Don't whine about a broken wine glass

Here's what I do with a chipped or broken wineglass...

I turn it into a piece of art

The angel uses the cup (even with a small chip on the rim) as the angel's skirt

The wings of this angel, I free-hand cut out like a scherenschnitte and I love the way the filigree of paper gives it an even more delicate look.And just because I LOVE roses, the base holds an everlasting rose.

I'm sharing this with....

You are so clever - who would have thought not to just discard that broken wine glass. Do you sell those angels in your shop? As I am one who collects angels - going to check out your shop again!

Thanks so much Pam - Sometimes that poor little chipped glass is part of a set that is just beautiful or has sentimental value. This is at least a way to keep it. I haven't put these on Etsy yet but, I think I'm going to have to now! Do you have a chipped glass now that you'd want me to make into an angel?
