And what is more exciting than sparkle everywhere? Nothing, that’s what!

Tiffany&Co. Inspired Ornament

Tiffany&Co. Inspired Ornament| Diamond White Daisies

I may not find any Tiffany blue under my tree this year, but at least I can have some Tiffany blue on my tree!

I always find it interesting to see how the final product of a project turns out compared to how I originally imagined it. Sometimes the project just does not work at all and other times what I thought would work turns out to be a complete fail.

“On the Second Day of Christmas I DIYed… a Metallic Swirl Ornament”

The first time I saw these ornaments was last year. I was in the mall looking at everything Christmas. While in Williams-Sonoma, buying cookie cutters, I spotted their Metallic Swirl Ball Ornaments.

Then the Christmas season passed and I forgot all about them.
Until the other day, when I was back at Williams-Sonoma and spooted them again!
So I went home and thought about how I would make my own version. I have yet to find a non-toxic etching set, so I knew that was out of the question.
