With Christmas just 4 months away it’s time to start thinking about gift ideas.

We all know someone who deserves this one 😉

These little fake pieces of coal are fun and easy to make.

Cover a piece of paper with craft glue, scrunch it up and let it dry.

If you’re planning on turning it into a necklace or earrings poke a hole through it using a darning needle then feed your head pin through the hole.  You can do this before or after it’s dry.

*NOTE* I included links to a few helpful youtube videos below for making jewelry and a cute little gift box.

After the glue is dry, paint it black.  When that dries brush on some gold or silver metallic paint.   Wipe it off while the paint is still wet so you get just a slight sparkle.

If you add too much just go over it again with black paint.  You can also add some glitter if you want more sparkle.
