You gotta believe this and try it yourself too!

Remember this 'thing' which I share with you some times ago?

Did you  manage to guess what it is?

or what it could have made from?

Well, it a 'faux stainless steel' thing which I 'discovered' 
unintentionly when I...


...decided to have a "Ramen" for a quick lunch...

Ramen to "Faux stainless steel"?
Yup, I couldn't believe too but it's really looking pretty good
and much easier and better than the faux mirror mosaic 'invention' I done previously.
I need to emphasis again...It's really SUPER DUPER EASY!

Here is the 'newest crap invention'...

Open up the ramen wrapper...

Have a potato chip and save the tube...

Wrap the wrapper around the tube...
check the 'grain' of the foil...length wise and width wise give different impact!
I found mine is perfect when wrapped it length wise.

Don't pull the edge too tight when fixing the wrapper onto the tube,
slightly pull and pinch the pattern will 'come out' by itself!
How? Why?  I don't know?  Try it and you see!

The result is absolutely stunning...
just like a new piece of stainless steel object.

Not camera tricks guys... what you see is absolutely original!

I don't have any idea what to do with it yet...
I don't really need any 'stainless steel' vase at the moment...
What do you think?  What possibilities can I transfer this idea into?

Just feel happy and clueless looking at them...

"Start by doing what's necessary;
then do what's possible;
and suddenly you are doing the impossible."
~St. Francis of Assisi~

Hope this super crap stuff inspire your day!

  1. They're pretty cool, PC. You could add a base and a top and make them into candle holders!

  2. @Laina @ Vibrant Serenity Thanks for the idea, my dear! I would give it a try! How's your house redo?

  3. Our ramen comes in clear plastic, but I wonder if regular aluminum foil would work. I see some experiments coming! Thanks for linking to Wicked Awesome Wednesday!

  4. That is so clever - I would never have guessed!! A very cool vase!

  5. That is very bizarre and cool. What a pretty look - and I do love a mystery! You could turn one into a lamp base, maybe?

    You have such a way with materials, PC!

  6. @Handy Man, Crafty WomanSo glad you willing to give it a try - but I think the material need to have some elasticity in order to form the pattern. Good luck and have fun!

  7. @Michelle L.Your mystery things posts inspired me so much! Thanks!

  8. very are super smart my friend :)

  9. This is so awesome! I wish our Ramen came in packages like that - ours is just plastic inside and out.

  10. @CREATIVE MINDSo glad to hear it from u! You are my inspiration!

  11. @Jessica @ O. AlouetteYes, in fact most of the dry food pack in such material. Well, you may experiment with different material - who knows the outcome may amazed you!

  12. What a great look! they would look super cool with candles around them reflecting in the silver!

    Thanks for linking to a Round Tuit!
    Hope you have a great week!
