Doodad


This is the first of my two pieces for the Artella Spring Sprite swap. I wanted to make a doodad to hang up and inspired by one of these tins that a friend (Liz) had turned into a Christmas decoration I thought I'd have a go. It was almost a disaster as I Superglued the lid on and then realised I hadn't cleaned the fingermarks off the INSIDE of it!! Fortunately my lovely DH had a cunning plan and rescued the situation! :-) I actually prefer it with the lid off (as it is in the pic) but I'll send it along to my swap partner and she can decide how she likes it best. I'm really pleased with this but it is green so no surprise really! LOL
