I can be creative too… !

I have never been one with any creative genius… My drawing is down right pathetic, rarely can I be patient and colour things properly, infact always got my drawing book completed by girls in my school who were several years senior… they liked my chubby cheeks and I liked them… πŸ˜› πŸ˜›


Anyways… thanks to my son I decided to have some patience and when we saw this ICE candle being made on MAD … we decided to give it a try… and it looked quite decent according to me… and I felt proud… !!! πŸ˜› πŸ˜› πŸ˜›

Tell me it looks neat… its made in the shape of one 2 litre bottle of pepsi… the space in between was left with a 500 ml pepsi bottle.. filled with sand while freezingΒ in the gap which was filled with water weΒ put a few flowers, peas, grass strands… and lo… !

Tell me it loooks neat… PUHLEEZZ… !

Okay okay… now that you are really impressed… sigh.. it wasnt me… its my brother who had the patience of making this… 😦 so you can stop gushing that you know a talented blogger…. sigh… :mrgreen:

Also if your kid aint watching MAD on Pogo… I think he is missing out onΒ a really good Television programme… !!!!!!!!! πŸ™‚

Edited to add : How to make this :

Take a 2 Litre bottle of pepsi then chop it off with a knife… and then do the same to another 500 ml pepsi bottle… then fill the 500 ml bottle of pepsi with sand and place the 500 ml bottle in the centre of the 2 litre bottle… then fill up the gap between the two bottles with water… in the water you can put your decorative items… from flowers to peas or earings or anything you like… basically… even fruit pieces would look good… then freeze the bottle… once frozen… remove the 500 ml bottle filled with sand from between carefully without cracking the ice… and in the middle you willl have a gap.. in which you can put your candle in the cap of the pepsi bottle… !!!! I hope this is now clear !!!!! πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

  3. Rakesh says:

    wow, this was very nice. All credit to your brother but it is really strange to see two such extremes in the same family πŸ˜›

    Btw, doesn’t the ice melt because of the heat?

  4. Smitha says:

  8. Solilo says:

    Oh my! it is GORGEOUS.

    I thought you bought some candle stand and decorated. Had no clue that it’s made with a Pepsi bottle.

    You $$%^^ was going to praise you and then read that your brother helped little H.

    And Hriday is a cutie-patootie pie (touchwood).

  9. Homecooked says:

    Wow that looks really good! Its ok Hitchy if you didnt make it, atleast you described the process interestingly πŸ™‚ Hriday looks really cute. I am sure he was proud to be a part of the creative process.

  10. Bob Hoff says:

    Very unusual and attractive.

    Our grandson Jimi would like to make that. I’ll click on MAD

    I just finished writing a post about getting creative ideas and such. Can I post the link here?

    Thanks, Hitchwriter

    It is beautiful, and for a few minutes I was like, thank God this guy does know something other than cricket, but then, I should have known it was too good to be true πŸ˜‰
    Yes, MAD is too good, somtimes irritatingly so – Rob makes it look oh so simple, but when we ordinary mortals try it out, it is another story (sigh!)

  12. Sandhya says:

    ‘they liked my chubby cheeks and I liked them… ‘!

    I really thought that you created this beautiful piece! Try one sometime, your son will be prrrroud of you, I am sure!

    He looks nice in the photo…typical 5 year old!

  13. Sakshi says:

    Ayyo hriday is so cute that it took me some time to notice that Pepsi Candle holder. I used to love watching MAD with my son. It’s a cool joyful show.

    Hey how come the talent genes skipped you and went all over to ur bro? πŸ™„ It’s gorgeous and what happens when the whole ice melts away?? πŸ˜₯

  14. Meira says:
