It's beachy and cheap! 2 of my favorites
Most of my inspiration comes out of the blue and fast, if I have something in my head I must do it NOW.
I woke up with the crafting bug eating away at me and soon decided I wanted to make a 3-D letter.
My 1st thought was of making a letter 'C' and to glue EC coins all over it, like those I made the earrings out of. I quickly changed my mind to doing the ampersand instead... and after playing around with the coins I decided that it wouldn't look quite as sleek as I wanted so I scratched that and turned to my reliable twine.
|I sketched out an ampersand on the cardboard which was leftover from some packaging|
|cut it out|
|and started wrapping the twine around|
|the back is messy, but no one is going to see it. I tied a knot when I started and used hot glue to secure it down.|
|the angles made it hard to continuously wrap the twine around... so I had to leave some bare spots which I later when back and filled in.|
|I decided to dress it up with a couple sand dollars I had laying around and add to it's beachy-ness |
It is photographed hanging from our shutters outside because the lighting was much better than inside.
So it gets added to the growing pile of souvenirs I have. Are there support groups for this type of thing??
