I am addicted to Pinterest

My good friends Keli Jones and Kris LeRoss got me hooked on  It is really something that is so very cool and such a time suck.  I know that I spend way more time on Pinterest looking at cool things that I can make and do then I actually do make those things.  My sister found these really cool Solar Lamps made out of mason jars and promptly made hers.  I just now officially finished my "first" Pinterest project.   Woo Hoo!!!!   

Here is the inspiration picture and link from Pinterest.

And here is my finished project.

They were extremely easy to make.  I just had to find the jars, some cheap garden solar lights (got some $2 ones at Wally World), some Glass Frosting Spray Paint and a little raffia.  The inspiration piece used an adhesive glue to attach the solar lights to the lid but I just dug into my trusty scrapbook supplies and used my Terrific Tacky Tape and it worked like a charm. 

Now I just need to take a picture this evening when the sun goes down to see the real effect.  I will post a pic later.

  1. OMGosh! I am addicted to pinning too! I made a rug out of old t- shirts for my first project but I have about 100 more things I wanna try. It's nice to know I'm not the only one in need of a 12 step program here. :)
