You girls are truly wonderful! Thank you so much for all your words of support, advice, and encouragement on my last post! I really love and appreciate each one of you!
I have managed to set some jingle bells outside to rust. I loaded up when Hobby Lobby had their bags 50% off! That included the ones in the Christmas section that were in big tubes. It always excites me to get my supplies so cheap. I had such a huge grin when I was walking out of the store. Is anyone else as cheesy as me? Lol!
My thoughtful husband saw my platter of bells and said "It's going to rain, those bells are gonna rust, you better get them inside". Haha! When I told him that was my plan, he just looked at me like I was crazy then went on about his business without saying a word. He's just used to it by now.
That was on September 8th. Here it is two weeks later and they are doing pretty good:
The bigger ones are going pretty slow. I will have to move them to a deeper dish so they will be completely covered.
So you girls that rust bells the natural way... how long does it usually take? I check my water level every few days to fill it up and give them a shake. My itty, bitty ones are probably done. They are so tiny, so cute! You can't even see them, they are covered in the water. I can't wait to use them!
Have fun crafting and creating! Till next time~
