These wonderful SEWER snakes were given to me by a neighbor. Don't you love it when people look at some thing they clean out sewer drains with and think of you??? EEK! I think it's a good thing!!! OKAY! In this case I know it is! J
SO! What do you do with this giant long "spring"???
Why you make flowers and POOP tails. Think cat tails made from giant springs that go down a pipe to move the stuck poop out! EWWWWWW again!!!!!
Okay,,, so these were fun to build. This is similar to what I built years ago ,,, just a different take on a flower for your garden made from "crap". OH! I never realized before that my craptastic stuff would really be made from ,,, okay ,,, here's a few pictures!!!!
|A close up. I guess you could call these shit disturbers!|
|I used a portion of one snake to give the stalk of this flower a different texture from my normal rebar.|
|Close up. |
Shower head, water knob, tin roof sheeting, rebar, sewer snake.
At each end of the snake is a connector. There are 2 different types. This way you can connect 2 snakes together for a longer length.
|Close up. I know! It's dirty. |
One week in our rain and it'll be clean!!!
|Another flower. A fancy metal plate, metal roofing, a part off the underside of a car, a motor, sewer snake, rebar.|
|Close up! You can't see it very good in the picture, but, the motor is mostly brass and copper. It will develop a wonderful patina outdoors!|
|My monsters were missing for a while tonight. They are best buds and on top of a cabinet in the bathroom! ON MY CLEAN TOWELS!!! Juliet, left, is getting big! Macs is her protector!|
By the way ,,, I cut out the metal roofing into flower shapes with a plasma cutter. No, I didn't clean up the edges. Yes, they are a little sharp in a few places. If I cleaned them up they wouldn't have that same look around the edges. I really like that look. AND Trust me here ,,, the birds will love this stuff to land on anyway!
OKAY! These will be at the Marysville Garden show coming up Saturday April 13th! More pictures of what's coming as I get stuff made! FINALLY!!!!
Have a good one and thanks for stopping by! Shell
