Christmas Bling

Morning All,

A bit of Bling to kick start the holidays.



Last night we were celebrating my Dad's birthday, when we got home The Dark Knight was on, well poor Elizabeth doesn't do too well with those types of movies, so we did a little crafting.

Crazy Christmas jewelry and head/hair accessories here, is kind of like your ugly sweater thing. Our Christmas coincides with Summer, the end of the school year and it's a crazy time that is affectionately known as The Silly Season, so we are making some silly jewelry to wear to all the outdoor events coming up.



 Supplies

Christmas Baubles
Earring Findings
Jump Ring
Long straight Pins

My baubles were from a garland so they already had a hole in each end.



 Thread the bauble onto the pin.

 Loop the end and trim



Open the ring and thread the bauble and the earring finding on, excuse the black paint on my fingers, I am actually in the middle of doing something for the boys room.



And there we go


I showed Julian this picture and he said they looked like blue boobs - Men!

DIY Delight or Disaster? 9/10 glitter is a winner for me so Delight. This week I'll be sharing a pile more Christmas Crafts - I love Christmas!

Are you making any crazy Christmas accessories? I'd love to see them.

Thanks for reading,


Mel xo

  5. Ha...I have to admit that it looks like they're hanging on a dressform so I thought boobs. :). But I love glitter and I have a pack of plastic ornaments I can't decide what to do with, so I'm going to glitterify them to make earrings. Thanks for the fun idea!!

  8. Is Julian watching a racy Smurf movie I don't know about? That's the only case of "blue boobs" I can think of there being. And they sparkle when she's *excited*?

    Wow. Too early for this! lol
