As you may have noticed I am no longer in the competition for So You Think You’re Crafty. Since I didn’t get very many votes I’m not going to post a full blown tutorial but post about some of the tricks I learned while creating my front entrance ensemble.
First trick recycling toy containers:
How to get this: to look like this:
The picture was sort of painted on the container so I used lots of this to get it off:
The next trick I learned was if you are going to have something much taller than your basket coming out of your basket you need to put some weight in your basket. I used rocks, but on the really windy days that was enough so I then used a bunji cord to secure it to the pillars (if that’s what you would call them).
The last trick was that the weeds from the empty field next door make for great fillers (and pretend swords).
That’s it and thanks to everyone who voted for me.
