Recycled Glass Suncatcher

What was your source for this garden project? Improvisational What type of item is this? Garden Decor How would you describe the style of your project? Casual How would you describe the style of your project? Funky How would you describe the style of your project? Whimsical How would you describe the style of your project? Outdoorsy How would you describe the style of your project? Hipster How would you describe the style of your project? Eco-Friendly What are you most proud of? I just think it is simple and pretty and I am glad I found a way to use these beautiful glass and metal beads! What advice would you give someone starting this project? Try to find recycled items. I am planning on doing another using recycled metal I cut and sand with a Dremel tool. Beading randomly adds to the simplicity. I used strong waxed cotton thread (doubled) as the sun will destroy plastic or acrylic thread and the cotton thread does not stretch as much (the beads are quite heavy).

You Can Make This
