Well welcome! If you are new to What Meegan Makes-a hearty welcome! If you are a long time follower-Thanks for coming back again and again. I love having you here.
I was given the challenge of visiting Lowe’s and creating something in an unexpected way. While strolling through the aisles, I came upon some clamps. Hmmm…
DIY Clamp & Crystal Sun Catcher seemed to be just what I needed.
Combining the clamps, with crystals could be a unique and one of a kind way to decorate our balcony.
What I used:
12 inch embroidery hoop
craft paint or fusion mineral paint
Krylon spray paint
Gorilla super glue
I measured out different lengths of monofilament. I wanted each clamp and crystal to be a altering lengths.
After spray painting the embroidery hoop with the Krylon metallic paint, and while the hoop was drying, I was ready to paint the clamps.
Using a Fusion MIneral Paint, I painted each clamp a different pastel color. I wanted the crystals bling to shine off of the colorful clamps.
Using Gorilla Super Glue, I was able to secure the string of monofilament to the hoop.
To make an anchor base I attached 3 strings (all the same length) of monofilament to a key ring. Once again securing it with Gorilla Super glue for security.
Once the DIY Clamp and Crystal Sun Catcher were hung, my balcony looked so much better.
I really like the various clamp colors. I am so glad I painted them. Now the crystals bounce their sparkle off of them, creating a rainbow of colors all day long.
As the sun goes down, the colors from the crystals and clamps become more intense.
Thanks so very much for joining me today. I am always appreciative of your kind words and encouragement.
