BMB Owl Earrings

Hi Everyone!
I received these adorable Blue Moon Bead Owl Charms in the mail last week from DCWV. I thought they were perfect for a pair of earrings.

I hung these sleeping beauties off 3 small black Blue Moon Bead rings.

They couldn't be more cute!!

Deer Silhouette Home Decor

Have you wanted to create a home decor project, that seems a bit larger scale than normal? And you just can't find the right supplies to make it, without piecing together paper, and having seams in your project?

Well DCWV has heard your request and created larger stacks.

For my latest project I used the DCWV Project Basics: 24"x36" Silver Glitzy Glitter Sheet. Yes, that is 3 feet of amazing silver glitter!!

I have been in love with the 'deer silhouette' for a while now, but thought now is the perfect time to custom make some decor of my own. Now that I have larger scale paper to work with. Of course, I used some old pallet wood. I just love the look of it after staining it. I don't even sand it down or clean it up. This is raw, dirty, used pallet wood!!

In the DCWV DIY Project Wreath Stack, there are cardboard corrugate sheets. I used one of these as the backing for the deer. Just to give it a little more stability.
I found an image of the deer silhouette online, and printed it out. Traced it on to the corrugate, cut it out and sprayed it metallic silver.
I then traced it onto the DCWV Silver Sheet and cut that out.
I secured them together, and then to the wood.

The Deer Silhouette Decor fits perfectly into my new Winter Season home decor theme. It accents my handmade metallic silver Christmas Trees and my recent Faux Tin SNOW Blocks project, perfectly!

If you love these Wood Trees, head over to my Etsy to order!

Bring on Winter!
And... I mean it, please. We are still flooded with heat here in Southern California! We want Winter!

Faux Tin Snow Block Decor

Faux Corrugate Tin SNOW Blocks

I love the look of corrugate tin, and with a few supplies, you can make them yourself! These fun blocks were so easy, and so fun to make!

I grabbed a card from the DCWV Corrugate Cards Set, and cut out the letters needed.
Grab some metallic silver spray paint, and paint the letters.
Cut a couple of blocks out of wood, and spray paint those metallic silver also.
Choose your favorite print from the DCWV DIY Project Stack Holiday Favor Boxes and cut out some pieces to fit on the front of the blocks. Using some ModPodge, secure the paper to the dried blocks.

I also punched out some of the glittery snowflakes from the back of the stack, and placed them on the blocks.
Layer each block up how you like it.

And now you have some chic faux tin Holiday decor!

Deer Charm Necklace

Christmas is coming up, and I love to put together an entirely new outfit for the day. I received some FotoBella Juniper Berry Charms this month, and I knew I had to make a necklace with them!

I fell in love with this Deer Charm, it is 2.5" tall! I paired it with some fun Blue Moon Beads clear faceted beads, metallic silver beads and this incredible triple link Blue Moon Beads Chain.

I can't wait to wear this!
