Hello folks! Over a year since I blogged last but to be honest I needed to take that break plus I think a lot of us didn't feel like it during the last year!
We have a massive cellar filled with old family stuff which all needs sorting and clearing. Having a rummage the other day I came across a carrier bag full of shells which my late father-in-law must have picked up years ago. I didn't feel it was right to just throw them away so they were cleaned and put to use. The leftovers will be passed to young family for other crafts.
I made a 12x12inch hanging for the garden!
The base is acrylic painted MDF . The shells were attached with a glue gun and then everything was given a few coats of satin varnish. I used wire to hang it. It looks lovely against our fence and really makes me smile!
The limpets were strung to make wind chimes and were varnished to bring out the colours .
I am entering the Sun Hanging into a new challenge blog called River of Creativity. It brilliant because you can make anything you like!
I know not many people are using blogger these days but if you do pop by , a big thank you
