    My 99Cent Store Creations

    Advertisements
    Let me preface this by saying sorry if the pictures are huge, I'm too lazy to resize them.

    Today I made three decorative Christmas trees using poster board (35cents) from the px and tissue paper, ribbon and garland from the 99 Cent store. Pretty happy with the results. We don't have a whole lot of holiday decorations so I've been trying to make stuff inexpensively.



    The little one has a little plastic jewel at the top.

    And last night I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut a monogram to put on six 99cent store glasses using Armour Etching cream.



    Cheap and yet fancy. Love it.

    Thanks. It's my new favorite store. Especially because of the glass selection. I've made two cake stands using candle holders and plates. I have another one to make but I want to spray paint it before assembling. The new one has a sundae dish base instead of the candle stick. Might etch a design onto the other two stands' plates. Haven't decided yet.

    Is the etching cream easy to work with? I've been wanting to try it.

    Also check out dollarstorecrafts.com. I freaking love that site!
    Where are we going and why are we in a handbasket?

    Looks great. I love the glass etching. Was it easy? I've always wanted to try it.

    Very easy. I need to buy more. I almost didn't have enough for the 6 cups.
