These rings have been hand designed with beautiful glass seed beads. The red and white ring does have two acrylic beads (the larger beads). For two of the rings, I arranged the beads on buttons and then glued the buttons onto the ring blanks. One of them has the bead design created on the rounded part of a glass gem.
This craft was just for fun. However, I think I'll use it for some organization and storage of craft items. This cup was made with little pieces of pictures from 2014 calendars all glued together with ModPodge. A coat of clear craft indoor/outdoor varnish was added to provide more protection against water or moisture and to make the cup stronger. To form the shape of the cup, I covered a foam cup with plastic wrap and built the calendar cup around the outside of it.
Hat and Scarf Set
This hat and scarf set was made especially to go in our "Blessing Bag." A blessing bag contains some little items that are helpful for homeless people. Ours has in it soap, toothpaste and toothbrush, three granola bars, and other little items. It is quite cold right now, so I added this hat and scarf set. There is also a little tract and a New Testament included, food for their souls as well as their bodies.
