Small Sculptures

8 May

 

 Materials

  1. Plastic lid
  2. Glass Beads
  3. Sequins
  4. Flat glass marbles (Available in floral departments or at Dollar Tree.)
  5. Coated wire (Available at Michaels, or other places where craft supplies are sold.)
  6. Hot Glue
  7. Hammer and nail, or drill

 Directions

  1. Think of a shape you’d like to represent with wire.
  2. How many pieces of wire will you need for this shape?  Cut pieces from roll with scissors.
  3. Twist wire together at bottom, so end is small, and then bend pieces into the shape you want.
  4. Add sequins and beads, twisting wire to hold into place.
  5. Ask and adult to tap a hole into the plastic lid using hammer and nail. (Drilled holes work too.)
  6. Insert bottom of sculpture into hole in lid and bend to secure.

(If sculpture isn’t balanced, add flat glass marble with hot glue to balance.  A small glass pebble was used to balance the tree, seen here.  A large flat pebble was used to balance coral and fish.)

 

We had so much fun with these that we made more.  We’ve updated the bases.  An adult drills a hole in a wooden block and we fit the scultures into it. My friend MCK made some of these with us. Thanks MCK!
