I know I shouldn’t be talking about Christmas this early, after all fall just arrived. But a few weeks ago I thrifted a bunch of vintage chandelier crystals. A big whopping mother load actually.
Now that I have more than enough to bling up many, many wind chimes I decided to make some crystal ornaments.
Waaaaay back in the late 70s when decoupage was a big thing (at least in my world) we decoupaged funky flowers onto chandelier crystals for the Christmas tree.
Even though I still love funky flowers I’m definitely not the peasant blouse and bell bottoms chick that I once was sooo I decoupaged these babies with lovely french inages. Of course the Eiffel Tower one is my favourite.
Silver pinch pendant bails are attached, and I’m using black hemp twine for hanging. A set of these (or two or three) will definitely be on my tree this year.Update: To make these yourself you can pop over to my tutorial here at How To Decoupage Chandelier Crystals.
And then I thought how fun it would be to add chandelier graphics to the chandelier crystals. Clearly I don’t get out enough. lol.Maybe I need to do some swinging on some big old chandeliers. lol. Now that would be fun.
A set of these will be on my tree. Can you guess what colour mine will be?
Bet you can’t… I’m such an enigma. lol.
