Day 2: Craft Day!

It's Saturday, aka craft day!  I decided to try my hand at the trash-to-trasure example from yesterday:


the recycled bottle cell phone charging station.
















 For this project you'll need the following supplies:

  • a bottle destined for the recycle bin
  • 1/4 yard of scrap fabric
  • mod podge
  • X-acto knife
  • sandpaper
  • outlet cover
  • sharpie
  • paintbrush


To create this charging station, cut your plastic bottle in half, you're creating a small cup.

Cover this cup with your scrap fabric using your paintbrush and mod podge.  

On the back of the cup, add a long piece of fabric to attach to he outlet cover. (seen below)
 While that dries, cover the outlet cover with the same fabric.  Follow my tutorial here.

Once both pieces are dry, cut the fabric extension into 3 pieces and cut out the middle piece- you'll be left with 2 strips on either side to adhere to the outlet cover.

Place the cover face down on a surface that is level with the cup and mod podge the pieces together, below.


Allow to dry, plug in your phone and you're done!
