While Mr. DEDS was away last week, I puttered a lot. Here is a result of one of my putterings.
A vase made out of sticks! Artfully placed next to a stone. (I collect stones with lines on them.)
I tied the sticks together with thin gold wire I found in my junk drawer. I added beads as I went along looping the wire around each stick. This is a shot from the BACK, where I put a few dabs of hot glue here and there to give it all a little suppport.
Come to find out, the sticks were still a little wobbly when stood up, so I glued a piece of black felt onto the back to hold everything in place.
I also added a few more wires here and there with more beads and I twisted some of the additional wire into spirals.
Fill with water and flowers I found along the side of the road and voila.
