Lakewood show this weekend......

Here's some repurposed hanging light globe vases with dried rudbeckia. (I was trying to figure out some way to collage these with rusty lamp parts and wire them, but ran out of time--maybe for next show...there is never enough time!)


I needed a dress form to display vintage clothes for the show, so I had to get busy with the chicken wire and make one. (Where do you girls find the cool old ones? I never see them in my junkin' travels)

I never find them either and I've been looking.
Yours you made is wonderful!
Giving a tutorial on it?
Then many of us can quit looking. =0))

If you can make that cool a dress form out of chicken wire, you don't need to find an old vintage one. That is an amazing dress form.

Reading your comments, I think you just scored a whole new business...making dress forms! Get cracking before somebody beats you to it!

P.S. I have found mine at auctions, shops, thrift stores, garage sales. I had a wire one similar to the one you made that I sold. You could use old pole lamps as the bases for them!
