What Can You Do With A Washer?

Pin It!

Well another brainstorm came my way. I was at the Home Depot and thought …What can I do with a washer? I bet you will be running out to the hardware store tonight. Check it out!

Oh, how fun......I am going to try these also. I'm looking forward to what you do with these.....

Too cute or should I say pretty... Thinking of making one of the PBS Swappers Weekly Challenges out of your technique here Christie. Thanks for sharing!

Yes All beautiful,

Have you tried Loc Washers--not as much surface, but a different dimension.

Christi B June 8, 2010 at 10:26 AM  

These are gorgeous! I'm thinking they would be a pretty mobile, kept out of reach of course! But what a pretty and dimensional mobile it would make!

Cool idea :) TFS

Great idea!!! I too love playing with alcohol inks and you just gave me a new medium on which to pounce! Thanks so much!

Very cool idea! Can't wait to see what you create with these

Christie, These are beautiful and what a great way to be able to paint the washers. I made a bracelet with washers and painted some of them with alcohol inks but I had a heck of a time doing that. Your tut would have helped me. I think I'll try what you did and also add some stickles. Thanks. If you'd like to see my bracelet, it's at http://www.bloombakecreate.com/2010/02/one-ufo-sighted-and-finished/

Kristie Maynard June 8, 2010 at 9:24 PM  

Great idea! I'm thinking up some great combos already and ways to use them. Thanks for the idea and inspiration!

Darla June 8, 2010 at 9:29 PM  

Wow!! Wonderful idea!!
btw... why the magnets on your stickles??? how do you store those?

Jill June 8, 2010 at 10:52 PM  

These are so cool, Christie. I had to jump on Joanne.com and order me some alcohol inks. This is the second thing I saw on your blog that I just gotta get. The other one was those containers you used for your chipboard letters. I thought they might work great for things like brads and buckles and such, so I had to order me some of those too...lol! They would probably be great for these washers too. Thank you so much for all these neat ideas!

Oh my gosh, what a creative idea, love it!
Thank you for sharing.

Don't you just ADORE alcohol inks? I know, I do!
looks lovely!

I have little ones, and I think the large washer would make great tokens (earn 10 tokens for good behavior, get a prize), play money, practice lacing, glue a flower on one side and a magnet on the other, or make beautiful musical instruments (I've seen wind chimes, castinets, tambourines, and shakers using washers.

Great idea especialy the tape bit got a head full of ideas all ready

Mungo June 10, 2010 at 10:49 AM  

A brilliant idea and a super effect

Christy June 11, 2010 at 9:38 AM  

Nice idea, how well do these hold up, say if i were to use them for jewlery? should i coat them with something. this also gave me an idea to use my epoxy resin to color the metals.

Paula November 22, 2010 at 11:07 PM  

Love this and tried my hand at it this evening.
Here's the end resultwith a link back to your site. Thanks for sharing!
