Wow!  What an interesting assortment of products this challenge has inspired.  OK, here's my entry:

The dollar store had a lovely assortment of hardware, so I bought three packages of various sized screws, bolts, nuts and washers.  I also bought a three pack of spooled wire, for a total of $4.00.  I used some glue, some of those infamous glass gems I had hanging around and a dot of tinfoil, <edit>I forgot to say my FIL happily added the lovely star washer and bolt to my supplies to top off my project (small picture on right)<edit>:

After: a snazzy poker-themed acent lamp!



Additional craft supplies used: duct table, electrical tape, batting, wire hanger, used CD, scissors, pliers w/ wire cutters
