I always like to make at least one DIY ornament for the tree (I still use these diamond ornaments), and this year I saw some pretty geode ornaments at the store and thought that a set of those all in the same color would be a really pretty addition to our Christmas theme.
I found some really pretty lavender geodes online, and it only took a few minutes to make them into hanging works of art!
When you get back up to the top again, bend your wire into a hook, cut the wire with your pliers, and wind that 1/2″ tail you left at the beginning around the bottom of the hook to secure the sides together.
Allow the glue to totally set, and then get ready to hang your pretty stones!
I love the natural element that the stones add to the tree, and the gold gilding looks so pretty with the purple hue. Even though the geode is a bit heavy, the 16 gauge wire is strong enough to easily keep its hook shape while hanging, so you don’t have to worry about rocks randomly crashing to the floor.
If you love crystals or geodes, this is a great way to add a little organic sparkle to you holiday decor this year—in fact, I would say it rocks! xo. Laura
