Last week while Mother was here visiting we gathered some supplies from the craft room and made a glittery mess in the kitchen.
To make these Christmas Bells we started by painting a couple of seed starter pots.
The paper mache type.
After the paint was dry we added some glitter.
We wired jewelry parts for hanging inside the bells, hung them from a pretty bow and embellished them with ribbon and vintage millinery flowers.
I'm pretty pleased with how they turned out, but the glitter was everywhere.
We laughed and talked and Mother loved the glittery mess. It brought back memories of her childhood Christmas crafting.
Maybe we'll do paper chains and ornaments for our next crafty project together.
No glitter involved.
