Well, while we were making them I started thinking about other ideas that the crystals could be used for as well as snow flake decorations. The girls loved how much the crystal sparkled so I thought they might like to have a little bit of sparkle to wear rather than just admire in a window.

I bent pipe cleaners into various shapes, including hearts, stars and circles and got to work with the crystal process all over again. You can find the instructions in the original post here.

Now that we've made our pretty pendants, my mind has gone into overdrive thinking about all the other pretty, sparkly things we could make with borax crystals - fairy wands, rings, beads, tiaras... Plus I think a batch of tiny crystal hearts may be in order for Valentine's Day which is just around the corner.
Ah, so many ideas, so little time!
