1  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Discussion and Questions / Garden hose vase, has any one tried ?? on: March 20, 2004 03:20:01 PM
I got an idea a couple weeks ago & was playing around & didn't get it to work. I asked a few differnt people here & on 1 other board for suggestions... one sent me this:


it's #32  on the little blocks it's 2 from the left & 7 down

& I THOUGHT I had such an original idea... drat!
LOL   Wink

Has anyone had any luck with this project? I got some very cool hose & really want this to work. I wanted to do this for my swap project, but it wasn't working so made something else.  I can't get the "vase" to stand up.  When I first started I was only using one clamp, I tried today with 2 clamps & anywhere form 1 to 5 hoses folded in half...it just can't get it to stay up.  Thanks for any suggestions!!

My boss sent me to Office Max the other day & I splurged on some stuff for myself too.  =)

I also got a pac of glue sticks... I havn't bought glue sticks in forever... I don't remember them being so soft... are they suposed to be very very soft? they are about the constitence of cool, not cold butter.   they re a pale purple which is cool & that disappers... but what about the consistaency is that rihgt??

My sister in law is due with her second baby. My neice is soon to be 8, so they don't thave alot of her stuff. So Mom  & I are doing a baby shower... We ALL HATE THESE THINGS!!! We just want a *nice* simple elegent meal. I want to do something that hasn't been done a million times before ....
For her first shower we did Homemade Chicken Salad ina puff shell, marinated veggies, bread dip, cheese, crakers, mini muffins, fruit platter.   BUT we have had so many showers  nothng seems new... ant suggestions? I don't think theere are any real dietary restrictions, we do try to keep it "healthy" not too fatty, not to starchy.
I know htis is vauge ... thanks for any suggestions

I charged her $3 ... BUT she wants 30 of them for a luncheon on Sat at a Nursing home ... Help!! SHE WANTS COLORED ONES SO I DID TELL HER THEY WOULD PROB BE A LITTLE MORE.
The duct tape was $2.49 a roll for 15 feet.
I am using wire that I have on hand
And saftey pins  on hand
Each roll takes aprox 3 feet of tape &  10 mins (tops!) to make.,,,  what do I charge?
