Are you sick of me yet? ;0) Today, I'm back with some crazy ornaments...one for a special friend and one for me...I have to keep something!!! These ornaments are over the top...almost look a little too wedding day like...but were oh so fun to make and fun to scavenge my stash to find the perfect bits. Sorry for the bad photos, they were so hard to photograph...too many focus points.
|I had some DoCrafts Ornament balls in my stash as well, and I spray painted them an ivory color. I decided to use these items from the new jewelry stash above and give them new life.|
|I connect everything, I thought wire was best, but I wanted it a bit more detailed, so Eileen Hull's new Twist & Style Tool from Sizzix came in handy. I twisted about 6 yards of wire to hold the ornaments together and connect pieces...hard to see in the photos, but it's there.|
|I punched Tim Holtz's Large Seal with his Metallic Gold Kraft Core to use as end caps for the ornaments. I cut a small slit in the seals so I could overlap them and give them a more spherical fit for the ornaments. Then I started adhering a punch of the jewelry on top of the ornaments with hot glue, and added more from my Idea-ology stash. I dangled something off of everything I could. Crazy, but gorgeous.|
I hope your hands get creatively dirty soon!
