Today it is wet and miserable here, not so much April showers as April down pours. Bleurgh. It did remind of a lovely little decoration I'd been inspired to make after seeing a similar one. A simple cloud, which I felt simply needed the addition of raindrops. So I immediately got to work. I used:
- some thick beading wire
- my heart punch
- some white paper
- some insulation tape
- some thin white cotton
- some normal sticky tape
I shaped the beading wire into the cloud shape I was after and then wrapped it with the blue insulation tape to make it stand out a bit. Next I punched out several hearts and used those to create the rain drops (cut in half and slightly shaped). I tied the cotton onto the cloud shape and added my half heart rain drops to the cotton and that was it. I was finished. Tah Dah. A nice easy peasy craft that still looks super effective now.
I think you could possibly make this work as a coat hanger too, a flat bottom to the cloud, without the raindrops, and then add a hook to the top. That would make it into something useful, as opposed to just looking pretty.
