How to make DIY vases for your backyard
Make this gorgeous copper vase... with added magnets!
My partner Alex (huge sugru fan), I & our Jack Russell Billie just finished the 200+ mile Coast (Robin Hood's Bay, Yorkshire - East) To Coast (St. Bees, Cumbria - West) walk & with 28 miles (days of walking) to go, my trust 20+ year old Merrell leather hiking boots (specifically the right one) lost the plot. I guess 200 miles of wet & rocky & steep terrain was finally the proverbial last straw...
But my partner Alex, as part of her camping & hiking kit, always carries some sugru. So we only had about 12 or 13 hours to apply it (blue) to my flapping sole but it lasted for 8 hours the next day & most of the first 14 miles. We had a full rest day planned so I was able to apply a second dose (yellow) and let it cure for the full 24 hours & voilá! It lasted for the full 8 hour finish to the walk...good stuff. The boot lace in the 2nd photo was my Plan B but was not needed.
