When I am planning a class, I always make more than one example of the project. When I made the little wire birdcages, I probably made two thousand or more, since they were pretty complicated and I wanted to streamline them before writing up instructions for the online class. Online versions have to be extra careful since the student isn't in the same room to easily ask questions like at an art event workshop.
So, as I was spiffing up the studio and getting ready for company and for the holidays, I came across those two thousand plus cages- here, there, and everywhere around the room.
Instead of packing them away to make room for holiday things, I decided to use them as holiday decorations on my mini tree.
Of course, the tree is pretty tiny, and they take up most of it, but I like the look. I think I'll put some on my big tree in the house too.
Wouldn't they be cute with a few tiny shiny brites in the cage?
Since I have a few thousand of them to use....
