I like to look at something and imagine what else it can look like.
For me, it has always been fun to think outside the box and come up with something no one would think about.
So the challenge was presented. My mom gave me glass light fixture globes and ask,
"What can you make with these?"
"Do you want them?"
Although I feel that some might think I am a junk collector, I only take things that I know I can do something with.
This was a challenge though. What can I make with these things? So yesterday I sat and pondered.
This is what I started with. I laid it on some paper so you can see it clearly.
I went to the dollar store and bought a candle holder/candy dish......
I really liked the orange paper that was under the first picture but the blue was more my colors.
So out came my trusty friend Mod........
I Mod Podged the paper to the inside of the globe so the color can be seen through the outside.
When dried, I painted the inside blue to match the paper.
This one will be hard to explain. I got a long piece of twine and pulled one strand to make a cord like this.
See how it looks rounded on the left. That is what I was going for. This will be the trim around the glass.
I hot glued it to the rim of the globe. I added seashells and iridescent beads to give it some sparkle.
I monkey glued the candle/candy dish to the bottom. Now the globe was ready to fill with Seashells!
I love the paper color coming through in a subtle way. It almost has a crackle effect.
It give a nice coastal touch to my decor.
It really was a change from light fixture to pedestal dish. It is a great summer display too!
After I was done with this I had an allergic reaction to the twine!
This is how it started and they became bigger as the night went on.
It wasn't all bad. Remember me telling you I went to the Organic Farm yesterday? Well this is what I got.
I wish you could smell them! My whole house smells of fresh strawberries! They are so sweet and perfect.
Nothing like a bowl of strawberries and creme.....Scrumptious!
Is your mouth watering yet?
