(this is a Random Acts of Craftiness post – promoted by Erin of His & Hers fame…)
October’s Challenge was to use Odds and Ends From the Hardware Store… Well, I shopped but couldn’t find any ends I wished to craft with; but was pretty sure I had quite a few odds to choose from in the garage.
Yup – here’s an odd:
“What is it?” my oldest asked.
It’s a little too chunky for a bracelet…
it does say FOOD WASTE DISPOSER…
(He’s studying to be an engineer, so it gave me a giggle that he didn’t know what a flange is… Guess that means he couldn’t make a living as a plumber, huh?)
Another of the “odds” I found in the garage was this chunk of wood leftover from a headboard upcycle project I cut off months ago. (My hoarding needs an intervention… but that’s another topic…)
The last of the “odds” came from my sewing/craft/junk room. These glass marbles/stones have been used in the aquarium, cement stepping stones, wind chimes, candles – you name it, I tried it there.
So, I painted the little wood piece white and then glued a few stones here & there – TA - DA! My finished project:
Well, when looking at the back side of the flange
it reminded us of this
which is one of our favorite parts of this
whenever we are here
I was needing something to complete the tableaux.
(In case you were wondering, the plug is holding the picture in the frame…)
…and one more time from the front…
(because I ♥ these boys forever!)
