Snowflake Monday

I've been collecting plastic lids for probably about four years. I wondered if I could create a snowflake with lids and beads.

I fashioned an easy snowflake from matching lids for my first attempt.

I thought Glue-All would hold everything together.

Unfortunately, Glue-All didn't hold. Darn it.

Super Glue didn't hold.

I was about to try model cement when I read other lid art had been created with a glue gun. I decided to give it a try. After all, model glue has such an odor...

The next day, it looked great. But would it hold up under its own weight?


  1. That is sure a neat one. Always plenty of ideas under your sun. Orlin would go diving in those caps, likes to bat them around.

    1. I would LOVE to see film of Orlin diving into a paper bag full of lids, Pat! That would be an awesome Friday Funny!

  2. I absolutely love this idea! So creative! Ok.......gotta get collecting clear lids - in Southern NM we rarely see snow! Thank you for sharing!

    1. Thanks, Miaismine! Where in NM?!? I'm from Alamogordo and Las Cruces!

  3. I was about to suggest E6000, but no need! Glue gun to the rescue! What a fun project.

    1. I haven't heard of E6000, Sue. But yet, the glue gun did work.
