Hair Bows

I am making a lot of these as I wear my hair back most days

I made these while sitting at the coffee shop

Metallic spider web cloth and sheer mesh from old Halloween Costumes and Sculpy Bats I made wired on to barrettes

Black plastic tape measures and skull beads from Halloween wired to barrettes

Wire and bead Valentine decoration

I was given a few hundred 12 inch long wire and bead sprays that had been intended for bouquets and I have been figuring out crafts for them.
Here is my wire “lace” valentine made by twisting the wires together and looking them through each other in the middle.



More DIY – Skeleton Key Boutonniere and necklace

I am changing our Handfasting site into less of a blog and more of an official wedding site so I am moving my DIY and art projects form it to here

When Alex and I met at a LARP game we just sort of noticed each other
but never connected until March of 2010 when we met at a Masquerade and I
was wearing a Steampunk outfit that included a necklace with tons of
keys. Alex later told me he had wanted to play with my keys all night as
we sat and flirted.

So when I took that very heavy necklace apart I made parts of it over
into other stuff, including the necklace I will wear and the boutonniere
I made for Alex, and soon Earrings for me. I wired them for a little
more interest.
