If you are a Steampunk fan and a lover of all things Christmas, then you are at the right place!
Most of my Steampunk creations are created through Leslie's 'themed' blog hops. :)
I was inspired by the ones I see on Pintrest made from light bulbs, so I thought, why not using a ornament?
24 and 26 gauge gold floral wire
A wooden train whistle
I also wrapped some wire by itself around the whistle to make for a strong base.
Then I made a large spiral with the thicker wire and sewed it in place with the thinner wire.
I'm sorry I don't have a tutorial on how to wrap the ornament with wire. I kinda made it up as I went. It was fairly easy though and I'm sure you wont have any problem especially if you like to work with wire.
The basket, however...was the trickiest for me. It took me many tries of various ideas until I found something that was easy enough to explain and looked great at the end.
I hope you like it!
A vintage Santa ornament fit perfectly into the basket!
