LUCK St Patrick's Day Wine Glasses

LUCK St Patrick's Day Wine Glasses

Materials: Dollar Store wine glasses, glitter spray paint ( I used Golden Glow and Lucky Green) Found HERE, bells, and hemp.
 Make sure your glasses are clean then simply spray them with the glitter spray and let dry for 24 hours. To Get the Luck letters I started off by spraying the top of the stem with gold and the rest of the glass with Luck Green. Once my first coat was dry I cut out the letters  LUCK our of paper, I then got the paper slightly damp and laid it out on the glasses (dampening it make them stick). Next I took the Gold and just lightly sprayed a little bit over the letters to give a gold burst effect around them. Take a toothpick or something sharp and lightly remove the letters right away so they don't stick to the glass. Once dry you can embellish them any way you want.
NOTE: When spraying these you must treat it like any spray paint, you need to do it in coats and spray at a slight distance, if you get to close or spay too much in one spot at a time then the paint/ glitter can run. If you live in a cold/ damp climate you need to take caution when spraying it may not tack up if its too cold out (you can spray them in a garage or somewhere warmer to help, but be careful of over spray in this case). Note: These are for decoration purpose only, not meant for actual food use. 

These are so much fun because the possibilities are endless! you can do anything you want and make any character you want. Just need some glitter spray and away you go!

Construction Site Footprint Craft Missing

Construction Site Footprint Craft Missing

So this week has sure been interesting. Many of you have noticed one very popular post missing from my blog this week "Construction Site Footprint Craft." I have had a large number of emails through out the week concerning this, so I figured I should let everyone know more about why it is missing. Due to the rise in interest for this craft I was approached by a company who has a footprint service and has paid for a copyright on a tractor print very similar to mine. Now as far as the copyright goes, for my own information, I did some checking with my attorney who has advised me in how the copyright of footprint crafts work, especially since this craft was my idea and design. After a very interesting visit with him, he let me know there is pretty much no possible way to copyright something like this since everyone has their own unique footprint and thus in itself makes it unique (unless you want to pay a Large amount of money to copyright the "Process" of it). Now my "Construction Site Craft" is 100% my own creation, as is all of my designs and posts unless otherwise noted. That being said the other persons print/ craft was close enough to mine and created before mine so due to the similarity of the image I choose to remove my post/ craft in respect of her business. Now I know many of you have not been happy that the post was removed since it was a very popular post, especially after being featured on a few other great blogs. But I have chosen to personally keep the post down, in respect for her. I thank you all for your understanding and I hope to have some other great construction site crafts up soon. Make sure to stay posted for other fun ideas and thank you so much for following along with us on our crafty adventures. :) :) :)

I greatly appreciate your support in my blog,
