Hey, hey, how are you today?
I'm gathering a few crafty ideas from this book.
Today, I'm doing a mash-up of
three different projects:
log dome display jar by Kate Pruitt
butterfly dome by Jessica Oreck
Here's what we need:
blah: an empty glass jar
blah: a glass base for a pillar candle & a candle stick
When you put them together...
TADA!: Instant display dome!
But let's add something inside
to make it even more TADA!
blah: butterflies made with a butterfly puncher
and old magazine pages
Sandwich a piece of wire between two butterfly
cutouts using all purpose glue.
Use varying lengths of wire,
then allow these to dry.
Meanwhile, make a base for the butterflies.
Trace the mouth of the glass jar on a piece
of Styrofoam and cut around it using
a blade or X-acto knife.
Stick in the wire, making sure each
butterfly is visible.
Gingerly insert the butterflies into
the glass jar and use the Styrofoam
base as a stopper.
Put this on top of the homemade pedestal.
Secure each section of the display dome
with hot glue, super glue or putty.
TADA! It's a butterfly dome display stand!
And it's pretty in every angle!
