Something A Little Different For The Christmas Tree ...

 Hello my dear friends,

do you remember my bundles of blowy flowers?

If you liked those, you might just like my newest creations too. I have been working on them since a little while and I had already shared them on my Instagram page but not yet here on Todolwen.

At the beginning of the year I had bought some vintage/antique candle clip holders from Germany in the colors silver and gold and I wanted to turn them into something really neat and my blowy flowers came to my mind and today I am sharing how my idea turned out and I hope you will like what you see.

Unfortunately not everything works out that I make.

In my first attempt I had made my first ornaments with the silver candle clips holders and just loved how they turned out until a few days ago when I discovered that the glue that I had used made the metal rust, yes RUST! I had made a set of 4 and now I am taking them apart again because they look so 'unpretty'. The glistening glass glitter has now a dirty look which I am not happy with.

Can you see the ugly rust in the picture? 
I was and am so unhappy about this.

So then I made a set with the golden candle clips ...

... and those didn't rust thankfully!

I know it's very very short notice but these will be listed in my Etsy shop today at 2 PM ET (that's in about 30 mins. I had looked at the clock wrong but couldn't go back then after sharing it on Instagram.)There is only one set of them as of right now but I am happy to make a few more of them.

Thank you so much for stopping by here at Todolwen, it is always so nice when you do.

I hope you are well my dear friends and life is treating you kind.

Have a peaceful, safe and creative day.
