Show Off Saturday!

Thanks to everyone for their input for this week's What the Heck Wednesday!!  You all had such great ideas, I wish I had more phone cords!

Here's what I chose to do with it:

Not sure what it is?  

It's a bud vase!!! This idea came from Katie, although her suggestion was to have them in a row, I decided to make it with them clustered together!  

I glued the phone cord loops together with hot glue (making a heck of a mess) and then glued them into a small tin I had kicking around.  At this point it didn't look finished to me.

So I bought some decorative moss to add.

I'm also going to have to pick up some fake flowers to put in there because unfortunately it doesn't hold water.

And then because I had the moss, I decided to make a mini moss decor ball for my shelf decoration!

AND because I really liked this idea too, I made some rings out of the cord too!  

The gold and pink are embroidery cotton, the brown is acryllic yarn, the light brown/multi shade is another kind of yarn, and the purple one is fabric!

Thanks again for all the great suggestions!  I can't wait to see what you have to say about next week's item!

Linking up to some of my favorite monday parties here.  Please check them out and join in the fun!
