A Tutorial, or How My Husband Killed My Christmas Spirit

I was so excited about this little craft of mine. I had all the stuff just laying around, and it was so perfect. So I will tell you just how Hubby killed my Christmas spirit after I show you this awesomeness :)

Okay, Materials needed: A bulb ornament you don't want, scrap muslin (It took about 2 square feet for 1 ornament), and hot glue. That's it! 

So you rip all the muslin into pieces that are about 2 inches square or a little smaller

Then you fold each one twice, and glue the center of the large square to the top of the ornament.
Then you repeat all the way around and down the ornament til you have a happy little puffball :)

And when I showed this adorable ornament to my husband, he responded:
"That looks like one of those shower puffs. It even hangs from a string just like one."

And now that is all I can see. 
Darn the power of suggestion!

  1. Hello,
    I visited your blog today - I saw you on 'A Day With Special K.' Your blog is so pretty. We are a mom and two sister also. Your name BE BOOK BOUND caught my eye, as my daughter is working on her Ph.D. right now and has to read many, many books. We started a blog, and we would love it if you could visit us and follow. I would enjoy coming back to visit with you. You have alot of creative ideas. I hope to hear from you, and have a lovely evening.
