I am so glad you are here!
I am using the lid to an old,
rusty roaster pan.....
to make something decorative and
I began by spraying this
old, rusty piece a matte white.....
several coats were needed.
Then I wrote
I wanted to tie something interesting
onto the small handle.
I decided to start with raffia.
I have loved using raffia for years and years....
my friend, Ginger, can vouch for this.
Do you still use raffia, Ginger?
Then maybe some burlap ribbon.
This ribbon is very stiff and a good choice
for exterior use......
I think I'll just use
a short piece instead of a bow.
I wanted a button or some small "thing"
to go on top of the ribbon....
.....as I went through my stash, I found this....
......a rusty, crusty piece of a hinge.
Now I'll tie all the parts together using some
wired raffia....great stuff!
Then attach the raffia piece to the handle.
I like it!
Do you like it, Glitterinas?
Now, let's go outside and see what it
looks like in the metal basket
where I want to use it.....
Well, there it is!
One man's trash
another man's treasure.
That phrase certainly applies here!
Do you have a
rusty, crusty, old piece
that is just waiting to become
something fun, Glitterinas?
Thank you so much for
opening and reading

I am always glad
when you stop by.....
....leave me a note so I'll know you
were here! Thanks.
Until next time,
