Hand made bling

After scouting around my craft room, looking for bits and bobs
to make things for the tree this year, I found a crotchet little thing with a round
hoop, sewed on some shiny flowers, and huzzah, hand made oddity.
The blue one is made from a napkin ring, covered in vintage raw silk and then bejewelled.
Still working on this wreath .. needs more, can't be all minimal at Christmas time.
I've used a plastic plate for this, cut the centre out, wrapped it in thick silky trim,
wrapped some shiny, almost bridal type bling around it (I have no idea how this trim
came to be in possession, most likely a job-lot at the Oppy). Think I'll hang some baubles from the bottom of this, and then hang it on the front door.
I've said it before, and I'll say it again,
Don't hold back on your tree,
go wild - put anything on there - no poncey colour schemes okay?!!

Oh wow, I love that! Now you've got me all inspired to make something bejewelled for christmas!

I find sophisticated Christmas color schemes very hard to take. A whole Christmas tree done up only in blue and silver, for example. All colors should be used!
