Etched Pint Glasses: Merry ReX-mas & Holiday Grumpy Cat

Leave a comment

It’s that time of the year again. We’re all striving to find someone a neat gift that doesn’t cost a ton of money but is unique and cool at the same time. Something that says, “I put a little thought into this and didn’t just walk into an Urban Outfitters and grab a tchotchke from the checkout line while waiting to buy myself a sweater.”

My glasses are personally designed by myself and at only $10 apiece, they’re budget-friendly. Using an acid-etching technique, the design is permanent and will never wash away or chip like enamel decals.

Do-It-Yourself Holiday Ornament Wreath!

Leave a comment

I always see great versions of wreaths made of christmas ornament balls on Pinterest and thought I would try my own. Since I love bright colors and wanted something that didn’t necessarily scream Christmas, I chose balls in blue, purple, green, orange, and silver. As I was picking out a foam wreath from the craft store I found some neat glittery flowers I decided to incorporate.

All you need is:

  1. styrofoam ring
  2. christmas ornamental balls
  3. hot glue gun and extra glue sticks
  4. bow/ribbon (optional)
  5. flowers (optional)

Glass of wine optional.

While your hot glue gun is heating up, remove the metal hanging facets from each ornament. Dab the ornament with glue in two different areas and proceed to attach to foam ring. Glue ornaments to each other in addition to the ring. As you can see above, I chose to build up one area and then work my way around. Finally adorn with bow and you’re ready to hang it!
