When days are shorter and the sog and bog of
November chills everyone .
So proceeded to repurpose old clear glass candle holders.
They were just going to be given away.
with glue then grind glitter and coarse ground sand on the outside.
Takes a couple of days to harden. It was a hoot to make these.
Like being a little kid at craft time.
Just couldn't help myself. There's even a remote control.
Got to be that everyone coming over just had to try turning on the candles
by pushing the buttons.
They have no real use, but they can be used as tags, or ornaments , or cat toys....
Again, couldn't do just a few. Too fun.
Dunked in glue then sand and glitter then scrunched to be crunchy. Once dry, they are rock solid. Glitter. Glitter.
Found a pattern, then changed it to make it more simple.
Double crochet, on the round. Same with the little bags.
Double crochet in the round and split chain to make handles.
Angel Tree , or the Women's shelter. Not sure yet.
And for some of those people in need will be used.
