My Creative Space

I'm getting sticky fingers this week playing with PVA glue and string!
With the cold winter weather I wanted to get my hands into something gooey! My first thought was papier mache but that is too messy! So I decided to make a string bowl using just glue and winding string around and around until voila a bowl! So, I'm getting stringy!

Have you joined in with Kootoyoo's Creative Space?

Actually, thinking of string - it brings a song to mind from The Goodies..."String, string, string string, everybody loves string!"


  1. that's hilarious! I remember that Goodies episode and the song! Can't wait to see the finished product here. I notice you are well into your first pregnancy - me too! Only a few weeks left for us, and I left my crafting run a bit late! Am squeezing in quite a bit, but am getting a bit tired now so slowing down. Good luck with everything!

  2. LOL, I remember that song from the Goodies. Love to see your bowl when it is finished too.

  3. AWESOME! the best thing about PVA glue is peeling the dried glue off your fingers! ...yes I am easily excitable.

  4. I'm with Bianca, I love the peeling off the skin bit too. I must say though that I reckon messy crafts are more for the warmer months when you can do them outside. have fun getting sticky and looking forward to seeing the end result.

  5. Double flash backs to childhood memories, the goodies and the wonderful feeling of peeling glue off fingers. I loved kitten kong and was so happy to find it's on DVD, shared it with my own kids too. Have a great gluey stringy weekend...
