My name is Andrea and I am from a little blog named The Cottage Market
I have been graciously invited by the wonderful Desiree today to share a new tutorial I created with all of you and I could not be more
thrilled. I am a mom, wife, furbaby mom, friend, a woman of faith, an art major which continues to inspire me throughout the years and a very thankful person.
I run two shops on Etsy and also head up the Cottage Style Street Team on Etsy.
I am new to blogging but I have to say I am really enjoying it and hope to share many projects and fabulous finds with my new friends for a very long time.
Many thanks to Desiree for her love and support to inspire growth for her fellow friends…a genuine kind and creative heart!
Hope you enjoy the tutorial and remember to always add your touch to everything you create and have fun!
Well I have a simple little project for you today…
The possibilities are endless and I hope you have fun making yourself all kinds of necklaces…
I used a very neutral palette but WOW you could jazz your creations up in oh so many ways…
I know there are so many necklaces out there but this is my little slant on it and I hope you give it a try…
They make great gifts for the upcoming Holiday’s or for any occasion or just because.
of beads…flowers…ribbon or twine… glue…
your local hardware store or Lowes…Home Depot…they work fabulously and they are so inexpensive…
Madeleine tins…they are not just for baking…they make such great sorters and look so pretty.
I found that this is the best way to paint many beads at one time.
beads so you get the bottoms and tops…it really works fabulously…then I take
out the hair dryer and give them a dry and then move on to the next set…
One note…have all of your beads painted and ready to go before you start…
period of time : )
your ribbon the length that you would like and start to string your design…
whatever embellishment you choose to the disc…tie a bow in the back and viola
you are done. take a peek at a few variations…
anything or you can leave it plain!
saves you from all the other finding purchases…
Are they fabulous or are they FABULOUS?
I love these necklaces so much!
