Make an Art Piece using Second-Hand Curtain Rings


Last week a friend of mine was clearing out one of her cupboards and found a bag of second hand curtain fittings that she’d purchased for $3 from an op shop. She very kindly gave the bag to me to do something with (thanks Donna!!)

So I made this Art Piece out of the old curtain rings!
I just used a piece of good-quality plywood that I had lying around, and glued the rings on with Liquid Nails. I worked out the placement of the rings first, and then glued each one. If you were trying something similar, just make sure that the balance of any darker (or even coloured would be nice) rings is even and works well with the rest of the placement of your curtain rings. 

Although the design is simple, it looks very effective hanging up. It is quite similar to my Cup Circles Painting. I’ve currently got it hanging on the exterior of my house near an eating area – this art piece is nice and hardy so it will be fine outside under the verandah.

And I’ve got some more projects to come out of that same bag of second hand curtain fittings! Watch this space!

Happy making!
