1  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Re: My Simple yet stylish DVD Wreath on: September 26, 2011 01:29:11 PM
Its completely out of old discs.  i used a round serving platter as a guide.  I laid down 9 discs, spaced them so the layer on top would show line up exposing the holes and clear area of the previous row..and i flipped it over and did the same on the other side.  that way i can hang in a window and have a complete back side to show off  I added the cut up bits to make confetti to help break up the light so it would add more texture and dimension when the light hit it ( and any imperfections in the discs such as scratches)

I have seen some attempts at recycling old cd's and Dvd's into wreaths, but I have yet to see one like mine.  I thought i would share my creation

I added texture by cutting up a couple more dvds like confetti and glued on randomly all over.
With keeping in the metallic theme of this wreath, i found an indoor/outdoor plastic bow with metalic red ribbon.  It adds a nice contrast.

The wreath took 36 discs.  it is double sided to add strength.

This is my very first shared post and hope you all like it

When comparing the pattern picture, and your picture, I prefer yours.  What did you do to yours to make it look different? did you press yours?  the cables lay flatter and and have a nicer over finish to it.

That first doily reminds me of the pattern Im knitting  which can be found at

Im sad to see this topic so quiet.  I love knitting lace doilies, and actually came here because I need someone to translate a russian burda pattern for me.

Looking at the pictures, I like them both!  I like the combo of red with the grey on the second one.
I bet it worked up fast! Smiley

Your version is fantastic!  I started this shrug/bed jacket in white two ply baby yarn.  I am going to have to read over all the postings carefully so I can make another in a worsted yarn.  I just love all the pictures and diagrams you have shared with us! Your posting is truly inspirational!!!! Smiley
8  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Taking old paint off ball ornaments on: November 06, 2005 11:30:19 AM
does anyone know a good way to take the paint off old ball ornaments that are showing wear? I have some that are peeling and would like to take the paint off and create them into something new.

This looks like what was once called a "facinator"  its a triangle head scarf, and does have ends to tie or secure the scarf on your head.  since the movie was set in the turn of the last century, Im pretty sure thats what it is , in keeping with the historical costuming.

What a cool idea! Im going to try this by adhereing the picture to a cd and putting felt on the bottom side. This will save on digging out my compass  Smiley
