Over at Just for Fun this week the theme, chosen by the lovely Von, is “kitchen finds”. The girls have asked us to create something from items found in the kitchen. Von , Zoe and Neet have come up with some fantastic projects and inspiring ideas this week. For full details of the challenge and all the fab entries click on the JFF logo on the side bar.
Thursday afternoon I set about hunting my bounty. I pulled out draws and emptied cupboards. This is what I came up with from my finds.
I filled a large can with water and left if it in the freezer over night. I used a large masonery nail and made some holes here and there including two in the base to let rain water out. I left the ice to melt, dried it off and painted it with a coat of PVA and a coat of white acrylic paint. The embellishments are from a cracker and the handle I am not sure about but both were in “the draw”. These make really nice rustic tree lights at Christmas. If, you have little ones staying for the holidays, they are make an economical Santas runway. I use the larger tea lights which last about 6 hours. Seriously good fun to do. Remember to make a couple of scuff marks and some glitter to show where the slay landed! lol!
I revamped an apple which I found in the “big pot”. The “big pot” is where all little bits of stray things go if they don’t go in “the draw”! lol! This is a stray christmas decoration that never got put away.
I coated the apple in PVA glue, added some torn pieces of paper from a book. I found some wire in “the draw” which I coiled around and glued it to the top of the apple.
I made the next item last year or could have been the year before. I found it in pantry when I was hunting.
For this I used two jam jar lids. I covered one lid with some padding and then covered it in some fabric. I stamped onto the fabric and coloured with fabric paints. I covered the fabric with serviette varnish to seal it. I covered up the join of the lids with some edging.
That’s it from me. I am full of cold so I am off for a hot toddy.
Have a great weekend.
Best Wishes Florence
