Hi Everyone! Here are 3 (Craft a Day While Colt's Away) Christmas Crafts for you to hopefully Enjoy! 14 down, 351 to go.....  Make sure to go to the bottom of this post...I think you'll like #3...

#12---I took 2 Black Garage Sale Pillowcases, attached Harlequin Ribbon with a decorative stitch .
#13---I painted 3 Paper Mache Boxes in Turquoise, Lime Green ,Red, antiqued them and...GLITTER!  Let's say it together O.K. "Glitter Makes Everything Better!"
Here is my Dr. Seuss Christmas Village.
#14---I LOVE how my next project turned out. I used three old Bottles, the large one was a Log Cabin Syrup bottle from 1976, celebrating the centennial. Here are two before. Blah...
Okay guys, here they are now!
(You can click on my pictures for a larger view.)

I took old seed bead stretch bracelets apart and added them to misc. beads I had.  Printed off the #1,2 & 3 and aged them.  The Large metal thing is an old drawer pull plate.  The other silver embellishments are guess.....Old EARRINGS.  From the 80's Dynasty Era!  Some of you will remember this! Added Ribbon and for Toppers, My Old Porcelain Cabinet Drawer Knobs that I saved from our Kitchen Redo. 
You may have seen it here first....Seed Bead Bottles!  I have a High Window in my Bath that I am going to set them on the ledge to catch the morning sun...
Many Blessings...

  1. All of your projects are wonderful, but I particularly love #3. I have always had a fondness for the 80's earrings. I believe I recognize Joan Collins' earring on one of your bottles (haha). Anyway, I don't often work with beads, but have always been drawn to the look of them. I would love to make a few of these. May I ask what type of glue you used? Only necessary to answer, if you have time. I would imagine that a hot glue would do the job very well!

  2. I bet these look wonderful in a window! I'm always looking for ideas for jars. I collect them and have no idea why. :)

    I would be honored if you would stop by my Commercial Break Linky List and link this in!

  9. Your so right!! I really like these projects! The house oh my goodness.. the houses!! I agree that glitter does make it all that much better. Those bottles are pretty to, what patience to add all those seed beads. May I ask how you aged the paper for the numbers on the bottles?

  10. I gasped when I saw these bottles! Every detail just brings them to another level. I can't imagine what it took to get those seed beeds on there. What adhesive did you use? I'll be featuring these in their own post on Wednesday, Dec 1. Thanks for linking up to Sunday Art Therapy at Seeds on a Breeze.
