Dollhouse Miniature Salt and Pepper Shakers

This week for Trash to Treasure Thursday our project is almost a non-project. These are so easy because all you do is locate the right item and they can be ready to use.

I know a lot of us already know about this one but I'll bet there are just as many out there that haven't heard about it. And this project can't be simpler, you just need to find what the package calls “bullet clutch” earring backs. I got mine at Joann Fabrics for just a dollar or two. I also probably have a bunch at the bottom of my jewelry box too but I wanted to check what the name was and I can always use extra earring backs.

They do come in both the silver color and a gold color and I am sure they could be painted with either an enamel paint (like the ones sold for models) or with some nail polish.

There really isn't much I can say about this project except that it is another of the perfect examples of a Trash to Treasure in that it is already there to use and most of us can find them easily.

Join us next week for another fun project.
