Tea Stained Hands


                 

A project which started with and old dictionary, some teabags, and glue...oh and a patience pair of hands!

                     

I came across this page which was very apt! I still have the tea stained hands to show for my hard work.

                 

I hung up the pages on a makeshift washing line, ie the curtain pole, it was raining when I started, but when I came back from dealing with August's toddlers adventures; the beautiful sunlight was dancing over the pages...the effect was quite stunning. The curling pages, the written word and bright winter light, I love it when mother nature hits you with her awesome power!

                   

The project is a simple one, you roll the pages to make cones, glue and repeat...A LOT!

                 

Starting to take shape

                 

                 

Then out came my trusty glue gun and on a cardboard wreath I glued, and glued, and glued....then I needed some slightly smaller cones, so made some more with a page torn in half. I then glued and glued once more!!

                        

There were some happy coincidences....Perfect pair!

                 

then with some ruffles of halved pages, it was complete!

Ready for the shop window... What a lovely happy project.

What a wonderful idea! Must of been extremely time consuming, but that's okay if you have idle hands. Such a great little project to do over the course of rainy days!

Perfect if you want to make a wreath rather than buy one. You could also do it in various colours with other types of paper and so on.
