My Uncle turned 50 last week and we had a big birthday bash for him. I had no idea what to get him, nor the money really, so I improvised. He is a construction foreman (sp?) so I made this little crown out of screws and stuff for him kind of as a little joke. The base part is from one of those metal hanging shower basket things. Wire just wrapped around the pieces sticking up and the screws..they're bouncy and cute. lol The big piece on the front is a candle that I melted a bit on the back to make it stay put on the wire. Lord knows it's not at all fancy but it was fun to make...and it was hilarious when my aunt actually made him put it on...I really didn't think he would do it.
