Easy DIY Christmas Jewelry

I have posted before about how much I enjoy taking regular little items and turning them into jewelry or other wearable items.
These are just simple Recollections (purchased at Michaels) embellishments which I have attached bails, and ear wire pads.  Did they turn out super cute?  And they are so very easy to do! Plus with the assortment available the options are endless! I really wish the pictures could show how adorable these are! They make great homemade Christmas gifts for friends, coworkers,  family, or perfect for those “swaps” or “Secret Santa”.
Materials:
  • Three embellishments of choice (i liked the stockings)
  • 1 Aanraku Bail (i purchased mine here)
  • 2 Silver Plated Earring Hook Pads (i also purchase mine here)
  • E6000 Glue
  • Mod Podge Outdoor (or other sealant)
  • Necklace Chain

Take the three embellishments and adhere the bail to one and the earring pads to the other two using the E6000 glue. Let dry overnight.  I like to then add a thin coat of mod podge to the front since these are glittery. The Mod Podge will act as the sealant to keep the glitter from covering your shirt and will also protect it if you get stuck out in the rain or the snow.  I would not consider these to be water proof by any means, but the Outdoor formula of Mod Podge sure helps just in case.

That was it! Easy peasy! Add your choice of necklace chain to your pendant and your good to go!

They are so super cute! Takes no time.  You could easily put several together at once and let them dry overnight. They would be great in a little bit of cute packaging and instant gift!! For hostesses or those friends that just drop by out of the blue.  Of course you have to make a few for yourself as well!

Sparkle and Shine Christmas Card

christmascard1
So the other day I went ahead and decided to create my first Christmas card for the season.  I like to wait until after Thanksgiving before I start planning Christmas items, but this year – I need to get on the ball and plan like crazy! PLUS – I am super excited about the beautiful products Close to My Heart has for Christmas.  It makes getting into the Christmas card making spirit so much easier!! Coordinating papers and embellishments – makes it all so easy!
The pictures for the card turned out horrible; I’m truly sorry but I was so tired that I didn’t want to pull out my light box and lighting set to take beautiful photos.  Apologies!
This card was super easy to make using Sparkle and Shine Workshop on the Go pack and a few other items.   It was originally made for Scrapbooking but now we have some great recipes for cards too!
Here are a few more (terrible) photos.  All in all, I would say this card took me about 10 minutes to make. That’s how easy it was! I’ll list the specific items I used below but many of them you can get through the Workshop on the Go Kit.
