On the sixth day of Christmas Beyond the Picket Fence gave me, a knifecicle to hang on my tree. Yes, I said knifecicle.
These are quick and easy. I am showing them on an outdoor tree because doing my 12 Days of Christmas early means I don't have my Christmas tree up yet, but also I really like them outdoors. Not sure if they would survive a Montana winter, but maybe? They certainly would in a warmer climate and might bring a little glittery "ice" to some of you who don't get ice on a regular basis. I started with some Modge Podge and Martha glitter.
I brushed the Modge Podge onto the blade of old silver plated knives. I sprinkled glitter on them and set them carefully on a lid to dry. When they were dry I sprayed clear sealer on the glitter to seal it.
I drilled holes through the top and added a sheer ribbon.
I cut the ribbon narrow on one side to get the ribbon through the hole.
I think knifecicles would be beautiful on a typical tree with the lights reflecting off of the silver and glitter or on a bare branch tree like I show.
