Introduction: Swinging Granny
I found some miniature people at a fleamarket and the image of them sitting in swings popped up immediately.
So I built some swings.
Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: What You Need
- a miniature figurine, I highly recommend good quality with detailed features. They are well worth their price.
- earring hook
- eye pin findings
- wooden coffee stirrer
- E 6000 (not in the picture)
- x-acto knife
- nail file
Step 2: Prepare the Swingseat
Mark the hole positions and drill the holes. I so love my mini bench vise, it was not at all expensive and I have used it for various projects. Then cut of the seat bit and file it a little at the corners.
Step 3: Prepare the Earring
Open the jump ring and connect the eyepin findings and the earhook.
Thread through the mini bench.
Bend the eyepin finding under the bench. Secure with a generous amount of glue.
Step 4: Seat Granny
Seat your miniperson in a drop of glue and again: Let dry!
And then enjoy the compliments you'll get!
