DIY Sun Catcher Bead Craft

These are probably my favorite craft I have made yet. I love them!

I made them in small ramekins.  Once they were done, I drilled a hole and strung them with fish line. If you have one of those window suction cups you can put those on; I wish I had those! You can also make other things like bowls or plates – I plan to do this soon! I cooked them at 410 degrees and put them in the freezer directly after. However, the ones I made in thin metal tins got cloudy in the freezer possibly because they cooled too quickly. It was so fun to play around with 🙂 Some I didn’t cook as long and they looked pretty cool too. Here are the pictures I took of them on my phone.

Here is the link from Pinterest that I initially got the idea from.

 

Christmas Gift Crafts: Completed Product!

I posted before Christmas about all my plans for making Christmas gifts. Now I will show you the finished product! I am very proud of myself and all my crafting! 🙂

First off, here are the ornaments I made out of bottle caps:

Here are some bottlecap ornaments that I glittered and glued onto cardboard balls. Some people, like my fiance, might say they are ‘redneck’ but I like them!

Below are the dry erase calendars that I made out of picture frames and paint samples.

Next I made headbands. This was kind of fun because I have a sister and cousins who are still in high school so I made some with their school colors for football games or whatever.

Last but not least, here are the earring, bracelet, necklace holders that I made out of wooden pictures frames, my drill, metal screen, paint, my new staple gun, and metal screw in hooks. I only took pictures of one, sadly.

I also made sun catchers that turned out awesomely. However, most of those pictures are on my phone so I will be adding them in another post.
