nail polish + recycled lightbulbs = fun and fabulous. I loved this idea for decorating the yard for a Christmas in July party. You could also use glass paint for these which would be cheaper and faster than the nail polish. Too much fun!
My dad showed me how to do this & I wear mine with my wedding band. It's cool, because the wording on the edge of the coin ends up in the middle of the ring! Do you have a quarter from 1964 or before? If you do, it is made of silver. You can turn that coin into a nice silver band using a spoon, a drill, and a metal file. (And no, it's not illegal.)
Cute purse out of an old sweater! ,Interlined with a white felt sort of stuff and then fabric lined. Note the fabric links to the handles. Not sure about how sturdy this is. But actually this could be quilt a small purse rather than a bag.
