Hobbit Goblet….

I was pottering around playing with copper wire yesterday, I had been inspired to get creating after watching Barb’s Ustream show on Friday night… and this is what I came up with…

I was hoping it would turn out basket-like, but it ended up coming out goblet shaped lol, but I do love it and it now has pride of place on the lamp table in the lounge …

I also used up some fibres, wool and fabric woven inbetween the copper wire…  this is fun to do 😉

It’s squint, lop sided and wobbly, but I love it 🙂

I also made a triangle shaped frame and wove some seed beads through it…. I do love working with wire so will try and get some more practice in and try out making different things in the future 🙂

Thanks for stopping bye…

This is a little late Friday night project that I made, re-purposing and reusing a tissue box, which is also going to be this week’s WOC DT project..

Its an altered and decorated tissue box, aptly named “Aaahtishyoo”, and it will be going to good use too as I have now refilled it with tissues and its going back into work with me on monday 🙂

I used the really pretty paper line from Papermania called Portobello Road and gorgeous wild orchid crafts red roses,  if you are looking for a quick and easy project to get stuck into then this ticks all the boxes 🙂
