Today I'm sharing a pretty and inexpensive project. I saw this at a small diner we ate lunch in one day.
What do you think? Fancy right? It's tons of glitter, so I love it!
It needed something else I thought, so I added a fabric covered button with a cute similar bird on it. I think it finishes it off perfectly!
Want to know how I made it? Want to know what I used?
OK, OK, I'll tell you ;)
I went to the Dollar Tree, bought a round mirror, a tall vase and a small fish bowl. I then went to Joann's and bought some flower picks.
I put 2 of the green evergreen type boughs and the bird inside the vase and glued the open end to the mirror. While the glue was wet I added some micro beads then silver glitter to cover completely. I then glued the fish bowl base to the vase base.
I used the faux snow in the bottom of the fish bowl then placed the floral elements. I tied a craft boa around the joint of the two pieces then glued the button in place.
Simple and since the flower picks were half off, the whole project cost me around $5 not including the glue, beads, glitter and the fabric covered button because I had them here already.
