Here's a fun way to embellish your packages or gift bags. Make curly-q's the same way you do with ribbon, by gently sliding the scissors across the wire.
Then, just add a crimp to the end of the wire and add a bead or beads to create the dangles. These are also a fun way to use beads on a small tree or hang from a light fixture or chandelier.
The dangle below uses a star pendant with ribbon tied on for use as a necklace or package embellishment that becomes an ornament.
While there are times I enjoy making little tiny dangles like the red, green, clear dangles on this charm, I do love that Cousin provides packages of ready-made dangles.
I just used a length of chain and jump rings to attach them and added a large charm to the bottom.
Fun and SO EASY!
As always, we'd love to hear your Christmas in July stories, so please take a minute to share! :) Oh, and "happy holidays!"
