Secret Battery holder

Sometimes the best way to hide something in your design is right in the open... so I simply hang the battery behind the biggest flower. Make sure you position the battery pack in such a way that it can be replaced when needed.

Cut the fishing line

Cut the fishing line. You will need two pieces, slightly longer than you think you might need. Find the mid point.

Knot the line on both sides from the mid point

Split the line and slip the battery pack into the gap

Split the line and slip the battery pack into the gap. Knot the line again, this time the split partners.

If this is a bit confusing have a look at my detailed instructions for Macrame inspired hanging vases. See the Tutorial below.

Split the line again and knot

Split the line again and knot. The battery pack is now snug in the line holder and can be hanged behind the design.

Carefully adjust the line

Carefully adjust the line.

This is my ongoing creative workbook to research and capture design projects and techniques. You will mostly find ideas for floral art but I will also include some other projects such as gift packaging, cards and even cake decorating with a few lifestyle projects arranged in between.

Everything you see in this workbook was designed, made and photographed by me, unless specific credit is given to another designer.
