“I’m seeing spots! The good kind. Beaded details let you re-create and redecorate all at once a la our modern-day prince of pottery, Jonathan Adler. Have fun with this simple, design-inspired decorative project — it’s the perfect way to repurpose empty cans, bottles, and containers without dropping a small fortune on pretty porcelain. P.S. Puffy Paint will totally bring you back to your early art project days!”

Invite guests over to celebrate (and marvel at your DIY prowess) with a free craft night invitation or a birthday for her invitation.
