Glass Angel Handmade Repurposed Upcycled Restyled DIY Home Decor at LilacsNDreams. Welcome everyone!
I haven’t gotten as far as I wanted to with my order of glass angels, but I have gotten them started. I first put the glass bases through the dishwasher to clean them well. After they were cleaned, I pulled them from the dishwasher, and then I had them sitting out for about a couple days before I attempted anything with them.
I was worried thinking I didn’t have the glass ornaments I wanted to use for their heads. With moving I wasn’t catching up to my supplies fast enough. I was starting to think I might have to use some light bulbs for their heads instead. I was fortunate enough, and happy to have found them before I was ready to assemble, and glue things.
I have different ribbons of purple coloring sitting out to choose for their wings, and to add with some embellishments I will use. I’m thinking of twisting silver pipe cleaner with the purple to make their halos. I don’t want all 3 angels to be completely identical. I will alter them slightly so that each one is unique for each person that will be receiving them.
Now that the weekend is over I should be home a little more to spend time working with these to complete them. I’m getting anxious to work with them, and get them completed for their new homes.
As everyone knows we have been moving, and taking our time with it too. We hadn’t decided completely what we were going to do with our home we are moving from. It’s a small fixer upper that we have done some work with. As of right now we have decided to clean it up, get things in order that are there, and at this time we are going to keep it. We discussed about me using it as my crafting, selling, and office area. It’s about 15 minutes from our other home. So, I wouldn’t really be going out of my way going there different times during the week to work on things. When I am done for the day I can leave it till I go back. Kind of like work stays at work, and home is home. In the spring we will look at things again, weigh in on how the housing market is doing then, and maybe determine more of what we want to do with it.
