christmas bauble with practice piece decoration

You can use some of your practice pieces or mistake pieces to decorate Christmas baubles with & end up with one that isn't easy to do again. But it makes some good use of those instead of throwing them away too.

That's a super idea for 1-of-a-kind decorations! Uses up all those ufo bits, too. Do you think my weird amoebas could work here? ha ha

Suztats,
I think your beads might be able to be used for something like this. Depends on how you would like it to look. Your beads are endless array of possiblities. Glad to see you stopped by. Hugs,

TypsTatting,
Thankyou! I'm so glad that you like the suggestions I offer to others on the possibilities of things to use practice & mistake pieces for. No reason to waste them, but alot of reason to put them to good use as well. Happy Holidays to you too.

What a good idea! Must turn my box with scrap upside down too! (I have more scrap than good results!)

BSOTF said...

Ingrid,
I'm sure you have more good results than you know hiding in that pile. You will be amazed at what you discover hiding & waiting to come out to life. Glad that you like this suggestion. Good can come from those pieces more than expected & in other ways too.

Tats,
Thankyou, Glad to see you are no longer missing! LOL! I know why you showed back up..cause you wanted to see if your gift is under the tree yet...LOL!

Great idea...I love this and I can either decorate my tree or give them to fellow tatters as gifts and they wouldn't know they were my "mistakes". Happy holidays and thanks for sharing!

Linda,
It makes good use of practice pieces & makes something one of a kind at the sametime. That's what my blog is about, to get others to think outside the box when doing things. Glad you enjoy your visit here.

Very lovely baubles you have tatted up!

Singtatter,
I'm so glad that you like them. You & I know that there are many ways that practice pieces & mistake pieces can be put to use. Most of my baubles I did tat from start. So either way you can make lovely baubles.
