What in the World?

I know.
That is what you are thinking.
 
 
What is that?
 
It is my latest attempt
at making ornaments.
 
Icicle ornaments to
be exact! Last year it was
buttons...this year it
is vintage baubles and beads!
 
(I was Pinterest inspired!
Oh yes, Pinspiration!)
 
I even enlisted Bebe
and the hubs to help me.
 
(Crafting is always more
fun with a crowd.)
 
After the third or fourth,
I think I have the hang of it.
 
The smaller the better.
 
But not too small or
else they look like earrings!
 
Supplies:
 
Heavier gauge wire (24)
Loose beads (I prefer vintage)
Danglers (what's this?)
 
 
Let me explain:
 
Danglers are a charm or
pretty bead to hang
off of the end.
 At least, that is what
we called them!
" I need a dangler
over here!"
 
These were just our
practice pieces.

I need to purchase silver
colored wire as I was
using floral wire that we
already had on hand!
 
 
Anyway, it was lots of
fun and I highly recommend
it as a Christmas
activity this year.
 

I'm not sure mine
are good enough to
 sell on Etsy. I might
try them out at my Mom's
group vendor's sale
coming up in November.
 
Enjoy the weekend!
 
Linking with Pink

That's a neat idea, you can always use a bit of sparkle somewhere.
