Once upon a time, I bought a ton of small ramekins, intending to use them for what turned out to be an overly-ambitious project. I discovered that I didn't actually want to put so much effort into figuring out how to make that project (we're lazy here, remember?), so the box of ramekins remained on a shelf. Recently, I decided to pull them down and use them for decoration. In this post, I make two Spring-themed ramekins using items I bought at the Dollar Tree to decorate them.
First, cut a piece of the burlap ribbon to fit your ramekin. This may involve cutting lengthwise.
Next, use tiny dabs of glue to hold the end pieces in place. You don't want it unraveling on you!
Secure the burlap in place on the ramekin using dabs of glue.
Allow the glue to dry for a few moments.
Tie a length of the jute cord around your ramekin, securing the strings in place with small dabs of glue. Don't glue down the knot yet!
Slide a colorful button between the cord knot and the burlap, securing in place with a little glue.
And now you're done with your burlap ramekin!
Blue Mesh Ramekin
Cut a length of blue mesh down to size in length and width. Attach it at the top of the ramekin with a line of hot glue. By attaching it only at the top, we create the pretty look of a free-flowing "skirt" around the ramekin.
Add a length of diamond wrap at the top, securing it with dabs of glue.
Tie a length of jute cord around the diamond wrap just below the first row of "diamonds". Secure the knot in place with a dab of glue.
