Beautifying the ordinary

As usual, I was shopping for groceries after work and took my obligatory “exited-expecting-mom-stroll” down the baby isle. While I was looking at binkies for the millionth time, I reached the same disappointing conclusion as always: that I needed to go to a expensive boutique to get the ones with a little personality (that does not include Disney or Dora the Explora)!

I found myself staring at a couple of neutral pacifiers which   promised that 1.) they had the perfect nub for a little one to suck on (only in natural and good materials of course) and, 2.) with a breathable plastic rim, which is much better for sensitive skin. Very impressive I must say, but the only drawback was that those binkies’ designs were making me yawn on the inside. sigh.

Then the thought hit me. It would only take a couple crystals, some half-pearls, strong glue, and some stunning ribbons to outshine the contenders. Easy.

     

1. It’s helpful to create your design before you start gluing on your gems. Use a strong glue that  will make it impossible for a child to loosen the crystals.

2. Apply your crystals with a  pair of tweezers.
