Easy, DIY Circle Necklace

This is a simple "make and take" project I designed for my sewing arts and crafts class tomorrow.  To make this necklace you'll need:

*1 circle bead - *leather tie - *2 beads

cut your leather tie 46"

fold your leather tie in half, thread the loop end thru the bead

make a knot on each ties, 1" from the circle bead

tie the end of the leather ties together, add a spot of glue!

Your circle bead can be any size or weight.  Cut the leather ties the length you desire.

                   I hope you enjoy making this simple and easy necklace!

Have a great weekend; and remember to be kind.

For my Halloween party tomorrow evening, I made a last minute table center piece.  I used 3 different sizes mason jars.  On one I tied black lace around and made a bow, on the other two I made different size bands and pinned them with a concealed straight pin, placed a tea light inside and...  tada!!!

These burlap silverware caddy's can be made for almost any occasion - simply by changing the color of the wired burlap ribbon and/or the sheer or satin ribbon ties - bridal showers, birthdays, retirement parties, etc.

Mix Media Art

Most of my mix media art pieces include recycled paper, stitching, fabric and water color.  These pieces were inspired by a brooch of a colorful house a friend was wearing.  Each piece finishes at 5" X 7".   Below are "a few photos":

I call these pieces "around the way".  The metal objects in the pieces are sewing notions.  I hope they inspire you to create art for your space using recycled, materials.
