Have you seen Terry Border’s work? If not, you MUST! He takes wire, pliers, and everyday objects and turns them into the most FABULOUS characters. I only recently discovered his blog, Bent Objects, and nearly died laughing at all his little friends! Terry also has a new book out called Bent Objects: The Secret Life of Everyday Things. I am dying to get my hands on that book!
Anyway, after looking at his entire blog and discovering his basic wire bending how-to, I decided to try a little “bent object” of my own. I busted out some of the dollar store floral wire I’ve been hoarding and went to town:
(Please, feel free to mock me and my deformed birdie; there is NO comparison between Terry’s work and my feeble first attempt!)
The possibilities for this idea are endless! What object will YOU bend?
[go to Terry’s basic wire bending how-to]
floral wire, $1
pliers, $1 or on hand
object to personify, on hand
Total: $1 and up
