Notes

This is an upcycled 14” x 14” common metal gridwall panel, like the kind used to create modular shelving in college dorms. Or, to build a show booth at yarn conferences wink .

This one has been painted in glossy navy blue then sprayed with fine multicolored glitter. Why though?

  • Because these grid panels are really pretty versatile and
  • I have stacks of them
  • Some are even starting to rust a little and I don’t want to just throw them away
  • I’m inspired by current trends using them for wall organizers--like cork boards for photos etc but with little clips
  • And especially the trend for displaying heart air plants heart !!

So this is a cosmic condominium for astral air plants.

The crocheted stars are different mainly because they’re swatches. All but one are made in a strip fashion rather than starting in a ring.
I love that they look sort of as if Edward Gorey sketched them.

Working on a blog post now where I’ll write how I crocheted some of the stars.
