I'm now more convinced than ever that you can alter anything! This was clear glass from top to bottom - picked it up cheap at the local Goodwill store.
I added blue and clear crystals from Hobby Lobby. And I tossed in a bag of metal diecut star of davids that I picked up at McGuckin's hardware this week. Shook it well and filled it with oil. It really works!
For the base, I used acrylic paint and dabbed it on with a square of cut 'n dry foam. It goes on quite smooth, no streaks. Paint inside the glass and it looks pearl from the outside. Then I used my bejewler and made this star from Creative Crystals flat backed swarovsky crystals. Cameras just do not show the bling!
Finally, I tied a ribbon of white silk around the neck of the lamp. It truly is a gorgeous addition to my Hanukkah lights collection!
May Jehovah light each step of the path of your life!
