Repurposed and Recycled bowling ball to gazing ball using blue willow plates
Hubs has been asking for a blue gazing ball for the garden......He found this blue stand at a sale which is where this project began. Okie dokie......so what to use? I had just bought this bag of blue willow transfer ware oriental dishes at a yard sale. Sounds good to me. Have Rubber Mallet....can smash dishes!! LOL
Here are some step by steps and the finished product!! :)
safety glasses, tile nippers and adhesive
Rubber mallet and plate
Oh, so pretty whole
whole no more
half way there , holes were filled with caulk
half way there still, flip side
finished and grouted (sorry, hubs was sneaky and grouted when I didn't know)....so no pics of that step. We used white non-sanded grout.
All my ART comes from the hands, heart and mind of a Mixed Media
ARTist. I am a native of rural, central Illinois and am a recent and
grateful transplant to Central Florida. After 25 years......I have finally come "Home".
Of all the gifts I have received, God blessed me best, the day He
instilled a passion to create in my soul. Time spent in the Studio
in praise to Him and up to my elbows in glass, paper, beads, glitter and glue is the saving grace of my life. For this I am forever grateful. Shelly Rae
