Day 13!!!!!

 Hello and welcome! Donna-my oldest is 13 (who showed me the video, my youngest is 7). Today I have some solder dominoes. I brought out the small dominoes again. I sanded them down and added some distress green stain and stamped them with a studio G skull stamp.  When I cleaned the flux off, some of the images and ink faded. So, I'm saying I made them look 'vintage'.
 Here's a little soldering tip. I don't have fancy soldering tools, so when I go to add jump rings, I use my fancy clip or a fancy clothespin. 
This is the main part of my Halloween decorations! This year I didn't go all out like last year, ran out of time. My dad and I (ok so really it was my dad, I held the wood as he cut) built this, using these instructions.  The dreaming Lyneen is next! Enjoy!
