Red Christmas balls with beaded ribbons

 My mothers birthday was yesterday.

Originally we (my brother and I) had planned to give her a scarf I knitted,
 (only the moths ruined that), and some other stuff.
That killed that idea, so we had to come up with something else.
Which proved rather troublesome actually.

Anyways, we ended up settling on a carving board.
 I still wanted to give her something homemade.
So I found some small red Christmas balls in my local grocery store.
Which I spruced up by adding beads.
 I decided, or rather ended up, making 8 with beads sewn onto their ribbons.

I mixed some red and pink beads I had, and used some red sewing thread, and a needle for beads.
First I wanted to use a wide ribbon, but after a test, which didn't turn out too good,
 I settled on a slimmer version.
Below you see the result.


I have been tidying up like crazy.
Emtying out and sorting through.
Drinking loads of tea through out, of course.
I do love order:)

  1. These are fabulous! I can't believe you made these from ornaments from the grocery store. They look like something you purchased in a specialty boutique. Very creative!
