Forgot to post this before Christmas… Just another ornament thingy I made for my handmade stall in December. I had made a few of the baubles and wanted some less glittery versions, that could maybe serve as all-year-round decorations. So, I found these lovely little ceramic antlers in Target and thought they would be perfect for embellishing.
I used, as always, recycled beads from old jewellery, including some rather tarnished and battered metallic ones that I really liked the look of. There are also polished stone, clay, and wooden ones in the mix. Strung onto some beading wire, attached to the antler and voila! I was pretty happy with it and kept one for myself (which is now hanging on my wall next to my faux stag head). The ornament itself only cost $2.40 and I used beads I already had in my ridiculously large stash, so it was a pretty cheap creation all round.
Hope your day is a happy one – thank you for stopping in.
