for this one, I used an old rusty tool used for applying the glue for tile. I found it in a bucket of rusty old trowels out in my workshop. I LOVE the curly handle! All it needed was a sprig of silk flowers! For fresh cut blossoms, a glass or plastic test tube fits right inside too.
Using old redwood from a retaining wall that had to be replaced and some interesting metal from the scrap yard, I made this wall hanging. It holds a glass jar and flowers perfectly!
I love the color of the rusty metal and the old narly redwood. I sealed it with a clear satin varithane.
