Love Sign made from Dazzled Up Hardware

Hi Everyone! Thanks for reading my blog!

I made a small LOVE sign with keys and a cabinet door. That sign led me to want to make a bigger one. I got the idea from Kathy with her Facebook page, Royale Funky Junque. Please follow her for great inspiration. Please keep reading for the supply list, etc.

I found all the supplies at Hobby Lobby. I had in my mind’s eye what I wanted. First I put the wooden sign in my basket and then went to the hardware aisle. It took me awhile, but I found what I thought was the best hardware for each letter. Then I took everything to checkout. The cashier reminded me that it was NOT half off but that it would be that coming week. So I took pictures of what I still needed to buy and came back later to purchase it HALF OFF. It still costs about $30 in hardware to make it all but I think it is entirely worth it.

Here is the letter L. I am arranging them here along with the rhinestone I want to put along the edge of the sign. I took pictures of the price tags so you would have any idea of the costs.
Here is the letter O. I used two handles and was going to put a Walmart rhinestone button in the middle. But instead I went with a Totally Dazzled pin and used the button on the letter V instead.
Here is the letter V. It definitely needs some bling added.
Here is the letter E. The three rhinestone hardware handles did not have a price and I cannot remember what the price was. I think they were the least expensive in the whole bunch.

Below are some pictures of the finished letters after I added some crystals and other bling. The rhinestone ribbon can be bought at the Dollar Tree. But I needed long pieces so I used the sheet of ribbon you can buy at Totally Dazzled. You just cut into how many rows you want and the length you want.

I added Swarovski Crystals with Gorilla Super Glue.

I plan to give this away as a wedding present for a special couple. I hope they like it. It is both rustic and glamorous at the same time.

Thank you for reading my blog!! It means a lot to me!

Sparkling Leopard Cross

This cross is elegant and sophisticated. It is unique with it’s Leopard Print Ribbon on top of Burlap Ribbon and Rhinestone Bling. My Mom made and designed this cross. I just added the bling. Pictures do not do the sparkle justice. When you walk by it, it just winks at you.

Mom cut out the cross with her jigsaw and painted it black. Then added the burlap ribbon and then the leopard ribbon on top of that. Now for the really fun part…..THE Embellishments.

First we added burlap and ribbon flowers that had brown middles. But it still needed more. lol.

Next, I added a Totally Dazzled pin in the middle of the flowers and then I decided to add a one layer rhinestone piece of ribbon down each branch of the cross.

My Mom loves to make crosses. It brings her peace and happiness. It is great therapy for her after her bout with Cancer.

Jazzed Up Black and White Harlequin Candle

Hi Everyone!

I just want to do a quick post today about making candle pins and adding bling to any candle you may already have in your home.

Harlequin print is my latest obsession. I found this last candle on my Hobby Lobby’s shelf an it was marked down to $3.24. I hope they will get more in and it hasn’t been discontinued. But if it has, have no fear, I will decoupage with rice paper.

Reduced price at Hobby Lobby.

I chose silver to embellish with and found a pin from my order from TOTALLY DAZZLED. I bought the flat head push pins on Amazon and glued one to the back of the pin. I also bought the rhinestone look ribbon at TOTALLY DAZZLED. It comes in a large and wide roll. I cut a section with 5 rows to fit the candle and glued to the bottom of this candle.

I glued the push pin tack onto the bling with E6000.
Wish you could see the sparkle in person.
