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!
