So darn cute!
clever imaginative up cycling!
Thanks, girls! I’m having so much fun making my little junk sculptures! When I sent pics to my mom, she told me she was trying to see what materials I had used, so I thought that might be of interest. This one’s called “Mardi Martini.” She’s made from a vintage martini shaker and holds a Mardi Gras shot glass. She sits on a coaster picturing an elegant woman drinking a martini and wears a doily apron. Her arms are vintage measuring spoons attached to nuts and washers topped off with buttons. More buttons for eyes and a stacked button hat, and little red seeds act as buttons on her chest. Everything’s held together with 100% silicone sealant, the perfect glue–it adheres enough to hold things in place right away, but doesn’t completely dry for a long time, allowing you to move things around.
