Bottle Houses of PEI

Inspiration strikes in the most unusual ways. Édouard T. Arsenault began to build these incredible bottle houses in 1980. He was 66 at the time and had received a postcard from his daughter of a glass bottle castle in British Columbia. Inspired to create his own bottle house, Édouard began collecting glass bottles from his community in Cap-Egmont, Prince Edward Island, Canada.

Light Bulb Decorations

These light bulb decorations are perfect for Christmas. The shape looks divine on a tree and the metallic silver is quite glamourous. We’re sure that everyone can find a burnt out light bulb or 2 lying around. Grab them, some spray paint and let’s get upcycling!

Halloween Spider Decorations

It feels like Halloween would not be complete without Halloween spider decorations. We decided to get super creative with these. Our spiders are made from wine corks and our spider web window displays are crafted from old windows. The hand spun spider webs are supported by loofah mesh! We love the results. Read further to find out how we did it.

Trinket Candlesticks

We really love market, secondhand and thrift shop hunting. It’s amazing what you can create with a small outlay of money and a bit of creativity. These trinket candlesticks are a perfect example. By combining cute, kitschy pieces with discarded candlestick bases you too can make some fun, statement candlesticks. In fact if you look hard enough in your garage you might even find that you already have everything required to make them.
