Vases & Bowls
Get flash to fully experience Pearltrees
So, I finally just changed all the burnt out light bulbs in my house. So now my left with old light bulbs and being the environmentalist I am, I do not want to throw them out. I want to make art with them! So I was looking at different crafts and I came across this vase. I was ready to make it on the spot but sadly I do not have all the materials, so I decided to share it with all of you! Tutorial after the break!
Make this planter! I started making these eco planters for gifts a year ago and haven't stopped. They are simple, stylish and downright lovable. Each pot is unique and has an organic, handmade feel. It is not an instant gratification project and you will have to commit, but the results are well worth it. I like to make about six at a time.
so it's been a while since i've posted anything remotely crafty lately...i suppose i must be getting lazy (technically lazy-er). anyway, i saw this cute bowl on craftgawker over the weekend so i decided to make my own-with my own tutorial 'cause i need the practice anyway right? anyway, it's a pretty simple process, it's actually really similar to my recycle magazine bowl but with rope instead. basically just glue, wrap, glue, wrap, etc, etc. all you need is a hot glue gun and rope. i got my rope for $2-it's 50 ft, 1/4 inch, manila rope (i almost went with the sisal but i liked the color of the manila more). start wrapping in a circular motion to form the base. if you plan on making several i might consider making all the bases first just to make sure they're the same size. when i made my second i tried to make it the same size...which of course, it isn't. but that could just be the fact that i can almost never make the same thing twice...
Yeah, I know. No big whoop. However …. And once you have that you can form it into this … Clothespin Fruit Bowl Or you can spiral it and use it like this …
