Toward the end of last week, I did get the chance to work on this fun project, Shamrocks in a Bottle! I had the idea in my mind, and I was planning on making some kind of paper shamrocks, but then I found out that The Wood Connection had some thin wood ones that were just right size, so I used those instead. I love the way they turned out! I wouldn't have been able to use glitter if I hadn't have used the shamrocks that I did.
I didn't take step by step pictures, but I will try to tell you how I did these. I had a cream soda bottle that I took the labels off of, and it left the bottle sticky. Since I was going to cover it with paper anyway, I didn't even try to wash the sticky off. I just used it to adhere my paper! I measured how tall I wanted my paper, cut it, inked the top and bottom edge, and then wrapped it around. The best part? I could take the paper off and use the bottle for something else if I chose to.

this project. I love that washi tape is so easy to use to dress things up!
St. Patrick's Day? I love to, and we also love to have Corned Beef and Cabbage for dinner that day. I have always decorated for St. Patrick's Day, but I realized yesterday that Easter is only two weeks after St. Patrick's Day. I guess the Easter decor won't be out for long this year.
