RAINY DAYS CRAFTS
Candles can make a room feel really cosy, especially in the winter time when the dark nights start creeping in. Lanterns are really on trend at the moment, and what better way to make yours stand out than crystallising it. It’s super easy with our non-hotfix crystals and precision glue applicator syringe, and the result looks amazing!
You can choose any colour to crystallize your winter lantern, but we recommend smoked topaz for a warm, festive look. Why not choose a colour to complement the room you’ll be placing it in?
Want to make a carriage clock look a lot more luxurious and extravagant? You can do this by crystallizing the exterior. Covering the entire surface of the clock will really give it the wow factor - and make it look mega expensive. This is also a great project for keeping you occupied for a few weeks! Watch our video to help you create your crystallised carriage clock - it looks so professional that visitors will think you bought it that way.
Picture frames hold our dearest memories - so why not make them even more personal by putting your creative stamp on the frame? Embellishing a photo frame is really easy and super effective. You can crystallize the frame entirely, or make designs such as flowers, palm trees or paw prints in the corners. You choose the colour and size of the crystals for your desired design.
Tip: You should be able to glue the crystal components to any surface or type of photo frame, but we think it looks extra effective on a mirrored frame.
