So how did I turn these useless doohickies...
...into these chic and useful little objects?
Well....with these rubber chair tips from the hardware store!
I sawed the doohickies in half, then tucked the halves into the chair tips. Like this:
How cool is that? They work in both directions, for two different styles of picture holder.
You can see what I mean in the next photo: rubber tips down for the owl, rubber tips up for the butterfly.
To make the easel style more stable, I tucked a washer between the feet:
So practical, and darn good-looking! I can use tons of these all around my house. I made a dozen, using up 12 more doohickies in this project.
Doohickie count so far: 120 (out of 247)
Another round coming soon! Winter's almost over, so these games will be winding to a close. See you next time for the final project...
Hmm. Final project? Maybe not quite.
See you then!
In case you missed any:
great idea - they could work as card/ poster holders as exhibitions, place cards for guests at a wedding/lunch/dinner/parties, so many possibilitiesReplyDelete
