As I build my inventory of items for the upcoming craft fair, I wanted to cease the chance to create something that has been swirling around in my head for a couple months now.
It all started with a question from my son, "how does Santa get into our house?" I told him Santa usually comes down the chimney which lead to a host of other questions like "doesn't he burn his butt?" and "where is our chimney?" (a very good question as I don't actually know...). Then I resorted to something I think my parents once told me since our childhood homes didn't have fireplaces ... he uses a "magic" key.
And that lead me to this project.
I needed a few simple supplies which included ...
- a plastic silver bracelet (purchased for $0.99 at Michael's craft store)
- a swirly wooden "S" letter (purchased at Hobby Lobby for $1.99)
- ribbon (had at home)
- findings (a jewelry accessory, pic below)
The first step was to use the metallic spray paint to cover all sides of the "S."
Next I added a finding to the top of the key, and I used the thicker piece of ribbon (leftover from the smaller one I cut for the bells) to string it through the circle, tying that to the bottom of the "S" and made a bow. And presto, that's it!
