A Very Merry Holiday Steampunk Blog Hop

Happy Holidays everyone and welcome to my very first Steampunk Project EVER!  Leslierahye has been trying to get me on the Steampunk Bandwagon for close to a year now, I honestly didn’t get it (I still only sort of get Steampunk but I am digging the gear thingies).  I found some washers and gears in the garage which made me think hey let me try that whole Steampunk thing.

My Tree was quite simple I used 9 washers and various gear thingies (I am sure that is the technical term)  to form a tree.  I laid it all out to see if it would work, instead of pulling out the glue and gluing piece by piece, I disassembled it.  With the Metal Glue in my hand I had to quickly figure out what I was doing.  Surprisingly it went well and I was able to get it back together and make it look like a tree.  I took some thin copper wire and wrapped the tree (I thought it needed a little more intrest).  I really liked how it looked but the Princess thought I needed some color, so I pulled out some metallic red Dew Drops.  I really love how this piece turned out and not too shabby for my first Steampunk Piece if I do say so myself.
