DIY Mosaic Tile Bird Bath – Man Vs. Pin – Pinterest Test #45

Let’s just get into it. A couple a few weeks ago, Justice commented, “This looks pretty swag.” Over 1800 of you agreed, which is a little ludicrous. If you don’t know what swag necessitates, Urban Dictionary characterizes it as “the most used word in the whole[ beep] universe.” Apparently, the committee is also necessitates Secretly We Are Gay. Who knew? The mosaic tile fowl bath, originally posted over on Me and My DIY, this thing is made out of DVDs. DV what? I belief I still have a few of those somewhere.

Oh yeah, here we go, House of 1000 Corpses, classic, Pineapple Express, Adventure Time, Womb Raider. Wait. Hold on, Assablanca? How’d these get in here? These aren’t mine. Corinne, are these yours? All right, keep moving, the directions say to take some scissors and cut the DVD in half. Then it kind of separates into two, so you remove the outer plastic layer, and then you take the reflective side and you cut those into small-scale pieces. All right, I did that, and it looks like[ beep ]. I cut them into smaller pieces, and they turned out as bad. I don’t want to glue these onto anything. All right, I’m going to try this out on some age-old Cds and realize if it gets any better. Katy Perry? Hold on. You’re not “re going away”. All right, these Cds are a little bit easier. No extra plastic layer to remove or cut into, but still they’re moving out like[ beep ]. It wasn’t until about 8 to 10 discs in that I recognized the whole secret is you’ve just got to cut these[ beep] things super precise, super slow. Merely then will it not look like[ beep ]. Applying this technique to the DVDs didn’t really help so much better, so I merely protruded to the CDs.

And eventually, things are looking up. A small-scale tip-off: Cutting CDs[ beep] suctions. Objective of tip-off. Hours afterward, I eventually had enough tiny, little Cd pieces to start work on my fowl bath. I got myself a good-sized saucer platter thing. I grabbed some heavy job cement and began adding Cd pieces one after one after one after one. Once I was finished with the bottom, I glued pieces at the edges and along the sides. What had to be nearly 18 hours later I was ultimately finished gluing[ beep] to this platter. I left it out to dry overnight, and the next morning busted out the grout. Now, I myself “ve never” employed grout, so I followed the trace out educations the best I could and intent up with, I hope, the right consistency. I don’t[ beep] know. Looks okay, I guess. Once mixed, I began to spread it onto the platter utilizing a putty knife, but that kind of sucked Then I stole this thing from the kitchen because that’s what they used in the pin, but that is actually wasn’t much better. It eventually came down to me merely utilizing my hands, which was the best option.

I filled in all the spaces, stimulated sure it was smooth, and then, with a damp cloth, mopped off all the Cd tiles. I feel like after I added the grout it muddled some of the color a little bit. That and I belief DVDs are a little bit more purple-y in color. Whatever the case, I think it searches awesome. I placed it in the downstairs garden-variety, added some water, and now to see if this thing actually works. Boom. Yeah it does. That is one swagalicious fowl bath. Those guys are having a bang. Four things: First thing, subscribe. ThreadBanger is about to reached thousands and thousands of[ beep] customers, and that’s just[ beep] insane. Second thing, like this video up. Even if you didn’t like the video. Who cares? It’s just a stupid button. Third thing, leave your pins in specific comments below so I know what the[ beep] I’m doing next week.

How to Make a Confetti Bowl – Part One

I had become preoccupied with this confetti container and is intended to make it and so I actually drew it and we are going to make one together now Tell me just tell you one thing about this confetti container I learned so much while making such container, number 1 it takes a long long time to meet meaning that it takes about a week so if you’re gonna meet this container you have to dedicate a week to it ok so I’m just shedding that out there is not a quick and fastest and most down and soiled simple one this actually takes some time and it also this project that i’m gonna keep working on because I am convinced that there’s more to this one for this program though let’s get started and then I’ll keep talking as we’re working.

