Holiday Sequin Ornament

 Recently I was asked to try a great new product called Smoothfoam
It comes in a variety of shapes and sizes from small balls, eggs, hollow shapes, wreaths and sheets.
It it very smooth making it perfect to paint, sand, and cut.
I chose to make a sequined ornament, similar to ones I had when I was little.



 To get started, you will need 2" balls of Smoothfoam
Gold or silver sequin pins, assorted colors and sizes of sequins, and ribbon.
 First tie a length of ribbon around your Smoothfoam ™ ball. Tie a knot then tie at the top so you can hang your ornament once completed. Layer your sequins onto the pins and easily push into the ball along the ribbon. This will help secure the ribbon while you work. Add more pins and sequins filling in the gaps as you work.
 When you have covered the entire ball, double check and push in any loose pins.
Hang and enjoy!
You can find Smoothfoam ™  and all these supplies at any major craft stores.

Designers Craft Challenge- A Thank You Gift Idea

 Hi everyone, so nice to see you again! This month for The Designer Crafts Challenge group, the theme is thankful gifts. Now that cooler weather is happening upon most of us, I thought it would be nice to make up some "Spiced Lemon Friendship Tea" to share. This is a favorite mix I've had for along time and thought you might like it as well!

Home For The Holidays- Votive Tea Lights & Giveaway!

 Welcome to "Home For The Holidays!" A blog hop sponsored by The Robins Nest and Helmar!
We were asked to create something that makes us feel at home for the holidays. To me, seeing brightly decorated votive candles makes me feel like Christmas is almost here. I love the dancing flame and the way the colors sparkle brightly.
