I love whimsical arrangements and extra clock parts are oh so fun to work with when designing for the holidays.
You already saw this picture, but thought I would remind you what I have on hand. Looks like I will be busy!
A grinder and some muscle is all it took to get the boxes apart. After that a little shower with the power washer. Good clean junk!
Here she is all planted up!
A bow made from twigs rather than ribbon. Nice!
The clock face attached to the twig bow adds just the right detail.
Im working wih a very talented young lady at Otten Bros. who understands the power of the droop in arrangements. I love this litlte face falling off center. Nice work Becky!
Close up....
Or far away...shes a thing of beauty. It can be used indoors or outdoors too! Dont you just love junk?

Man-o-man....a whole pile o film reels and reel boxes. I'm like a kid in a candy store! The first idea I had was to cut some of the boxes in half and use them as free standing planters or wall pockets. Sorry, I skipped right over Thanksgiving...but I'll get back to it.


Did you make this?
After you make it, show it off to other members in the Member Junk area.
Post your project photos
