Cute, right? As soon as I saw it, I emailed her and ask her if I could make one and post about it sometime. (If you're going to re-create another bloggers project and post about it, the polite thing to do is get permission and give them well-deserved credit for inspiring you!)
I recognized that plastic container Linda used right away. Do you? If not, you'll have to go HERE to Linda's post to see what it is, but...I'll bet most of you have had at least one and will probably get another, or two. Any see through container with a lid will work.
My original plan was for a Christmas candle, but now that "deck weather" is here, I decided to make an outdoor floating candle gift.
Small and Medium aquarium gravel
See-thru plastic container with lid
Brown Craft Paper & Button (not shown)
This went together so fast and easy. All I did was put the small gravel in the bottom, and a thin layer of medium gravel over that. Then I sprinkled in a few beads for some sparkle. Next, using double-stick tape, I fastened a piece of pretty ribbon around the outside. My floating dragonfly candles came from Crate & Barrel but I'm beginning to see all kinds of pretty ones everywhere, now that summer just around the corner.
I also "cuted up" a little box of matches to go along with this gift by just covering a matchbox with some brown craft paper then adding a ribbon and a button.
Now... put the lid on it, give it to a friend and tell them, "Just add water." A cute, fun, functional and easy gift, totally inspired by an awesome blogger, Linda at With a Blast!'
Thank you Linda....you totally rock!!
