Just for Fun - Kitchen Finds

The kitchen to me is a place to heat water for Friendly Plastic, feed the cats and has a shelf for the microwave.   When Von challenged us to make something using anything found in the kitchen I was stumped.    A relaxing evening drink of Ginger Ale and the problem was solved.

Tried to get the label off the bottle but that label was there to stay, not a problem.   Covered the bottle with Modeling Paste and left to dry, this takes something like 2 hours depending on environment.   Viva Inka gold in green coloured the paste and florist wire wrapped round the bottle.    Next alcohol ink dripped down and some florist sand (thank you Von) also stuck to side as if it had dripped there.    Several little metal charms threaded on to think wire that was then woven around the bottle and the florist wire.   Two resisters attached to the wire circling the bottom.   From 'That kitchen draw', you know the one it is crammed with useful things that do not belong anywhere else, a candle.   This was encouraged to drip down the sides over and under all the other decoration.

Here is my kitchen find then, what is yours?   Please share it with us at Just for Fun and check out the fantastic samples Von and Neet have made.

  14. I love what you've done with this Zoe! I have also found that labels don't come off bottles easily, lol, but when they do, that adhesive remains forever! A great candle holder, and the colours are lovely. Maria x
