I recently made these for my grandmothers. They're made from felt, buttons and ribbon, so they're super simple and don't take many supplies, but they do take some time.

Crafting keeps the madness at bay. Or is it the cause?

I was thinking about making the cold cream porcelain and using my snowflake cutters to do snowflakes, and painting them with this iridescent shimmer translucent paint I found.  It is by Golden acrylics, and from their series 7 (I think that is how they label them) - the interference line?  From one angle, they are a shimmery pearl tone, but as the angle changes, depending on the colour you choose, it can shimmer to a coppery tone, a reddish, a blue, or a green.  Very pretty.  I bought it to paint the back of some pendents, but I think it could work well with the cold porcelaine.  I'm going to give it a try this weel.  Then if they work well, maybe I will finally get to making that wreath I have been wanting to do.  It was going to be with salt dough, but I worried about the weight.  Maybe doing it with this dough would be better.

I made a bunch of clothespin dolls for an ornament swap.
The final ones have gold paint details on them.
