Jigsaw Flower Pot Sticks

Hi, do you find yourself with a load of jigsaw pieces that you have saved and forgotten you had them, yep thats what happened to me..............have used them to make brooches and other crafty things but not like this..........I wonder why..............lol  Am sure I must be totally bonkers.  Here are a few of the Flower Pot Sticks.


Sorry about the clarity of the photos but crackle accents is very difficult to photograph successfully.

The sticks are quite long but had to photograph it like this otherwise it would have been all sticks and no pictures.

Products used:  Jigsaw Pieces, Coffee Stirrers (from Asda's cafe) Crafty Individual Miniatures, Crackle Accents, Black Gesso, Viva Inka Copper and Metal pieces from Stash.

After I made these I looked through the challenges going on and do you know not one challenge is after anything like this...............wonder why..................lol

Wishing you a very happy week and thank you for popping in.  Take care of yourselves, Annette x
