Charming Snowman Charm on Fork Easel!!

Hee Hee...Whoowhee...Yippee. I figured out a few things today!!!
Here is my first one like this...lets go a little closer
I have been struggling with wanting to make a hook/hanger on these fork easels for months now...out of the blue (why is it out of the "blue"??lol) I thought of the hooks for "hook n eyes", then it was...how do I get it onto the spoon...I tried to wire it...that didn't work ...this time... I will figure it out later! So, I got out my soldering tape and went for it!! It worked!! Whoo hoo!
Then I wanted to cover up the soldering...I found this "shooting star" earring...I left the back on, and just screwed it on...This looks really washed out...its not, maybe I can get a better photo in the morning. Now for the BEST news...Tinkerverve (I love her blog name) suggested using Diamond Glaze...It was wonderful!!! I brushed it onto the paper, not the glass, it dried so quickly, and clear I'm in love!!! After I take a better picture tomorrow, I'll list this...somewhere...lol. Please, let me know what you think!!! Oh...I'm going to sell the whole kittenkabootle ...one more thing...I soldered around the pebble so I could attach a jump ring...ok, I think I mentioned everything.lol

Great idea with the hook and solder, Laurie! And the bit of glitz to cover it up: the perfect touch.

I found a lovely fork today for $1! And a wee little box made in Italy for $2. I will take pictures! But I've been crafting all afternoon.
