New Years Eve Countdown

Saturday, December 27, 2014

The New Years Eve Countdown begins.  Once we wrap up 2014 and tuck it away in our memory box, we can embrace for a whole new year of creativity and inspiration.  I’m so excited to prep for a brand new year, 2015 is going to be a blast.

When I think of New Years Eve, I envision some glitter, glitz, and dazzling glow.  Navy’s, silvers and gilded golds. Popping colors and confetti adding to the night. I started combing around for some inspiration in which you could use DMC floss, yarns and accessories.  il_570xN.249902598

I fell in love with these Embroidered Watches found on Oh Sweet Babies –  These beauties consist of embroidered faces in whimsical styles and are created by Metal et Linnen. Perfect if you’re looking for a creative way to incorporate a little embroidery into your jewelry.  

Adding some stitching to your jewelry turns something from plain to dazzling in seconds like this take on Friendship Bracelets by Material Therapy.  These fabulous friendship bracelets are made with floss, threads and jewels. Very boho chic. a16f681c7a69431ce26638d2bfcbc7d2

After searching for more dazzling floss jewelry inspiration, I came across this Tiny Tassel Bracelet project over at Mazie Hutton – if you love tassels, then you will love this fun project made using DMC floss and jewelry findings.  I love this project just so festive.DSC_0094

The jewelry making doesn’t stop here.  Here is another floss jewelry project you will love. Hardware Store Bracelets on Thanks I Made It -I love the mix of hardware and DMC floss.  Such a clever way to unite two mediums together.DIY_hardware_store_bracelets_3

All these projects are fun and flirty. Perfect accessories to add just the right sparkle to your New Years Eve wardrobe or any outfit waiting for some pizzazz!
