Looking for project ideas to keep you busy during the colder months? Spring may be on the horizon – let's hope so anyway! – but when the weather is dark and gloomy and the temperatures are low, what better way to spend your free time than to wrap up warm and create beautiful crafts with Swarovski hotfix crystals?
Here, you’ll discover some great winter projects you can create with Swarovski hotfix crystals.
Winter style lantern
Escape the cold winter weather by creating a beautiful, glitzy lantern. Helping to bring warmth and cosiness into the home, winter lanterns are pretty simple to bling up. Simply choose your favourite Swarovski hotfix crystals, then apply them onto the frame of the lantern for a glittering, wintery look.
While any colour crystals will work well, if you want to stick to a winter theme, you’ll want to opt for a warm colour such as topaz.
During winter, we tend to become much more sentimental about friends and family. What better way to remember your loved ones than to crystallise your favourite photos? Simply buy a frame, or crystallise the frame you already have.
You have a choice of designs you can incorporate onto the photo frame. You could either completely crystallise it, giving it a real glamorous effect, or you could use the crystals to create small designs such as hearts, flowers and paw prints.
If you’re an avid tea or coffee drinker, why not add a little glamour to your daily fix by crystallising your thermal cup? Depending upon the material of the cup, you can use Swarovski hotfix crystals to create either a full-on crystallised look, or you can create your own motif or design.
Winter fashion accessories
Finally, why not use your spare time to bling up your winter fashion accessories? Swarovski hotfix crystals can be used to add a glitzy touch to scarves, gloves and hats. You’ll find a plethora of ideas on sites such as Pinterest, and you can really personalise the designs to make them unique to you.
So, there you have it – some of the best cold weather projects you can create with Swarovski hotfix crystals. If you’re looking for a hobby to keep you entertained throughout the colder months, crystallising accessories is a great idea. It’s inexpensive too, particularly if you take advantage of our discounted wholesale packs.
