Arts & Crafts Week: Sparkly Puff-balls

As Arts & Crafts week continues, I thought you'd love these as much as I do! I have a couple handfuls of these little sparkly puff-balls left and am thinking how fun they would be sewn onto a fabric cuff bracelet of some kind.

These were used for one of my crafts at a craft night extravaganza. I had bought plain knit hats and gloves for everyone and brought lots of embellishments for us to either glue or sew onto them.

I wish I could go back in time and get a photo of the finished products, they were all so great and each so different! I still wear my gloves that I sewed a puff ball in each color to.

The funny thing about my glove project is that I was not paying close enough attention and sewed the embellishments to the same side of each glove. No big deal, I just have to squeeze my thumb into the pinky finger slot on one of them. :)

I'd love to hear more ideas on using these in jewelry projects since I think they are so festive and just in time for the holidays!

These look sooooo fun! I like your idea of a cuff bracelet. It might be fun to do a matching pair of earrings with a little pom looped to the bottom of chain hanging from the earwires - does that make sense? red wine you know:)

Yes, that makes perfect sense! I didn't even think about earrings and those are my favorite kind...a single "bead" hanging from a chain!! Thank you!

My son loves these. The problem is, he just wants to play with them as they are - he hates it when I try to attach them to anything!

Oh good Lord! Tribbles! Yeah I know I let it out, I'm a closet Trekkie. I immediately thought of a Tribble bracelet....creating little cages for them. I could so see "Trouble with Tribbles" bracelets at the Trek conventions.

Ok, I have to admit I too have trekkie tendencies and would LOVE to make a trouble with tribbles bracelet!!! That is an excellent idea!! :)
