A Neat Redo on a Terra Cotta Wine Cooler


Yes I do mean a neat redo! I went to Hobby Lobby a while back and they were trying to get sell a bunch of Terra Cotta Wine Coolers that they had been using to hold there florals. They had changed out the whole department and were selling the coolers for $1 a piece. Score!! I bought four because I thought once they were fixed up in some way that they would make a cool gift. Here’s the beginning:

I painted the top of the cooler with paints and then got busy mixing up some Sakura Crystal Lacquerhttp://www.sakuracraft.com/ with Bronze Pearl Effects Terri Sproul Mixershttp://www.sakuracraft.com/.sakura hobby craft 5-10-12 041 Wow, isn’t this just yummy looking? Well you know me, I couldn’t just leave things like that so I mixed up some Sakura Crystal Lacquerhttp://www.sakuracraft.com/ with Violet Pearl TS Mixers and also mixed up my own version of Green Pearl by using Citrine Pearl and Tanzanite Blue Pearl Terri Sproul Mixershttp://www.sakuracraft.com/. Then I added some grapes and leaves to the sides of the Wine Cooler and look at this:

Oh my goodness doesn’t that just look super? I love how this project turned out and I think this wine cooler will make a fantastic gift for someone don’t you? I know I’m impressed with the way the Sakura 3D Crystal Lacquer and the Terri Sproul mixershttp://www.sakuracraft.com/ work so well together.

Oh my goodness, what a transformation. These are just fabulous! What a job you did. I think you should have bought a few (several) more. Have a wonderful day.

I found them at my Hobby Lobby for $0.50! I bought 8 and am going to paint them for Christmas gifts. This makes me happy that someone else did it too!
