Glitter Wine Glasses

Last year (2015) I was trying to come up with different ideas for things to sell at the Christmas Fayres. I decided to try out Glitter Glasses.....I do not like glitter at the best of times. There was a trail of Glitter from my Craft Room to the Toilet and also to my was everywhere......even after a shower I was still finding it on my hands or face. lol. Here are some I made along with the boxes to hold them....I also made some wine glass charms for the glasses.

Red glass with matching box that has a viewing section.

2 Wine Glass charms to match the glass. 

White Wine Glass Charms.

PURPLE - this is mine.

Some of the Wine Glasses colours I made.

Beaded Wire Trees

Over the years I have attempted different things. One of these were wire trees. I started off with scattered branches and eventually settled into a more 'Weeping Willow' kind of tree I seem to be stuck making that design. Here are some I have made.

This is one of the first trees I made. This particular one was for my younger sister who likes purple just as much as me.

This has a sad tale behind it. Our puppy, Leia, died at 17 weeks old just before Christmas and none of us wanted to put decorations up....I did this for that reason.

This tree I added flowers at the end. It didnt really turn out how Id hope but its nice just the same. 

This one is more the willow tree style because on the branches there are names. I gave this one to my mum and it has her 3 children and 4 grandchildrens names on it .
Wedding Wire Tree
The Wedding Tree was a design I came up with as my cousin was getting married and I was lost for ideas for a present. Its made with glass Crystals and Glass Angels. It looked amazing and when the sun hit it the room sparkled with colour. 

This is a tree for a Golden Anniversary....hence the gold beads and gold angels. I made the box for it to go into as well.

A Blue Tree to celebrate the birth of a baby boy. Lots of charms on it that related to babys and some of the branches had 'Baby Boy' written on them.

The Baby Girl Tree......basically the same as the Baby Boy Tree but in pink and saying Baby Girl on the branches.

Some Christmas Trees I made. The idea behind them was for a table centre piece for the Christmas meal.

Ooops.....I did it again.

Im really not that good at blogging. lol. If I hadnt got a message to say someone had commented on a previous blog Id never have popped back on here.
Anyway, I saw that I havent posted anything for over a year so Im going to add a few pictures of things Ive been making over the years that I havent posted on here.

Santa Keys

I made the label with felt. I cut out the hole and put the verse in and then sewed it all up adding the ribbon at one end to tie the key onto.
The verse reads ;-
Santa, this is a magical key
We're leaving it out for you to see
Tonight it will open any door
You won't need chimneys anymore
Snowman Poop and Reindeer Poop.
