  • Beaded Beauties

Materials

  • Metallic ribbon
  • Princesca Bird and Pear Tags
  • Peridot Birthstone Drops
  • Artistic Wire (Beadalon)
  • 1. We're utterly enchanted with these playfully chic ornaments. Tie them to gift bags and packages for unexpected sparkle. For holiday parties, consider making one for each place setting for a fabulously festive touch. To personalize, add a tiny tag with the recipient's name.
  • 2. To get this look, punch 1/8" holes in bottom and 1/4" holes in top of Princesca Bird and Pear Tags (7gypsies). Thread Peridot Birthstone Drops (Crafts Etc.) onto jump rings and jump rings through holes in bottom of tags. Insert one end of Artistic Wire (Beadalon) through 1/4" holes at top of tag, twist end around itself to secure, thread 12mm green faceted round beads (Crafts Etc.) onto wire and twist again at top, forming a loop for hanger.
  • 3. Tie silver metallic ribbon bows around hanger as shown. Use Gem-Tac Permanent Adhesive (Beacon Adhesives) to glue 7mm blue crystals (The Beadery) to tags as shown.
