Hello, thanks for stopping by today. I have a cute little project to share that I made for our challenge over at Frilly and Funkie. Cec is our hostess and we are kicking off week #2, the Funkie week to post for our challenge theme of A Gift From the Heart. This week I decided to use the winter charms set that I sell in The Funkie Junkie Boutique and make wine charms out of them. These were a lot of fun to make up plus they were super quick to put together. I had a bunch of silver tone spacers and some tiny faceted crystal beads in my stash that I was able to put to use.
I ordered a set of 200 silver tone hoops from eBay and had enough silver bells and charms to make up 10 sets of hoops, charms and silver bells. They are $2.99 for a set of six. All you need to do is add beads and spacers to your liking. I used 4-6mm faceted crystal rondelle spacer beads which you can get at most of the big box craft stores, if you don't already have them in your stash. These make lovely quick and easy handmade hostess gifts for the holidays!
Thanks so much for stopping by today. I hope you will stop by Frilly and Funkie to see what the other designers have made as their handmade gift from the heart.
