I’m pretty dang excited about my gifts for the Pass it On Project! Isn’t it so much more fun to give gifts than to receive them?! I mentioned in this post that this project, thought up by Karah, is all about spreading some happiness and spreading joy all around. The idea is that you make something (whatever you want) and send it (and an extra if you choose) to someone. Then that person gets to keep one and pass along the extra to someone else. The whole concept is really cool. So when Gabbi and Amy asked me if I wanted to participate, I didn’t think twice!
As to what I made, all the credit goes to my good friend Jessica, who actually made her own a couple months ago. With her mom. While they drank wine. My kinda people. So when she sent me a picture from her phone, I said, “OMG let’s make these for the Pass It On Project!” So we drank wine and made some REDNECK WINE GLASSES. It was fabulous. I decided to Pass it On to three of my favorite bloggers! Stephanie, Lyndsay, and Diana, I hope you don’t mind going a little West Virginia back woods with me!
Plus a candlestick holder, which you’ll see it in a sec. The candlestick holders and faux flowers came from Dollar Tree for a buck!
Note: the super glue is for ALL GLASS. Muy importante! It is dishwasher safe and is safe in the oven. Not sure why these would ever go in oven, but hey, that’s what the package says. Even though it’s dishwasher safe and I really hate handwashing anything, I’d still recommend handwashing to be on the safe side.
Directions: Pluck a flower off the bouquet, stick flower in candlestick, then apply glue to candlestick and stick the Ball jar on top.
BAM! Done! I made 6 different pairs of matching glasses, so 12 glasses total. I sent two pairs of glasses to each blogger, one for her to keep and one to pass on! Below I displayed one glass from each pair.
Below is the yellow flower pair of glasses I sent to Stephanie. I remembered she loves sunflowers….
You don’t have to use flowers though, we even got a little frisky and used glass pearls in one pair!
And then combined a flower and a pink pearl in another pair:
…and cut out a rectangle piece of burlap and a rectangle piece of cream colored paper. And wrote a little note for my gift recipients Then I used the Mod Podge to glue the note on the burlap. I strung the twine through the burlap and wrapped it around the neck of the jar. I also put a little Mod Podge around the edges of the burlap so it wouldn’t unravel.
Diana, Lyndsay, and Stephanie, I hope you enjoy being part of the Pass it On Project as much as I have!! I think they’d be gorgeous at a barn wedding with a tea light candle inside too! Or just as gifts and instead of a birthday/graduation/whatever card, make a homemade note!
You know I made some for myself as well. I’ve tested them out. And somehow I felt oddly sophisticated
