Gothic Arches

I should say first that I didn't make this :-) DH has a laser cutter, he found some plans on the net for some gothic arches and after much cursing and waiting for glue to dry, here is the result. They are made of clear acrylic (very difficult to photograph!) and I have put a Yankee candle next to them for scale.

The question is, what do I do with them now?? I have vague ideas of making them into a Christmas decoration, but if any of you have any other suggestions, I would love to hear them!

  1. well done on a the making and b the photography. they look fabulous. hmmm what to use them for - pass....looking forward to seeing what they end up being used for

  2. I would use them as a decoration, you could hang baubles/random seasonal decorations from them. Spray paint them... They llok great, worth the time and effort :)

  3. ooh they look fab, maybe you could make some sort of Halloween decoration, hang ghosts etc from them

  4. Very cool! You could alcohol ink them :) Or keep them clear or neutral and do what Jenny said, hang interchangeable seasonal decs from them...

  5. Oh-- here's an idea: Sell them to a wedding shop as a cake topper... all they'd have to add is the little bride and groom underneath, and maybe drape the arches with little wirey vines or flowers. Kinda like a trellis.
