Everbuilt 1/2 -1 1/2 in Hose Repair Clamp.
I have to say that this item stumped me more than any of the others. I had the hardest time determining what I was going to do with a hose clamp. This month we get tho create the gift for ourselves…how thoughtful of me. After overthinking this project I decided to create simple napkin rings adorned with Oyster Shells.
Oyster Shell Napkin Rings
Living near the beach, I have a collection of oyster shells waiting and ready to be used in a project. I applied a light coat of off white spray-paint to the hose repair clamps to spiff them up. With a glue-gun I attached the shells to the hose repair clamps.
Since creating my sharktooth necklace I have discovered the glory of gold leafing and decided to add a little to the shells.
I applied the gold leaf to each shell .
I sealed the gold leaf to the shells and allowed them to dry overnight.
I think that they turned out pretty good and will make a nice addition to a coastal dinner.
Since we are talking about gifts and the Holidays being right around the corner…check out my Custom Water Color Shop. These make really awesome and thoughtful gifts.
