The time HAS COME!!! #SwapItLikeItsHot, folks! A quick recap… Nine of my bloggy friends and I and were in kahoots to send each other fun, unexpected, flea market and thrift store finds. Nothing more than $10-15. We added a degree of difficulty by specifying a material: wood, metal, glass, ceramic or fabric. Fast forward a few weeks to today and we’re all sharing our fun repurposed items!! After chatting with everyone for so long, I can’t wait to see what magic everyone made with their goodies!
Wanna see what loveliness yours truly worked? I received my fabric items from the amazing Danielle at 2 Little Superheroes. She gave me LOTS of options which was a problem. So. Many. Ideas!
After a failed attempt at making a fun fabric necklace, I landed on this cool project. If you like the looks of this, go HERE and check out the tutorial I followed. Lisa from The Red Thread was way more articulate than I could ever be so go show her some love.
I cut this plain jane jersey knit pillowcase into strips for this project and was able to weave my way into two adorable little containers.
I nested a glass ramiken in the smaller one and will use it as a fun hors d’oeuvres bowl or something. Olives or nuts or candy or dip maybe.
The taller one is holding a plastic water bottle that I cut the top off of and I can use it to hold flowers or pens and pencils.
I love the color and the texture of these containers! I used two strips of fabric for the taller container and then 3 strips for the smaller bowl… I’d love to experiment with a thicker coil to see what else I could make!
Danielle also sent over this red, white and blue, scarf which was too good to pass up for some festive 4th of July decor.
Just like I did for these plates, I used Mod Podge to cover a $1 vase from Goodwill. Because the fabric is on the outside, I can use this for flowers OR just to corral summer party favors.
So those are my #SwapItLikeItsHot transformations. I have one more AMAZING piece of fabric that I have plans for, but I needed to do a little more intel before sharing the results of that with you. Mysterious, much? (Update: I made THIS with it!)
Now comes the good part. Go check out what everyone else came up with! I mailed something to Melody at My Passion For Decor and if the sneak peak she sent me is any indication, you’re going to be amazed. It’s good, y’all!
