Painted Christmas Hearts ♥

I bought these little wooden white hearts in hobby craft and using sequins and acrylic paints, I decorated them with Christmassy designs. I then used a hot glue gun to attach a ribbon to the back so I could hang them as mini Christmas ornaments. These would also look great as decorations for presents!

How to make a Sharpie Lantern

I can't take credit for this lovely idea as I saw it at a Xmas fair in the children's craft tent. You can buy lots of different 'stain glass' stickers in different craft stores. I decorated my glass jar/mason jar using Christmas stickers. I also wrapped thick wire around the edge of the jar and created a handle before using sharpies to colour the glass in. They look so beautiful in the dark and the colours look beautiful as the light shines through.

Painted Reindeer

I bought this gorgeous little ceramic reindeer from hobby craft which I used acrylic paints to decorate. I love this little project and he looks so cute sat on my shelf helping everyone get into the Christmas spirit. There are so many fab projects available in shops around this time of year. Why not have an explore and make something new?

My fused glass workshop

My Jewellery Workshops

I have made so much jewellery this year and attended lots of different workshops with many of my friends. It is great to share workshops with friends where you can share ideas and learn new skills together! :) 

Another Painting project: House Sign!

My new painting project!
(Please note, this picture was taken many months after my painting project where the weather had not been kind to the wood. Next time more varnish will be needed!)

Crystal pendants course

This year, I attended a wire jewellery course where I was able to wrap so many different beautiful pieces of agate, peridot and  amethyst. I am so pleased with the overall outcomes and they all look so beautiful in the light. I loved this workshop and can’t wait to continue more wirework projects at home. Watch this space!

Watercolour cards

I have recently rediscovered my love for watercolour paints.
By no means am I any good at painting but even so, I love it! The best thing about watercolour is that it doesn't necessarily need to be neat and they are just so easy to mix and blend.
