Altered Spool

Good Morning Crafty Friends, Followers and Visitors

While I was away staying with my friend Deb, I did do a bit of crafting.

Today I am sharing with you a project which involved a spool and flower pot.

I enjoyed creating this for Deb!


I painted both the flower pot and spool with green metallic acrylic paint.
Once dry I added pearl trim around the base of the flower pot.
I then decorated the spool by first wrapping lace around the centre piece and decorated with flowers.
I made a whole in the top of the spool and added a piece of dowling painted metallic green and used hot glue to secure. Once this had set I added the metal butterfly and decorated around the base with flowers.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:

Craft Rocket #39 - Anything Goes
Crafting with an Attitude #29 - Anything Goes
Crafty Calendar # Anything Goes 

Many thanks for visiting today
Happy Crafting!

Oh, this is such a delightful creation, Linda! Love the green you chose and the flowers and butterfly are marvelous! I know I've been MIA for the last couple of weeks but I've been off on my summer travels and rarely had internet connections. I'm off again today for another week where there will be no internet at all so I'll be among the missing again. I'll be checking all your posts when I return. :-D
