Elegant Crystal Ornaments

SUStars Blog Hop 

Holiday and Winter Home Decor

You can find the entire list of Blogs listed on the SU Stars home page here.

Your next stop on the SUStars Blog hop is RaissaStamps located here.

It is the season of Craft Fairs for me.  Today, I have my Elegant Crystal Ornaments....they are made to hang on the Christmas tree or wall!  These are a great upcycle project because you can re-use crystals from vintage lamps and can also re-use vintage silver coasters that are out-of date. 

You can find silver coasters and crystals at flea markets, thrift stores and yard sales.  The hunt is part of the fun!

To get shimmer and shine, I used Vanilla Shimmer Smooch Spritz on my paper, Glass Glitter, and Rhinestone Brads on some of my ornaments.

Stamp Sets:  Greeting Card Kids and various retired sets including A Cardinal Christmas
Papers and Inks:  Whisper White, variety of Inks, Vanilla Shimmer Smooch Spritz
Tools and Accessories:  Crop-A-Dile, Ribbons, Basic Pearls, Glass Glitter, recycled vintage silver coasters and recycled crystal chandelier parts (non-SU) Rhinestone Brads

  1. These are fantastic. I couldn't pick which one I like the most because they are all so great. I would love to see them all on a sparkling Christmas tree.

  3. What a great idea! I love bling!

  4. Absolutely beautiful. I wish I had some old crystal and vintage coasters laying around! Of course, I would still have a hard time taking them apart (unless they were broken already). Great gift idea!!
