Lavender, plant hangers and more cushions

There are a lot of things I've made in the last month but haven't found time to blog about.
One of these things is the lavender I made, to add to the cushion I showed you here, for prettier pictures :)

I painted thin wire with a mixure of cottage green and gray acrylic, and cut it into 3 a 4 cm pieces. Dipped the tip into some Tacky glue and right after in a mixture of two shades of Flower soft from Minidoor. After the glue had dried I carefully sprayed some hairspray over them.

For future plants I want to buy some lycopodium at Silly Sisters, but for now I found a very tiny plastic christmas tree which I painted with the same mixture as the wire and then cut the branches xD

I like my first lavender plant :) It looks cute in the flower pot I made previously, and it matches the colours of the cushion.

Of course I also wanted a matching plant hanger, a little purple one this time. And to show it properly I made a stand from Balsa :)

Next I made another cushion. This time without fringes, but with fabric on the back and filled with seed beads so it feels more natural. I love the colours and feel of this one!

An off white macramé planthanger with wooden beads, too fit with all kinds of flower pots and plants. And yes, I really need to start making (more) plants :P

Something else I tried, just for fun, was a glass bottle wrapped in macramé. Not too shabby for the first time, but lot of improvement :)

Also, I'm working on a bigger macramé item, though I'm still not sure what it will be. Depends on the final size, I guess ;) It could be a throw for a bed or a sofa, or even a rug.
At the moment it's 8,5 x 5 cm, and I think it will be 8,5 x 10 cm when it's finished aka when the threads become too short ;)
