Patio Party Lights

My patio lights were so simple, and believe it or not, they were super inexpensive to make. I found the paper lanterns at Pier I and they are easy to hang anywhere with the light kits that double as the hanger.

I simply took Aleene's Crystal Clear Tacky Spray glue and adhered circles of polka dotted and plaid tissue paper to the white lanterns to jazz'em up.

I couldn't leave them alone, and just had to add ribbon streamers to the bottoms. Love it!

Eclipse Saga/Twilight Jewelry Box

If you are a Twilight fan, and can't wait for Eclipse to premier on June 30th, you'll love this jewelry box with the hidden photo of Edward and Bella that I decoupaged on the inside with Collage Pauge.

I took discarded mannequin hands and glued them to the top of the box after I painted it and rubbed a bit of silver paint on the edges. I glued metalic beads to the bottom with Liquid Fusion

I covered a glass apple that I found at the Dollar Store (yeah, the DOllar StOrE!) with Tulip® Glam-It-Up!™ Iron-On Crystals™. I know, they're for ironing to fashions, but they were just what I needed to make the apple look like it mysteriously fell from a mystical world to the feet of Bella.

I love how it turned out, and how great the apple glued into the center of the hands.
