I don't know about you, but I'm soooo far behind in my holiday preparations, that I'm beginning to think I'm ahead of the game, haha!  So, I'm looking for quick easy ideas to use on my (ahem) last minute gifts and projects.  While looking through the Pottery Barn Teen catalog and BINGO!!  Fun, quick and CUTE inspiration!!

First, the catalog inspiration:


Aaand....My Take!!
 

The main circle is from the Embellishment Pack.  What is nice about this is, it has a different pattern on the "backside", so there is no wrong way to wear the necklace, or if it gets twisted, no worries!  I just looped the chain and using jump rings, added the Findings Baubles and the smaller circle and beads from an old necklace.  Easy Peasy!!

Then I just happened to notice the cute flower paper clips that were also in the pack.





Seriously.....how easy was this to make such CUTE earrings?!!  All I did was use jump rings to hook everything together!! I think both these projects together took me under 15 minutes to make (I spent more time trying different layouts than the actual assembling!!)
 
I think that these would make a great stocking stuffer for a teen girl (or a young at heart lady! haha).  Quick, easy and cute.  What more could one ask for from a homemade gift?!! 
 
I'll be back later this weekend with the project that I did for one of the teachers.  'Till then.....
