Using Vintage Jewelry in YOUR Christmas Vignettes

Happy Tuesday everyone!  I am a little slow on getting my post up today.  I want to show you my idea of Using Vintage Jewelry in YOUR Christmas Vignettes.  I have had a lot of fun with epsom salts and artificial snow.

12 Drummers Drumming

Happy Saturday!  And welcome to my version of the 12 Days of Christmas.  I hope you have been following the incredible bloggers and THEIR ideas for the 12 days of Christmas.

I am constantly blown away by their talent and ideas.

12-Days-of-Christmas-Blog-Tour-button-

Today I am going out on a limb and giving you MY interpretation.  What’s that, you say?  It’s NOT anything to do with 12 drummers drumming?

You see, I don’t have drum sticks around my home.  I don’t own a silhouette cameo, to cut out a drummer boy.  BUT, when you have a skewer or chopstick in your hands, don’t you tap them on your table (kind of like you would a drumstick)?

I KNOW, I do!

So this is what I came up with for 12 Drummers Drumming…

DIY Christmas Tree Ornament

 To make your own Christmas Tree Door Hanger you will need:

bamboo skewers

fabric covered cardstock

sharp scissors

popsicle stick

1 crystal

hot glue

rick rack or jute for hanging

 I started out with a few skewers, and a piece of fabric covered chipboard .

(I had it left over from this project)

With sharp scissors I cut the skewers into graduating larger sizes.

12 Drummers

 

DIY Christmas Ornament3

 Using hot glue I attached my “drum” sticks to create a tree.

I cut a small piece of popsicle stick to make a trunk.

With the hot glue I adhered the “trunk” and crystal.

No, I didn’t use 12 Drummers Drumming.  But I DID use sticks and that counts, right???

I am excited to make more of my Christmas Tree Door Hangers as small gifts for friends.

Don’t you think they would look cute on a present, too??

I have more of my Christmas ideas here, here, and here.

Don’t forget to see ALL 12 days of Christmas and ALL of the unique, creative and Christmas ideas.
