One of my favourite things about visiting the Museum was the gum ball machine in the shop - except it didn’t give out gumballs, it gave out crystals! I’ve always had a love of crystals, gems, minerals and all those beautiful things that nature has created. So this DIY immediately caught my eye - and then I saw the part that said ‘no tools required’ and I was hooked! There are lots of shops on etsy selling crystals. My favourites are amethyst, pink druzy and carnelian. Layer them up or wear a single pendant on a long chain.
I decided to use fake flowers until I could get my hands on some real ones, which I don’t currently have the money for. I am so in love with this idea.
I wanted to replicate the scenery Bill was in originally but I wanted pretty flowers too. The idea of the towns people being too afraid to go near his statue so the forest starting to grow around him and flowers sprouting in the spring seemed like a pretty fitting excuse for it.
