Use Scrapbook Paper for DIY Home Decor

DIY Wall Art

The other day I ran across this gorgeous DIY wall art over at Jessica's Musings. It was made from a canvas and scrapbook paper! I think it's wonderful and I can't wait to make one of my own :)

I included this in a round-up I just finished.  If you are interested in more home decor projects using scrapbook or decorative paper go to:

DIY Home Decor - Make Rhinestone Covered Bottles

 I have been busy lately making pretty rhinestone covered bottles.  I am really happy with how they are turning out and it's SO EASY to do!   Have a look:

So what do you think??  The two bottles that have round tops, I picked up at Goodwill a while back for like $2.  The shorter square bottle had oil and reed diffusers in it... I think I got it as a gift and the other multicolored bottle was an empty Fletcher's Children's laxative bottle.

The rhinestones are actually resin but they look like REAL crystal ones to me! I got them super cheap on Ebay and I used a the GOOP brand glue (E6000, CRAFT and Goop) to glue the rhinestones on.  I had a little sample pack of the glues in smaller tubes.. they worked perfectly for this.  I used the tip of a skewer with some sticky on it to pick up the rhinestones and place them into the glue.  If you are interested in a more detailed tutorial go to:
