OK Here We Go.... I made up the snowmen heads using warm n natural and just tossed them on a bowl.. I though I have these nice labels..what if...? At crafts show that I do, I mostly use wood so hey I'll make a wood box. I used one of my labels from my Christmas set on the side...I took a label and stuck it on a stained hang tag, and added the mica flakes around the edge to try to cover it. Well it's Feb and I still have this setting out!
NOW the Halloween.. One of my sponsor's on the race car is a bar/restaurant so they have a dumpster full of empty glass bottles! And you can get those big bottles too. ( I love the blue glass Sky Vodka bottles ...the BOTTLES not the stuff inside!! whuuee!LOL) So I put my leather gloves on and went in for a dip. I boiled out the bottles and cleaned off any paper labels that were left on them. In the top I stuck a piece of wood stick, wrapped it with spanish moss or on some I used the really cool sheet moss ( remember that when you go to buy the stuff! Lordy try to explain to a sales lady " You know, that grassy green stuff that grows on trees!" Ok then wrap the bottle neck with grungy stained cheese cloth.... I sold these by the DOZEN! So easy to make and cheap too. The only cost being the labels ,and cheese cloth, because empty beer bottles, sticks, and moss ( if you can find it) is free. The skull heads with the bottles is a pattern that I made up and sold on ebay also. I have a matching bones pattern I have to write up yet..oh soo little time soo much to do.... Ok there is your idea for the day... Hugs To all Rene
Well here I am again, This picture is from set 1 of my vintage labels. All ya need is a glue stick and something to stitck the label on! Glass, wood, metal..it sticks to all. Can't really peel it off , that isn't a good thing ,but then it won't just fall off either. With my Christmas labels. I stuck them on stained hang tags and put a fine line of mica flakes around the label edge to cover it. I'll take a pic of what I did with the Christmas label.. I'll get ideas roasting!
