Decorative Bottles

Two options:

Option 1: Glue flat backed jewels onto the entire bottle. Let dry… done!

Option 2: Spray paint the bottle a flat color. When dry, use acrylics to paint geometric designs like in the picture. Let dry.

Swiss Army Style Key Ring

17c3ec4600a5dd2066d369f974a37df6

You’ll need:

  • Materials: Two pieces of wood (about 1″ x 3.75″ x 1/8″ each) Thin sheet metal (about 2″ x 3.75″) Two #8 machine screw lock nuts Two #8 machine screws, 3/4″ long Ten #8 machine screw washers Glue that is able to bond wood to metal (not pictured) Wood stain (optional) Polyurethane (optional)
  • Tools: Drill and bit set Tin snips Sand paper/sanding block Small binder clamps Pencil Ruler
  • Source Tips: Paint stir sticks are a good size to be used for the wood pieces. These are generally free at the paint section of most hardware stores. For the sheet metal, I used a baking sheet that I found at dollar tree for $1. This yields about 13″ x 9″ of metal.
