I had a hand full of left over whiskey barrel bands and I was going to make one more orb with them. Then I thought,,, been there, done that. SO??? What to do with them. Then I remembered Beth at We Do Art gave me a bunch of beads she made and didn't like. I LOVE THESE BEADS! They are nasty! YUM! They didn't quite stay round. The glaze didn't work like she wanted. O.M.G. They are absolutely perfect .... TO ME!!!
So, here's what I did with some of them.
|I have this thing for funky metal. It's every where in |
my yard, garage, shed and even in my house!
|So I found some of my favorite round pieces. |
|Then I put a few beads between pieces to give me|
almost equal space between circles.
|I was running low on beads. So I found some thing |
with more bulk to fill in the middle.
|Some thing colorful and whimsical to|
fill in the middle.
|This little watering can is so sweet! The ring |
around it is from an old world globe.
|It's solid brass and it looked new. SO! I spray |
painted it with several layers of brown.
I love stuff like this! More art than craft. I've needed to do some real work. Many more to come.
Thanks so much for stopping by! Shell
