Use Silica Gel…
Put in carved pumpkins to prevent mold. Do not remove from packaging.
Do you want to know how to remove the printing on food containers? It’s easy! You need pure acetone (located in the beauty section near the finger nail polish removers), a rag, and a container…
In a dish pan, pour enough acetone on the rag to saturate it. (Make sure you are in a well ventilated area and are wearing gloves.)
Then wrap the rag around the container and let it sit for 3-5 minutes. It may take longer depending on what brand container you are working on. I found that Dannon, Great Value, and Kroger brand come off the easiest.
Check the container by rubbing the paint. If it wipes off, you are good to go! Just keep wiping! It’ll come right off. If it doesn’t come of easily, keep soaking. You may need to re-saturate your rag.
That’s it! You’ve got yourself a blank slate container ready for sprucing up. Check back later this week to see what we did with our containers.
Here’s a quick little project that uses materials you have around the house to create an easy to hide, easy to find hide-a-key.
Things you’ll need:
Empty pill bottle
Things to do:
1. Soak any labels off of the medicine bottle. A clear brown bottle works best because it blends into the soil color.
2. Add a generous amount of glue to the bottom of the bottle and press the pinecone into place.
3. Slip the key inside and attach the lid, bury, lid down in the ground in a handy place so that only the pinecone shows.
Never pay $12 for a wreath form at the craft store. Use a dollar store pool noodle and secure with duct tape!
