12 Days of Christmas--Day 6

Tuesday, November 6, 2012

On the sixth day of Christmas Beyond the Picket Fence gave me, a knifecicle to hang on my tree.  Yes, I said knifecicle.

These are quick and easy.  I am showing them on an outdoor tree because doing my 12 Days of Christmas means I don't have my Christmas tree up yet, but also I really like them outdoors.  Not sure if they would survive a Montana winter, but maybe?  They certainly would in a warmer and might bring a little glittery "ice" to some of you who don't get it.  I started with some Modge Podge and Martha glitter.
I brushed the Modge Podge onto the blade of old silver plated knives.
I sprinkled glitter on them and set them carefully on a lid to dry.  When they were dry I sprayed clear sealer on the glitter to seal it. 
I drilled holes through the top and added a sheer ribbon.
I cut the ribbon narrow on one side to get the ribbon through the hole.
I think knifecicles would be beautiful on a typical tree with the lights reflecting off of the silver and glitter or on a bare branch tree like I show.

Now it is your turn to link up your Christmas ideas.  This linky party will remain open through Christmas.  I will be sharing it every day of my 12 Days of Christmas.  There will be no 12 days of Christmas posts on Sundays or Wednesdays, I will share my regular Sunday Verses and linky party on those days.  Please read the linky party rules, thanks!
