Clay Pot Lighthouses

Paint and glue clay pots together. For the beacons I used candle holders and tealights for some and solar lights for the others

Lighthouse Inspired Windchimes
I made these a while ago and this is one of those crafts where you get a "Better" idea for it AFTER it's done. For this I used the bottoms of clay pots and a glass candle holder for the top. The "Better" idea would be to use solar lights. Mine is cute but it doesn't light up.

You can tint glass with Mod Podge and either acrylic paint or food coloring. Dilute your Mod Podge with water and add your coloring. Pour it in your jar and swirl it around so the sides are completely covered. Drain out excess and let dry upside down so it continues to drain. It takes about 24 hrs to dry. Be sure to move them occasionally so excess does not puddle at the opening of your jar.... Drying time can be quicker if you bake them in the oven at a low temperature

Beach Keepsake Jars
I might have "Borrowed" some sand from the beach. I put it in a glass jar, in this case a empty spaghetti sauce jar). I decoupaged some pics I had taken, along with some clipart I found online. Add some rope and ribbon with a hot glue gun and you have a very inexpensive, personalized keepsake from your vacation.

Add Burlap and rope to a wine bottle

Nautical Denim Pillows

Nautical Denim Pillows

Recycle old jeans into nautical pillows. (Not sure husband realized he was done with them.) Yea I can sew. No pattern but they are all straight lines. I said I can sew I didn't say I was good at it 

Sailboat Wall Hanging

Sailboat Wall Hanging

This was made with all Dollar Tree items. I stiffened the burlap with diluted Mod Podge and glued it to the back of the sailboat cut out, I had painted black. I glued a small piece of styrofoam to the bottom left hand corner and insert the flowers into the top and sides of it leaving the front edge of the styrofoam bare so I could glue the sand dollar to it to cover. Added twine and thought I was done until I tried to hang it. Yea my boat wanted to capsize so I added the 2nd sand dollar for balance.


Anchor Wall Hanging

Anchor, charger plate, burlap, and beads. Everything Dollar Tree.


Beach Mesh Wreath 

An easy way to make a mesh wreath is using Dollar Tree loofas and a pool noodle. Cut the white rope holding the loofa together and unravel. The mesh for the loofa is cyclinder shaped and slides right over a pool noodle. 5 loofas will fill in a pool noodle nicely. I used dowels, glue and duct tape to hold the ends of the pool noodle together. I added Dollar Tree accents, rope and a fish net. But you can add whatever you'd like. This method is a whole lot easier then messing around with mesh that unravels and pipe cleaners.

Sailboat Table Arrangement

Sailboat Table Arrangement

Everything here is from Dollar Tree. I first glued styrofoam inside the basket, added hot glue to the front to make the water. Glued on the shells leaving the styrofoam exposed in the back corner so I could insert the flowers. Painted the water with blue and green paint and Mod Podged with gloss over it when it dried. Added boat, flowers/greens and starfish.


Decoupaged Sailboat Charger Plate 

Everything from Dollar Tree. This one is super easy, decoupage picture on the Charger Plate and add rope and shells.

Hint: When gluing to these plastic chargers use both hot glue and E6000. Hot glue alone won't hold.

I work on several crafts at the same time and sometimes things go together that were not intended to. I made the gnome for the Bear Budgets Crew. I got him this far when I realized he looked like the Gordon's Fisherman and thought he'd be cute with this plate.



This mold is available at Amazon. The big ones are 2" the small ones are approx 1 1/2". You can fill them with clay and wait for clay to dry OR ....


Simply fill them with your hot glue gun

This is a prescription bottle gnome. There are instructions for the RX gnomes on the Gnomes Page. Anchor material came from Dollar Tree.

Same gnome, I'm just having fun with him. Buoy is a Dollar Tree styrofoam disk I cut a hole in, wrapped with felt and added a rope.
