Crafty Ribbons Advent Event Day 17

Good morning everyone, hope you are well :-) Here I am with a wreath for day 17 of our Advent event at Crafty Ribbons Inspiration blog. Today we are sponsored by Whichcraft and dont forget to come along to look at the inspiration and enter our giveaways!
I decorated this wreath with mini baubles through the tinsel using wire to fix them so you can only see the decorations and not the top of the baubles and used the fabulous printed ribbon as my sentiment-it just shows how effective a little bit of printed ribbon can be :-)

So my job was to sort out the curtains and the decor to go with it. The bed was painted white and I chose Turquoise organza for my curtains. I thought for a while what sort of look I wanted and had the idea to make beaded tie backs, I wanted an opulent look so I looked for a good mix of Turquoise and other assorted vintage metallic beads, gem beads and pearls which matched well.  I found a fabulous mix of odd beads on ebay, then bought some plastic rings for my hooks, and the rest I had in my stash.  I also used Tiger tail, crimp beads, crimp covers and my jewellery tools.  I wanted to keep them as random mixes so I made each differently.
