What can you do with a $3 bolt of wire?
When you are on sites like Pottery Barn they have so many things created out of wire that don't really look that difficult to make.
So over the past week, this is what I have made for $3 with wire (and still have some left over):
I have made the wire photo holders (version 1) (version 2)
Made the word 'love' (18 wide) to put above a photo. I think I might spray paint it with Oil Rubbed Bronze.
There is nothing really complicated with any of these designs. They were easy to make and only took a short time.
The one tip I have is don't bend the wire too much until you are sure it is in the position you want. The wire is forgiving but not if you do a 'hard' bend on it.
What do you think of my $3 spent? Not bad huh!
