Boho Artsy Ornaments

Boho Artsy Ornaments

This past December I wanted to make some ornaments for my tree.  While I love the look of typical Christmas ornaments and colors I found myself pulling out all sorts of colors to make my ornaments. I had just finished making some bracelets with wire and beads, you can see those in the previous blog post, so I kept with that line of thinking to make my ornaments.  I made circles with wire leaving a tiny hooked area at the top of hanging, wrapped the wires with fabrics and fibers then wrapped the wire with more wire strung with beads. To finish off the ornaments I tied strips of ribbon all around the ornament and added ribbon at the top in the hook for hanging.  I really love how these turned out.  So much so that they never made it on to my tree.  I hung them in a cluster in my art studio so I can see them every time I am creating.  Maybe next Christmas I’ll be ready to use them on my tree. Until then, I get to enjoy them all year-long.

Thank you for stopping by.  It’s always nice to see you. I hope you enjoy the photos below.

Beaded Heart – Happy Valentines Day

Beaded Heart – Happy Valentines Day

Happy Valentines Day! It seemed like the perfect day to share this heart I made. I took some wire and formed a heart shape then wrapped it with fabric, and fibers.  I also strung some tiny beads on some thin wire and wrapped that around the heart too. I added a large red wood bead at the inner tip of the heart and added a strip of fabric at the top to hang the heart by.  Super easy and fun. I hope you all have a wonderful day today.

Thank you for stopping by,

Fabric Bead Charms

Fabric Bead Charms

Last week I made my first fabric beads.  You can see those in the previous blog post.  Of course I had to use them in some projects. I made some charms and a key chain.  I just love them.  They can hang anywhere. I plan to hang one on my purse.  I also used one of my beads on a long hat pin.  I forgot to take a photo of it but you can see it in the video and the link for the video is below.  I really enjoyed making these and I just love the way the beads I made and the other beads I used look together. I especially love the fibers on the beads I made.  I have a few other projects I am working on where I used my beads and at some point I will show them in a video and/or on my blog post. Until next time have fun creating!

Making Fabric Beads

Fabric Beads

A month or two ago a YouTube subscriber asked me if I had a video on making fabric beads.  I did not have a video about it because I had never made any paper or fabric beads before.  She asked if I would mind showing my take on making fabric beads and I said I would. When I had some time, I sat down and started making some fabric beads using scraps from my scrap bin. I found it relaxing and fun to do. Once I had a few beads made I then made some charms with them.  They are so cute.  So, there is now a video on how I make my fabric beads and next week I will share how I made my charms.  A link to the beads video is below.  Use up some of your scraps and make some pretty beads. It’s fun. 🙂
