A Little Sparkle

These are the ornaments I have been making for the little Christmas tree for AST. This tree will decorate the food table for our Christmas strip club. Hmm, somehow those three words don't really go together- Christmas. Strip. Club. Nope.

I simply wrapped embroidery floss around a wooden craft spool, glued the ends down and lightly brushed gel medium onto the floss. Then I generously sprinkled microfine crystal glitter all over the floss. A little piece of baker's twine threaded through a button, a snowflake, through the spool and through another button finished them off. (I did glue the buttons down.) Easy-peasy!
How cute would these be on gift packages for all of your quilting friends?
I love them. :)
