Vinyl Skull Charger and Candle

I love the chargers Michaels always has this time of year and last week they were 2 for $3. They come in the coolest colors and even though I thought I was early, black was all gone. Oh well. They still had the metallic chocolate brown!
The Cricut cartridge Wall Décor and More has a couple of great skull options. I used the plainer one since I knew I wanted to embellish it and cut it out using cream vinyl. Slapped that on the charger and then added a moustache from a package of moustache stickers I’d picked up for no particular reason.
Last week Michaels had all of their Recollections stickers and embellishments 50% off so I picked up a package of black swirly rhinestones. Two went on the skull’s head and two went on the rim of the charger. Easy peasy
I oopsed when I first cut the skull on my Expression and it wasn’t big enough. I didn’t want to throw away a perfectly good piece of vinyl but what to do?
 Why make a candle to go with my charger ‘course!
Mod Podged a black and white damask print scrapbook paper onto a glass candle, along with a taupe crackled scrap leftover from my altered bottles. Edged the top and bottom with K and Co self adhesive scrapbook stickers. Once the MP was dry, put the vinyl piece on and then added a rub on to the top. Kinda looks like a headband but it works. Embellished with some more rhinestone swirly thingies.
Finished off the top with a velvet ribbon scrap, twine, and a couple of stray beads.

BFF aka Blog Feature Friday#9: Food, Wine, and Mod Podge!

How did it get to be Friday already? Don’t know. Not complaining! Before we get all sugared up this weekend on Valentine’s treats ( chocolate of course!) it’s time for another:

This week, I’d like to introduce you to Katie from Food, Wine, and Mod Podge!
Food, Wine, & Mod Podge
Katie combines her love of all of these things into her blog. No, she doesn’t combine food, wine, and MP all together although I suppose if one has enough wine, anything could happen! No, Katie has her blog neatly organized into sections devoted to each of these. Let’s look at food first:

Wouldn’t these be perfect for Valentine’s Day:
meringues 4
peppermint chocolate meringues
Katie’s food section provides lots of delicious from scratch recipes with great pictures and step by step instructions. You will be hungry after scrolling through it!

But what’s good food without good wine? If you’re like me and a wine ignoramus, Katie will educate you as well as show you some more great recipes that use wine, and then…what to do with all the wine labels you have leftover. Hint. Don’t. Throw. Them. Away. She made this for her hubs for their anniversary out of wines they’ve shared. Awwww!

Ragu With Homemade Noodles…Eat This!

I put those instructions of what to eat vs make in case you’ve had too much wine.

Last but not least, Katie’s crafty and as you might have guessed, loves Mod Podge. What’s good food without some food themed décor? Katie did this recently using her Silhouette :

And where would a crafty cook and wine connoisseur be without a wonderfully Mod Podged recipe book?

So go visit Katie for some wonderful inspiration and just remember you drink or cook with the wine and use the Mod Podge!
