This time, we attempted two projects - a doily-pressed dish and herb garden spoon markers. The spoons were challenging! We hammered the spoons down, then hammered the letters in... we got our workout that day, too, doing this project - who would have thought!?
It took about an hour to hammer the letters onto these three spoons! We all contributed spoons that we found at yard sales, Goodwill, and the dollar store, and someone purchased the letter stamps from Harbor Freight Tools for just $5. Now, I've just got to bring them out to the garden...
The second project was really fun and SO easy! We used Sculpey clay, pressed in a doily and rolled over it with a heavy marble rolling pin, and then shaped our dish around an oven-safe object and baked for 15 minutes. Then, we painted the clay! Mine was about 7 inches in diameter, because I wanted it to fit on my windowsill, but you could make these any size really.
I've been using mine on my window sill about my sink to hold my rings and watch when I am doing dishes. So pretty and useful, too.
Really looking forward to our next meeting!
