I hope you had a wonderful day today!!
2012 has been such a wonderful year. And I am so excited for 2013!! I saw some glitter numbers from Martha Stewart and thought it would be fun to make some 3-D versions that were a little bigger as photo props.
And when I was at Lowe’s the other day I found some plumbing insulation. I thought it would be perfect to make some GIANT numbers. And for$1 per length, I decided to give it a try.
Here’s how I made the giant numbers:
I took the plumbing insulating lengths and wrapped them with some light wire I found in the picture hanging aisle. You see, the plumbing insulation has a slit all the way through and I needed to shut the slit. I was also hoping that I could use the wire to shape the numbers. I found out that the wire I used was too thin to shape the numbers. It did a great job holding the insulation shut but wasn’t strong enough to hold it in position.
I experimented with coat hangers and found that it was almost thick enough to hold the numbers in place. So I headed back to Lowe’s. I found some heavy-duty wire that is used in chain link fences. I bought some and put the wire through the center of the plumbing insulation lengths. It worked perfectly.
One the wire was through the center, I shaped the numbers. And then I wrapped them in cheap $1 tinsel.
This is a fun photo prop idea and also, I used it for a New Year’s Eve Party. And I made some FREE printables too!! I will share those tomorrow night.
And Lowe’s is giving one of YOU a special Christmas gift!
