making a stand for the rabbit op floor mache paste from scraps and recyled materials.
On the first tute of making the tiny figure of paper mache paste, i had promised you all to make a tute of making the stand.
Its really easy and its from scraps which i allready had at home. and everything is really cheap.
The parasol i had got that from a dear friend as a special gift, so i had keep it for m any years, but it was sooooo old so i had to make it a little bit stronger.LOL
And some of you know that i love durable products. Its so sad when you have done such a long time of making nice and pretty things and its after a small time gone-S
So i always try to make things a little bit strong and durable;-D
You can always use a figute that you allready had insteade off the paste figure i used. Be creative and have fun.;-D
I hope you like it and feel free to asked my anything that you don't understand,;-D
