Paper Mache Bowl

unikatissima Papermache Bowl

Again I found a tutorial for making paper bowls. I found the bowls nice but not the way I wanted them.
Therefore I glued three, four layers of white tissue paper on using wallpaper glue – the ‘quite normal’ paper mache technique.
I really like this bowl, although I should possibly paint it.

Lightbulb Green House

I found this tutorial on how to make a mini greenhouse from lightbulbs via art for housewives.
Somehow I don’t know how to cram the big plant into the small light.
Perhaps I better stick to the lightbulb window vase ;-)

DIY Shrinky Dinks

unikatissima DIY Shrinky Dinks

I found at craftster a tutorial on how to make DIY Shrinky Dinks. I liked this (I don’t like to buy new materials, especially when I haven’t tried the technique yet).
Additionally I made a little research and found more (very similar) tutorials (see also Links below).
I really must try this, although I will wait until summer when I can easily ventilate the kitchen, because I’m always afraid of toxic gases.
Until then I can find out perhaps which of the odd plastic dishes I can use ;-)

Crocheted Bottle Cap Hot Plate

tipnut Bottle Cap Crochet Plate

I found a tutorial from the end-50s that I find funny: Bottle Cap Crochet.
Personally I find the shapes of the hot plates a little too vintage, but one can always create another shape.
The only problem I see is that in our supermarket all bottle caps are made from plastic ;-) Perhaps then better a bottlecap pincushion? ;-)
