  • What is the weirdest thing you have used ?

    just for a bit of fun, and also shows the adaptability and creativity of crafters.

    what is the oddest item you have used either as a tool or incorporated into any of your crafts? ( or have collected but not used yet)


    No prizes .. just for a laugh

    I use quite a lot of toothpicks (tools and to incorporate into items)
    drinking straws (tool)
    old CDs dvds (paint palette)
    dog hair.....
    Hope I'm not the only weird one out there

        Not something I've used ... but my mum is knitting herself a peaked cap and is waiting until her washing up bottle is empty to use the plastic for the peak part. (Very "Blue Peter" if you ask me)

          Oh where to start!!
          I am using foreign money at the moment in some art work I am making, I have collected plastic and normal beer bottle tops to turn into fridge magnets. I have a large selection of plastic bottles to turn into jewellery, magazines for turning into envelopes. I collect all sorts of things to be hoarded in case I ever need it!

            I use the little plastic measuring scoops that you get in tins of baby milk for scooping beads (I have to be careful not loose them all now as my son no longer has baby milk!)

                I've got a red one from SMA formula (I think) in my salt jar next to the cooker. It has be 10+ years old now. Lasted longer than lots of other kitchen utensils!

                  Egg cups, saucers... anything I can get my hands on in the kithcen really as templates or holders for things. Toothpicks are always used both as a tool and for support in some of my quilled projects (they are hidden away inside stacked coils).

                    The weirdest thing!!

                    When making a football card for a friend of my son, I used a washing tablet net for the goal. Is this weird enough? Also use the wire from a twist tie for stems of flowers.

                      I am trying to combine my hobby (jewellery making) with boyfy's hobby (computers) - or am I just trying to reduce the amount of tat in the spare room?

                      I have collected loads of spare computery bits I plan to make into jewellery, although Dave requests that I ask him first before "recycling" his computer components - apparently some are quite expensive.......
