...the mystery craft...

So here is the making of the craft I got yesterday at the Christmas Bazaar (read the post below this if you're not sure what I'm talking about)

The materials-a string of garland with wood ornament cut-outs on it, glue, cardboard letters, non-toxic acrylic paint, and various glitters and sequins.

Paint, apply glitter, sequins, and letters... and wah-lah!A fun garland to hang on the Christmas tree! The colors on my tree are mostly blue and lime-green, so I went with those colors. I think I got a bit out-of-control with the glitter and the sequins, but I haven't done a crafty project in a while and it was hard to contain myself!
I made it for Isaac. (obviously) I figured it was more fun than just one ornament...although for his first Christmas next year he'll probably get one of those too. In my mind I think it'll be fun to make one for all our kids as their own special thing to put on the tree every year... we'll see when the time comes. I know I'LL have fun putting it on the tree THIS year:)

Yippee...I get to make the first comment on the ornament!!! I think it's really pretty. I like the colors you chose. I think the idea about the special ornaments is great. What we do is get an ornament for each of the kids every year and I put their name and the year on it with a sharpie. Then each year they put all their ornaments on the tree. And when they get a place of their own one day, I'll give them all of their ornaments to start their tree decorating with. It's something I read when Aaron was born and I thought it was a good idea. Just something to think about! :o) Lori
