Create Mini Stained Glass Decorations with Dew Drops!
I don't know about you, but I just LOVE The Robins nest Dew Drops!
They come in all shapes and sizes and plenty of mouth watering colors!
Recently, in the studio, the light from the window came in and hit these bottles in just the right way, inspiring me to make these stained glass beauties!
To get started, you'll need an assortment of Dew Drops.
Strong adhesive that dries clear and won't come undone if the window gets hot from outside sun.
(I used clear tacky glue)
Small hole punch, scissors, transparent thread, suction cups.
Clear product packaging.
Cut pieces from clear packaging.
If you are unsure what design to do, trace the packaging on to paper and draw a simple design underneath to use as a template.
Apply your adhesive and add the dew drops. Here I experimented with Tombo glue which does not dry as clear as I would have liked.
So for the rest I coated the entire packaging piece with clear adhesive and just played around with the colors of the Dew Drops.
I like how the glue dried with little bubbles. Reminds me of blown glass.
Thanks for coming by and see you next week!
