I was in the mood to create tonite yet I didn't feel like doing any needlework or mosaics. Actually I just finished a small mosaic table and now just waiting for it to fully set so I can grout it. But the point is, I felt like "doing" something yet I didn't want to invest a lot of time or start on anything to big. So I started just messing around in my crafting room and ran across a small, very cute, vintage candle holder. My mind started ticking as I looked around the room, trying to think of what to do with it besides the obvious use of a candle holder. And this is what I came up with.
|In the middle is the candle holder. I broke off some roses and leaves from the shown rose basket. Found the pretty vintage rose cup in my stash and got out a cup full of Mastic.|
|So here's the cup filled with the Mastic. I used one stick to scoop it out and the other to scrape it off. I got it all nice and even and cleaned off any access. Now time to add the roses!|
|Here we go...I simply stuck the roses and leaves into the Mastic, arranging them close together.|
|Next I filled in the hole of the candle holder with Mastic. It wasn't to large of an opening so I simply put in nothing but the Mastic. I built it up a tad high so there would be plenty to grab onto the cup,.|
|And here it is!! Now just to let it dry Hopefully it will be a success! If not, I will DEF let you know, lol!! (I've done many things similar to this so I'm pretty sure all will be good.)|
