A project which started with and old dictionary, some teabags, and glue...oh and a patience pair of hands!
I came across this page which was very apt! I still have the tea stained hands to show for my hard work.
I hung up the pages on a makeshift washing line, ie the curtain pole, it was raining when I started, but when I came back from dealing with August's toddlers adventures; the beautiful sunlight was dancing over the pages...the effect was quite stunning. The curling pages, the written word and bright winter light, I love it when mother nature hits you with her awesome power!
The project is a simple one, you roll the pages to make cones, glue and repeat...A LOT!
Starting to take shape
Then out came my trusty glue gun and on a cardboard wreath I glued, and glued, and glued....then I needed some slightly smaller cones, so made some more with a page torn in half. I then glued and glued once more!!
There were some happy coincidences....Perfect pair!
then with some ruffles of halved pages, it was complete!
Ready for the shop window... What a lovely happy project.
