Happy Friday I hope everyone’s Friday is going well! I’m getting this post out before I head down to Milwaukee this weekend!
A few weeks a go I found these vintage glass electrical insulators at a rummage sale for $3.00 for all six. I had seen a few different things that people have done with insulators. My first inclination was to make a coat rack…but I don’t have the room for one. I saw lamps made from insulators, and then I saw candle holders! I knew I found what I was going to make.
- Wire cutters
- Rope/Twine or something similar
Once cleaned I took the wire and cut it so that I would have enough to make hooks and secure the ends together. I twisted the first end around a pen, and then wrapped it around the insulator.
Next I secured wrapped the rest of the loose wire around the insulator and wrapped the lose end around one of the loops.
Then I took some string that I had (which I don’t like and I’m going to swap out for some twine) and cut to the same length and tied together at one end, to create a loop to hang from a hook. The loose ends I tied to the loops.
