Laurie’s DIY project this week is another great example of taking something very ordinary and transforming it into something absolutely beautiful and unique. Can you believe those are just bits of rock candy strung on a piece of wire? Oh, and don’t you love how Laurie referred to it as “natural bling”…
1. Begin by using your wire cutters to cut 1.5 inch lengths of wire. You’ll need one per crystal. (see figure 1)
generous glob of hot glue. Stick the end of the hook into the glue,
and hold until it has cooled. If it wiggles a bit, add another dab
to secure it. (see figure 2)
then a bow around the wire at the top of the crystal. Trim your ribbon
sparkle; on bare branches in a vase, from a tree, in a floral
arrangement, from garland or an arch. If you’re feeling extra crafty,
construct an armature and hang the crystals from it like a chandelier.

If you have a lot of short candy strings, you can join them together using hot glue to make longer strands
Laurie, your the best!
