O’ Christmas Tree! Part IV – DIY Bling Ornaments

Since I am not using any glass balls on the tree, I wanted to make sure that the tree still has some sparkle. I accomplished this by making some tree jewelry.

I found these Gem Stones and Gem Drops at Z Gallerie a few years. They are acrylic instead of crystal but they are faceted and they do sparkle a bit. They could have easily been used as a vase filler but they came with holes in them also to allow them to be strung up for garland or such. So I used my jewelry making supplies and extra beads to create a number of these drop ornaments.

I think they add just the bit of sparkle I was looking for.

How beautiful! That's a great idea for all those spare beads I have gathering dust, and the kids might actually like to help! Thanks!

I LOVE all the shades of brown on your tree. It's gorgeous!

I have a tree topper that I'm working on now (and hope to post about next week) that you are going to love. It would be perfect for your tree.
