Elastic bands cut and fitted into a peg …. looks a bit bone like…11 is starting to be my favourite number

#148. Pepsi pear.

#144. Take away art.

Like with a lot of these silly creations I don’t check if anyone has done it before but this is one I’m sure of…. but I love it anyway…I’ve printed directly on to the lid…They would work just great as stand up picture frames.

Kind of Disney inspired as I bought these sticky eyes there today… with drinking straws and yogurt pot – makes a squid or jelly fish.

polystyrene cups with holes and joined with a balloon…looks a bit like a sailor too??

?

#125. Ball and socket

A lazy one but I kinda like it… a crown silver light bulb in a tin can, might be a ball and socket joint?

#123. Clipped

4 clips, clipped together… paper clip big clips

#122. Hook store.

A third of the year and this is the best I can do, I may as well…store my collection of coat hanging bits in a scrubbing brush. hangers

A big jubilee clip crushing a tin can, I like how you can’t see the destruction until it’s turned round.

2 for 1 – Elastic bands and cocktail sticks….

#118. Transformer.

Had fun with 25 multi sockets as they were on offer at local supermarket at 25 pence each… Impressed my son with this one when I lit it up . This one looks a lot better in real life.

#117. Handle cotton.

Just cotton round and round… kind of an ergonomic handle, but had to go a bit further and did a tine…

 

#116. Cotton cocktail.

Err…cotton wrapped onto a cocktail stick… It’s probably the smallest thing so far.

 

 

#115. Balloon belt.

Back to some silliness… balloon blown up with elastic band on – it adds definition… Realised afterwards it looks like a…..

Another little light… I like the use of the big clip to help it stand up.

Hmmmm… I have been wanting to dye a mop for a few weeks now, finally did it today and now I’ve forgotten why. I guess it subverts your normal reaction to it.

#107. Clip on..

I guess it’s nice when the days are connected..I bought some big clips today and then used the bulb from yesterday. Low voltage runs through the clip to help light it.

 

#106. Pie lamp..

I kinda like this… daft little delicate lamps.. could be a theme? Used a pen case for stand.

#105. Mug plug..

Ok, so it should be called mug plug hole, but I like to keep things simple and the rhyme is probably the only reason I went with this today, other experiments never panned out… I also must say something to everyone who is following this project… Thankyou!

Not very everyday in my house, but couldn’t resist buying these chutney pots – 8 for a pound…. drilled and botled together….Similar to Brancusi’s ?

I don’t really know why I did this… but it fits with my favourite theme of making objects not work anymore.

#101. Electric candle

So…. I had this switch stuck on a can for ages, then today I put a candle in the can to get the idea but thought it would be better on just a bigger candle. I think having two switches makes it even weirder…

 

 

#100. Watering can.

Not sure I want to turn this into a milestone but I have…. Found some water taps in the garage and I turned to one of my reliable friends the tin can and voila….

#90. Brush mix

I can’t leave brushes alone…. So I mixed up a sweeping brush with a washing up brush.

#89. Elastic mop.

For some reason I felt I should make my own mop, then spotted a bag of elastic bands and finished off with a plunger handle. It would be quite useless as a mop, I’ll try and discovery another use for it…7/10

#88. Mop up

I tried different ways to contain and make a mop stand up, then I remembered I had this mesh…

#87. Fire ball starter

Kindle in a dog ball….three different pics of it.

#85. Halogen horn

er… more mockery.

Horn part and an old halogen bulb

#84. Door brush.

handles

#83. Dust ball

A duster in a dog ball toy… a baby toy? or just throw it round the room while cleaning.

 

#82. Cocktail grater

I have been wanting to find something to use in a grater for awhile and then along came (well bought) cocktail sticks. I then realised that they have a connection with cheese…. you might think of a better name for this one.

Cheese polisher or Dust grater?

#80. Going down the toilet?

A world made from a toilet float….

#74 Electric brush

 

A fake electric sweeping brush…

#73. Plug stack

So I was messing about with plugs, trying desperately to put them together with something and make them special. I was getting no where, so I decided to keep it simple. Having them in pairs kind of makes this nearly work…electricplug

#72. Soap roller

A washing up roller made using 18 sponge scourers and elastic bands.
