CREATE…some XMAS EYE CANDY

I’ve always been fascinated by being able to look inside things… don’t tell me you didn’t love looking at x-rays? I can remember my total fascination for those first SWATCH watches where you could look at the mechanism because the back of it was transparent…

Now, fast forward what feels like a millenia and I’ve fallen in love with these DIY Christmas ornaments…

The collection I’ve put together comes from several different wonderful blogs and sites and all have one element in common: THE TRANSPARENT CHRISTMAS BAUBLE…

Remember this post?… Well this is what got me fixated on the infinite possibilities a simple and traditional xmas ball ornament can have if you let yourself break the rules of the traditional christmas and give CREATIVITY the lead role…

Please delight yourself with all these creative eye candy diy ideas that can even become a tradition…like making one for each year, for each child or granchild… remember to let creativity reign this christmas

SO WHICH ONE ARE YOU GOING TO TRY?

…this are so good looking, DELICIOUS EYE CANDY I’d say, but most importantly EASY TO MAKE, no strange stuff needed, you can find everything at your local craft store, even the miniatures (by the architecture section, at least that’s where I’ve seen this, you can buy a whole city in that part of a craft/hobby store)…
