Shabby Sunday #8

Happy Sunday everyone and welcome to Shabby Sunday week #8

This week I have altered 2 x pasta sauce jars (that were due to be recycled this weekend) to make a lovely wee shabby chic candle holders, they are now out of the recycling chain and will be used around the house and garden deck area.

I plan to take a picture of them this evening with the candles lit, so that you can see what they are like in the dark ๐Ÿ™‚

shabby sunday #8

Supplies list :-

  • Vintage Lace from Lavish Laces Etsy Store
  • Burlap strips and burlap flowers
  • vintage button
  • Hemptique cord
  • Scor-tape
  • Tim Holtz Tattered Florals Die
  • Stampin Up Crumb Cake Tuile
  • Calico Fabric
  • Glue Dots, linen thread, Collall Glue
  • Antique Linen Distress Ink (to die the lace just below the hemp cord on the jar on the right)

shabby sunday #81

The jars were cleaned thoroughly in the dishwasher before being used ๐Ÿ™‚

In the tealight holder below, I used the tattered florals die by tim holtz and cut out several layers of calico and tuille, stitched them all together and layered with shop a bought burlap flower.

shabby sunday #8 2

It is really easy to make these jars, I used lace and fabric, but you could use patterned paper, felt, paint, the possibilities are endless, plus you do not need to use real tealights (flame variety) you can buy little tealights with an artificial flame that are battery operated, which will make them super safe ๐Ÿ™‚

Shabby Chic Photograph Book

I headed up to my shed late morning to make something shabby… it feels like an age since I made anything shabby…

I was supposed to be working today, but I worked my butt off for 10 hours straight yesterday, so that I didn’t have to go into work today.

So shabby chic it was and as it turned out, very much a recycling project..

here is what i made:-

Shabby Chic Photo Book 1

 

it started off ย it life looking like this

DSCN1670

 

then I chopped the sides off

DSCN1671

 

and made it into a bookcover..

DSCN1673

 

I added some watered down acrylic paint..

DSCN1675

 

and painted the cover back and front with several coats, until it looked how I wanted it

DSCN1674

 

I took a second & third piece of corrugated cardboard, ran it through an embossing folder, and gave it the same paint treatment, all the edges were inked with pumice stone distress ink..

the picture above is the piece that I added to the outer spine of the photograph book. ย I then added some burlap strands and a piece of junk jewels from my local charity shop and it looks like this…

shabby Chic Photograph Book

 

The inside pages are just a heavy weight textured cardstock that I stitched together, then stitched them into the book, I used Ozegran (Jen’s) binding technique, a link to her blog is on my sidebar.

Shabby Chic Photograph Book 5

 

I roughed up all the edges of the book pages..

Shabby Chic Photograph Book 2

 

the front of the book features another one of the wooden hearts that I picked up from Hobbycraft at christmas.

there are also some vintage flowers, a padlock and a heart stick pin.. and I also incorporated some of my own handmade paper that I made last year from pulping down old letters and envelopes

Shabby Chic Photograph Book 3

 

As I mentioned at the start of my post, I have done a lot of recyling and “using it up” in this project..

  • The cover was from an old cardboard box
  • the spine gem came from the charity shop
  • the cardstock I had for 4 yrs (using it up)
  • the handmade paper on the front I made from old letters and envelopes

you can see the handmade paper just peeking out from behind the wooden heart..

Thanks for popping round.. hope you have had a great weekend!
