|mummy vases w/ candles|
today i made some mummy vases.
and since i had the vases, and the scrap fabric from the spiderweb pillow, they only cost me .97 (+some tax) in googly eyes.
i wanted to make sure that i could use the vases and fabric again, so I just used double-sided tape to adhere them to the glass.
lady m is into shadows and glowing objects so i put in some tall pillar candles (bought at a yardsale for .25 each). it's pretty cool to see them glowing in the dark. i think she'll get a kick out of it. that is, when she wakes up from her nap.
all in all, a really easy, fun centerpiece for my kitchen table.
things i've learned:
1. if i have the time, i might go in and re-wrap the mummies at certain spots. i was going for the messy look, but in some spots it almost looks too uniform.
2. i was worried that this craft was too simple or corny..and in a way, it is, but, i enjoyed doing it more than some other projects because i was crafting for someone specific in mind. i can already hear her say, "ooh cool..." and that makes me smile.
