A Hanging Garden Sparkler

toomuchglass(5)September 8, 2010

Made with leftover Threaded rod , old candle cups and bolts. I'm loving these little bursts of color all over !

To get the wires to hold in the candle cups , I filled them with grout - and stuck the wires in . After it dried , I put a layer of E-6000 over the top of the grout in each cup - just for added "goo-ability" .

I like your 3 tiers of 3 colors! Great idea & more impact or sparkle I think way you did them, almost like fireworks going off! Thanks! Jan

Wonderful idea! I might just have to steal it. lol! It reminds me of those shiney holiday decorations that are flat and when turned upside down fill out like your sparkler. You usually see them at Christmas time in gold, silver, green and red. TFS!

TMG....LOVE IT!!! I miss seeing everyone's creations!!!! I am trying to play catch up, it's been so long since I've been able to have any junkin' time. My 14 yr old has been doing soccer and cheer, so I'm in the road constantly. Soccer is almost over, so maybe I can get back to normal...did I say that??? I'm not sure what normal is these days..LOL

I went crazy at the bead store - now I have to use them up !

(I have a store by me - it's like an old fashioned dime store - all crafts supplies. They order everything in bulk to get the best price - then break everything down into smaller quantities & keep the price cheap. That does me in every time - I can't resist ! )

I love the 3 tiers idea, it really adds dimension.
Beautiful how you divided the colors too.

I don't have the pictures anymore - they are on a computer that died a horrible death. All my files & pics went poof ! I have it hanging in the rear of my yard - but from the blizzard there's 3 feet of snow in my yard !!!!! I can't get back there till we get some melting going on .
I'm sorry ! Maybe someone saved a pic that repost it for me.
