Welcome to my NEW BLOG!

For many years my projects could be found at my previous blog - www.fatcatcreations.blogspot.com. Since my business has evolved and is now known as Cindi McGee - Behind These Eyes™ instead of Cindi Bisson - Fat Cat Creations - I thought this was the perfect time to launch a new blog. Since I've been on this creative journey for over 16 years - I have a LOT of project links out there in cyberworld! If you are looking for a particular project you have found on Pinterest, Facebook, FaveCrafts, HomeTalk, Twitter, etc. and the link is not working for you, please feel free to email me at cdjb11@yahoo.com and I'll be sure to get you the new link to the instructions. Have a creative day and remember to DARE TO BE DIFFERENT!

Vintage Soda Bottle Lamp


The kitchen at our lake cottage is decorated in a retro style.  I made vintage bottle cap cabinet knobs, we have vintage soda bottles on display, vintage soda signs, etc.   I wanted to create a small accent light to add to the kitchen - and the etchall® Ligthen Up kit was the perfect solution.  I could use one of our vintage bottles as the base, and add some “bottle caps” to the shade, along with some metallic fabric to mimic the chrome on some of our other retro kitchen accessories.

Materials: 

etchall® Lighten Up Kit 
Fairfield® Oly*Fun™ - Silver Metallic 
Beacon 3-in-1 Adhesive™
Scissors
Printed vintage soda bottle cap images 
Vintage soda bottle 
Red gross grain ribbon - 1/4”

Instructions: 

Print off vintage soda bottle cap images (I found mine on various sources on the internet - just copied and pasted to resize as needed to print).  Cut out each cap. 

Trace template from Lighten Up Kit onto silver metallic Oly*Fun fabric.  Cut out.

Arrange bottle caps on silver fabric and use 3-in-1 Adhesive to mount.  



Trace top of screw on lid onto silver fabric and cut out, mount to top of lid.  Mount red ribbon to outer edge of lid.  



Insert batteries, screw lid to top of shade.  Click button on inside and set lamp shade on top of vintage bottle and you have a cute retro accent lamp.  This would also make a fun night light. 

Here's the link to my cabinet knobs....
