Bobby Pin Butterflies. Around this time of the year I start to crave color like I crave chocolate, potato chips, or coffee!

Bobby Pin Butterflies

It’s supposed to be spring, but outside, it is relentlessly cold, cloudy and gray. So as an offering to the vernal gods, I created these Bobby Pin Butterflies, wearable bursts of color meant to usher in sunnier times! No creature better manifests pure beauty and color than a butterfly. In fact, a group of butterflies is called a “kaleidoscope”!

Design a snowflake. D-I-Y: Loopy Christmas Balls. Ribbon Candy Ornaments. I remember trying to eat ribbon candy at Christmastime when I was a kid.

Ribbon Candy Ornaments

It was always a little too big for my mouth and didn’t really taste that great. But I ate it anyway, because it was one of those things that was only available this time of the year, which made it special. As the years passed, I got over the need to actually eat the stuff, but I still think it’s pretty. When my kids were small, we found kits to make ribbon candy ornaments from actual ribbon, thread and beads. This is my take on those, using wire instead of thread. To make these you’ll need: Ten inches of 20 gauge craft wire, ten 8-millimeter beads (give or take a few millimeters), and two pieces of 1 1/2” wide and 17 1/2” long grosgrain ribbon.

Melt the ends of the ribbon carefully with a lighter so they won’t fray. Using needle-nose pliers, make a hook using 1” from one end of the wire. If you have trouble pushing the wire through, you can use a large needle to make a pilot hole. Thread on another bead. Make Modern Paper Ornaments. Christmas Having completed yards of modern paper holiday garland, I wanted to create some more paper decorations to maintain the look and colors throughout my home.

Make Modern Paper Ornaments

I tried making paper snowflakes from the colored cardstock, but they didn't really work. Then I recalled an old trick I learned in Sunday school as a kid which we called "onion bulbs" and put them all over the Chrismon trees. They used paper strips to create the shape of teardrops and hearts, and we made them from white paper and glued so many globs of gold glitter that it would stick the coats and fancy outfits of the old church ladies that would brush up against them.
