreaths out of the shot gun shells.  I used 14 inch metal wreath frames and hot glued each shell to it, then I used Christmas ball ornaments that I purchased at Walmart and Home Depot.  I hot glued them on also in two layers to cover all open spaces, I finished with a bow and antlers.  They were a hit at the gun range, everyone loved them.
