Simply Charming

Wednesday, October 23, 2013

Week four of our Twelve Weeks of Holiday Projects brings you this fun, easy project created using DMC Color Infusions Memory Thread.

This soft, fiber-wrapped copper wire can be used to embellish all types of needlework and craft projects. It’s colorfast, fade resistant, acid free, and is available in 28 bright beautiful colors, wrapped on a recyclable shuttle to keep the thread tidy and ready to use.

In this project I’ve used three shades of green and plain white Memory Thread to create simple charms that can be used to embellish the stems of your wine glasses, adding a festive touch to an otherwise plain object. One shuttle of each color will make about 4 charms.

The wired thread is shaped into small leaves (shown full-size in the pattern for tracing) and the stems twisted to form a curled hook. Teeny tiny ready-made pompoms adorn each charm, but you can substitute beads or buttons instead.

Click here to get the PDF instructions for making the charms, and visit our Holiday Ideas page for previous projects.

Memory Thread is available at craft needlework stores, or online at Shop DMC.

Happy Crafting!
