DIY 6 Nebula Galaxy Bottle and Jewelry Tutorials. Roundup from truebluemeandyou.tumblr.com.
Have you seen these all over Etsy or on fashion blogs? Most links lead to scape sites and not the actual tutorials – whereas my links go to the original source. These are so cheap to make because all you need is water, cotton, paint-dye-ink, glitter and a container.
