Canvas Corp Brands has a regular challenge for the Creative Crew. It is to create something quick and quirky from your home or studio. This week the item was…nail polish.  I had a color that I don’t really like…so, I used that one! 🙂

I tried several/many ways to adhere the sisal to the glass bottle…hot glue, E6000, and Aleene’s Tacky Glue…NONE of these worked.  Then I tried Glue Dots® – Permanent…and my project was saved!
