Dollhouse Miniature Statue


Remember the Christmas light bulbs I showed you last week on Trash to Treasure Thursday? Well, after I got that one all filmed, photographed and the video done I went to clean up my worktable so I could go on to another project. As I was picking up the little plastic ends that I had removed from those light bulbs it occurred to me that they really could become something too. The first thing that popped into my head was that they looked a bit “art decoish” and would make cute little statues to sit on a shelf. They are the perfect size for that too. I bet if you think about it and really look at them you can come up with something else to make with them. If you do be sure to post a photo on the Facebook page or email me a copy. I would love to see what you do with them.

To make my little statue all I did was to use some Brushed Metal spray paint from Krylon in the color Satin Nickel. I think that you could also use a brush on craft paint to color these too. Especially if you either use one of the ones meant for plastic or give them an under-coat of Mod Podge. You can make yours any color too. I bet these would look awesome in a high gloss black finish. I chose the color I did because I needed it for another project that I painted at the same time. Since I had the paint can out and was already using it I figured I might as well do this little piece too.

So what do you see when you look at that little plastic piece???? I want to know your ideas.

  3. I see a sky scraper or a futuristic building. The potted cactus is a great idea.
