DIY Christmas Corked Seasonings Day 4

It's Day 4 and we are almost there!
Tomorrow will be the last day of our 5 Days Of Christmas.  Today is all about seasonings (well, at least 4 of!) 
I've chosen 4 spices to use for my Corked Seasonings project.  Be creative and use my ideas to inspire you to create your very own designs.  Have fun "just being YOU" and give it a try!

I share what I used to create my designs for these spices and I know that they are going to make the best gifts for my friends and family! This is "my ME day" as you can see in the background of my photos and I had fun "just being ME"  all day long!!

Christmas Corked Seasonings


Here's What You Need:
-4 CLEAN small craft test tubes
-4 seasonings
-embellishments (glitter, charms, gems, Washi tape)
-red permanent markers (thick tip)
-4 small grommet screws
-clear tape
-silver stretch string
-glue stick

1.  Shabby Chic (Minced Onion)
Simply add some stick on jewelry gems to the outside of dry tube and then fill tube with minced onion.  Next seal cork on outside with clear tape, screw grommet in cork and add/tie string to grommet.  Lastly, handprint the title of the seasoning on the bottom of the tube with a permanent marker.  Add some Washi tape to top and bottom of tube and you are done! Let set for 24 hours. 

2.  Silver & Gold (Oregano)
Fill jar with oregano and seal with tape.  Using a glue stick, adhere glue to the bottom of the tube.  Sprinkle glitter on bottom and shake excess off.  Now, using silver metal letters, string silver thread through each letter and adhere glue to the side of tube, placing your string of letters on glue straight across the tube. Wrap excess string on both ends, around tube and glue.  Insert grommet into cork, add silver string and you are done!! Let dry for 24 hours.

3.  Candy Cane (Sea Salt)
Simple to do!  Add sea salt LAST.  Wrap thin decorative tape around tube in the form of a candy cane.  Using permanent red ink marker, color the entire tube making sure you stay above the tape.  Let ink dry for 15 minutes.  Remove tape and you have a design that looks like it took hours to create!  Now add your sea salt and seal cork with clear tape.  Insert grommet to cork, add string and you have completed this design!  Let dry for 24 hours.

4.  Jersey Charm (Chili Powder)
Oh, I went back home in my mind when I created this one!  It's all about the Jersey Shore!  This is my home and when I think of HOME I think of the shore.  How I love the beach and sand.  I was inspired to create this corked seasoning with some Oceanside charms I found in the craft store.  I used sunglasses, flip flops and some beach stuff!  They stick on easily with glue and the beads represent the water and the sand (ok, so we don't have white sand but we do have blue water sometimes..haha...I can dream a little...LOL!!). Let set for 24 hours.

See you tomorrow....;-)!
