Wanted a napkin holder in golden colour..

One day I found some scarps of wood
Measured them and cut them in the size little smaller than the width of napkin
These are scarps from the left overs of a picture frame

Have stuck a piece of wood about 2cm wide in between the frame scraps at the base, for the napkins. Paste the pieces together well with PVC glue and let it dry well.

Mix some wood filler which comes in form of tinted dust along with PVC glue to form a thick paste. Apply the paste on the bare surfaces well filling up every gap crack hole.. Wait till it dries up well.  Now use a sand paper to sand away extra coating and get smooth napkin holder..

Now as you got your napkin holder
May just varnish it, or
Paint it
Here is a simple elegant version with just a line of rhinestones..

Or jazz it up
Here I used some gold paint, rhinestones and sea shells to decorate..
Now I have my own custom made napkin holder
Hope you like it..
Make one for yourself too...
See you....

Hi! A few days back I stumbled upon a folder in computer with some pictures of my adventure in turning bland T-shirts into funky ones. I took these pictures some four years back maybe..
See how I jazzed up two plain high neck T-shirts..
 My kids four years back
How time flies...

OK, I started by buying plain high neck full sleeves T-shirts in sunny yellow and lemon green for my kids. I still do so: buy plain Ts and jazz them up to get a customized unique wardrobe member.
Note in the next image I drew some outlines with pencil on the T

All I did was simple patchwork or appliqués,  simple stitches as stem, back, chain or button-hole, a few buttons here and ribbon there, and sometimes acrylic paint..
Here is a scene of kids having fun on a sunny day near home

I don't spare any surface :)
Here is a scene inspired from The Ratatouille animation movie, on the other side of T

Now the next T-shirt
Here are my kids cycling up a small hillock upto an apple tree
See the apples are small buttons

On the other side of T...
The shoes lace are red satin ribbon stitched up sparingly on to the T

My kids
My Kids saying cheeese
Hope you all enjoyed my early venture into photographing from my early days of blogging.
