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. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

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 ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

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. ย 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 ๐Ÿ™‚

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