I really love what this Etsy seller does with glass and upcycled items of all kinds. This shop has a variety of stunning decor items made from reclaimed wood, glass etc.


Sea glass effect mason jars
I have always loved the sea glass look and it’s so simple to accomplish it with Elmer’s glue and a bit of paint. This would be a great start for a garden light project, or anything where you want to capture the soothing essence of sea glass.

This simple tutorial turns left over spaghetti sauce or pickle jars (in our house anyway) into something useful and beautiful.  A simple drawer pull and some paint and you have the beginnings of a beautiful hostess gift, storage jars, makeup containers – whatever you can imagine.

How cute is this? The lid is remade into a tissue dispenser and the jar is painted.  Very clever.

What a gorgeous way to create your own home decor for Christmas (or any other holiday really using similar techniques).  Love these – simple, elegant, with a comforting warm glow.

garden chandelier made with baby food jars

Who knew something so lovely could be created using baby food jars?  I adore this garden chandelier.  Very clever.  The original tutorial is not available, the link I followed redirected to the HGTV channel, but it’s still a great visual inspo.

How adorable is this craft project.  Click the image to be taken to a tutorial.  Little ornaments are glued into the jars, lights added and a ribbon and voila – a lovely tree decoration.

I’d do this with a battery operated LED myself so that you could place it anywhere.  I can imagine doing similar projects of a non-christmas variety also.
