Christmas Ornaments Past
I made these one year too. I have so many that I made, golly. This year, our tree will be ornament-less (puppy proofed). It'll be lights only, but pretty as well.
I had so much creativity and motivation back then. I even made these. I think I will check more books out of the library to get more ideas for next year.
I made these with all sorts of decorated "cookies" for an entire elementary class. I used to make a homemade ornament for each student in my kids class for the Christmas school party. I sure miss those days. Hopefully, when my grand kids are older I can help with their class party (if they still have them by then).
I made these from toilet paper rolls, and gifted them to my family for Christmas.
I made these and gifted them one year also. I still have some apples and skewers to make them again.
These were fun to make as well, and were also gifted. Instructions are on my S.C.R.A.P. blogspot.
I made these for an entire elementary class as well. Made from brown paper bags. I should put a tutorial up for this one as well, on my other blog.
I made these one year too - from recycled medicine cups. The instructions are also on my S.C.R.A.P. blogspot.
I got to the point where my family told me they had "enough" ornaments so I quit making them. I am motivated to work on something new for next year after looking through all my old photos. I made so many of them.
