The tutorial for the September meeting at the NOTL Library Cafe showed how to make a planter from a dowel cap finial, a plastic chess piece, and scraps of lace and string.
This picture shows the dowel cap and chess piece.
The plastic dowel piece is sawed flat using a craft saw, and the dowel cap is glued in place with Crazy Glue. Then go to town applying lace bits and trim. 
Apply a coat of Gesso to the plastic chess piece so paint will stick. 
Next, choose the paint effect. In this case, the group chose a metallic finish. Isn't it fascinating how unique each planter appears!

 Cindy brought her corset to show us, possibly a future project....absolutely gorgeous!
