1  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Completed Projects / Industrial Pendant on: September 07, 2012 08:22:40 AM
Hello, all.  I wanted to show off a little thing I made today.  I found a random cog as I was sorting through some things and thought it would make an interesting pendant.  I wrapped it with some leftover VHS tape and came up with this.  Hope you enjoy!

Thanks for looking!

Decoupage them onto cork board and make coasters. It's a project that has been in the back of my head for a while.  Maybe I'll get around to it...eventually...

Make a windsock with one.  Remove the bottom, punch holes in the edge and string ribbon through.  Paint the can to match the ribbons!  Great, now I want to make one using the Gatoraid can I have leftover.

Take an x-acto knife and make templates!  For example:  http://familyfun.go.com/crafts/easter-egg-basket-with-printable-template-667605/  You can make neat little baskets.

What can I do with good coloring containers (the little teardrop ones)?

I used a ton of soda cans in different colors to make butterflies for my daughter's first birthday. I used double stick tape and put them all over the walls.  There was quite a flock.  Too bad all those pics got lost in The Great Computer Kablooey!

I'm kind of surprised that I didn't see this mentioned. You can use the keys to make nifty jewlery or magnets or napkin rings or whatnot. You can get inspiration for this over on Etsy.  I've seen quite a bit of good things with keyboard keys over there.

That's lovely.  I believe you've given me  my next piece of inspiration!

I'm in LOVE with the bamboo beach mats with the colored boarders.  I am thinking you could staple gun them up there in some sort of pattern.  It would bring in a natural element and some fun colors.

My grandparents had a rock garden, and this sounds similar to the image I have of their rock garden.  They had a heck of a time with weeds.  I'd suggest putting down that black material that is specifically designed to block weeds in gardens before putting down the rocks. Also, if you do get weeds and you aren't particular about the chemicals you use, there's always weed killer sprays.

I agree with all of the suggestions.  It really depends on what you're looking for, style-wise.  I'd reccomend the woven beach mats and then paint them in the colors/themes to go along with your garden/style.
