Rainbow Sprinkles Necklace

 Holiday baking season is almost here! Woohoo!
 This year I wanted to create a special gift for all my baker friends! 
What better than a rainbow sprinkle necklace?

What you'll need:
Nonpareil sprinkles
Cabochon setting
3D Crystal Lacquer

Add a layer of sprinkles to your cabochon. Give it a little shake to make sure every little nook is covered.

Starting with the outer perimeter, add a layer of the crystal lacquer. If you get any air bubbles, take a small toothpick and pop them or drag them to the side until they come out. That's it! Allow 24 hours to completely dry.

It would also makes a sweet gift for the little ones. By the smile on her face, I'm pretty sure my daughter has confiscated this one :)

Chalkboard Coasters

The holidays are right around the corner which means a calendar filled with lots of social gatherings! This year I wanted to create a fun hostess gift to pair with a bottle of wine/cider/etc.  

What you'll need:
Chalkboard spray paint
Ceramic tiles
Cork sheets or felt
Adhesive or hot glue gun

Lay out your tiles and spray with chalkboard paint. I did two coats and allowed one hour drying time between coats.

In the scrapbook section of Michael's, I found some awesome cork sheets that I cut to fit the back of the tile. You could also use felt. These will protect the tile from scratching furniture surfaces. Spread a layer of glue & attach to the tile. Let dry.

Now guests can write their name, doodle and keep track of their drinks.

 When the fun is done, clean up is a breeze.
Simply wipe down with a damp cloth and let air dry. 

 Wrap the tiles with some pretty ribbon & a piece of chalk and 
you've got a fun, affordable & unique gift!
