Decorative Recycled Drinking Glass Stand - stand turned upside down balanced on the curled fastenersPaper fasteners sometimes run out of locks so, I have a bundle of these which I have collected for months. Even though they are still useful as paper fasteners even without the locks, nobody seemed to ever want to use this stuff without its partner. So, instead of letting them lay about, I thought of making something else out of them.

Supplies:

  • 10 pieces of metal fasteners or more
  • hot glue
  • glue gun
  • drinking glass

Steps:

  1. Take two metal fasteners. Loop them around the glass to take it's shape.
  2. Decorative Recycled Drinking -
Glass Stand - start with glass and two of the fasteners
     
    Decorative Recycled Drinking Glass Stand - wrap them around the glass creating a circle, glue together
     
  3. Stick the two together with hot glue. This will form a circular base.
  4. Take another piece and bend it about an inch from its tip to form a letter "L".
  5. Decorative Recycled Drinking Glass Stand - bend up an inch on a third fastener
     
  6. Do the same to the other 7 pieces. You can make more "Ls" as you wish.
  7. Decorative Recycled Drinking Glass Stand - repeat with the other 7 fasteners
