When I stopped by my local Thrift Shop I found this-
It is a Vintage Dressmaking Tool used for hemming Dresses and Skirts.
I am sure your Grandma would have used this to hem her skirts.
Maybe you remember having to stand on the table to have your Mom hem a dress.
You can adjust the height when marking your hem.
There are wing nuts on the base and top.
I noticed that the wood ruler portion can be swapped out if you come across one
that is broken. The wood portion can also be changed to a wood yard stick.
I was really surprised that the base was so stable.
My plan was to see if I could repurpose this tool into a Table Top Wreath Holder!
......and...... It worked !
It was able to hold a wreath without tipping over.
Seed box filled with Lavender
What a great way to hang a lightweight wreath on a table top.
It also would be a good way to display a wreath in front of a mirror or window.
Here it is on the bathroom counter in front of the mirror.
The paper wreath is made with pattern tissue paper.
Cut into 2'' x 2'' squares
Use the eraser end of a pencil, in the center of each square and
a dab of white glue and attach to a single embroidery hoop.
Glue inside the circle edge, and the outside edge and top.
Just like back in Elementary School!
Do you remember tissue paper art projects? It will ALL come back to you!
Thank you for your visit, it means so much to me.
