|Finished Goblet cup|
|The eventual cup. Just need to figure |
out a stand to raise it up a bit.
I wanted to try out the flames and the light, just to see if I would need to make adjustments or anything, so I grabbed a plastic pot that I had picked up for the mandrake roots and taped on the flames. It then occurred to me that I could actually just use the pot that is currently on my porch and filled with petunias. It has a stand and is very cup shaped. It's also sufficiently big enough to hold the light and still have room to periodically turn on the light after the 1 hour automatic turn-off.
Sooo...bit of a wasted time in making the paper mache cup...BUT it led to something better. So it's all good.
|Ocean lights in the pot. Not sure how big or how |
many flames I'll use, but this isn't a bad start.
Just had a thought on the stand for the cup--the mattress box from my recently bought day bed is....possibly the right size. Tipped on its side, it would get the cup high enough. Would just depend on how easily I could disguise it to not look like...huh. I also have a stand I inherited from my mom...it has some dragon figures on it. It's a little smaller, but it miiiight work. Hmmm...I think I'll have to go search the garage, see if there's some similar items that might work for a stand.
