12 Days of Christmas--Day 6

On the sixth day of Christmas Beyond the Picket Fence gave me, a knifecicle to hang on my tree.  Yes, I said knifecicle.

These are quick and easy.  I am showing them on an outdoor tree because doing my 12 Days of Christmas early means I don't have my Christmas tree up yet, but also I really like them outdoors.  Not sure if they would survive a Montana winter, but maybe?  They certainly would in a warmer climate and might bring a little glittery "ice" to some of you who don't get ice on a regular basis.  I started with some Modge Podge and Martha glitter.

I brushed the Modge Podge onto the blade of old silver plated knives.

I drilled holes through the top and added a sheer ribbon.

I cut the ribbon narrow on one side to get the ribbon through the hole.

I think knifecicles would be beautiful on a typical tree with the lights reflecting off of the silver and glitter or on a bare branch tree like I show.
