Here’s to a sparkly New Year… January 3, 2018

Filed under: Archives — Fresh Baked Designs @ 1:46 pm

Can you believe it’s 2018?  Happy New Year, everyone!

Who doesn’t need more sparkle in their life?  I found a box with some left over chandelier parts on my workbench the other day.  Hmm… Thought they’d make some pretty awesome hangers. Start playing around with sparkly crystals and colorful beads.  Et, voila! They look great on a Christmas tree, but would also had some bling-bling to a window or hanging from a rear-view mirror in the car.  I’m definitely going to make more next year for Holiday Markets and personal gift giving.

You can easily purchase a box of 12 crystal chandelier parts from Amazon for less than $10.  They have lots of sizes, styles, and even colors.  I used 18 gauge silver plated wire to add pretty beads and hangers.  Ready to gift in a jiff.  The one on the right has silver solder tinned around the edges for a more antique look.

IMO, these would make great gifts all year round…

Who couldn’t use a little bedazzling in their life?

  1. A Happy New Year to you too, Lynda! I immediately thought “garden decorations”! 🙂

  2. Those are really stunning. I can absolutely see them hanging in a window and casting prisms of light on the floor! Here’s to a new and wonderful year!
