1831  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Re:Glass Picture Marble Bracelet on: December 03, 2003 10:17:00 AM
Hi guys,
I just whipped this bracelet out last night.
I didn't have time to wait for the bracelet blank to come in the mail (had to mail the bracelet to my grandma for Christmas), so I made it with ribbon instead.  I made a button and loop closure, and just glued the ribbon to the backs of the marbles, and then glued felt on top of that.  I used pictures of my grandma's 6 grandkids, for an extra sentimental present.  I'm also making the marble magnets with pictures of the appropriate kids for my mom and each of my aunts.  Anyway, here's the completed bracelet:

Here's my alien illusion scarf, with the alternating green and black aliens.

I think it turned out pretty cool.

My mom once knitted me a dress from a pattern in a World Wildlife Fund knitting book.  (It was a 'coral reef' dress and had tropical fish all over it)  It was a short dress, but very fitted, so if you could find the book, maybe it wouldn't be too hard to adapt?

and you could line it with something soft and funky, like faux fur.

I also used a sheet for a curtain in my bedroom.  My apt came with one of those cheap curtain holder thingies with all the tiny loops on a track.  So I bought some curtain hooks (kinda scary 2 shaped needle things) and just hooked  them in by the thick  hem (the part that goes at the head of the bed.

Or you could *really* cheat, and just sew them onto the hat after you're finished.

I once did a super cheap disposable topper.  I cut a star out of some gold cardboard, glued it to a wooden skewer, and then attached it to the top of the tree with twist-ties.  Not fancy, but I was in college and it was pretty cool at the time to just have a tree.

I saw somewhere instructions for making 3-d stars out of cds.  You could proably leave off the bottom point, so that it would be open, and just jam that onto the top of your tree.

I have one of those modular cat fishing pole things where you can switch out the lures - it has a ball chain attachment thing.   Anyway, my cats destroyed one of their favorite ones, so I took it apart.  It looked like it was basically held together with hot glue, which I guess is probably pretty nontoxic.

You can make your christmas cookies with a hole in them - then after baking tie a ribbon through the hole  and hang them on the tree - delicious and decorative.   I did this one Christmas in college when I had an on-campus apartment.  and when people come by they can have one as a snack.

My grandparents have these ornaments they made for their first christmas - they are walnuts (whole, in the shell) that are painted and glittered with a loop of ribbon glued on.

You could do a couple of those clove studded oranges - they smell great, and you can hang them in a closet after Christmas, but they're kind of heavy.  To make these, tie a 3/4" ribbon around your orange and make a loop at the top.  Tack it on in a couple of places with pins.  Then start pushing whole cloves through the skin of the orange.  Cover all of the exposed orange skin with cloves.  After Christmas, make sure it hangs in a dry place, that way the orange will slowly dry out instead of rotting!  As it dries it will shrink a little, so you may have to replace the ribbon.

And of course there are always paper chains.
