Make Your Own Desktop Accessories

You can make you own desktop accessories
out of items you might throw away.
Most of you are like me....
you hate to throw away coffee cans, 
bottles and jars.
Why fill our landfills with things that can be recycled?

I spray painted two coffee cans with a light pink....
 inside and out.
A Snapple bottle lid, a Smucker's jar and lid was sprayed a deep pink.
The lace on the Snapple bottles was white before I wrapped it around the salsa jar and sprayed it deep pink, too!
Be patient for at least a day and let all the stuff you sprayed dry really well.
Next take the lace off the jar and wrap it around the bottle and step back!
Now isn't that so pretty?

Wrap the coffee cans in coordinating fabrics or paper if you like.
I played with the wording on mine. I wrote the words, then sewed them on my machine to look like scribbled doodles. 

You can cover a book with your fabric and embellish with a doily....
no one will have a desktop like yours. That is one of the beauties of crafting!
Your creation is uniquely yours.

This wire basket came from the Dollar General all simple and plain....
Scraps of lace and ribbon, pieces of tulle and rick rack make it much prettier.

I covered a bit of cardboard with pink toile and made pins out of yo-yo's.
The cutie in the Dollar General frame is our grandson.

Hope I have inspired you to make your own desktop accessories....let me see them when you do....

Have an awesome week!
 Blessings, Audrey
