Another Rust y Bedspring , Making Rust Part II, and A Couple Captured Fairies/Witches...AND....I won a prize!!!

Many,many, many thanks to MissElaineous for the giveback giveaway gift...yay!! I'm so tickled ! I'll be emailing you soon, Elaine :D

Remember a few days ago I was talking about making rust. Sue from VintageSue mentioned using steel wool, bleach and vinega3. As soon as I poured the bleach and vinegar into the old glass,I could see rust forming. I left them sitting overnight and then the next morning I laid them out on a paper towel and took them outside. Whew, did they rust fast!! So I learned something new!

Back to the rusty bedsprings....I saw someone mention this over at Ki's the same day I bought one of those cheap plastic covered hanging birdsnests. I LOVE it! I bought 4 of them and t

*Monday morning....
I seem to have lost part of my blog here...LOL....let me finish where I left off!
So I bought 4 of these cheap plastic birdsnests on the clearance rack for $1.25 each. They had lots of plastic flowers and greenery, and each one had 2 birds and 3 eggs and were hanging from a chain. After I got the nest free, I lined it with dried moss, repainted the eggs, and added some bits & pieces, and glued it to a rusty bedspring.

From this...

To this.

Another rusty witch lantern.

We went to Michael's and my grandson wanted one of these wooden masks, only $1. I helped him paint it up; I showed him how to make "a" scar. See, he really liked that and decided the mask needed lots of zipper scars!

And last, another captured fairy. I spend a lot of time photographing these, and don't have the hang of it yet. But I'll keep practicing.

I love all your stuff! (and I'm sending this again cause it disappeared).

Many moons ago, when I was about 10, the pastors daughter helped me make one of the ice candles. YOur picture inspired me to ask DGD if she would like to make one for her Mom for Christmas, it should fit her tight budget very well!

What are the amounts for making stuff rust? I want to rust some nails to put in my African Violets, they supposedly like rust for food!
