I made this lucky horseshoe for the Bride of the wedding I went to with my Mum a couple of Saturday's ago... (I blogged about it here)
I started by drawing freehand a horseshoe shape on some cardboard and cut it out...I then covered it with ribbon and sewed it into place...I then found my trusty old friend 'the glue gun'...wow! I had forgotten how brilliant that thing is for sticking stuff...I whiled away the time sticking new and vintage buttons to the shoe, I occasionally glued my fingers to the shoe too...Phew that thing is hot! :)
But as I carried on and detached my fingers!...it QUICKLY began to look beautiful...
As well as buttons I attached paper flower elements and resin cabochons with lace and diamonte's...I created it in the evening and Freddy had already gone to bed...but in the morning, he told me that it was beautiful and that he wanted to keep it for our bedroom...(bless)
What a lovely gift and so easy to make....ALTHOUGH the Bride only had it on her wrist for about 5 minutes before it was chucked on a table and covered up by table flowers, so that no-one else could see it! lol! I don't think they get me!
Still its the thought that counts don't you think?
