Tutorial for hanging your Mod Podge Lanterns

This little tutorial is for Meg!  She wrote me asking how to make the hanging system for the little Mod Podge lanterns.

Thank you for asking, Meg.  I never thought about that part!  I was way too excited playing with my Mod Podge!

So... here is a simple way to make a hanger for your lanterns!

Tools are simple! 

1. I like to use 16 gage wire because it is still fairly easy to bend but it holds it's shape well.

Butterfly Mobile Made from Aluminum Pop Cans

Super simple way to recycle those ubiquitous aluminum pop cans!  Turn them into a mobile of fluttering butterflies!

Making the mobile is fairly easy and quick, but figuring out how to get the butterflies to remain horizontal while suspended from the support string was a big pain.  The reason I wanted the butterflies to remain horizontal while suspended is that I wanted them to gently flutter or tip from side to side in the breeze.

Mod Podge and Food Coloring Make Beautiful Reuse Music Together

 

I am loving the pastel colors of these spring time lanterns - a little reuse project I have been playing around with lately!

Easter Eggs Decorated with Recycled Kool-Aid Colored Egg Shells and Mod Podge and How to Make Cascarones!

I know!  A lot for one post!  But Easter is almost here so what is a girl to do?  I promise - this is a short post!

All you need to make a mosaic egg like this one is a blown out egg shell, Mod Podge, a brush, and the shells left from peeling your Easter Eggs!

It was hard enough to crack and peel my Kool-Aid colored Easter eggs, but tossing out all those colored bits was impossible!  I saved them in a jar while thinking about what I could do with them.

Easter Eggs Colored with Kool-Aid - Seeking Red Update!

After my first adventure dyeing eggs with kool-aid (which you can find here) I am still on a quest to find a Kool-Aid flavor that produces a pink or red egg!

I just HAD to see what happens in a Tropical Punch and a Cherry bath!

Tropical punch is on the left and cherry on the right!  There is no difference!  The color is closer to red - not red red but closer than I was before.
