Jewel Glass Bottles
Here’s a quick craft for you. I wouldn’t put anything edible in them, since I don’t know if the paint is non-toxic. You could put some homemade bath salts or something like that in these and give them as gifts. You could print out a photo on clear decal plastic and put a photo on there of an  butterfly, animal, fairy, flower or other plant, etc. Then add the color and/or squiggles or dots on the rest of the bottle.

An easy nature craft. Grab some cardboard, a photo, glue, a pine cone, small dried peas, beans or seeds and a bit of ribbon. Assemble in a few minutes. Easy peasy. The pine cone ornaments look like old vintage ones. If you don’t have any of those, use a real pine cone, just paint it white and antique it with gold paint.

Gorgeous! Who needs the real thing with these (and some rose essential oil) around? Make some of these out of felt and sew them onto a sweater or top.

oh my gosh!! I’m so making these!!

I love this look! But I don’t wear high heels so I would do it on a lower shoe. And I’m not very good at painting, so I’m going to have to turn it into a Quick Craft for you. Just use real feathers, they don’t have to be peacock feathers. Mod Podge them onto the shoe and add a few more coats on top to protect the feathers. It’s easy and it can be made in minutes. The idea is from what is fast becoming my favorite German blog. Click on photo for German photo tutorial on painting them. If you’re feeling particularly energetic, you can use an online translator to translate it.

I love this! It’s so pretty and simple to make. You could do this easily even if you’re not very crafty. It would be a great last minute gift. The tutorial for this is in German, but it’s so simple, the pictures alone would have been enough. The only thing I would add, is when spray painting, several light coats instead of fewer heavy coats keep it from getting drips and blobs. That may be mentioned in the tutorial, but I don’t know because I don’t read German.
Oddly enough, this is the second time I have posted a project in German. They are from 2 different blogs, too. Maybe German crafters are just really good at using pictures that don’t need words.

No Sew Baby Overalls Purse
I would recommend sewing the bottom of this together for sturdiness. It’s a quick craft and a quick gift you can make in minutes either way. Click on the photo for the project.
