The topic: The carousel

----------------------------------------------

Got the photos up over on the album (there are twenty) and I'll share some of them here.

First, let's see the little video:

 

The "tent" portion, the top portion and the mirrored center:

Keeping the mirrors clean while I add embellishments:

 

It took me over four hours to put these little beads along the edge. I got them on eBay, they're only 2mm wide. I had no idea they'd be so small, I've got plenty of rulers around here that have millimeter on them, you'd think I'd have checked. But I like how it turned out. 

All parts are assembled and attached:

Time to add the horses and poles. For some reason, the length between the top and the bottom wasn't equal at all holes. I had to do each one individually. On my next one, the holes that are on the bottom two pieces for the "poles" will have matching holes on the top so the pole will go through both the top and bottom.

Horses and poles installed (I used black stirring straws I got on Amazon and wrapped curling ribbon around them for the gold), lights are added. I added holes for the top for the lights, except for some reason I had in my mind there were thirty lights on each strand. I was wrong. There were only twenty. And after it was finished Brian said it would look even cooler if there had been some lights in at the inside top, over the horses. Thinking it over, I can do this and it will probably be a lot easier. Tape doesn't stick too well to that paper and I tried three different types of tape. banana

As I said, you can see more of these photos over on my album. Clicking on a picture here will open up a new window over there. And to see the photo even bigger, click on it on the album.

This carousel is part of SVGCuts Carousel Ride Kit. As with all of their kits, you can find the instructional video over on their YouTube channel.
