One of the things I LOVE about crafting is that every item is unique! Even if you get inspiration from someone, chances are you make a similar item, but never EXACTLY the same. And you can’t get much more unique than grabbing some random items to create yourself a little sign. Let your imagination take over and grab some items that will spell your letters. Let me show you what I mean!
I wanted to create a cute little “shelf” sitter with the word LOVE.
And I grabbed these items ..
Some popsicle craft sticks
A ceramic flower (£1.99 in The Range)
Two black antique style handles – I bought mine in B&Q
A wood slice
Some sticks – I bought these willow sticks in the pet section in The Range
A bit of rope
And a piece of wood of course!
Now, I know what you may be thinking .. poor thing – lost the plot! But bear with me here. You can easily use these items to get creative and start spelling. Here we go:
See where I’m going with this?
Add some hot glue to stick it all down .. Boom! Done!
some final touches to the love sign
Whoa horsey .. not so fast!! .. I re-did the “V” and glued this down with E6000 which has a bit more “oomph” than the hot glue.
I also wasn’t 100% happy with the “L”, so added some rope for some more dimension. But that was pretty much it!
You can catch how I made this from start to finish on a Facebook Live by heading here (while you’re there, you may want to give my page a follow so you can catch future projects?)
Here’s the final outcome – quirky and random .. but LOTS of fun 🙂
Let me know what materials you’ll be trying to create your own little uniqueness?!
I don’t think I’ve got a favourite, but if I had to made a choice, I do LOVE how the “V” has turned out!
