Pumpkin Pie Jewelry Set

By General Crafts Contributor Amy from the Etsy Shop DangerousRainboCraft.

Celebrate the holidays with festive pumpkin pie jewelry for yourself or a hostess.

When it comes to the holidays and family get-togethers, I am always excited for my grandmother’s homemade pumpkin pie topped with a nice dollop of cool whip. Make a pumpkin pie jewelry set to wear or give to the host of this year’s Thanksgiving or Christmas dinner.

I love attention-grabbing jewelry. If I’m taking the time to add accessories to my outfit, I want them to be a focal point. I think statement jewelry is a dream for any crafter. It really lets you show off your creativity!

This is the perfect addition to a simple jeans and t-shirt outfit, or a little black dress. This necklace looks like it was purchased for a lot more money than it takes to create it. You’ll want one in a rainbow of colors!

Kids Crafts: Jewelry Making

This week I got to hang out with my school aged niece who was on spring break and she asked me if we could make jewelry. So, I set out to find some fun, easy to follow tutorials for making jewelry we would both be proud to wear! I found some great tutorials for making jewelry with a variety of materials including fabric, paper, washi tape and popsicle/craft sticks! With Mother’s Day just around the corner, I thought it might be a good time for  crafting presents for the mom’s in our lives also.


These fabric bead necklaces are so much fun to make, and to wear! My niece made one for her mom, and I made one for my sister, who is about to have her second daughter sometime this week!

DIY Linen Lined Jewely Box

I bought this jewelry box but found it a bit too precious to use.  So I lined the bottom with some linen and have enjoyed using the jewelry box ever since!

After I got my materials together, I traced the bottoms of each level of the jewelry box on a thin but sturdy cardboard.  Since you’ll be using mod podge, you’ll want to choose a cardboard that can hold up to the moisture.

Upcycled Vintage Jewelry

I’ve got a little satin bag full of the sparkly costume jewelry that both my grandmothers used to wear to parties and I love to peek at their elegance, but I very rarely use them. They are a little too fancy for everyday wear for me and I don’t often have a chance to go somewhere where they would be fitting. So I’ve been on the lookout for some projects to use them with. I love their glamour, they deserve to be used and worn and these projects are just the ticket!

Well of course! A sparkly Christmas tree! I love the idea of making a Holiday display that sparkles and shines with the glint of vintage jewelry.

Ok, a bridal bouquet isn’t really everyday, but what an amazing way to carry memories of those who are no longer around for the wedding with you down the aisle? Such a beautiful bouquet!
