This month, the Whiff of Joy project of the month (POM) is to decorate a plant holder. I was stumped for an idea for a long time and then I thought of making a decorative Bishop’s hook. The basket is something I have had for a long time and the ribbon probably even longer. The ribbon was actually the starting point in my choice of colors! Not my usual palette at all but I really love it! Of course all the gorgeous images are WOJ!
All my images were colored with Copic Markers and I airbrushed the backgrounds of the charms. As you can see, for the three charms, I have only used a portion of the stamps. I cut them out with my nestabilities circles and then punched tiny holes on the top. I also cut out matching circles out of thick glossy cardboard and adhered these to the back of my images. I then covered all the images with Versamark and embossed them with Ultra Thick Embossing Powder. This gives them a nice protective and glossy finish. The charms were attached together using some leftover chain link from my jewelry making stash. The other charm is something I made out of bits and bobs from my stash. The Bishop’s Hook was picked up at my local dollar store and has a double prong at the bottom to make it very sturdy. I ran out to the flower shop and was so happy to find these begonias that were a perfect color match! I think this is a fun way to dress up a little plant that you give to someone.
My fellow Whiff of Joy DT have all made the most amazing projects. There are so many different ideas for you to drool over. You can see them all in the WOJ POM section and then you can click on links to go directly to their blogs!
Have a great day. If you scroll one post down, you’ll see another WOJ creation that I made for a very special birthday girl!
