Hi dearest Eclectic Trends readers, it’s Mette from monsterscircus – it’s such a joy to be back, and I hope you’re doing fine and ready to kick-start the weekend with a new project.
Today I’m going to share how you can cut copper tubes the easiest way and how to make this multi copper display – use it as a candle holder or grab some flowers. So I hope you’ve got time to set aside a little moment to try out this project. Let’s get started.
Copper tube, I’ve used 1 meter
Pipe cutter, you can find this on amazon or at your local hardware store
Test tubes or candles
First, you need to adjust the gap of the pipe cutter to fit the size of the copper tube, use the knob to adjust.
Place the tube cutter on the pipe and tighten the control knob.
Hold on to the pipe firmly, now rotate the cutter round the pipe. The cutting wheel revolves a clean cut on the copper tube.
Repeat 2-4. Each rotation will cut deeper into the tube.
Voilà, now you’ve cut the tube into two pieces. Cut different lengths of pipe.
When you’ve planned the look of your design, add dabs of glue on the tube and attach them onto each other.
Set to dry.
Now you’re done with your copper piece and if you want you can place test tubes in the pipes, add water and a flower of your desire.
A short stem will make the illusion of floating flowers.
This is an ideal way to make a unique creation, which will fit any occasion that involves the beauty of flowers.
From above it’s quite spectacular too so it’s a showpiece that’ll rival the beauty of most flowers – and if you’re fond of the minimalistic style, there’s no need for styling the copper pipes just add a candle or too.
With this visual anchor, it’s not too easy to keep focus on the flowers, but hey, why not jazz up your home the budget friendly way with fresh leaves and enjoy another piece made of the on-trending copper.
So, what do you say? Do you like this little copper installation? Oh and don’t forget to share your idea or if you’ve made any tube projects, we just can’t get enough inspiration and ideas. Thank you very much for reading and have an amazing weekend!
