How to make a Fire Basket!



Christel Jensen has found a cool tutorial made by
Amy Merric on the site Design Sponge.

Christel made her own variation,and created a
fantastic chairs by using the wire parts from
Champagne Corks.

I wanted to share an other idea with you, of what
more can be made out of these wire parts.



This is what you need. The plastic basket are small pots
of water plants for a fishbowl. Do some cutting and painting,
and ....Tádá!




One Fire Basket!

This idea I came up with when I was sitting in front of my
own real fire basket warming up on the heat!
I thought.... I want one in mini too,for my little garden I was
working on at that time.

  1. That is such a great idea, Sabiha! Thank you. And thank you for the tip about pastel chalk - I would never have thought of that. I am going to buy some today!

  3. Ik dacht even dat je buiten had gezeten bij de vuurkorf ( die spoort niet) totdat ik zag dat het een ouder bericht was (blond???)
    Maar hij blijft heel mooi, misschien ook iets voor de kelder, 's winters zet je hem tenslotte binnen anders gaat ie roesten.

  11. Hij is leuk! Ja daar zou ik nou nooit op gekomen zijn, toch maar eens bij de andere afdelingen bij het tuincentrum kijken, wie weet wat we daar allemaal tegen komen haha!
    Ik lees net ook de posts hieronder. Vervelende toestand, waar ik net als jij niets van begrijp. The less said about it, the better, zoals de Fransen zeggen he ;-)

  17. I can't tell you enough how much I envy you :))) I'm afraid, I neither have the courage nor the patience to work on minis. Plus, I don't think I'd be able to find many of the necessary bits here in Istanbul. But I just love them :))) Well done...

    Love,
    G.
