A story of piece of rusty chick wire and a glass pot

Remember my last post about the rusty chick wire I found? Here is the result...

And this is how I started...
a piece of rusty chick wire...

remove the sharp ones
coat with some white paint
wrap around a glass pot
(pitch the wire to have good fit around the glass curve)
fill up with some marble
actually I am pretty done at this stage...
but Mei Mei and Jojo add some 'finishing touch' to it after school..
with some beads garland I made for them earlier.

we have some good time lighting it up at night

(P/S : note from Mei Mei - Mom, can you take away the candle
and fill in some water? - My beta fish want this for her castle!)
