    Wink My First Mount

    Hi guys! I built my first mount! I had a wobbly orchid basket and instead of trashing it, I took a hammer to it and created this: (yes, those are little heart beads separating the wood)
    This is my first mount ever, so please let me know if everything looks OK. I used panty hose to secure the phal.

    Very nice work. Love the tiny splash of color the beads give to the mount too. Very crafty & creative!!
