It's time again for another Project Challenge!
This is the second month that I've participated and I have to say I am having a lot of fun with it.
This months theme is Duct Tape,
which I have to admit, threw me for a loop at first. I spent most the the month trying to figure out what to make but once I settled into an idea it was fun.
Having never made anything out of duct tape before, now I understand why all three of my girls eyes grew big with excitement when they saw me unpack a fresh roll of duct tape from my shopping bag. . . I had to hide it away for safe keeping!
Now that my project is done, that fresh roll of duct tape is fair game for whoever finds it first and I can show off what I made with it.
I found a fun shaped lamp shade at the thrift store and wrapped the whole thing with duct tape . . . .
I then crafted tiny rose buds and leaves to glue onto the frame.
I think it turned out pretty awesome.
Even hubby says it looks nice - which is BIG!
Now I just have to find one of those cool clear glass light bulbs to use and I think it will be really neat!
In case you'd like to make something similar I've put together a grouping of photos to walk you through the steps of the process.
The finished product is fun and pretty!
