Gilded Luminary

Gilded Luminary Turn a bland, lackluster pushpin container into a gilded luminary.  Paint the container with liquid gold color.  Allow it to dry. With a hot glue gun, add  3 glass pearl beads as feet to the base. Place a tea light candle  in the luminary & enjoy the glow.  

DIY Embellished Pushpins

  A variety of buttons, beads, coins are hot glued to the head of the pushpins to create these cute office/ desk accessories.  Also, small silk flowers, charms, acrylic gems, old earrings, iPhone button stickers are few of the other choices to decorate the pushpins.
