A few weeks ago I was asked to create some simple, year-round decorations using chunky wooden beads for Mollie Makes Magazine's special Winter Homestyle supplement (out with the current issue!). I decided to add a touch of ombre (in layers of eco-freindly white paint) to give the decorations a 'dipped' look and add a bit of cool contrast to the warmth of the wood.
Here they are, hanging out with one of my little cacti! For the full how-to check out issue 58 of Mollie Makes! (I also had the fun job of playing with the free mini-weaving-loom that comes with the issue to make the demonstration weaving you'll see on the cover).
