Button Project Fail

This week for my Craft Month project I was going to make a button bowl. I saw a picture on Pinterest and thought “I can do that”.

Well it started out fun and then the buttons began slipping down the balloon because of the glue. I guess Elmer’s craft glue isn’t the best to work with but its all I had. 😦

I was so excited to make this button bowl. The one I saw was wicked cute! I have a lot of small buttons I haven’t used and I thought this would be a great project. In my defense , the balloon round up pin didn’t mention why type of glue to use. I really should have some tacky glue on hand. But hey, lesson learned.

I am not giving up that easily though. On my next outing to a craft store I’ll pick up some tacky clue!

here is a link to a button bowl project ( I should of researched some before I started my project )

I popped the balloon too early 😦

I also tries to make polymer clay button… I plan to invest in a button mold! But these aren’t so bad.

Tips and How To's

New Project – Step 1

Oh Pinterest how I adore you sometimes. I found a tutorial that showed how to remove candle wax from their jars. Its so easy! Boiling water!!!

Why didn’t I think of that! I use to just use a knife to break the wax and then soak the jar to get the wax from the sides and scrub.  Boiling hot water is so much easier!

The boiling water is suppose to make the wax float to the top. Let sit for a few hours, until the water is cool.

Here are my fun results 🙂

I had to wash them out with a wet paper towel but it was easy to get the remaining wax.
