MAKE A SILVER FLOWER HOLDER
While I was visiting http://www.onecheapbitch.blogspot.com , I noticed that she was making napkin rings from old silver ware. Well I immediately thought about this tiny magnetic vase that I made . Now this is on my fridge and I see it every day, but I guess you just get used to seeing something and don't think about it. Anyway if you see odd pieces of silver or silver plate at garage sales pick them up- if they have a thick handle but are very light weight, then the handle is probably hollow-which is what you need. Use a hacksaw or whatever to cut the handle of about 1/2 or 3/4 of the way up. Sand the edges,so it won't be sharp. Use E-6000 or any strong glue and glue a magnet to the back. Fill with water and add as bloom.These make cute teachers gifts or happys for friends. I actually saw one of these at a flower shoop for $15.00-get real!
