Summer Fun with Accent It All!!


It's perfect for indoors and outdoors!

Perfect to change out your decor to fit the season, a party theme, special occasion or just because!!

Today we have two more fun summer projects to share with you! Designer Ania Lexander made summer glass votive recycling glass jars (love that!). Then was inspired to let her daughter make her own! Perfect summer craft for both adults and children! Designer Grace Tolman has created a sweet treat container. Maybe you have an upcoming themed birthday party...imagine how cute these would look hanging on the chair backs for each party guest!

Once you start working with Accent It All...you too will find the ideas just pour forth!

Summer Light
GlueArts Designer: Ania Lexander


Not groundbreaking, but hey, it's a cute, quick and easy way to add a little summer to your back yard or gardenparty, or for the late summer evenings with good friends and a glass of wine or two..

Just save various glass jars (from salsas, sauces or jam and such), wash'em and dress them up with Accent it All! smile.gif

If you own a silhouette or the likes, consider doing intricate doilyish patterns - I bet that'll loo truly pretty in the evenings!


Glue Art Supplies:
Accent it all (Wild Blue Yonder)
Hot glue

Other:
Martha Stewart butterfly punch
Empty glass jar

When Ania posted her project I commented to her how this would make an excellent project for kids. Provide the tools and supervision and they too can make some fun summer lights to enjoy for their room our outdoors. Keep things safe and use the new battery operated tea lights! Here is Ania's adorable daughter with a remake of it just for kids!!

7. Layer the shapes and add to the treat container. The beauty of the vinyl is that they’re self-adhesive and can be treated like a sticker. How fun is it to make your own stickers from vinyl?!

8. Trim a strip that is about 1” from striped paper and add a punched border to one edge.

9. Adhere the strip to the top of the inverted cone using some Perma Tac. Since the cone is an odd shape, the strip won’t lay flat onto the surface, make sure you adhere it slowly, guiding it with your hands.

10. Punch out a 1 ¾” circle from orange vinyl. Layer it onto the fruit paper and trim using a decorative scissor. Add a letter to personalize the treat container.

  15. I left a comment just few minutes ago, but don't think it went through.. I had said how I love all the ideas given for the Accent It Vinyl, and that I have a friend who sells vinyl lettering already made; but I would love an opportunity to make my own. Thank you for the opportunity to win Glue Arts Accept It Vinyl!
