Needle In The Hay Stack : Found Object Project

Create your own sculpture with found objects around the house. Needle in a haystack will aspire you to look at common objects in a new light and experiment with design and art. Look around right now, can you make a sculpture of your own with what you have there. We did with a dead bolt, you can to.

My original idea was to cut up some trees that fell down in a recent storm, but our deadbolt to the front door broke. So being the handy man I am, I went ahead and took out the old and put in a new one, then I called a lock smith and had them fix what I had broken. It happens. I told the locksmith I wanted the parts as he was going to take them and hopefully recycle them. He looked at me a little odd, but said have at it, and I did.

So here is your materials list :

Old busted deadbolt, or get a new one they cost about 30 bucks

Super glue

Pliers to bend and hold
