Merry Flu Season! I am feeling a bit under the weather, and by 'Bit' I mean something much, much more. But I thought, hey, I am up waiting for a DVD to burn for my Christmas lesson in Church tomorrow, so why not show off my latest ornaments?
***Update- feeling so much better :) ***
My craft group knows that if I am even going to bother bringing a craft with me to craft night, nine times out of ten, I am wrapping something in Jute with Elmer's glue. I know, not too classy, skilled, or original, but the budget is tight, and I got a few rolls of jute at Target's one spot this year, so cut me a break. For this little baby, I just started at the top with elmer's, wrapped the jute around, and repeated. Then I threw a little ripped muslin on top for a bow. Not hard, done in like 5 minutes, and pretty darn cute. So if your tree is looking a little too shiny and needs an earthy element, I recommend my "Craft night special." :)
You may be noticing the foil star behind the jute ornament- It was our family night this week, and I have to say, the easiest throw- together craft project ever! We read this story: The Christmas Tree
and followed the directions at the end for making ornaments. Trust me, this makes kids SO happy, and I can almost guarantee you have spare cardboard, foil, and glue laying around.
Alright, just one more view of the ornaments along with my Muslin Scrap or "Shower Puff" ornament from last week. I hope you are feeling better than I am :) Merry Christmas!
