I seriously don't know why but the word 'artichoke' always makes me smile. Anyway, I'm writing about artichokes because I've just finished making something that kind of resembles the vegetable (or fruit?).
So? An artichoke? Not an artichoke? ;) Maybe you can guess what it's made of? Someone actually told me it could be artificial nails :P But no, they are just plastic spoons. I broke off the handles and glued the spoons at the top of the jar with my glue gun.
And then glued row after row each one overlaping the one above.
As you can see, my speckled fawn was again very helpful - he used his behind to hold the freshly glued spoons in place ;P
You can easily imagine how the shop assistants looked at me when I wanted to buy over 100 plastic spoons... and in autumn! :P I suppose a few more spoons at the bottom would be good but there are no more left in the neighbourhood ;)
I was thinking about spray painting it, gold maybe? It would look great for Christmas.
This time it's not my idea. I found this cute artichoke on craftberrybush - I really recommend this blog ;)
Have a great weekend ;)
