Tesoro Fino Shares her Craft Ideas

German Glitter

Rainin', sippen' coffee, and creatin'...

So, I start my day with a project in mind for the New Year and get side tracked lookin' for materials and trimmings.  I find this spice rack of bottles with cork lids that I picked up at a yard sale and get totally side tracked.   I want to do so many things and start so many projects.  So I start by filling my trimmings like German Glitter inside the spice bottles...

Chandelier Crystal Pendants and Polymer Clay Roses

And some crystal baubles and roses...

Vintage White Buttons & Pearls

I glue some vintage buttons on the cork tops and tie some vintage inspired string around the bottles...

I continue to fill my supplies in it...

I add buttons at the center of my bows....

 Add a tag that says trimmins...  
Spray paint the rack white...
Place the bottles inside the rack...
And hang it right by my creative corner...

As pieces dried, I continued to attack other projects I've begun for the holiday season that I can't wait to share.  Sometimes you just have to go with the flow and let your creativity happen!
