Crafting goes alien

A while ago I decided to embrace my creative side and decided to make something out of butchers string. Well, I have to warn you, not even I know what it's supposed to be. I started out with an idea of wanting to make a tree, but it ended up being something completely different. 


This is just a piece of cardboard, butchers string and glue. I tried to make a tree shape. At this point I think it kind of resembles a tree, or if you're my brother you'd think it looks like a lollipop. And then I decided to take things a bit further and then this happened. 


In my defence I was trying to create branches, but it ended up looking like wings. And to make sure others could see it's meant to be a tree I added roots, but it ended up looking like legs instead. Okay, now even I have to admit it looks more like some evil plant than a tree. But my brother? He got so excited because he thought I was creating my own alien species. 

At least I enjoyed the whole process, even if I don't know what it is.

  2. I think it looks like a very cool angelic, tentacled alien! From the first pic, I thought it was a key hole. That works in a way because by creating something that's open to interpretation, you're unlocking everyone's imagination!
