Hello my dear friends,
do you remember my bundles of blowy flowers?
If you liked those, you might just like my newest creations too. I have been working on them since a little while and I had already shared them on my Instagram page but not yet here on Todolwen.
At the beginning of the year I had bought some vintage/antique candle clip holders from Germany in the colors silver and gold and I wanted to turn them into something really neat and my blowy flowers came to my mind and today I am sharing how my idea turned out and I hope you will like what you see.
Unfortunately not everything works out that I make.
In my first attempt I had made my first ornaments with the silver candle clips holders and just loved how they turned out until a few days ago when I discovered that the glue that I had used made the metal rust, yes RUST! I had made a set of 4 and now I am taking them apart again because they look so 'unpretty'. The glistening glass glitter has now a dirty look which I am not happy with.
Can you see the ugly rust in the picture?
I was and am so unhappy about this.
So then I made a set with the golden candle clips ...
... and those didn't rust thankfully!
I know it's very very short notice but these will be listed in my Etsy shop today at 2 PM ET (that's in about 30 mins. I had looked at the clock wrong but couldn't go back then after sharing it on Instagram.)There is only one set of them as of right now but I am happy to make a few more of them.
Thank you so much for stopping by here at Todolwen, it is always so nice when you do.
I hope you are well my dear friends and life is treating you kind.
Have a peaceful, safe and creative day.
Oh I know how bad the wrong glue can be. I am feeling with you!ReplyDelete
But they are looking great!
Hugs Ines♥ And I follow you on Instagram now! :-)
