I want a do-over!

Ever had a project that's sitting around and you're just over it? This one, in particular, makes me scream: "I gotta recycle this!"

This bottle was a project I did for CCB as a crew member.

Cool looking but - meh. Those big, metal wings were calling to me! So I started over!

I covered the bottle in an old, yellowed newspaper. I then put together my assemblage of old clock parts on a strip of wood amd added extras!

That top metal piece is from our gutter spout when hubby replaced them 😃

Rusty wire is wrapped around it to secure my assemblage and gives it a cool affect. 

So much happier with this!  What do you think?! Now I'm going to look around my house to see what else I can makeover!

  1. Cathy, I'm always impressed with your eye for the unusual! Yes, this is an amazing makeover, and I love the little Paper Dolls perched on the rusty parts. I'm thrilled you're playing along in our Let's Do It Again challenge at The Funkie Junkie Boutique blog! Hugs!

  2. OMGosh how cool is this????? You are a great artist!!!! Thanks for joining us at the Funkie Junkie Boutique Blog. Hugs from Ginny at Polly's Paper Studio : )

  3. What a fun and funkie do over of the bottle. Love that you added so many extra bits this time around. Thanks for joining us at The Funkie Junkie Boutique Blog.

  4. A fabulous do-over... love the newspaper look for the bottle itself, and the figures perched within the wire caging, but it's that steampunk clock creation which steals the show. Inventive, imaginative... love it.
