Crafty Ribbons Advent Calendar

Hey everyone, I hope you are well! I am here with an advent calendar I made using Crafty Ribbons Christmas Advent ribbon, some beautiful snowflake felt, Crafty Ribbons Swiss Dots ribbon, plain white felt and my sewing machine for our Christmas challenge at Crafty Ribbons.

I started by cutting white felt bigger than the ribbon in strips of six to a line to fit on the snowflake felt. I placed each strip on the felt and saw the kind of distance I wanted between them. I then began sewing each strip of felt and the advent ribbon onto the snowflake material. I used the slight line marked between each number as where to sew each section-making pockets on each.

I then attached the swiss ribbon to hang it from.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
Decorate to Celebrate: Anything Goes
Ikes world Challenge: Christmas in July
ABC Christmas: No is for No rules
Christmas at Sweet Stampin: Anything Goes
Crafty Gals Corner: Monochromatic

Home Decor Project-Beaded Curtain Tie Backs

Good afternoon everyone, hope you are well :-) I am here with my favourite home decor make in a while. My father made me a four poster bed as he had some spare wood and I have always wanted one! 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. I started by doubling my tiger tail, and folding this over, then fixing the first ring with a crimp and covered this with the crimp cover. I then threaded m…
