Thank you to all my blog friends who gave me such great feedback after I posted my version of handmade camp roasting sticks made for kids. How about I share a grown up more glamorous version of these perfect for those glamping trips!
According to the Urban Dictonary, "Glamping" is shorthand for luxury or glamorous camping. Easy to make, these roasting sticks will be the perfect addition to your arsenal of glamping accessories. Here's how to do it.
You will also need some recycled wire hangers (like those that Mommie Dearest detests), some recycled vintage text pages and miscellaneous bling and baubles from your stash. I used embellishments by Prima purchased from Scrapbook.com along with bits and pieces of old brooches, jewelry chain, etc.
Once the dowels are dry to the touch, randomly rub them with a wax candle to create random areas that when sanded, will act as a resist to create a distressed finish. Paint the top coat using Halo Violet, Metallic Silver or Magenta.
- Use Aleenes Liquid Fusion to adhere hard embellishments such as resin flowers and rhinestone jewelry chain
- Wrap bits of soft trims while drying with a rubber band to hold in place until glue has set.
- Use jewelry wire to attach larger pieces such as old brooches or earrings.
- Leave 4-5" at the top of the dowel so you have a place to hold it without disturbing all the bling
Gather your recycled clothes hangers and straigthen them out into one long straight piece of wire with pliers. Use wire nips to remove any excess wire. Place liquid fusion on one end of the wire and insert it into the drilled hole.
