More ornament crafting
Our big craft buddy, Big A came over for some more crafting fun last week. Christmas ornaments and decorations were our focus...
The "candy cane" ornaments on the bottom are Peelu's. Hot Rod gave her pipe cleaners to string her beads on and they worked really well for her because the beads stayed put and didn't slide off so easily. I found the idea for the snowflake bead ornaments here. Sorry about the light not being so good because these ornaments are really bright and colorful.
The we moved on to some simple collage garlands that I saw on Scrumdilly-do. Big A finished his but my maniacs are still working on theirs.
Here's Big A's finished garland but I didn't get a picture of it hanging up:
And then the kids came up with their own Christmas tree forest in between my gathering the supplies for the other projects. They turned out so cute. They came up with their own idea of using clothespins to hold up the trees, which were glued to craft sticks.
Ahhh...another day of crafts accomplished. AND we got to share the bounty - Big A went home with a bag of hand crafted goodness.
Wife to a VERY understanding man (even if he does roll his eyes and duck back into his garage way too much); mother to three maniacs,crafter, professional volunteer, crazed maniac in her own right...yep, that about covers it for now.
It's about crafts, family, gardening, life....really whatever the heck I want to talk about. I am wordy, messy, opinionated, disorganized, lacking in focus, manic, craft obsessed...and pretty much this all spills out on the pages of this blog. You've been warned!
