Last week I ended up wearing an entirely black outfit to work, which I decided was missing something just before I left the house. As I'm totally down with the kids and trendy and whatnot, I decided it needed some neon jewellery.
Unfortunately, my jewellery box yielded nothing in neon (unsurprisingly, really, as all my jewellery is made of Lego figures), so I decided to raid my ribbon stash* and find an alternative option. I ended up stitching together two strands of bright pink cord, which had previously been the handles of a cardboard shopping bag(!), with a clashing neon thread.
Post clear-out, our house is looking much tidier; but I felt like it needed a few more personal touches (made on the cheap, obviously). After witnessing the incredible things Thomas Poulsom can do with Lego, I decided to try my own Lego project. Sadly, it wasn't a grandfather clock - but I'm certainly going to build up to that once I've sourced 7,000 additional bricks. This is what I came up with instead:
|Each piece is about 20cm and 6cm deep. |
I would've made them bigger, but I ran out of bricks.
The letters are now in pride of place on our living room fireplace, and I'm grateful to know that if anyone knocks them off they'll be much easier to put back together than our other ornaments.
What do you think?
* Which is actually kept in my bargainous button box- to confuse any thieves looking for my button collection. Mwhahaha.
