Good morning to all of ya!
I have a new DIY that I hope you all will like.
I made my own rope and glass cloche:
This was made using a regular glass hurricane type bowl you can find anywhere, some nylon rope (any will work obviously) and a wood base. The bases are the pre-cut kind you can get from any craft store.
Actually, at the last minute, I decided to make two more from some mason jars I had on hand just to see what they’d look like. I’m happy with how they all turned out…
As you can see, I chose to use a knob that I had as the pull rather than rope, just to mix it up a little.
For the little one, I chose to have a single rope pull rather than a loop. Both are knotted on the inside and outside to keep it in place.
Here is the scoop on the painted bases:
You may be thinking that you’ve seen something like this before.
Hmmm….let me see. Maybe here?
I think, in total, I was out about $10 (for all three), keeping in mind that I already had the rope, the mason jars and a couple of the bases. Even if you have to purchase the vessel, the base and the rope, you won’t even come close PB’s $99 price tag.
To keep this post from going on and on like the song that never ends, I will give you the step-by-step instructions on how to drill the holes into your glass, and what tools to use, tomorrow.
UPDATE: Here is Part Two….showing you how to drill holes in glass.
Be sure to c’mon back!
