an angellicht made of a pingpongbal on an eleckric thealight and scraps
i thought i must cheer a dear friend of mine up, to give her some bright light.
i had saw something like this of Aint she Crazy Link:
I love the idea and thought i can make this for my friend, i found some old pinpong balls and thought i can make this much more kitshy of it and later on why not a angel.
so that was the starting idea.
Because of my big move i must clean a lot of materials up so i didn't bought anything for this project at all.

the "glass mirrow pieces" are old cds that weren't working any more and that i had cut in tiny pieces.
Hope you llike it too it was fun to made this.;-D

NOTE:
the time is without drying time.
There are much steps but in real it's less, i have took so much picts to let you see the proces much better, like some other members, it's still hard to write all the steps in english. And of couse you're free to make a rendier or santa claus too.LOL
Be creative and have a great fun crafting time;-D

feel free to ask me your questions and i love faves and comments.LOL
thank you for hopping by, much crafting fun with this tiny project;-D
