A little riddle for you.

When is a salt shaker NOT a salt shaker?


P1130185Take one little cut crystal salt shaker without the top.

P1130184Turn it upside down and glue a round clear stone to the bottom.  (these are the pretty stones they sell by the bagful at craft stores, used as vase filler)

P1130182

Add one thrifted hurricane vase, turned upside down; and glue the upside down salt shaker to the bottom of the hurricane.  (I used e6000 for this and gluing the stone to the shaker)

P1130187Put it all together and you have a pretty UPcycled cloche!

P1130186If you want to you can tie a piece of ribbon around the neck of the salt shaker to better disguise it.  Then NO ONE would ever guess what it was.  I kind of like it when people figure out my ‘secret tricks’ though.

P1130090

Here is another one that I made using a more ‘bell shaped’  vase.    The little crystal salt shakers are fairly easy to find at thrift stores.  Oftentimes they will even put several mis-matched ones together in a bag for a very LOW price.   Those are the ones I usually look for.  Always keep a small stash of them on hand.
