Yes - I am making Christmas Decorations in July!
Reindeer and snowflake/star
I have watched some of the jewellery shows recently on C&C and have been inspired to try out some of the ideas (albeit I haven't bought the kits). However, I have in my Craft Crocs stash some beads I bought with the idea that I would make some bits with the grandchildren. (I made the two youngest stretch bracelets with these pre-painted beads on Saturday - they had fun choosing the colour combinations they wanted - but I forgot to take a photo).
Anyway I saw the demo of the reindeer today - and just had to have a play. So with pipecleaner, beads, some googly eyes and a heart jewel, my version of the reindeer was born. The snowflake is even easier - just silver pipecleaner and beads!
The plain beads I used for the reindeer head can actually be painted, so watch out for some variations - I am thinking along the lines of using my pearlised acrylic paints for the snowflake! Might have to make it a tad bigger as the beads are bigger.
close up of the reindeer - will have to get some nice oblong beads for his head.
