so i tried the beaded snowflake tutorial. i couldn't come up with anything i liked using the beads i already had. and i wasn't about to go buy some others. this is going to be a low cost holiday! i have a TON of these glass marbles hanging around, so i started playing around and came up with this!

How did you make that? Those arent beads? They are marbles? The round kind or the flat kind? Tut please.

whoa. fastest replies ever!!!

ok. so they are the glass marbles that are flat on the back but rounded on top. all i did was come up with a design i liked and glued pieces of wire to the back of the marbles. i used 3 pieces of wire. one down each point  of the flakes. does that make sense? then i glued the same kinds of marbles to the back so the wire was sandwiched between the glass.

and yes, they are kinda heavy. not tooo bad though. my mom said they would have to be one of those ornaments that would rest on a branch. you know what i mean?

they are beautiful and I bet putting them near lights on the tree would be incredibly sparkly.
great job! I have a ton of green ones that need using up. Thanks for the inspiration. What glue did you use?  E6000?

Very pretty!  I have tons of those marbles too.  You can always use more Christmas decorations, right? Wink
