Welcome to Hemp Beadery’s craft blog. Hemp products can be used to make hemp jewelry, dream catchers, macrame snowflakes, home decor, hats, belts, embellish handmade cards and more!
These tiny parcels hanging from your Christmas will intrigue family and friends who will all wish to know what is inside them! Wrap your small box in pretty scrapbooking paper, tie with lengths of hemp twine left over from another project and add a Christmas charm before the final knot and bow.
So what do these boxes of ours contain? Perhaps a pair of diamond earrings? Maybe tickets for a round the world cruise? Money? Sorry to disappoint you, but they just contain a free give away mini bar of soap from the local store.
Christmas Gift Bags
Take a pack of mini-sized gift bags, some Christmas charms, a length of thin wire, hemp twine in green and red, a pokey tool and some clear tape and make these decorated gift bags. The mini-sized bags are an ideal size for special chocolates or hemp jewellery from Hemp Beadery!
Chalkboards are all the rage at the moment, so why not rummage through your craft stash and decorate a small board for your craft room, kitchen or child’s bedroom? The edges of our board are covered in washi tape, and we found stamped images, paper and lace flowers, hessian, recipes cut from a sheet of scrapbooking paper, paper doilies and tiny gems to creat this design.
These large clothes-pegs are ideal for keeping paper work together, displaying photos or recipes. They can stand up, lay flat or be turned on their side, depending on your mood at the time. Our holder was covered in scrapbooking paper, given a coating of Mod Podge and when dry decorated with flowers, lace, stamped images and tied with brown, turquoise and beige twine. On the reverse side is the word ‘Peace’.
Crochet your own eco friendly shopping bag in the color of your choice using our 1 mm hemp twine balls. This bag took approximately 1 1/2 balls of hemp twine. The bag was crocheted by a beginner, and although a crochet expert may notice that there are one or two mistakes in it, the bag is still functional. Take the eco friendly bag with you when you go shopping or store your fruit and vegetables in it. * Please note: There are many free patterns for such bags on the Internet, this bag was based on a number of them, rather than just one pattern.
Take one pre-cut wooden boot and wrap it several times with thick hemp twine about five inches from the top. Tie twine securely. Take another length of thick twine and create a hanging cord the required length for your display area.
Decorate it with paper doilies, paper flowers, a stamped poinsettia and anything else you wish, plus a handmade macrame hemp twine snowflake.
This decoration is made from music score paper found in the local thrift store and lengths of hemp twine left over from another project.
Roll up four lengths of paper and secure each scroll with a small piece of tape. Wrap together in the middle with red twine, making a loop for hanging on the tree. Wrap both ends with red twine and tie with bows. Create a paper flower by cutting out three circles in different sizes. Scrunch circles up, open them out and glue together in the centres, then glue to the scroll. Decorate edges of flower with gold glitter. Hang on Christmas tree when dry.
The same angel stamp was used on these kraft tags as on the Christmas cards, but with a brown background an entirely different look is achieved. Parts of the angel’s hair and clothing were highlighted with gold glitter, a torn strip of music paper was added at the base and turquoise hemp twine was attached for tying. The tag looks spectacular on a gift wrapped in the music score paper.
The angel stamp, music score paper and white buttons were all treasures found in the local thrift store. Some of the images stamped weren’t perfect, but a white button threaded and tied with red hemp twine hides any imperfection. Gold glitter highlighted stars, harp and halo, and a torn strip of music paper finished the cards off. The end result is a clear and simple set of cards.
Roll up several sheets of music score paper and tie securely with left over lengths of hemp twine. Place in a tall glass vase retrieved from a thrift store and place in the centre of the table or on a side table. Takes about five minutes to do, but looks great!
