Bottle Cap Reindeer Necklace


I was searching on Etsy the other day for sports logo images for bottle caps (another project in the works) and in all the mix was a snowman image. 

How does that happen? Sports. Snowman?

Anyway, it gave me an idea and I went to the craft room to look for a snowman sticker in my stash.



I didn't find a snowman, but found a reindeer instead.




I took the cute little guy and cut him up.




Before I did anything else, I took the 3 bottle caps and punched holes in them, making sure that the holes were in the sides and not in the bottom of the caps. I put the sticker pieces in with Mod-Podge and then added Dimensional Magic, which is why you can't have your holes too close to the bottom or it would run out.




I connected the caps with jump rings and glued on a bail and the reindeer is back together.




I still don't know what sports and a snowman have in common, but now we've got a reindeer.

Ornament Earrings


How about 2 pairs of earrings in just a matter of minutes?



However long it takes you to add a jump ring is the only amount of time you'll spend making these.



The best part? You can pick both of these things up at Hobby Lobby for half off.
Two pairs of earrings for $3.50!



The ornaments come with the ring already in the cork so all you have to do is add a jump ring and attach to the earring part.

Feel like red? Wear the red ornaments.
Feel like green? Wear the green.

Or...



one of each.



Not bad for $3.50, huh?

Snowman Washer Earrings


Do you remember this little guy that I made a couple of years ago?





A couple of weeks ago, Lisa, who is co-president of the South Jersey Bead Society contacted me and ask if she could use this as inspiration to make earrings.

First I thanked her for asking and then absolutely gave her my permission. Not that she would need my permission, but it meant the world to me that she was kind enough to even ask. I did tell her that I would love to see a photo after they had finished.



Aren't they adorable?!

She used smaller washers and lots of beads to "bling" them up. I love them!

They taught 4 patterns for earrings (the snowman being one of them) that day for an earring swap that they have at their holiday party. How fun!

Tomorrow I'll be showing you the earrings I made over the weekend that only took a few minutes to make.

Have a warm Monday!
We're supposed to have record cold temps today. I'll be here hibernating.
