From salsa to seasonal
Even though I have been to a craft store (or two) since October started, I’ve still been going through my stash to make projects. Once a stash buster, always a stash buster!
I felt like playing around with some beads today, but not necessarily making jewelry. I just love garland made from wire and beads. I am always drawn to it in magazines and stores, so I thought I’d try my hand at making some.
While going through my collection of beads, I came across some that would be perfect for a fall garland. I grabbed some black wire (26 gauge), and went to work.
I took a long length of the wire and loosely folded it in half. I threaded a bead onto the wire and twisted the wire a few times. I kept adding beads and twisting until I reached the end of the wire.
Don’t you love the shape of this glass salsa bottle? I’m a fan. Time to make it pretty! I took some raffia and glue dots and covered the very top of the bottle. Then, I draped my garland around the bottle.
One of the things I love about this is- it isn’t permanent. I can use the garland on my table or over a mirror if I change my mind (which I’m bound to do). Even the raffia can be removed. I also love how random the beads are. Now I just need to figure out where it will go…
Wish I had some chips…
