There are so many beautiful designer geometric goodies out there, but collecting such treasures becomes quite expensive, no?
So why not make your own unique baubles and trinkets?
scrap leather (I found a bag of assorted colors at Michael's), scissors, hot glue gun & glue sticks, Elmer's glue, glitter, suede cord.
First, cut your leather to the desired size and shape. I chose triangles!
Next, put a small dollop of glue with your hot glue gun onto the back bottom angle of one of the triangles. Quickly adhere your second piece of leather to the first, overlapping the two as you see in the photo above. Repeat with the second and third pieces of leather.
Use your hot glue gun to adhere the ends of your suede cord (or leather or ribbon or whatever you choose) to your overlapping triangles.
If you want to add some pizzazz to your necklace, spread Elmer's glue onto the leather and sprinkle glitter over it. Place paper or a container below your necklace during this step to catch excess glitter.
two nails, a hammer, string/twine/ribbon, clothespins, photos
First, measure and mark the ends of your photo display. Drive a nail into each marked end. Tie a cotton string (or ribbon or twine or whatever you like) to one nail. Pull the string tight and tie it to the other nail. You want the string to be taut because your clothespins and photos will weigh it down a bit.
Next...add your photos using clothespins!
See how supah simple that was???
My husband and I set up this display above our bed, and every morning we wake up to wonderful memories of a magical day.
