Get Your Glitter On

The past few days, we used nail polish as paint. Throwing it in the trash or drain is a major blah to the environment, so crafting is a more TADA! alternative. Once the nail polish is consumed, it's time to get creative with the bottle.

I cleaned the bottle using nail polish remover: pour liquid half-way into the empty nail polish bottle and replace cover. Let it stand over night, swishing every so often to get into the corners. Pour out the liquid onto newspaper, allow to dry, and discard. The bottle should be rid of polish, but if there's any left, use a skewer or bent paper clip to clean it out. Allow the bottle to sit out overnight until completely dry and free of any polish remover scent.

Additional things we'll need: glitter and mini craft corks

Once the bottle is dry, pour in the glitter using a funnel fashioned out of paper. Plug in the cork. 

Decorate with ribbon and a matching message. 

Tuck into a box and mail to a friend to 
remind her how fabulous she is!

Have a shiny weekend, friends!
