Hi everyone - it is my turn to give you a mid month tutorial over at Rhedd's Creative Spirit.
I had a few wooden bangles hanging about in the deepest depths of what I call my craft room, one of which was wide and the others were varying styles.
I decided to put five of them together to make a pot for my dressing room table - I didn't want anything fancy and frilly, just simple and unique.
As you can see for yourselves I used glossy accents to adhere them together and you will also see they do not lay flat on top of each other lol. I cut out a piece of mountboard for the bottom and sandwiched it between the bottom 2 bangles.
To make the whole structure of the pot more stable I collaged the inside using dictionary pages and for the outside I used an old paper napkin. (sorry forgot to take a pic of the rough outside)
Once all was dry I painted the outside using white chalk paint, used a crackle medium let it dry and then finished it off with a buff beige colour acrylic. I left it over night to crackle and I have to say am really pleased with the overall finish. I sanded the bottom and top edges to give it the vintage look and used an old earring for the front.
Voila all done - finito!
I do hope you like my project and I do hope to see you all joining in with our current challenge HERE
