This project includes several things I have been hoarding. That shimmery shiny Hotel California Tequila bottle, the cork & light socket kit to convert a bottle to a lamp, an orange zipper and that big black silky flower. It was nice to get all of them combined into a beautiful useful project!
Let me show you the shade first. That big black silky flower was a gift from Yvonne Yam, the LESSology owner! I paired up a bunch of pretty blooms with some leaves that I cut on my Big Shot out of recycled cardboard covered with metallic duct tape! love that shimmer and those bold colors!
I used my orange zipper as trim! It gives a neat little patten at the top! Can you see it hiding under the sparkly ribbon? I had intended at one point to twist it into a flower, but it was really stiff so it got packed into my stash! I bet you have one hiding somewhere too that you could use in our zipper challenge!
I also upcycled a little heart dangle from a necklace that I covered in alcohol ink! Check out those duct tape leaves again. I'm really quite excited about those!
And here is the pretty bottle! THE MAN got this Tequila for Father's Day and we shared it with his Dad so it's nice to keep the memory in a lamp! Besides...gold label ahd shimmery bottle....LOVE IT!
I have really been enjoying this project! See how prett it is with it turned on? The flowers almost glow!
Hope you get a chance to play along with us!
