Wall/Photo Hanging made of Yarn and Skewers

It was my friend's birthday and I wanted to gift her something made by me. I had her pics from our various trips outside. So thought of getting them printed and prepare a wall hanging. If you will look at the below pics carefully you will be able to make out how simple it is to prepare it. It requires only a yarn,4 skewers and few stuff to make them look pretty. I made the hanging double sided. One side are the coloured pics and other side black n white and sepia images. So total of 8 images. Here is how it looks.

Recycled/ upcycled / Altered Glass Bottles

I had few used olive oil glass bottles at home. So thought of trying my hands at painting them with my acrylic paints. Painting on bottle is much different then on canvas. Had to give them multiple coatings to give a finished look. Here is how it looks.

hope you like them.
