We've all got those "pins" don't we? You know, those ones that we pin and say - I'm going to try that. This week, I've had a little more off time from running people to and fro. Perfect time to try a couple of my pins.
From The Primitive Pantry directions on how to make grubby candles with rusty wire hangers.
Above, my finished candles and below are the before photos.
The directions for this candle grubby technique is WAY easier than using Modge Podge.
Dipping bulbs in silicone - tried this once before and wasn't happy with how they turned out. These directions are from Oodledadoodle Primitives. Sue suggests adding mineral spirits to thin the silicone. I also added burnt umber oil artist paint for a slight color.
They still don't look like store bought ones, nor did I get them to end up looking like Sue's. I will use them in my lights - they aren't horrible! I tried to get a picture of Shadow on the table batting at the bulbs while they were drying. He is such a helper.
Do you have any projects I should pin?
