#AlphabetPhoto: T is for….

tiny wine goblets

Sitting on the ledge of a window in our kitchen is a collection of tiny silver goblets. Made from the shiny foil that is often found protecting chocolate. If carefully peeled off the chocolate, the paper can be wrapped around the end of a pencil and crafted into a goblet fit for a king. A king the size of a mouse, but no less a king.

Well. It’s either that or scrunched up and put in the recycling bin.

It’s Wednesday. #AlphabetPhoto linky day. My T is for tiny. Are you joining in?

      They are fun to make (and a little bit addictive)!

    Ah so pretty! I’m an incessant fiddler with bits of foil and wire so will definitely give these a go. Though Arthur would probably eat them… x

      Children love small play. There are more of these goblets lurking in the dolls’ house.

    I remember my Father making good use of silver chocolate wrappers, he used to make pictures by painting glass black and leaving the (for instance, a crinoline lady ) bare and filling in the dress etc with coloured wrappers, it used to look so effective.

      I bet they did look amazing. Clever idea. Such a versatile craft resource. Seems such a shame just to bin it.

      They are fun, and kind of satisfying to make.

    Wow. They are great. I guess they are quite fiddly but fun to make?

      It works well when you need to entertain the children at the table. I teach them origami too, although they’ve reached the stage where they are teaching me!

    In my head, I am imagining your house as museum of pretty things! With interesting crafts like this all around =) #alphabetphoto
