Thought I would share ...


Thought I would share this with you.... I had a beautiful 'Yankee Candle' at Christmas and of course its now all gone, I always keep the jars because I do glass painting and they always come in useful for new projects.  I never know what to do with the lids and normally just throw them away, but, today I thought about trying this.  I just took a length of aluminium wire and shaped it round the glass and squashed the ends with my beading pliers to secure it after making the loop.  I then cut some flowers using Spellbinder dies out of some aluminium sheet, shaped them, added some colour with my alcohol inks and attached them around the top using Collall glue.  Then just added some raffia and frayed it a bit.