There’s a lot that happens in it I decided to use a pizza casket as kind of a posses all wield seat I found that it helps me with catching the confetti it was a great region to capture the glue it was a great region to to be able to move my programme backward and forward so I used a pizza casket for that you’re also going to need confetti now the confetti that I bought I went this online this is actually kind of made out of newspapers like died newspaper if you can find tissue paper more tissue papery kind of confetti I think you would do better than I did but just telling you what’s out there you can meet your own confetti if you crave to you know it’s just gonna take a long time you are gonna necessary about a quart of this you’re gonna necessary a good extent of it i entail this is this is a goodly extent of confetti and it goes through it rely me the other thing you gonna necessary a goodly extent of is Mod Podge you’re gonna necessary a 16 ounce bottle for this so get yourself a 16 ounce bottle of Mod Podge you’re perhaps gonna run through about 12 ounces of it really giving you the heads up a couple bags you’re gonna necessary I find the better lane to apply Mod Podge is one of these leech brushes and for this programme you surely surely surely crave a leech clean you don’t crave a clean clean ok what I entail by that is a hairbrush you know not not a whisker clean but a clean that has bristles.

I’ve also got a couple little container now I’ve got a bowl for catching and putting Mod Podge in if I want to and also I’ve got this little bowl and “its going to be” truly handy when I scoop and sprinkle now I have a big container and this is one of the most important things because it is the catch all you need this to catch the confetti I’m also going to be using some canal videotape and I’m gonna be using the inside of a canal videotape bun this is what I’m gonna be using to meet my stand while I’m working on this you can use a vase or something like that but I felt that this is great because it impedes it low-toned and centered you can hold on to it I really felt this to be best available for me I went an exacto pierce now you don’t have to have this this is just for me when I sounds my bag but you are going to necessary scissors and I’ve got mine right now and you’re gonna necessary a glue firearm later on at the last stages of doing this this is kind of like a fix picture because you have to do this in stages and when I say it takes a week I entail it takes a week so the first thing we’re gonna do is we’re gonna blow up our bag you wanna blow it up about half of a bag length like so you don’t want to blow it up a really super super large-scale if you wanna do a bigger, tie it off if you want to do to a bigger container I would suggest a 16 ” balloon, this is an 11 ” balloon.

I’m gonna take that canal videotape bun that is the end of the bun and I’m actually gonna region my bag on top I’m gonna pull my end piece through and I’m gonna videotape it to the spool and the reason is because one of the things that I learned is as I was making this starts to get top heavy and when it gets top-heavy what it wants to do is flip all over your work space so literally I had this bag like flinging around my work space like confetti winging everywhere rely me it was quite a mess so I’m trying to save you a bit of a mess OK so I’ve gathered this this is the end I gathered it out and through I’m videotaping it to my bun now it stands nice and even OK ready to get chaotic? this is a recreation recreation skill you can do this with your babies it is a super super super super chaotic skill OK let’s get started first thing to do is take my Mod Podge and situated it in the container now so I can get to it because my and yes that’s a lot of Mod Podge but my clean is preferably large-scale and I can’t really proceed into my my Mod Podge,

With it so i’m gonna swarm it into this container okay now here’s what I learned don’t be avaricious with your Mod Podge you gotta be slathering it on there that’s why it’s kind of recreation with the babies really really truly get laid there don’t be shy don’t put only a bit on there and the other thing that I realized that I should let you know is I had tried it with glue and water it operates but not as well for some reason Mod Podge just really seems to be the produce that works really well for this now this is where because you’ve got this taped now you can collect this up slather this thing and I did try a technique depict in little slice and pertaining my confetti but I felt that is really was not the best of techniques what you really want to do is just cover the whole top fraction of your bag so that you’re making a container chassis situated that off to the side grab your container you need your bowl and this is where you’re gonna take your confetti and start dispersing it on you really want to go to town with this, this is where babies can have fun now there’s some little depressions now try to fill in the depressions with your confetti this is where.

I think if I had tissue paper confetti I would be doing better than applying this confetti that I have here really made to ensure that you got every bit of it clothed now you’re gonna need to set this aside and let it bone-dry for about 8 hours this is why I said that this takes time you can’t surge this because you really want this bed to be dry and solid before you set on your next bed.
