If so ,,, don't throw out the old one after it's replaced.
|I have this garbage can full of copper scraps |
in my back yard.
|I have a 5 gallon bucket full of bits and pieces|
AND many copper joints!!!
|I picked this up at the recycle center. See the T joint on |
the left end. I needed some of those for tomorrows project.
SO! I cut it off then drilled a hole where the arrow points ...
|This could be your old water faucet.|
I drilled the hole, poked a wire through it,
added a crystal, wrapped the other end of the
wire around the pipe until I used it all up. Stuffed
it on top of a piece of 1/4" smooth bar.
|Here's the same idea, just different :)|
Drill the hole, poke the wire through.
|I had to remove the handle to |
make a hole for the wire to come through.
|Ready to add the crystal.|
|I like the bend in this faucet.|
|Drip, Drip, Drip.|
|The larger copper wire through the faucet was too |
large for the hole in the crystal. No problem.
Just use a smaller gauge wire for it.
If you give this a try and get stuck. Just drop me a comment and I'll help where I can!
Tomorrow (I hope!) ... a sink, copper and flowers! Real flowers!
If you're in the area Saturday afternoon and evening don't forget about the Everett Art Walk (starts at 3 pm) and the wine tasting (starts at 4 pm) at We Do Art. I'll be there after 5! There's a band playing next door at the White Buffalo Saloon at 8 pm!!! Hope to see ya there!
Have a good one and thanks for stopping by. Shell
