3rd Annual Creative Retreat ~ Bellagio ~ Class 2

Nov 22, 2013

Charmed Memento

I shared a sneak peek of my “Tex­tile Col­lage Sam­pler” a few days ago and today I’m shar­ing a sneak peek of my sec­ond class “Charmed Memen­to”. In this class I’ll show you how to take a sim­ple wood­en spool and turn it into a beau­ti­ful piece of wear­able art. You’ll use pieces of linen burlap and scal­lop trim to cov­er the spool then add accents of iri­des­cent rhine­stone trim and vin­tage but­tons. You will cre­ate a unique charm hold­er from cop­per wire that will attach to the base of the spool to dis­play charms like a minia­ture hand­made cro­cheted doily lov­ing­ly cre­at­ed by my mom, a vin­tage but­ton, a glass bot­tle you fill with a bit of sand from Lake Como and a chan­de­lier bead ready for you to add words to from a vin­tage book page. Your unique piece of wear­able art will hang from a neck­lace made from seam bind­ing and a strand of pearl chain which is per­fect since Bel­la­gio is known as the “Pearl of the Lake”.

If you wish, you can con­tin­ue to enjoy cre­at­ing and adding unique charms to make a won­der­ful memen­to. You’ll have fun get­ting cre­ative while fill­ing your charm hold­er with lit­tle memen­tos from this amaz­ing cre­ative retreat. I have a few charms I cre­at­ed from small pieces of washed up lake glass and ter­ra cot­ta that Lau­ra, Vic­to­ria and Car­o­line and I picked up along the shore in 2012. These charms bring back such love­ly mem­o­ries.

Bellagio, Italy
