Shimmery crystal decoration thingys for my flowers

Recommended Posts

You can make them for cheap!! I bought a bag of the beads for like $4 and the wire for like $2ish. That made me about 10-15 of them (depending on the amount of beads in the bag). Totally easy to make! They have a nice sparkle to them.

These are called bouquet jewels. I made mine. I only use genuine swarvoski crystals, so they were a bit more than quoted above. They're fairly simple to make. I also used crystal headpins, to give an extra sparkle at the top.

I used Swarvoski crystals. They aren't that much more if any. Use coupons too! They always help!

I am using the rhinestone starfish in my bouquet and I got rhinestone palm trees and flip flops for my BM bouquets.

 

So, your crystals will take the place of that and I think will look lovely! They are easy to add and take away so once you have the bouquet, just play around with it until it's perfect for you! :-)

You might check to see if anyone makes the same thing with Czech glass instead of Swavorski crystals. They don't sparkle quite as much, but you get the same effect.

I love the way they sparkle!
How do you think they would look interspersed throughout a floral bouquet? I found a site that shows step by step instructions on making these, how difficult was it for you to do? And how many did you make? Sorry, one more question, where did you get your supplies to make them?
Thanks so much!

I found them pretty easy to make. All you do is twist the wire. I made about a dozen of them. They are now sitting in one of my craft drawers. If I have time tonight I'll try to take pictures. I got all of my supplies from either Michaels or AC Moores.

I was in Michael's and A C Moore yesterday and they did have these things. There was a "wedding" aisle and that's where I saw them, I think. Kinda hard to remember, cuz I was chasing a 4 year old maniac around most of the time.

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
    • Thanks! I had it printed out. Very useful!!
