Wrench Picture Frame

Simple but fun frame for the tiny tinkerer.



Aluminum Wire Tree with Crochet Greens

I wanted to make a tree out of aluminum wire (suddenly grabbed by pinterest-inspiration ) and I thought I’d give it some cartoon-style greenery rather than making a million tiny leaves.

Here is where I started out – aluminum wire, some scrap metal I had access to (a threaded rod, a bearing and beneath that a washer) + tools.

I shaped a tree with the wire and “borrowed” some nuts to attach the washer to the threaded rod and recruited some assistance in welding the bearing on as a support-weight.

I crochet an amusing amount of various size balls in different shades of green (completely randomly)

And finally stitched those together to fit on the branches, this took a little bit of improvising – but then again, the whole project was a little make-up-as-you-go-along =)

Temporarily located to a shelf in my kitchen =) – Cost of yarn <5$


Simply the Best
