Weekend Art & Craft


Well I didn't get a lot of painting done this weekend because we had my Mother-in-Law staying with us, so we were busy chatting, shopping, going to swimming lessons, etc. While she was shopping the other day she spotted these cute ribbon necklaces for little girls and she thought it was something we could probably make. So on Saturday night we put our heads together (and my pile of never-ending craft supplies!) and came up with some cute necklaces to give as gifts to some little girls we know.

This one is one that I made for my little cousin:

It was made using:
  • Red & White Gingham Ribbon
  • Alphabet beads
  • Foam Flowers
  • Buttons
  • Big Acrylic Bow
All you really need to do is thread the beads on and tie knots where you want to keep them in place, and then the foam flowers were glued on to the ribbon. It's so easy because you don't even need to add a clasp, you just tie the ribbon where you want the necklace to sit. So easy!

As far as painting goes, today I've been working on a new vampire painting. She's coming along nicely...should be finished tonight! :)
