Go Fish! Repurposed Fish Ice Cube Wreath

FISH ICE CUBE WREATH

Last month I found some cool  fish shaped ice cubes at a local big box store and bought a package to make a fun mixed media piece using copper foil to decorate the fish:

I went to the same store and discovered the fish shaped ice cubes were 1/2 price and couldn’t resist getting  more packages because now they were only $1.50!  I thought it would be fun to make a whimsical fish wreath to use up my stash of copper wire.

I already had the gold macramé ring and a pretty pearl necklace from a garage sale.

I attached the necklace with a dabs of hot glue around the ring and then started to wrap the copper wire haphazardly.  Afterwards I used hot glue to attach each fish.

Finally, I added more copper wire to fill up the wreath with color and texture.

It is fun to think outside of the box and use unexpected craft materials!
